    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.

    sexy rexy is actually kind of smart (in his own twisted-deviant way). He is "MARRIED" to sanchize - dont ask me why but he just WILL NOT give up on him. YET, he has to make an effort to APPEAR like he is looking for a real qb. ........hmmmmm what to do.....

    ...Draft a head-case. then when he explodes..... he can safely justify going back to marky-mark.

    He wasn't coming back. That is, until his agent forced him to. This guy is the poison pill that will push the Green Beans well past 50 years without a championship of any kind. He's a strong-armed, erratic, immature ignoramus. I cannot wait for him to hit the field and see the poop hit the fan in Jersey! :rocker:

    Poor Geno Smith.

    He's going to the wrong environment with Rex and the NYJ media.

    Only a headstrong young QB like RG3 or Luck would survive that circus. Someone like Geno Smith, who was visibly rattled at not being a 1st Rd pick??? He's going to get eaten alive.

    The crazy train that wears green and plays at the Meadowlands is looking more and more like an extremely dysfunctional expansion team...

    Cannot be happier to watch all those fans who donned their puke green jackets and used to walk around with some pompous bop in the 90's.. they get what they deserve, and maybe someone will realize that Rex is a good coordinator, but a lousy Head Coach or maybe a minister of propaganda..

    I simply love that pick. You saw yesterday that he lacks the intangibles to be a franchise QB. Doesn't matter how good your physics are, you need to have certain skills in this league in order to survive. Honestly I couldn't have thought about a worse team for him than the Jets.

    The smart thing would've been to simply draft Barkley in the 4th round and let the USC scrubs fight for the starting job this season, probably tank this season and take one of the very good QBs next year. I mean seriously next year could be a special QB class again and the Jets have wasted another high 2nd round pick on Geno Smith.

    They have huge salary cap issues, a roster filled with holes and they take a project QB as a high 2nd pick. What a dumb decision.

    West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith selected by NY Jets in second round of NFL draft, says Gang Green going to playoffs next season - NY Daily News

    Geno Smith may not have been sitting poolside, but the newest Jets quarterback wasted little time making his first guarantee moments after the Jets selected him in the second round on Friday night.
    “We’re going to the playoffs next year,” Smith said.

    Hes a chip off the old Wrex, he should have come out and said 'we're going to win the SB'

    IMO Geno Smith is very inconsistent and way overrated, if Sanchez sits it's an enormous waste or money (not to mention the sideline shots of him pouting would be priceless) and if they trade him it mangles their cap situation. :D
