You guys brought him up not me.
I'm not sure if the Jets would have won that game with Sanchez but Geno was really bad last night. I think Mark would have probably had the same number of bonehead picks, but would have probably hit a couple more of those bad throws. In particular, that play where Clyde Gates was WIDE open deep and Geno underthrew him, or the one where Kellen Winslow had an easy touchdown if he didn't have to lunge backwards to catch a ball, I think Sanchez probably hits one of those and the Jets win.
I am really enjoying Gang Green this morning. They are talking about how Geno is already better than Mark Sanchez, which is hilarious. Even junc is making sense in that thread.
"Geno is gonna take ten days to look at film, then come out against the Bills and suddenly stop throwing wobbly passes, making bad decisions, and handle pressure better!"
^ This is what Jets fans actually believe!
Now I am become coach, the destroyer of teams.
I saw some good things from Smith but there was a lot of bad. He definitely has confidence and he threw some nice passes but he threw some ugly ones as well. 3 ints in the 4th qtr is inexcusable but quite honestly, he shouldn't have thrown 3 passes. Run game was working but MM kept going away from it. He called a bad game and set Smith up for failure.
Smith made rookie mistakes in his 2nd game on a Thursday night at Tom Brady's house in bad conditions. He obviously has accuracy issues and holds the ball beyond to long, but he also has no feel for pressure. That is a major red flag for me.
Move on to the next game and see how he fares against the Bills. This is a season for them to determine if he's the future.
I didn't get the play calling last night, it was pouring raining and the jets refused to stick with the running game. The patsies had no answer for Powell and ivory yet the jets threw it 34 times.
