This is just preseason, but both teams are desperate to iron out their quarterback problems. The Eagles are going with the always exciting and always erratic Michael Vick, and the injury to Mark Sanchez means the rookie Geno Smith has to step up fast. The Jets will also have to make a quick decision as to who will be the No. 3 QB. Jets fans can look forward to: the return of Santonio Holmes, their big play receiver, and the development of rookie Dee Milliner as shut-down cornerback. This is your best bet for being able to afford an NFL game. StubHub starts at $8—not bad, even for nosebleed—with lower sideline seats going for $135. Finally, heed the new bag policy: Not even purses allowed, only a 12-by-6-by-12 clear plastic bag and a clutch. They mean it.
