01:56 PM ET 08.20 | New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith missed the team's second preseason game of the year with a sprained ankle that he suffered in Week One against the Detroit Lions, but it looks like the team will be giving him one more chance to win the starting job by giving him the start for the team's third preseason game against the New York Giants. The third preseason game is generally when starters get the most playing time, so Smith will have a great opportunity to impress the coaching staff on the field. Veteran Mark Sanchez has done a solid job throughout the first two preseason games, but if Smith is able to put together an impressive performance against the Giants he will have a real shot at starting the season opener in a few weeks.

I don't think if this guy can drop the ball down the vent and destroy the Death Star, Sanchez will start as long as Rex is there.

If Sanchez had "done a solid job" in pre-season, then Smith would have no chance at starting the regular season. The fact is, FanSided, that Sanchez has not looked like a starting NFL quarterback, which leaves the job open if Smith can take it.

But yeah, Sanchez will still start, as long as Rex has that job and the tattoo.

The Jets can't even do preseason correct. PS Week 3, it's the time to cement the starting squad and let them gel together into the 3rd quarter. Then in your final week of practice before showtime you can work the remaining bugs out.
