    THIS. x1000

    Unlike Sanchez, Geno didn't let his turnovers get to him and even produced a touchdown right before the half after that last interception. Made plays all day.

    But lets be honest...Landry did a horrible job whiffing on the tackle

    Don't post links to jackasses like Myers, Semen, Womanish et al. People click, they get hits and salary increases.

    Thank you for your attention

    @AdamSchefterGeno Smith is 1st rookie QB drafted in 2nd-round or later to pass for at least 250 yards and win on Kickoff Weekend since 1970 merger.

    To be clear - the D gave up 17 points, 7 of them on a drive that started 5 yards from the end zone. They also scored 2 points. Any D that does that deserves to win, regardless of when the last 3 points are conceded. They essentially gave the Bucs 2 scoring drives all game - and one was for a FG.

    Sanchez gets the ball back with 50 seconds left in the game, needing a TD to win, and gets it on some great throws.

    Geno had a great game. No need to rewrite history to say so

    Before we get too excited about the new kid-a realistic view from Newsday reminds us to take deep breath and cross our fingers

    So far so good for Geno Smith

    September 9, 2013 BY BOB GLAUBER
    The text from the longtime, long-suffering fan arrived about an hour before Geno Smith took the field for his first NFL game, with the rookie quarterback carrying the hopes of so many whose souls have been crushed so often in four-plus decades of frustration and misery.

    "Let's see if Geno Smith actually has some skills," the message said, "or if he's the next Browning Nagle."

    The scars run deep, don't they? But that's the way it is for generations of Jets fans who have been teased by the anticipation of greatness, only to be disillusioned.

    More on Newsday: Jets schedule: Which team wins?

    It was 21 years ago -- longer than many Jets fans have been alive -- when Nagle made his first start and raised the expectation level with a scintillating individual performance against the Falcons. He threw for 366 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in a 20-17 loss.

    But it unraveled quickly, with Nagle eventually turning into yet another punch line for futility and the Jets continuing a mind-numbing downward spiral.

    Nagle went 3-10 as a starter that year, the Jets finished 4-12 and Nagle earned the nickname "Nuke LaLoosh" -- a million-dollar arm and a 10-cent brain -- after the pitcher from the movie "Bull Durham." Coach Bruce Coslet was so disgusted with Nagle that the Jets traded for Boomer Esiason the next year.

    If you don't remember the ill-fated Nagle, surely the start of the Mark Sanchez run is a no less painful reminder of how things don't always work out. Even after a promising start.

    Four years ago, Sanchez got a pep talk from Joe Namath before his debut against the Texans and had a dazzling performance in a 24-7 win. He threw for 272 yards and a touchdown and became the first rookie to go 3-0 after starting opening day.

    Even Namath thought Sanchez had a chance to become the next Namath. And now? After producing a league-worst 52 turnovers in the 2011 and 2012 seasons, Sanchez might never start another game for the Jets.

    Still recovering from a shoulder injury suffered in preseason and wearing a T-shirt and shorts, he watched Smith's debut and helped him decipher the Bucs' defensive strategy. But even when Sanchez gets better, it looks as if the only way he'll get back into the lineup is if Smith gets hurt.

    Smith was functional, throwing for 256 yards and a touchdown. But there was a lost fumble at his own 5 that led to the Bucs' second TD, and he was intercepted on his next series.

    But he did settle down and find a rhythm in the second half, showing good awareness of when to tuck the ball and run when nothing was open downfield. And he did have the presence of mind to run around right end in the final seconds, leaving enough time for one more play. Fortunately for the Jets, linebacker Lavonte David committed one of the dumbest penalties you'll ever see, shoving Smith after he went out of bounds. On the next play, Nick Folk won it with a 48-yard field goal with two seconds left.

    "I thought Geno did a really nice job," coach Rex Ryan said. "Where he really helped us was when he ran. Those plays helped us win the game."

    Smith low-keyed his performance. "It's not about me," he said. "It's about my teammates and this organization. I had some ups and downs. Every single thing has to improve. I've got lots of room to grow, and that's what I'm here for, to help improve this organization and improve as a player."

    He has his priorities right, and you can't ask for a more level-headed player. But that alone won't guarantee success in this league. Only talent and a commitment to consistency will lead to long-term success.

    As Jets fans have found out the hard way, the euphoria of early accomplishment often gives way to eventual failure. They can only hope that Smith is the one to break the cycle of disappointment.

    Too lazy to look them up, but Mark had multiple late game drives for the win. Problem was he usually played pretty crappy for 3.5 quarters before pulling the game out, but he still did exactly what we saw yesterday.

    Sadly most Jets fans refuse to acknowledge ANYTHING positive Mark did in green and white . . .

    History would show Sucky would throw a pick 6 to an on rushing lineman.

    Maybe its because he does not instill poise and confidence. He did ok a few years ago. Why not match recent history? Oh you are a Sucky fan! Jets fans want to win regardless of who the QB is. You guys can not get over that!

He still managed to make positive plays for his team. This is not to day that mark hasn't had some really good games cuz he did, but in a game like this he might've given us one of his classic 2012 performances. MARK DOESN'T HANDLE PRESSURE!!! Imagine the crowd if Mark threw an INT in this game?

    Geno can simply do more and that includes making something happen with his legs. Give the kid some time to develop.
    Spot on.. Geno silenced all our expert fans who said "he isn't ready" and there were a lot of them who are silent now. That impressed me the most about geno, he made a few stupid plays, the int was Sanchez like.. Tampa really came at him and knocked him around.. But the kid only got more tougher and better.. I thought Marty took a big risk throwing as much as he did with a rookie qb who didn't get a lot of action in preseason, but Marty was dialing up passing plays like we had Brady or Rodgers back there.. We sure didn't pass like that with Sanchez in his 1st two yrs..
