Rex mum on QB choice
SANCHEZ vs. SMITH: WHO'S WINNING?
Tuesday's advantage: Sanchez
Mark Sanchez's day: He was 4-for-6 with the starters, fitting the ball into tight windows. He was sharp.
Geno Smith's day: He threw his first interception of team drills. Finished 2-for-5. Two spotty day in a row.
Quote: "It's been an even competition." -- Rex Ryan
Monday was a spotty day for Smith, who threw two interceptions in 7-on-7 drills, both in the red zone. If you're keeping score at home, he has a total of three interceptions in 7-on-7s, none in team drills.
"Down in the red zone, I think I need to do a better job at taking care of the ball," Smith said.
Ryan cut the kid some slack.
"It's not like he's going to be like Nolan Ryan and pitch a shutout out there," he said. "As long as we learn from it then it can almost be a positive, but if you don’t learn from it obviously it’s a huge negative."
