11:59 AM ET 07.15 | The New York Jets appear ready to roll with veteran Mark Sanchez at quarterback for the 2013-14 NFL season, but we still may see rookie Geno Smith taking the field this year with a limited role in the team's offense. According to recent reports, the team is "toying with the idea" of using the former West Virginia star as a change-of-pace quarterback in certain packages. The Jets have tried this before and it has been a total failure. For Smith, it may not be the best idea to become a package player, but he will have no choice other than to accept what the Jets ask of him.

Limited roll? What, he's going to be a decoy in punt formation besides a couple wildcat formations? See how we'll that work last year.

At what point does Geno Smith just demand a trade to get himself out of this mess they call NYJ??

I was thinking the same thing. Seems there was this guy last year named Tim that . . .

Seems like the Jets don't know what to do with a QB who is NOT called Sanchez.

If they use him the same way they used Tebow as a change of pace QB, this kid better get his agent looking for him a new time right now.

Rex: We're going to use you as a change of pace QB, Timmy...

Later...

Rex: Ok, Timmy, it's 3rd down and 37. You're at your own 2. Run this Sanchez play and see if you can do something with it.

It would be a change of pace if he were the "competent" one.

Did t the Jets say the same thing to Tebow?

Yep... The pace will go from a crawl to a HAULT!
