08:06 AM ET 03.23 | If Rex Ryan has a feeling on who he wants to be his starting quarterback this fall, he's not giving any clues. Asked on ESPN Radio yesterday if he has a gut feeling about who the starter will be, Ryan said, "No, I don't." The Jets have Mark Sanchez, David Garrard, Greg McElroy, Tim Tebow and Matt Simms at quarterback on their current roster. Tebow is expected to be released, though Ryan would not touch that topic during the interview. Ryan said he expects an open competition for the starting job. "I think it's going to be a position, obviously, that we're bringing in competition," Ryan said. "I don't think there's a clear-cut favorite, in my opinion," Ryan said. "I just think it's going to be competition from day one. Sanchez will take the first snap, but that's all you can say. It is going to be an open competition."

Of course there's no favorite. They all suck.

Exactly. There's no clear cut favorite because they don't even HAVE a clear cut QB.

Sorta like the Jon Gruden school of coaching. Get enough mediocre QBs and one of then has to not stink some of the time.

Isn't his "gut feeling" usually "let's get a g-damn snack"?

I thought that was the working title of a "movie" Rex was helping to fund.

No quality QB would touch Twinkle Toes and his circus side show.

That has certainly been the case so far.

Let's summarize for the slower students.After a full preseason and season with these guys, Ryan still has no clue.

Dole - in case you're interested...

Raiders - Patriots from January 2002 is on NFLN.

In honor of the repeal of the tuck rule, no doubt.

No need to waste, Rex will start the player that's tattooed on his wife's arm.

Even Alex Smith was smart enough to stay away from the Jets.
