The Jets’ plan is simple: Start the rookie if he’s healthy.
The "fair and open" competition has been a charade from Day One, complete with organizational shenanigans (including changing the rules along the way) designed to help Smith.
However, the team needlessly and unconvincingly put on a four-month show that led us to think Sanchez had just as much of a chance as Smith to be the Week 1 starter.
