    Unbelievable: The Jets draft Geno Smith.

    Last year, Tim Tebow was brought in and the Sanchize had coniptions. I can only imagine that, as I type this, Sancheze is on the phone to his agent screaming, crying, and turning into a quivering mass of raw nerve endings.

    Not content with the soap opera in the locker room last year, Rex Ryan has cranked the media tweaking knob all the way to 11.

    Tomorrow is gonna be a wonderful day as the New York media sets it's teeth into all the fresh meat the Jets just tossed them. :D

    Couldn't happen to a better team.

    Best scene of day 2 of the NFL Draft: Camera pans across the crowd in New York as thew pick is announced. Jets fans looking aghast and holding their heads, rocking back and forth screaming WTF?????

    Behind them? Patriots fans applauding and cheering as they realize what just happened.

    I mean, seriously....... you just can't write these sorts of scripts. :rocker:

    On the contrary, I think this is an excellent pick for the Jets. Gino may very well solve their quarterback woes if not this year, than the following year.

    Remember all those picks wasted to get Sanchez, well here is the opposite. The best qb in the draft falls into their lap in the second round.

    I hope I'm wrong, but I think the Jets may have the last laugh on this pick.

    I can understand the sentiment, but the JETS are stuck with Sanchez for at least two years. They simply haven't got the cap space to release him. They'd take a huge hit on his salary. So he'll be around the team in one way or another, and what with the NY Media being the predatory group they are, it's gonna be fun watching the carnage.

    Geno is already better than Sanchez - damn - if they had drafted me I would be better than Sanchez.

    You are waaayyyy overstating his capability. In almost any other draft year, he'd be a 5th round flyer and touted as a project and short yardage specialist. But the media needs to have QB prospects for the draft so he got elevated by at least two rounds, if not more.

    Does Rex have a Geno Smith themed tattoo yet? The answer to this question should be the #1 priority of the NY media.

    The season's first Thursday Night Football game will be Jets/Pats. Gonna be all sorts of fun stuff flying around in the lead up to that one.

    Sanchez will get cut and his and Revis' dead cap money will equal $40 million. Belichick needs to get Tannenbaum on the line and hire him to be the Pats' contract guy.

    If Sanchez takes his $8 million in guaranteed salary and sits on his arse all season rather than playing, does him getting the contract extension he did still prove that he is an elite QB?

    Geno is an immature head case, a Sanchez meltdown II in the making with the high profile NY media circus. Love it!

    BTW, didn't Aaron Rodgers tweet to Geno Smith that he should sit tight because all good things come to those who wait. I am sure Smith's response after he found out he was drafted by the Jets was:

    "That's for the F***ing s****y advise Aaron!"

    The kid couldn't take the pressure of not being picked in the first round he sat there sulking and had to be talked out of taking his ball and going home. Yeah hes just the kind of player that will be able to deal with the pressure of playing in NYC. :rolleyes:

    I suspect that the jets will simply spread cut Sanchez and spread the cap money over 2 years, and move on.

    You and I and most other rational folks would do that. But we're talking here about the New York Football Jets. The gift that keeps on giving.

    I don't know what would be worse: Eating that huge cap hit (even over two years) or having Sanchez sit at home and play Madden.

    heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh......oh yes!

    have any of you even seen a clip of this mutt behind center?...I saw one highlight, the D rushes through the line...the G Man TURNS HIS BACK to the rush and throws a DUCKLING PRAYER over his left shoulder that miraculously ends up a catch. THAT...that is a Geno Smith highlight. Just wait to you all see the Geno Smith "lowlights". Unbelievably bad judgements over and over and over. I cannot wait until Tebow sees THIS mutt competing with Mark Surcharge for the starting role...and Garrard too. 15 million GUARANTEED dollars to Marky Mark....wow...what a disastrous, idiotic decision this draft pick is....they HAVE to cut Santurd now and bite the cap bullet. The toe deviant won't do it though..watch.

    The soap opera may have a new twist with Geno, but it's the same epic ending.

    Like mgteich says, Sanchez probably cut and the Jets just decide to take the cap damage over two years.

    Geno earns the starting job. Besides being mediocre, his JAG RBs, WRs, awful TEs, and below average O-line will ensure him a terrible season. He'll implode, 2-14 season, and he becomes a Clausen waste of a pick that helps them net the #1.
