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

He was “excited”.  He was really “excited”.  Everyone was excited.

Governor Chris Christie ecstatically welcomed him to New Jersey.  The Daily News had the Statue of Liberty in his famous stance.  His legion of fans were ready to take New York by storm.

Tim Tebow, coming off a surprise season where he relieved Kyle Orton in Denver and led the Broncos to a playoff overtime victory, was now a Jet.  Woody Johnson and Mike Tannenbaum helped complete the trade – giving Denver a 4th and 6th round pick – and putting the Jets right back in the forefront with the second consecutive sports story to knock the standing Super Bowl Champion Giants off the covers.

Tebowmania was here.

So was the end of the Jets season.  We just didn’t know it yet.
