Is year 5 too late for New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez to resurrect his career? Dalbin Osorio explores…
Due to the previous Collective Bargaining Agreement, first round quarterbacks were taken to ideally be the franchise quarterback for an extended period of time. If you connected with your pick, you have Peyton Manning or Donovan McNabb and can compete for a decade plus despite glaring weaknesses at other position groups. If you miss, you end up with Ryan Leaf and your franchise is set back for years. Sometimes, you end up right in the middle. You don’t get a savior (Jason Campbell) but you don’t get a bust either (Sam Bradford). Sometimes, you get a guy that leads your team to moderate success before flaming out amid allegations of blackballing and conspiracies (Vince Young) or a guy that goes on and gives you glimpses of why they were a first round QB on another team (Jay Cutler). Is improvement in the 5th year for a QB too much to ask for a former 5th overall pick? Let’s look at how other first round QBs drafted from 2001-2008 have done in year 5 and see if there’s any reason to hope for “Moscato” Mark Sanchez.

The New York Jets have came up with a new procedure for the J-E-T-S chant. Oh no…
The in-stadium experience at New York Jets games has never been ideal. Whether it was the goofy “Game-Ball” attempting to lead cheers on the video board a few years back or the occasional saturation of away fans (remember Jets vs. Pittsburgh in 2007?), I wouldn’t call the Jets home-field advantage one of the league’s best. It wasn’t easy to play in “Giants Stadium” with red seats and an overall vibe that was catered to the other team to town.
There was a brief positive respite in 2009 and 2010, the final year in the old stadium and the first year in the new stadium. The best Jets crowd I’ve experienced in my life was a week 2 victory over the New England Patriots in 2009. It was a rare occasion where the crowd seemingly took over the game. The building shook. Tom Brady and the New England offense was forced into multiple false starts and delay of game penalties. The sirens rang every time Rex Ryan’s defense took the field. There was a unique level of energy that day. This positive environment generally carried over the rest of the season and into 2010, not surprisingly mirroring the success of the team.

Connor Rogers continues his look at the New York Jets training camp battles by focusing on the quarterback position
Our series of taking a deeper look at the battles going on at New York Jets training camp continues by focusing on the quarterback spot. Quarterback is certainly a position that never lacks drama with the Jets and this year it seems to be at an all time high. The former 5th overall pick from the 2009 draft Mark Sanchez is competing against this year’s second round pick Geno Smith to be the starter. Meanwhile, Greg McElroy and Matt Simms compete for the 3rd string spot. Both won’t be solved until preseason, but let’s see how things are projected and also how each look after few days of practice.

The Turn On The Jets film room breaks down the tape on New York Jets wide receivers Braylon Edwards and Clyde Gates
Turn On The Jets is back in the film room today to break down the tape on New York Jets wide receivers Braylon Edwards and Clyde Gates. Recently acquired (for the third time since 2009), Edwards has a good chance to walk into major reps because of how thin the team’s depth chart is. Gates was a role player last season who is off to a strong start in training camp, leading to some thinking he can be a major factor in 2013. For this article we went through their 2012 offensive reps, let’s see what we found…

TJ Rosenthal examining the ramifications of Mark Sanchez potentially starting the season out as the New York Jets backup QB
It may not be the worst thing in the world for Mark Sanchez, if Geno Smith ends up getting the starting job in week one. The Jets coaching staff and fan base already have a short rope waiting for Sanchez anyway. If Smith falters or goes down, Sanchez could re-enter under different circumstances. Needing only to perform in more meat and potatoes second string fashion. If Smith succeeds, the Sanchize, could enjoy a season with no hits to the body, while collecting a healthy paycheck for it. Before going on his way to a similar role even further under the radar…as a backup most likely elsewhere, where even less will be expected of him.

Cole Patterson on the New York Jets consideration of using a read-option package for Geno Smith
On June 12, 2013 Jets fans accross the globe experienced a sudden bout of simultaneous déjà vu. Rex Ryan, a podium, and a conversation about a special package for an athletic quarterback. Tim Tebow is long gone but has new-kid-on-the-block, Geno Smith, has taken his place as a possible read-option/wildcat quarterback?
Ryan, during a mini camp press conference, was asked by a media member how Smith’s mobility would impact the offense. As a follow up question Ryan was asked wether the Jets would use Smith to run specialized plays as a back up. He began by reassuringly stating that he understood the obvious comparisons to the failed “Tebow Package” of 2012. However, Ryan proceded to cause mass hysteria when he said, “I certainly think that’s a possibility” in regards to a “Smith Package”.
