Draft Scout Geno Smith News
10/27/14 - QB Geno Smith has officially been benched. Head coach Rex Ryan announced Monday afternoon - a little more than 24 hours after Smith was yanked after throwing three interceptions in as many first quarter series of a 43-23 loss to the Buffalo Bills - that Michael Vick would start Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Smith has started the first 24 games of his NFL career, during which he has thrown 31 interceptions against just 19 touchdowns.
10/26/14 - QB Geno Smith was benched, perhaps for good, after throwing interceptions on three consecutive first quarter series Sunday in the Jets' 43-23 loss to the Bills. Smith finished 2-of-8 for five yards as he became the first quarterback since Rex Grossman in 2006 to have two completions and three interceptions in a single game. He was the first Jets quarterback to achieve that dubious feat since Ken O'Brien in YEAR HERE. It was the second mid-game benching of the season for Smith, who took a seat at halftime of a 31-0 loss to the San Diego Chargers on Oct. 5. After that game, head coach Rex Ryan declared Smith was still his starter, but Ryan didn't name a starter following Sunday's loss.
10/16/14 - QB Geno Smith was pretty much mistake-free Thursday night in the Jets' loss to the Patriots, and he came within a whisker of pulling off the upset. He finished 20 of 34 for 226 yards and a touchdown, and he didn't throw an interception for the first time this season. Smith left for one play in the fourth quarter with a leg injury before quickly returning and almost pulling out the win.
10/05/14 - QB Geno Smith will start next week against the Broncos despite another woeful performance Sunday. But he knows he can't duplicate many days like Sunday when he completed just 4 of 12 passes for 27 yards and a 7.6 passer rating. "What we did today was pathetic," Smith said. "This makes you look at yourself a little more and find a way to get better."
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.
