The word out of OTA's from this morning is not promising at the quarterback position.
Practice wrapping up: Sanchez finishes 6-11, 3 INTs in 15 snaps. Geno Smith finishes 3-10, INT in 14 snaps. Both "sacked" once #nyj— Manish Mehta(@MMehtaNYDN) May 22, 2013
Is it panic time? Not exactly. Manish Mehta tries on his voice of reason hat.
QB stats are virtually meaningless. Two of the Jets top 3 WRs (Holmes and Hill) didn't participate in team drills. Plus, no tackling. #nyj— Manish Mehta(@MMehtaNYDN) May 22, 2013
One practice does not mean much. The quarterback situation looks dicey considering the top two on the depth chart are a rookie and Mark Sanchez, but we already knew that. If either guy came out and lit things up, it would not mean a ton either.
Bart Hubbuch offers the following comment from Geno.
Geno Smith says the routes in Mornhinweg’s Jets offense are very similar to West Virginia’s, but the terminology is totally different.— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) May 22, 2013
It is a process, but these OTA's, training camp, and the preseason are here to help him get used to things.
