Mark Sanchez doesn’t expect Geno Smith to beat him out

AP

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez says he isn’t giving a lot of thought to losing the starting job to rookie Geno Smith.

I don’t plan on that happening,” Sanchez said, via the New York Daily News. “I’m planning on playing, I’m planning on starting.”

Sanchez also said that he’s happy to help Smith in any way he can, and that one of the reasons he’s secure in helping Smith is that he’s secure in his belief that he’ll be the starter when it’s all said and done.

“Part of that comes when you’re just confident in yourself. If I was insecure about something or . . . can’t handle this competition, maybe I wouldn’t say much to him. Maybe I’d be a little scared to give him help,” said Sanchez. “But I don’t feel like that. I just don’t. That’s not my personality. I’m confident, I’m ready to go, I can do it, I know I can.”

Sanchez said he’s rooting for Smith to do well, and that he’s also rooting for the other two quarterbacks on the roster, Greg McElroy and Matt Simms, to do well. He just thinks they won’t do as well in training camp as him.

  1. I hope not. Do Jets fans think Mark cares about their opinion? It’s the Jets! I guarantee they do not win the SB this year…. GUARANTEE! (I know, bold prediction)

  2. Sanchez better hope Smith beats him out. The Jets are destined for a 4-12 type season. Sanchez could collect a fat paycheck from the bench, stay healthy, and most importantly, stay out of the spotlight before getting cut.

  3. The staff and front office is more afraid of him looking GOOD than not. I say he sits and Smith starts (unless he looks like he’ll be an embarassment).

    Ah, that explains Favre’s behavoir when he flat out refused mentor or even say so much as hello to Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.

  5. Why must the world be subject to such inane and absurd statements. Can’t Jets PR just shut him up and let him practice his butt fumbles?

  6. Really…what could he possibly teach him…how not not to run into the butt of your guard or how to be next to last in total QBR the last 3 seasons?!?

  7. Just start the season early, to spare us another couple of months of Marky Mark giving his positive spin on the situation and how THIS TIME he will take it serious and improve.

  8. Part of that comes when you’re just …. trying to talk yourself into believing something. This kid has no clue about how to lead. Yea, he’s ready to lead the league in turnovers again maybe.

  9. Sanchez just doesn’t get it, this is his last year with the Jets whether he sits on the bench or carries a clipboard, you can’t talk your way into the starting quarterback job, which is exactly what he’s trying to do, your reputation precedes you, and God knows with the damage he’s the done in the last two years there’s no way he’s going to beat out McElroy, let alone Geno Smith. As a previous poster stated, that sissy looking headband he wears must be cutting off the circulation to what little brain he has. I know it won’t happen, but I pray the Jets cut him before the season even starts.

  11. This is why I can’t believe they’re keeping Sanchez. Sure, they’ll get killed by the salary cap hit if they cut him loose, but having him around contributing to the circus and possibly even beating out the newest QB of the future is going to be a disaster.

  12. So according to Sanchez’s logic, the Jets completely wasted their 2nd round pick.

    Sanchez is going to have a breakout season. They are going win 12 games this year.

  14. The only reason he’ll start is because the Jets are not going to pay him all that money to carry a clip board. When is something going to stick to Rex Ryan? This isn’t funny anymore.

  15. I hear he has worn a headband. Let’s make silly jokes about that and pretend that we’re football fans.

  16. if smith cant beat sanchez out by the end of training camp he might as well file his retirement papers and start looking at the fast food industry because if you can’t jump ahead of sanchez on a depth chart you arent beating anyone on a depth chart ever.

  17. Hey Mark Sanchez, wake up and smell the coffee because your time as the Jets QB is over. You’re done, Kaput, finished, finito. Get it? Adios Sanchez. You suck. The biggest BUST in NY Jets history.

  18. Look on the bright side Sanchez. If you had been successful all the fans of the other 31 teams would be screaming about you being a rapist.

  19. Apparently, his coach’s unfounded optimism has rubbed off on him. They’ve won a couple of Super Bowls together, right?

    ————————————-
    While I’m all for stats that make Sanchez look bad – Total QBR?? Really? Shouldn’t you be posting on ESPN??

    Trent Dilfer – is that you??

  21. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Boy he better hope for his sake that he isn’t wrong because he will look like the biggest jackass in the NFL! ( I mean more than he is already and that’s gonna be hard to do!) I love when I read something on the computer and i’m just sitting he cracking up! Family must think i’m nuts! But it’s Sanchez who is nuts!

  22. I am not a jets fan, but I am rooting for Mark,Sanchez…I think he will do good this year because its all or bust and to be quite honest, they will go 2-14 with Gino Smith. why the Jets drafted this dilweed is beyond me. They must have an idiot for a GM.

  23. Took all of 5 mins for the ever creative “butt fumble” mention. I guess that’s the best you can do.
    As far as Smith learning from Sanchez, the kid does have 4 road playoff victories. That’s the same number PEYTON MANNING has.
    Its not as bad as the trolls would have you believe.

  24. Vegaskid- Smith was the Jets 3rd pick in the draft. Its not mandatory that he start in week 1 to make it a good pick. He’ll play another 15 tears so relax.

  25. Let me preface this comment/rant with MARK SANCHEZ STILL DOESN’T GET IT

    It is this type of mentality that has led Sanchez down the path of poor play and at his very best mediocrity. I can’t believe that he would come out and say something this dumb…He was benched last year, yet he doesn’t think that Smith can come in and take his spot? Are you kidding me? Who does he think he is? You don’t throw 18 picks to 13 touchdowns and expect to start next season.

    Lastly, (this is off topic) Sanchez has always had to come out and call himself a leader, when in reality the man leading the ship is Rex Ryan. If you are a true leader, you shouldn’t have to call yourself one constantly. Sanchez’ immaturity and from what I saw on Hardknocks lack of work ethic leads me to believe that he doesn’t get it, will never get it, and will end up as a bust.

  26. Is this guy for real? The only reason Tebow didn’t take over is because they are trying to ruin his career, he’s being blackballed – but does sanchez not realize he sucks? Seriously?

  27. The Jests would be smart to just cut Sanchez now. In an honest competition he would beat out Geno Smith hands down, which would make their GM look like an incompetent boob. And nobody wants that.

  28. You can never count a man out until he is truly out.

    Drew Brees was an average QB with the Chargers hence the reason why they had the number one overall pick and picked Eli Manning, who later got traded for Phillip Rivers.

    Rivers comes in and Brees stepped his game up, so much so that Rivers who analyst were saying was the most Pro ready QB during the draft sat on the bench for 3 years.

    Now I don’t know if Sanchez has that in him, but there is always an exception to the rule and Sanchez might be it.

    Yea but you forget that it was the Jets defense that carried that team to four road playoff victories…they were ranked in the top 5 the first two years he was there and then the top 10 the third.

    Rivers was on the bench for 2 years, the first of which was partly due to his rookie holdout costing him time in the offense, but I agree with the rest. One thing I will say is that Brees/Rivers had a lot better skill players and a pretty good defense behind them back then. Sanchez has had the good D most of the time, but right now he has nothing proven at the skill players to help him. And I don’t think he’s as talented as Rivers and Brees to begin with so he has a big mountain to climb. In my opinion they should let Geno sit a year at least. Throwing a rookie QB into a team in transition can mess them up. It’s too bad for them Garrard had to retire because he would have been the perfect mentor for Geno and he probably would have been a decent enough starter to tide them over.
