The way rookie salaries are structured now, I think you should take a QB every year until you have the position locked down. I'll be disappointed if they don't add one in the draft this year. No knock on Smith -- it's up to him to force the organization to stop looking at QBs.

I agree, Simms should be involved in the QB competition, as coming in cold when the game was mop up duty and already over for the Jets with no starting game plan or players last season was not a fair evaluation. In pre season when things were on a more even playing field, he did very well. I am not saying he will be an NFL starter, just that he should be given a fair shot before dismissing him.     http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1947234-why-matt-simms-deserves-a-fair-shot-at-the-new-york-jets-starting-qb-spot

Cimini being Cimini "Idzik is all about competition, especially at quarterback."

I have a better one, "if the fact don't bear out your comment, go ahead and say it anyway"

The fact is if Idzik was all about competition especially at 

QB he would not have asked Garrard to return for the 2014 season since the Jets have already determined they can't play him. Does Cimini really cover the Jets or just read their press releases?

Absolutely not. Not now, not ever will he be starting qb of this team. Period.

@frustjetfn  Garrard's role isn't starting QB. It's being a veteran mentor, and he's better at it than everyone else on the roster. Just like how Tanner Purdum gets to stay on the team even though he's much worse than the other guy who snaps the ball.

@Brendan  hopefully the local team doesn't swoop in. Ravens could use him too

Possible, but lets see what he can do under a more level playing field. That is competition and doing your due diligence as a team, no?  You could be right, but you could be wrong and competition is the only way to decide.

@MarshRandy Bernard Pierce is his mentor, so that's a very real possibility.

I am very kind and gentle but if you act like a jerk towards me, I will give you the same and worse.

I adopted a slightly different version of the Golden Rule....Do unto others as they do unto you.

I guess that I am mellowing and getting a little softer, but I still battle for my opinions and points like a pit bull, I just do it now in a kinder and gentler way, lol

Competition in some cases like this is pure bs. He'll probably end up being 3rd string if we bring in a vet.
