Geno hasn't been setting the world on fire, but he's played pretty well.
I have no idea how good he can be. I know he looks pretty good right now for a rookie. A little better than Sanchez 4 years in. He may or may not get better. I'd like to give him the season to improve. I just hope Holmes, and Kerley stay healthy, and Hill continues to improve. Then we'll have a good idea of whether or not we have a viable option here going forward. Gates needs to be the 4th, or 5th option for us to have a good gauge of how the offense is doing. I think we'll win a few games if that happens.
We won with Geno's legs in game 1 and lost by 3 points against NE in Gillette stadium on a very windy and rainy day. Giants lost first 2 games with Eli Manning.
It is not time to panic as this is a development year at best.
I cannot speak for all the senior fans here, but it does seem that the younger crowd has a fantasy football/madden mentality. Everyone expects arcade numbers from all the players on their respective teams.
Obviously its impossible to predict how any player will turn out after a few games, and in some cases a few years. Geno has his chance now, lets see what he does with it. He does not need hall of fame numbers, just dont turn the ball over. If he continues to turn the ball over game after game, he needs to be replaced. With the rookie cap we no longer have to wait 4-5 years before dumping players.
Agree with the OP. Its time for patience and a lot of support. We (the fans/administration) need to create the environment where Geno can succeed, even if the press is eager to derail.
This seems more true to me. I think most of the older guys seem realistic that Geno was our best option going into this year and will likely be our best option next year. Some fans are trying to push new style guys like Manziel and Boyd because they are exciting to watch. Most older fans can tell you these guys dont work very well in the pros. Geno has some good talent and hasnt looked bad at all so far. Give him the season if he can keep it up give him next year. Yeah his numbers arent great but lets be fair. Throwing 3 picks in the rain is not uncommon. Brady has a 74.1 QBR right now.
He also moved the ball in crunch time against the Patriots (we were turning the ball over in their territory at least), but he made rookie mistakes on the throws. I think the first two are probably catches in college and he has to learn to placement and develop better timing with his receivers. This will come in time.
I didn't care about him not going All-Madden on the field. All I asked was for competence and he failed.
Now, this isn't about Sanchez,.but I'm using him as an example of how I think.
Am i missing something? Where are the Geno bashing posts?
I'm definitely in the group that wanted MM to run the more more often. It has nothing to do with changing his overall philosophy of being a pass-first, aggressive offense. I enjoyed his approach week 1 a lot. But, the fact is Thurs night's game should have dictated to him to run the ball more often. First, Ivory was running the ball at a great clip. I understand he fumbled, but in that 4th quarter he only got the ball 1 time!! Second, the weather was brutal. The OL was playing well, both Ivory and Powell were running well, why not feed them??? Third, why not just slow the pace down a bit? Have guys like Ivory smack the Pats DL in the mouth a bit, then hit them with some play action.
For me the playcalling was way to predictable. Pass on 1st down for a short gain or incomplete, run on 2nd down for 4 or 5 setting up 3rd and 5 or 6...then punt.
I understand the thinking of you win in the league by being aggressive. But, sometimes you need to bite the bullet and change the gameplan. I really think the Jets would have won that ballgame if MM toned down the aggressiveness and fed his RB's the rock!
How did Geno win the game with his legs ?the guy tampa made a terrible play, without that they lose. Geno throws 3 INTS in the 4 th quarter in New England, he is not the answer. He is nothing more than a stop gap move, typical Jets.

I am too.
I supported Sanchez till last season and done with him but I'm annoyed with the whole QB BS during the PS in general.
If Geno cuts down his INT's to one a game it would make the games watchable. Thing is the Jets played an awful team and a pats team that played like garbage yet their play was nothing to write home about. Who knows how this season progresses...

How can you be happy with what Geno has done ? 4 Ints a fumble and 1 TD ? they should be 0 - 2
