The Seattle Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers 23-17 to advance to Super Bowl 48 on a last-minute interception tip by Richard Sherman that fell into the hands of fellow defender Malcolm Smith.

It was a heck of a play, but what happened next will probably be what everyone is talking about tomorrow. Continue reading

Geno Smith Will Have To Prove He Is The Jets Franchise Quarterback Sooner Rather Than Later

geno-smith-fumble-titans-jets

Sam Bradford, Tim Tebow, Jimmy Clausen, Colt McCoy, Michael Kafka, John Skelton, Jonathan Crompton, Rusty Smith, Dan LeFevour, Joe Webb, Tony Pike, Levi Brown, Sean Canfield, Zac Robinson.

Teddy Bridgewater, Marcus Mariota, Brett Hundley, Tajh Boyd, Johnny Manziel, A.J. McCarron, Stephen Morris, Aaron Murray, David Fales, Derek Carr, Braxton Miller.

The first list is every Quarterback taken in the 2010 NFL Draft.  The second list is every Quarterback listed in projections to go in just the first two rounds of the 2014 Draft.

Looking at those names alone, it is clear why Geno Smith’s time to show he is the Jets franchise QB may be running out. Continue reading

The Sanchize Crashes and Burns – The End of Defending Sanchez

And Possible Future Replacements

sancheztitans
The time to defend Mark Sanchez is over.

There are no more reasons.  There are no more excuses.  There are no more stats.  There are no more playoff victories to look at.

Lack of talent around him no longer matters.

No, Sanchez was tasked with one thing to do: Protect the ball long enough to beat three more bad teams and make the playoffs.  He could not do that.

A Dangerous Precedent: The Niners and Benching Alex Smith

49ers QB Alex Smith was carrying the 3rd best Quarterback Rating in the NFL going into their game with the St. Louis Rams on November 11.  In that game, he was concussed from a hit that resulted in Smith missing the remainder of the game and the following matchup with one of the league’s top defenses, the Chicago Bears, on Monday Night Football.

In his stead came Colin Kaepernick, the potential-laden 2nd year player from Nevada.  Blessed with a rocket for an arm and the ability to run anywhere on the field, many in San Francisco were excited to see him play.

After throwing for 117 yards passing and rushing for 66 with a touchdown, Kaepernick followed that up with a shockingly strong 243 yards and 2 TD performance vs. the Bears.  Following the game, it became obvious during coach Jim Harbaugh’s press conference that the “hot hand” was going to remain the starter.

How Can The Jets Win Now?


In consecutive weeks, the Jets have lost their two biggest playmakers: Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes.

While the NFL has proven that you can rally from a star player becoming injured, a second star going down on such a flawed team leads most to believe that this will not be happening for the Jets.

If we can all agree that the Jets will not be winning the Super Bowl this year, the best course of action for the Jets is to lose out and get as best of a draft pick as possible in the 2013 draft (hopefully with someone other than Tannenbaum making that pick).  With that said, if the Jets are going to win more games this year, here are some Tebow-less ways they will have to adjust to make it possible.
