Geno-Smith-nfl-jets-dolphins

Geno Smith has been terrible.

There’s not much of a desire to delve further into how bad he is for the 100th time this week (8 TD, 19 INT, and in general playing worse than any season of Mark Sanchez is enough said); so instead I’m going to see if this can all end positively – in a high Jets draft pick!

Here are a bunch of facts and ideas to help you decide which way this will end: Continue reading
