A retread like Vick
That's why the Jets will wind up with a retread like Michael Vick once the Eagles discard him. Vick turns 33 before next season and is a flawed quarterback, but it's better than sticking with Sanchez.
Anybody but Sanchez
But what we can say for certain is their opening-day starting quarterback won't be Mark Sanchez. Changes are coming for the Jets, and one of those changes is going to be at quarterback. It is likely the Jets will have either a new general manager or head coach, or both, and the new man or men will want a new quarterback.
The Jets can't sell Sanchez to their fans anymore. So the Jets will be in the quarterback market this offseason. Whether by free agency, trade or the draft, they will find one.
Smith or perhaps Vick
The Jets' 2013 opening-day quarterback is not on the current roster, and maybe the guy who will make the decision isn't on board yet, either.
Rex Ryan's steadfast support of Mark Sanchez could be his undoing. Both careers have hit the iceberg.
