The team announced Tuesday that Geno Smith would replace the star quarterback.
Don't Stop Hoping. We are NY Jets fans after all. Next year Tom Brady will be a year older, our CAP space substantial and
'Twas a famous victory to quote poet Robert Southey (what can I do, defeating Brady and the hooded one brings out the poet in me). The New York Jets finally prevailed over divisional arch-rivals New England Patriots in a 26-20 OT thriller.
Geno Smith was not the sole or even the primary cause for the Jets' loss to the Raiders. But he is also not a franchise QB and certainly not the future for the Jets. There is now serious cause for concern about how the rest of the season will play out.
It's hard to believe this is the same team that lost ten games before their first win last season. The new and improved Raiders are now in contention in the AFC for the first time in twelve years.
New York's 3-1 start is its best in five years.
Geno Smith is not a leader. Period. It would have been simply inconceivable for a Peyton Manning or a Joe Namath or [enter here the name of any great QB] to be shown such disrespect and punched for an off the field reason by a teammate.
The Jets' QB got himself sucker punched by his own teammate!
While the gridiron may allegedly flow with milk and honey, the supply of Jets fans who thought Geno Smith was capable of leading them to glory were few and far between, even before a teammate felt the need to ruin his grill piece.
He's going to miss serious time, too.
