Even if Geno Smith is not as prepared to start right away as last year’s tremendous rookie trio of Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson, the Jets coach will lose credibility in the locker room you can’t fool the players by starting Sanchez in the opener if the fifth-year QB doesn’t finally find a way to stop giving the ball away. One thing has been drilled into Sanchez’s head about the 52 turnovers he committed over the last two years: Cut it out.
