I was honestly hoping Sanchez would get the start for the first 5 games. And maybe (if we are lucky) pull out 2 wins. Then start Geno against the steelers and a slightly easier schedule. A perfect time for a rally cry from the team. I could see 6 wins to put us at 8 for the season. That would be an amazing accomplishment in my eyes. I think Jetskidd is dead on. At least give Geno some time to get a feel for the NFL. The Wolves are hungry!!! Brick wall


Just in reference to the get a feel for the NFL comment I am of the opinion film cannot get you up to speed and neither can holding a clipboard from the sidelines Geno would benefit the most from getting to experience the speed and learn by making mistakes and learning from them. If he has the mental fortitude the learning process won't scar him and if he is a film junkie like everyone has indicated he will learn from the mistakes he makes.

If the D gels and the offense manages to be even half decent we could win 8 games.

He loved Geno before the draft. I could see him def wanting to develop and mold him while he has a chance to. Who knows if Marty will be here next season.

Honestly I think Rex would defer to Marty and dub Geno the starter if Marty was clear cut that Geno was the winner.

I think it's up to Marty and Idzik. If they both want Geno as the starter, there is nothing Rex can do about it.

Not really sure why Rex would overrule Marty ... Sure Rex wants to win and Marty will want a QB who's gonna make him look good not bad so they both go hand in hand.

When you think about it, these three men (Idzik, Ryan, and Morninwhig) all have different agendas. Ryan is trying to save his job, and probably views Sanchez as his best shot to get a few wins under his belt, early on. Idzik's honeymoon in NY is already over, as the media has decided to go to war with him for whatever reason, and he's probably anxious to use his free year seeing what Geno Smith is about, regardless of the results. Morninwhig probably figures if he can successfully mentor a young QB like Smith, he might be able to translate it into another head coaching opportunity.

Too bad the fans that pay their salaries, and will have to live with the outcome of their power struggle, aren't considered as part of the equation.

I agree. I was pretty much saying I don't care what Rex thinks about the QBs because I think he doesn't have any say so.

Now I want Geno to start just to kill all this QB talk. The biggest concern is if Geno looks Average but don't win games. That will probably lead to Rex & staff getting fired, and Marty won't get to groom him for this system.

I honestly feel that if Geno looks Average we will find a way to win games because an Avg or even slightly below avg offense with the kinda defenses we should have under Rex should keep us in most games.

But it's going to take that defense some time to find itself it looks like. They're weak at LB and safety right now. There's a few guys that have to take a step forward (Davis, Allen, Milliner) before they're going to be a solid defense.

Offensively and defensively they have to establish an identity and that takes time. If the offense continues to go 3 and out and turn the ball over and they can't win field position battles, even a good defense is going to get worn out.

I think they need above average QB play in order to be able to stay in games early in the season.

Yea I get that early in the season I think things may be a bit painful to watch but by the end we will definitely see a lot of things improve especially defensively. If Milliner is healthy I expect to be able to put him out there and tell him to hold down his guy and he will do an above avg job.

Safety worries me most but we have found ways to manage before with Eric Smith we can figure it out with Jarrett and Allen

They have the benefit of being a more athletic defense than they were last year so that should help them while they figure things out. And once the D-line gets healthy, they're going to be very good.

Im not to sure why Marty would come out publicly and say that hes voting for Geno... I think this is another ploy by the media to stir the pot if Rex does not name Geno the starter. I believe he will be named the starter but gosh.. i feel like everyone needs to just take a chill and let things play out. For all we know its happy as rainbows between Rex and the front office.

Its prob 50/50 on being an accurate sentiment with a legit source but when it comes down to it when we drafted Geno that had to be Marty's call. Sure as hell wasn't Rex getting to make a ruling on an offensive player. Bet Marty pounded the table for that pick, so Geno really is his guy.

One bad preseason game doesn't really lean me in any direction. I had my skepticism about Geno pre-draft, but I do believe he can be a very successful QB and Marty really might be the perfect guy to develop him. Id rather him make mistakes in preseason and perfect them during the season. If we play mediocre offseason and he doesn't turn the ball over like Sanchez, we might not be terrible. Let the kid learn and develop and who knows, we might have someone to actually build around.
