In all fairness, Geno Smith played QB for the Jets. It's a burial ground for QB's, certainly not a franchise were young QB's are groomed for a long career. While he hasn't been stellar, he's not been as bad as some make him out to be. With that said, I hardly expect his NYG tenure to be any different. That's a shit storm of a different kind over there.

True, but remember the only reason anybody here ever talks about Smith is because a certain member refuses to admit that perhaps we shouldn't have mortgaged the franchise to get him. laugh.gif

I'm making a bold prediction - he beats the 'pukes next week.

There's bold predictions, and then there's trolling. You can't be serious.

I'm not sure we can even grasp how this might be affecting the locker room. IMO this is one of the worst personnel decisions I've ever seen. It would be one thing if Eli was completely stinking up the joint and McAdoo wanted to plug in Webb to see what he can do. But Eli is having a pretty decent year stat wise, considering the shit sandwich he was dealt - and they're ending his streak to put in Geno fucking Smith?!?!?

I expect nothing less than a complete and utter collapse through the end of the year, and I'd be shocked if McAdoo even made it that far. And we'll all have fun watching it.

28 TD vs 36 INT

Sorry, that's bad...REALLY bad. No matter who you played for.

Believe me, I take it seriously. It's a division game, and we're not playing good football right now. We improved a little last night, but we mainly beat a team who was playing even worse. There's something awful shaky about our performances at the moment, even when we are winning. And it being a must win game doesn't mean so much when they're all must win games from this point on.

The numbers don't stand alone. There are many factors that will help to inflate or deflate stats.

Uh, yes, they do stand alone when they are that bad. No excuse for numbers that bad.

Well I guess the numbers and whatever other metric you want to use showed him to be a long shot with any team looking for a QB because he could only get work as a backup. You can argue that he was good enough for that. He has shown some flashes of quality play but he has a longer list of mediocrity or poor play.

Who knows, maybe the light goes on at some point.
