Kellen Clemens vs. Mark Sanchez. Through 11 OTA practices, Clemens is clearly ahead of the Golden Boy. Sanchez looked lost at the beginning, but he came on last week, demonstrating a better grasp of the offense. No one is going to win or lose the starting job in this minicamp, but Sanchez can close the gap with a strong performance. It's hard to get an accurate read on the quarterbacks in a controlled environment; the real evaluation will start in the pre-season games. The organization wants Sanchez to win the job, but Ryan is in a win-now mode and he's not going to throw away 2009 and put Sanchez on the field if he's not ready. The interesting question is this: Will O.C. Brian Schottenheimer scale back his offense to make it Sanchez-friendly? Believe me, some players are wondering that.
