The New York Jets are having an open quarterback competition and the media has been loving it. Whether Geno Smith or Mark Sanchez ends up being the man in charge, you can expect a feeding frenzy from the New York media, but it is only going to get worse because Smith could still see the field even if he is not the starter.
Remember the always entertaining Tebow packages from last season? Well, change Tebow to Geno and we could be in for another treat, courtesy of Rex Ryan.
From Rich Cimini of ESPN New York:
Ryan said they could have a read-option package for Geno Smith even if he’s the backup. Kinda like the … uh, Tebow plan. #Jets

Yeah, cause that worked out so well when Tebow was in the mix.
Anytime you take a quarterback who is already shaky out for a few snaps just to put in a rusty quarterback, you are putting your team at risk.
It is a terrible strategy that has not worked to this point, so you have to wonder why Ryan and the Jets could possibly think this is a good idea.
