The unnamed player is basically saying that for the past 4 years it was 100% Buttfumble's job. Now, the team feels like someone else, Geno, should be given the real opportunity to start. I completely agree. Nothing replaces game experience. Start Geno in game 1.
Who cares what Namath says anymore? The guy is a retired NFL QB who last played in the 70's. His brand of NFL football has radically evolved and he is just a fan like us now. Give Geno a break...we have seen the atrocities that Buttfumble has committed, especially the last two years, Geno has not had a chance yet to play an actual game, whether pre-season or regular season. Let it play out. Idzik is a smart guy, he let the draft come to him and STILL landed Geno in the second round. Let's not pay much attention to the nay-sayers in regards to Geno. We need hope and these bashing new player posts do nothing more than create vitriol in an already angry fanbase.
Namath, shut the hell up and go "KISH" some other sideline reporter....
Let's forget the injury issue. We had Landry as a Safety with an extensive injury history....he lasted the WHOLE year and he played a physical position. Using injury as a reason not to accept Garrard as a better QB is bunk...pure bunk. It should be Garrard/Geno as the starter and the loser of those two will be the backup. At that point, the CHEZ should be cut/traded/waived. Paying your third string that much money is crazy.
The media is looking to rebuild the circus in Jetland after TEBLOW's departure. How to do that? Stoke the "anonymous" source flames as to how bad, stuck up, stupid, lazy, lucky, Geno Smith is. Bascially get the guy to blow up to give you a story. GENO---------------> let your play on the field be the reply to these muckrakers..
Cimini is a tool. Everyone knows the guy is a hack. While we appreciate non-homerism this guy writes like he is a Pats fan. Tries to uncover things that aren't even there. Next thing you'll see is, Geno Smith is not even a QB by Rich Cimini or Geno Smith was born on Uranus by Rich Cimini.
Complete Hack...ESPN does Jets fans no favor by employing this idiot.
Bottom line, The CHEZ must go. We can't allow the location of a game define who will be the QB. At the end of the year, the Jets were deciding who was going to be QB by who will NOT be booed by the home fans. If you think Jets fans will forget the horrible QB play from last year, then I have a bridge to sell you. The Chez is done in NYC. The best options for the team are to have Geno Garrard and McElroy be the top 3 qbs. Cut Chez and let him see if he can be a back up somewhere else. His time in NYC is done.
Up the Middle Pressure will make the classic pocket passers nervous...and that creates turnovers and three and outs. The combination of getting richardson and Wilkerson up the middle and Coples on the outside...in a 4-3, they are going to create matchup issues. Add in Milliner and Cro on the outside...that only leaves the slot and tight end as your safety valves. Rex will scheme to this.
I am not too worried about the defense, I think they will be fun to watch this year. I am worried about the Offense. I know that they will be better this year BUT they were PUTRID last year, so an improvement over Putrid is not that exciting. I think if they start Geno, its gives us something to look forward to. If they start Sanchez then this season will be a big snoozefest.
Agreed. I like Rex but the guy thinks its only about the defense. If you don't score points on Offense you will lose consistently. We need a new QB, new WR, new RB, new TE. The current O will be scoring maybe 3-10 pts a game. That means we win 1-4 games. This season will not get any better unless we start assembling better O SKILL players.
