The New York Jets' quarterback situation is a mess. They are stuck with incumbent Mark Sanchez and his guaranteed $8.25 million salary this year and don’t have any easy answers.

Earlier Friday the AFC East blog examined the quarterbacks in the AFC East. Now it’s your turn to weigh in on New York.

Who should be the Jets' starting quarterback in 2013? There are several potential options.

Should it be Sanchez? He’s started for the Jets since 2009. Sanchez hasn't lived up to his potential as a former first-round pick. But the Jets are paying him a lot of money this season and may not be able to afford to have more than $8 million sitting on the bench. Is Sanchez the answer for one more year?

What about Matt Flynn? First-year Jets general manager John Idzik has ties to the Seattle Seahawks and could be willing to trade for their backup. Flynn was signed in free agency in 2012 but was beat out by rookie quarterback Russell Wilson. Flynn would have a chance to compete in New York.

Matt Cassel also is an option. The soon-to-be former Kansas City Chief is expected to be released after this week’s agreement to trade for Alex Smith of the San Francisco 49ers. Cassel has plenty of starting experience with Kansas City and the New England Patriots. Should the Jets consider Cassel when he’s released?

There are also options like Brady Quinn, who also played for the Chiefs, and Tim Tebow. The Jets still have Tebow on the roster and want to trade the former first-round pick.
