That said, im fully on board the "Geezus Saves" train. Rewatched the Buffalo game last night in it's entirety. I was so wrong in that gameday thread. There are SO many things to be excited about with this kid.
A very telling quote from Santonio that nobody has talked about from his post game press conference. He's asked about his feelings on Geno in the 4th quarter of the Bills game and here is his response:
It looks like Holmes has already been sold on Geno.Honestly, we’ll give a lot of credit to Coach Marty [Mornhinweg] for calling the right plays for us and putting us in the right situations. With Geno’s poise, he can be as great as he wants to be. His opportunity is definitely something that we’re going to look forward to for a long time.
Montana? Are we talking about the Montana who sat for a year, came in on red zone plays, sitting the rest of the game, learning from the bench?
Telling is when a "fan" says their team should be 1-2 instead of their 2-1. As if the end of the Bucs game didn't happen. Better yet as if you have a fu(king crystal ball and just know that the game would have ended right where it did when Geno ran out of bounds if he wasn't hit late.
I prefer being the optimistic fan instead of some loser attitude SOJF, think that if Gates caught a pass 99% of WRs in the NFL catch, we're 3-0. If he holds on to another on the 10 we may have won easy.

1. My post stated that if they were in the same draft class Mark would have been selected as the 3rd/4th quarterback behind Geno Smith so you must have completely missed that part considering you went off on a rant about god knows what. Not to mention, the Jets DID almost draft Geno with one of their first rounders, but they weren't completely sold on the class outside of him AND because of the fact that there were fewer teams with desperate QB situations so the chances of one of the guys they wanted falling was pretty likely. They took a HUGE gamble and got their guy. Tannenbaum traded the f'ng farm for Sanchez and look where that got us. This GM seems to actually understand that patience can actually pay off. Drew Brees was a second rounder. Kaepernick? 2nd rounder. Wilson wasn't a first round pick and neither was Andy Dalton. You think that teams like the Jaguars, Vikings and Browns would still pick Gabbert, Ponder and Weeden if given a second shot? Guys who were projected to be second rounders if no teams were dumb enough to reach for them. At least Geno's resume and talent warranted the first round grade by many.
2. Absolutely STUPID to include a Pre-Season game in Geno's numbers. It's friggin Pre-Season for godsakes. You wanna play that game then fine, give me Marks totals with preseason and they'll look 10x worse, as if that's even possible.
3. If Rex Ryan wants to save his job, his best chance is to play a promising Rookie and tell the GM: "If my team looked this impressive with a Rookie QB, Killer Defense, and apparently no offensive talent, imagine what we can accomplish together when the kid grows up and improves and we build a truly lethal offense with new players around him." If he goes BACK to a 5th year vet who singlehandedly put him on the hot-seat after the abortion of a season he had in 2012 then you know what? Rex will completely deserve what will come to him should he do that. Mark Sanchez, barring injury, will never start another game for this team ever again.
4. Getting tired of this bullsh*t "Bucs handed us the game" nonsense. Guess what, if Geno never decides to take off or the QB in the game (I.E. Sanchez, Simms, Quinn) doesn't posses the ability to scramble like that, we don't GET that call. Not to mention some of the runs he made in that games kept important drives alive in the first place.

Leon was a Pro Bowl kick returner who was on his way to being a deadly RB in '09 before he suffered his injury.
Thomas Jones was a Pro Bowler RB in '08 and rushed for 1400+ yds in '09 should've probably gone that year too but his performance was overshadowed by Chris Johnson rushing for 2,000 yards.
His entire offensive line consisted of Pro Bowlers.
He had the #1 defense in the league.
Things change, players got hurt/got old, and contract choices had to be made. Sh*t happens, but a franchise guy should be able to overcome all that. You cant give every guy a massive contract. This isn't friggin baseball.
You are honestly embarrassing yourself. For your own good, please stop posting.

Given what Shotty produced with others, I'd say we're blaming the wrong guy. A crippled Chad ran a better O than your boy.
No matter how hard you try and paint a picture of doom and gloom saddling your boy, the reality is that Sanchez walked into the best scenario a young QB could hope for.
A top of the league OL.
The leagues best running game.
The leagues best defense.
You keep spewing the same nonsense. You keep trying to convince us that the Jets ran the game plan they did because is was what they wanted to run, when in fact it was because they had a OL, great RBs and sh1t at QB.
Argue it, go ahead.
Its amazing how good the offense looks this year, when its not anchored down by a HC/OC combo that has its roots in defensive minded football. For those who think Geno over Sanchez is the main reason your just not seeing the big picture.
