Geno Smith may be the Jets starting quarterback against Darrelle Revis and the Bucs but there is no guarantee he’ll be starting anything beyond that. The Jets unleashed their triple threat Wednesday -- Rex Ryan GM John Idzik and owner Woody Johnson -- and from every angle they made it clear that the competition is continuing into the regular season.

“We’ll always put the best player we can on the field on Sunday and that will continue” Johnson said. “The competition’s ongoing.”

“Competition is our mantra” Idzik said. “It’s really a mindset with us. “Competition will always be ongoing no matter where you are on the roster.”

Ryan was asked if the starting quarterback position was going to evaluated on a week-to-week basis.

“Our focus is strictly on this game” Ryan said. “So whether week-to-week I don’t know what the heck we’re not thinking past Tampa. This whole team is not thinking past Tampa in anything.”

So the quarterback competition which was essentially unsettled in the preseason since Mark Sanchez was hurt will last for a further indefinite period of time. It also appears that Sanchez isn’t going anywhere. Because the team brought in Brady Quinn speculation mounted that Sanchez’s injury was more serious than the team had indicated with it’s “day-to-day” phrase. However both Idzik and Johnson indicated that Sanchez being cut or placed on IR weren’t possibilities.
