Jets will likely give Geno Smith a chance to start this season

ESPN’s Adam Schefter believes that Mark Sanchez is the favorite to win the Jets starting quarterback job now that David Garrard has retired.  He also believes that rookie Geno Smith will get a oppurtunity at some point to start as well in order for the Jets to see what kind of player he is.

I agree with Schefter, Sanchez has a shot at being the starter for their season opener against the Bucs because of his experience.  But at the end of the day, if he struggles early on, I don’t believe the Jets will hesitate to pull the plug on him in favor of Smith.
