Draft Scout Geno Smith News
09/14/14 - QB Geno Smith had a big game against Oakland, with 23-of-28 accuracy, but that was against the woeful Raiders. How would he do against a solid pass defense like that of Green Bay's? The early results were encouraging. He completed 10-of-14 passes for 103 yards, including a beautiful 29-yard touchdown to WR Eric Decker against Packers CB Sam Shields, in the first half. The second half, however, was a different story. As Green Bay rallied and the pass rush intensified, Smith struggled. He went 6-of-18 for 73 yards and an interception in the second half. "We hate to lose, especially in this fashion, when we're up a bunch of points and we have a chance to put our foot on their throat. I always put things on me," Smith said.
09/07/14 - QB Geno Smith overcame a pair of potentially costly mistakes to put together a solid stat line in the Jets' 19-14 win over the Raiders. Smith, who threw an interception in the first quarter that led to a Raiders touchdown, also lost a fumble inside the Raiders' 5-yard-line in the second quarter. He was 23-for-28 for 221 yards and one touchdown. He also rushed 10 times for 38 yards in improving to 9-8 as an NFL starter.
12/11/13 - QB Geno Smith has struggled through the air this year but is flirting with history with his feet. Smith rushed for his fourth touchdown of the season Sunday in the Jets' 37-27 win over the Raiders, which are the most by a rookie quarterback in Jets history and the second-most for any rookie, regardless of position. He also had a 32-yard gain Sunday, the third-longest scramble by a Jets quarterback, Al Dorow had a 40-yard rush in 1961 and Joe Namath had a 39-yard run in 1966. Smith leads the Jets in rushing scores while ranking third in both yards (230) and attempts (46).
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.
