While Geno Smith's 3 INT night may look bad on paper, former Jets TE Anthony Becht sees promise in the QB.  #Jetsnation after watching last nights game GenoSmiths performance was one of most accurate I've seen a QB in NY since Chad Pennington..cont — Anthony Becht (@Anthony_Becht) August 25, 2013 More after the jump...

Off performance there's no question Geno Smith is the game 1 starter vs the #Bucs — Anthony Becht (@Anthony_Becht) August 25, 2013 Becht, a WVU-product, ends by acknowledging his connection before others may point it out. Folks I'm not SHOWING ANY FAVORITISM towards Geno because he went to #WVU. THE TAPE DOESN'T LIE! And neither does my assessment — Anthony Becht (@Anthony_Becht) August 25, 2013 We'll take the praise with a grain of salting, seeing as anyone can have an opinion—it's the organization's that matters—but Becht does make some very valid points.
