When is the last time the Jets and Giants ever made a trade, if ever? None that I can remember. It's certainly not going to start with the Jets best player.
Smith is the opposite. The kid is mentally tough and makes plays. He's extremely efficient as a passer and a good runner as well.
I'm not saying Smith is a great QB but he is a good QB. Sanchez is flat out terrible.
The Jets would be well served in acquiring Alex Smith.
What you are saying it seems is that it would be smart for the Jets to continue to act like the Jets, (actually care about superficial PR factors).
I'm saying it would be smart to trade the kid (if they want to trade him) to the team who can improve their team the most, especially if that team is in the other conference.
No no trades. Giants can do more with better scheming. Giants also need help in other ereas real bad. I rather them get the O-line fixed. If we can run out the clock in a lead, it can be like the defense keeping the opposition's offense off the field.
I am not claiming that this has been your stance but so many people make one point without the other.
As of right now, Colin Kapernick has taken San Francisco 49ers one game further than Alex Smith did last year. Now, I like Colin Kapernick and he is doing an awesome job but I think they would still be going to SuperBowl if Alex Smith were their starter.
Alex Smith is a damn good QB. Comparing him to Mark Sanchez is ridiculous.

Also, you're waaaaaay off base thinking that Reese misses early. Out of the 13 players he's drafted in the 1st and 2nd rounds only 3 you can haven't panned out, Ross (even though he played major roles in both SB titles, was still disappointing), Sintim, and Austin (the jury is still out, but the verdict isn't looking good).
2007) 1) Ross
2) Steve Smith
2008) 1) KP
2009: 1) Nicks
2011: 1) Prince
2012: 1) Wilson
