    I didn't watch the game but it is encouraging to hear someone have a positive analysis of his first game. He can learn from that game and move on.

    Becht offers unique assessment of Geno
    BY NICK ST. DENIS

    Geno Smith made his first professional start Saturday in the New York Jets' exhibition contest with the cross-town New York Giants.

    At the end of the night, Smith's stat line looked as follows: 16-of-30 for 199 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions over three quarters of action. Those sub-par numbers coupled with Mark Sanchez's injury had fans, bloggers and the media up in arms about the state of the Jets' quarterback corps.

    Sunday, former Jets tight end and NBC Sports football analyst Anthony Becht took to his Twitter account to sing an original tune regarding Smith's performance.

    Here's Becht's analysis (converted from a sequence of tweets and cleaned up a little for blog purposes):
    "After watching last nights game, Geno Smith's performance was one of most accurate I've seen a QB in NY since Chad Pennington. Stop reading the papers, reading terrible tweets and looking at stat lines.
    Lets start with the INTs:
    (1) Spadola catches the ball then the DB takes it from him... not Geno's fault. (2) Throws ball across middle with pressure in face. Geno must stand in and deliver that ball... play he can learn from. Confidence to do that will come. (3) Tuck makes a great play and surprises him... it happens. Geno's eyes never saw him, D makes good play.
    So in my eyes, 1 bad INT. Outside of that folks, wake up. Geno was dropping perfect passes across the board for 3 quarters. Add on 5 DROPS -- 3 by Kerley and 1 each by a RB and FB. For the game, I only saw 3 bad balls... one of which was INT over throw to Winslow.
    Jets fans, if you don't get excited about the QB, you're seriously lacking in your ability to judge good football play. Off [his] performance, there's no question Geno Smith is the game 1 starter vs the Bucs. Folks, I'm not SHOWING ANY FAVORITISM towards Geno because he went to West Virginia.
    THE TAPE DOESN'T LIE! And neither does my assessment."

    You really want to try and make it seems like the 7% difference between Mark and Geno is a big deal in Mark's favor? REALLY? If the Jets WR's and RB's didn't drop 5 perfect passes there's your difference right there. Mark is in his 5th yr and he needed some drops on Geno passes in order to have a 7% lead? Geno is 22 of 37 and if you don't have those 5 drops he 27 of 37 then Geno would be at 72.9%. All of a sudden everyone has a different take on the comparison so far. I think it's highly probable that Geno can make the corrections and put up much better numbers while reducing his turnovers.

    If he was in the open field and dropped it we would be reading how he sucks.

    The ball was barely behind him, it was on his hip, a ball he has to catch. WOrse he can't let a defender take it away from him, either he catches it or it goes to the ground.

    I don't understand why that negative troll [Namath] even bothers posting on this site. As I said yesterday, hope he GTFO.

    Marty and his staff will watch the tape and break it down. These are the people who will be the final judges. Certainly there was much that needs to corrected and they will take that in to account. Also Mark injury will play into the plan on who best to start.
    Yet all those who feel Geno is not ready to start seem to fail to recognize it was the kids first real action against a hostile defense.

    I am amazed how many people are saying this -- the ball was right in the CBs breadbasket. Sure you could say Spadola should have tried to knock it down, but he had a MUCH harder time of getting a good grip on that pass than the defender did . . .

    The ball was on his hands. He let it get taken from him. Princes positioning was right there he had a clear shot at taking it away but it was on Spadolas hands first, not in Princes breadbasket/

    Dude, I get you hate Sanchez, but c'mon, a little rational thought never hurt anyone.

    Mark has had a BUNCH of completions that turned into interceptions -- were you defending him at the time?

    Mark has had a BUNCH of dropped passes -- were you defending him at the time?

    Yeah Mark's been in the league for 4 years, but Geno has three years of college under his belt -- does that cut Mark ANY slack?

    Yeah Mark has been brutal the past two years, but Geno arguably had more talent on his WV team than Mark did on the Jets.

    Point is, there's nothing wrong with saying Geno had a bad game. He doesn't have to be better than Mark yet. But when you go SO out of your way to "prove" that he is, you just end up hurting your own argument . . .

    Agree to disagree. I watched every replay and while Spadola touched it first, it was a MUCH easier catch for Prince to make, especially since he was moving TOWARD the ball while Spadola was moving AWAY.

    If Spadola wasn't there it would have looked like Geno was throwing a perfect in-stride pass to the defender . . .

    You just don't get the point of what I posted. It's not to say Geno is Better than mark right now. It's to illustrate that people aren't using any perspective when making a judgment of where Geno is at in the process. They are VERY close even tho it looks like Mark is way ahead. If you look at the small margin of error here then those 5 drops were huge for Geno. It takes him from 72.9% down to 59.5%. Each one of those drops on perfectly thrown balls made a huge difference. It's not just that. There's also the idea that if you don't account for strength of competition then you're also not being realistic. There's a HUGE gap between Geno facing his 1st big test against the Giants D verses Mark facing the Jags and Lions as a 5th yr vet. When making your calculation of Geno's performance you have to take these things into account. Also the fact that Geno didn't play in last weeks game. So he went from 7 passes in his 1st game, Injury hampered practice, no game and then the Giants in a mini rivalry game. HUGE difference in circumstances there. So I grade Geno's performance vs. Mark's on that curve. Perhaps you just look at everything the same with no intelligent observation, but I don't. Mark faced ZERO adversity and easy competition. If you can't see that then fine live in your fantasy world.

    you sound like a Sanchez apologist.

    No were the same people who didn't expect him to light it up because he was a raw rookie with no NFL experience - hence he's not ready. Were not overreacting its those who have an urgent need to have Geno start week 1 that are making this an issue.
