    I would be content enough if Geno would simply stop continually making pants-on-head stupid mistakes.

    Maybe we've become to accustomed to this sort of poor decision making after all the years with Sanchez. Geno may be a better physical talent than Sanchez, but he's not instilling any more confidence or providing any better results.

    One year. One year when we had Burress. That was it.

    MM has adapted his offense for Geno. That's what a good OC does. His WCO is malleable and has been altered to the stengths of many QBs including but not limited to: Michael Vick, Donovan McNabb, Steve Young, Jeff Garcia, Brett Favre, Kevin Kolb…etc.

    All I know is it felt like divine intervention every time Sanchez was able to successfully complete a check down.

    Geno can actually move the ball through the air. And with hardly anyone capable of catching a football.

    I believe Geno has a far greater capacity to improve than Sanchez did.

    totally agree . . . something tells me if Sanchez were here, Marty wouldn't be calling many screens.

    Does he have any versions of the WCO where the QB doesn't throw any passes? Because I'm pretty sure that's the only way to play to Geno's strengths.

    I agree that this loss was mostly on him. The stats were the definition of Geno's performance tonight. He made some plays and he even looked good at times. But he also made some boneheaded mistakes and bad decisions. This loss sucks, but I can tolerate it because he didn't completely implode and he made plays. Geno has shown marked improvement over last year, and he wasn't going to go from where he was last year to a seasoned vet. That's unrealistic I expect growing pains just as long as he's showing progress.

    Chip Kelly did with Sanchez in the preseason. Maybe it's a Jets uniform thing.

    If Mark Sanchez didn't get hurt and was able to play in Marty's offense, IMHO he resurrects his career and he's QBing the New York Jets, still..

    I guess your right cause Geno wasn't throwing INTs left and right in the preseason and now he's tied for the league lead.

    They fail(ed) for different reasons. Sanchez had been living on pure talent at USC. So when he came
    to the Jets he found he couldn't live off talent and lost interest. Giving him that extension was a huge
    mistake. Geno played in a shotgun spread offense and was asked to learn the West Coast Offense WHILE
    playing. That's like dropping a toddler in the pool and asking them to swim. And Geno is beginning
    to lose confidence in himself (which anybody would under the pressure of New York and a hungry fan base.)

    It's been three games. Let's see where he is at the end of his second season. Sanchez was close to leading the league in interceptions (he may have been for all I know) when he was finally (and thankfully) benched during his fourth season. Again, for a whole host of reasons, the Sanchez/Geno comparison is premature to say the least.

    possibly . . . but I'm not sure that there is any tangible reason to believe that whatsoever.

    Losing Decker hurt for this game, I feel it's time to shut him down for 2-3 weeks unfortunately.

    But this creates a bind here...

    It seems once Decker went down, they only went to these 3 WR's, Kerley, Nelson and Salas.

    Kerley is so much better on underneath and option routes, one of the best at this. Nelson isn't much a threat on the outside at all. Salas isn't polished enough. Saunders barely got onto the field and when he did, he was lined up WAY wide along with Hakim (I mean these two don't even play WR, they are essentially returners).

    Then once Amaro dropped that easy pass that hit his hands, he sat for like a whole quarter! Cumberland, I mean I just don't see much with him.

    Amaro needs to come along QUICKLY or this will be a long year for Geno...the cupboard is still bare.

    I see a lot of agenda posting tonight. Lol at one bad game meaning it's time to bench Geno. He made some bad decisions but he did some positive things as well. He's going to have games like this but he's shown improvement. If Geno implodes then I'll be all for benching him.

    The other guy didn't play with confidence or inspire confidence in those around him. Smith, at least, plays with confidence; whether he can also inspire it is yet to be seen.

    My question is are we better off without him? Maybe. Will we have a better chance with somebody else?
