Mark Brunell Is the Backup

In today's non Revis news, Rex Ryan told the press today Mark Brunell is Mark Sanchez's primary backup.

Training camp is only a week old, but Rex Ryan has all but declared an end to the backup-quarterback competition. The New York Jets' coach said Tuesday that Mark Brunell, who basically signed on the eve of camp, is "pretty much a lock for the No. 2 spot."


 

This seemed like it was in the cards no matter what happened in preseason. I don't see what the harm would have been in opening things up to give a blank slate like Kevin O'Connell more of a shot.
