Draft Scout Geno Smith News
11/25/13 - QB Geno Smith managed to make a bit of history Sunday that wasn't entirely negative when he caught a 13-yard pass from Josh Cribbs in the first quarter of the Jets' 19-3 loss to the Ravens. Smith's reception was the first by a Jets quarterback since 1991, when Ken O'Brien was on the receiving end of a 27-yard catch from Al Toon. Alas, the rest of the day didn't go nearly as well for Smith, who finished 9-of-22 for 127 yards and two interceptions in a third straight disastrous performance.
11/04/13 - QB Geno Smith set or tied a number of career-lows in serving as a game manager in the Jets' 26-20 win over the Saints on Sunday. Smith was just 8-for-19 passing for 115 yards -- career-low figures in all three categories -- but also didn't turn the ball over for just the second time this year and absorbed just two sacks, the second-fewest sacks he has taken in a start. Smith is the first Jets rookie quarterback to win five of his first nine starts. The Jets were 4-5 under Mark Sanchez in 2009.
10/10/13 - QB Geno Smith was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week on Wednesday. Smith earned the honors after authoring the finest game of his brief career on Monday night, when he was 16-of-20 for 199 yards and three touchdowns and directed a 55-yard drive in the final 1:54 that ended with Nick Folk kicking the game-winning field goal as time expired to give the Jets a 30-28 victory over the Falcons. Smith, who was the first rookie quarterback to win on the road on Monday Night Football in a non-strike season, finished with a passer rating of 147.7. A perfect passer rating is 158.3.
09/13/13 - As expected, the Patriots largely forced Geno Smith to operate from the pocket -- he had just three carries for 17 yards and was sacked four times -- and made him look like an inexperienced rookie. Smith (15 of 35 for 214 yards) was done no favors by a second half downpour, a butterfingered receiver corps that had six drops and Marty Mornhinweg's inexplicably pass-heavy game plan, but his three fourth quarter interceptions doomed the Jets' upset hopes
09/09/13 - Geno Smith will have an opportunity to follow up his solid regular-season debut, with New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan announcing Monday that the rookie will start at quarterback Thursday night at the New England Patriots.
Smith completed 24 of 38 passes for 256 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 18-17 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was also the Jets' leading rusher with 47 yards on six carries.
There was little doubt he would get the start against the Patriots with Mark Sanchez set to see Dr. James Andrews this week to be evaluated for a partially torn labrum in his right shoulder. Sanchez also reportedly suffered a dislocated shoulder when he was injured during the preseason.
