PLAYERS: Geno Smith
TEAMS: New York Jets
There have been plenty of funny and entertaining NFL touchdown celebrations in 2013.  With the playoffs just around the corner, the Wall Street Journal decided to dissect all 1,150 scores so far this year in a comprehensive infographic and video montage to find out the most common celebrations. The “Bump and Jump” is the most common celebration, having occurred 130 times in 2013—11.3% of WSJ’s sample. Players have opted for the old-fashioned spike 79 times this season—6.9 percent of the time.

[RELATED: Gallery: Best GIFs From NFL Week 12] However, it turns out that the players who usually dance in the end zone are the ones who seldom score—often rookies, defensive players and benchwarmers.  In fact, 64 percent of all the players who hav...

Geno Smith with pathetic flop against the Browns (GIF)

If you asked me whether I thought Geno Smith was worse as an actor or NFL quarterback, I’d have a tough time answering the question. The New York Jets quarterback flopped against the Cleveland Browns late in the second quarter on Sunday after being pushed while out of bounds. Smith was lightly pushed, yet he […]

Jets still backing Geno Smith

  getty images The New York Jets drafted Geno Smith in the second round and while the rookie quarterback has had more downs than ups the coaching staff is still behind him.

Geno Smith flops with the best of ‘em

Animated: Geno Smith’s flag-drawing flop

It would have been easy for the Browns to avoid the personal foul penalty at the end of the first half that gave the Jets a field goal try. That try, you will remember, was converted so the Jets could tie it up at 10 after going scoreless for all but the last two minutes or so of the first half. The Browns could have avoided that penalty by just not touching the Jets’ QB as he...

Geno Smith leads New York Jets past the Cleveland Browns

Before Sundays game against the Cleveland Browns, Fox Sports Jay Glazer reported that Rex Ryan told his New York Jet football team that despite that he may be fired at the end of the year, he wanted the team to go out and fight with him the last two weeks of the season. Geno Smith played the best game of his career Sunday. The Jets did just that, battling back from a 10-0 deficit...

Smith's arm, legs lead Jets past Browns 24-13

If this was Rex Ryan's home finale as the New York Jets' coach, his players made it a good one. Geno Smith threw two touchdown passes to David Nelson and ran for another score as the Jets topped the Cleveland Browns 24-13 on Sunday. With Ryan's job status uncertain, the Jets showed no signs of a team playing out the string. The players and coaches took a victory lap...

Initial Reaction – Today Was A Good Day, Jets Win As Rookies Step Up

It was a good day at MetLife Stadium. The New York Jets finished up the season 6-2 at home with an encouraging 24-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns. More important than the victory, was the performance of rookie quarterback Geno Smith, rookie cornerback Dee Milliner and rookie guard Brian Winters. Smith went 20/36 for 214 yards with 2 touchdowns, along with 48 yards rushing and...

Breaking Down The Play: Geno and The Dream

The New York Jets offense performed better than expected against a stout Panthers defense on Sunday, but could not hit the big play to stay in the game. Last week, I broke down a play where Santonio Holmes dropped a sure touchdown pass from Geno Smith. To keep things in perspective, I’ll break down a play where Geno Smith let down his wide receiver. Saalim Hakim, the recent addition...

Smith's Arm, Legs Lead Jets to Win

Jets rookie QB Geno Smith snaps out of a slump Sunday vs. Browns after throwing for two touchdowns and rushing for another.

Rex Ryan Unleashes Wrath on Referee After Geno Smith Flops Out of Bounds (GIF)

Rex Ryan reportedly thinks he might be losing his job, so he’s not going to go down without showing a little passion. Ryan unleashed some heated words at an official after no flag was thrown when Jets quarterback Geno Smith was pushed and took a tumble out of bounds on Sunday. Ryan and a line judge had a front row view when Browns defensive back Tashaun Gipson chased Smith out...

Clean vision, clean jersey equals clean game for Geno

BY NICK ST. DENISFrom time to time this season, Geno Smith has been part of the problem. Sunday, he was part of the solution.The New York Jets' rookie signal-caller played perhaps his best game of the season against a pretty good defense, tossing two touchdowns, rushing for another and turning the ball over a whopping zero times in Gang Green's 24-13 win over the Cleveland...

Browns extend losing streak to six with 24-13 loss to Jets

Check out the Steelers fan trolling the Browns on the road The Browns still have not won a game since their bye week. They are 4-11 after losing 24-13 to the Jets on Sunday. There’s really not much to say about the particulars of this one. It was just bad to watch all the way around. The Browns failed to score touchdowns with drops and a penalty that nullified a rushing TD. The...

The Morning After: Cleveland Browns vs New York Jets (13-24)

Since the New York Jets are eliminated from the playoffs, for me, Sunday’s game versus the Cleveland Browns was all about evaluating Geno Smith.  His challenge was to prove to himself, coaches, teammates, and I guess the fans too, that he deserves to resume his role as starting quarterback for this team next season.  Since it’s so late in the season, and this question still...

The Ghosts of Cleveland’s Past

There they stood in their white robes, their haunting ways bordering on persistent and obsessive. Those who were cast aside, neglected, passed over or left for dead, they showed flashes from the days of yesteryear when times were happier and knees were considerably less creaky. They fought for inches, crossed goal lines, hurdled would-be tacklers, blanketed star receivers and hauled...
