Ainge Feels He’s Got a Shot to be the Starting QB in 2009


With Brett Favre gone, the QB spot is wide open, and Erik Ainge thinks he’s got a legit shot to be the starter in 2009. Here’s a report from the New York Post on Ainge and his possible starting opportunity in 2009:

Erik Ainge told newyorkjets.com that he feels like he’ll have a legitimate chance to compete for the Jets’ starting quarterback job under new coach Rex Ryan. “I don’t think there will be any politics involved,” the second-year player from Tennessee said. “I don’t want to get into an I-do-this-better-he-does-that-better kind of deal,” Ainge said. “I’m just taking advantage of every opportunity I get. We can all make all the throws — comeback, deep ball, in-cut, slant. It’s the little things that are going to determine who’s going to end up at quarterback — attention to detail, listening to all the new coaches, taking advantage of every opportunity.
