Geno Smith runs out the back of end zone

New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith has had an absolutely terrible night in his first NFL start. He currently has three interceptions and just did his best Dan Orlovsky impression, running out of the back of the end zone while trying to avoid a sack. The only person happy to see all of this transpire has to be Mark Sanchez.

Geno Smith or Mark Sanchez for the Jets?

Geno Smith (@ocnnreport) New York is the best place in North America to be great at sports.  When quarterback Mark Sanchez was leading the New York Jets to back to back AFC Championship games he was the toast of the town yielding all kinds of perks, like dating supermodel Kate Upton.   But with that success came even higher expectations and as Sanchez, and the team, failed to...

Sanchez on bike at start of Jets practice

New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, dealing with a shoulder injury, is at practice riding a stationary bike but unlikely to participate in any throwing drills.

The Jets announced Sunday that Sanchez...

The less-than-thrilling victory over the Giants in last night’s game did little to resolve...

Rex Ryan Era Coming to a Close?

Rex Ryan has taken heat following Saturday night, for sending Mark Sanchez in the game during the fourth quarter of the 'MetLife Bowl', to play with backups. Sanchez injured his right shoulder joint, as a result of a blow. In the press conference, following the game, Ryan got slightly aggravated (somewhat reasonably so) due to repeated questions from NYDN's Manish...

In The Building – New York Jets vs. New York Giants MetLife Bowl Recap

We sent Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio to last night’s game thanks to the MetLife Foundation and their Road To MetLife Stadium experience. Here are five things he thinks after attending… 1. I think that Giants fans were generally very respectful. I wore a Jets hat and had a Giants fan tell me that i’m too good for the Jets, which was pretty hilarious. I cheered loudly for Geno...

Braylon Edwards Released by Jets

Wide receiver Braylon Edwards has been released by the Jets.Fantasy Spin:Edwards hasn't held much fantasy value since his first stint with the Jets back in 2010. Santonio Holmes (if healthy) and Stephen Hill figure get most of the targets, but Edwards could have been a nice option near the goal line.

Santonio Holmes Removed from PUP List

Good news for the New York Jets, Santonio Holmes has been removed from the PUP list. Holmes has been recovering from a Lisfranc foot injury that has caused him to miss 8 games last season, training camp, and the first two exhibition games this year.

Five things to know from Jets-Giants game

The New York Jets came into their annual preseason game against the Giants hoping to gain some clarity in their quarterback competition. It suddenly got more muddled.

Even worse, Mark Sanchez injured his right shoulder late in the game - playing behind...

REX RYAN | GLASS HALF EMPTY

Talk about “Rome is Burning”. New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan’s white-hot coaching seat just reached ‘scorcher’ level after his bonehead decision to play quarterback Mark Sanchez against rival NY Giants Saturday night.
