New York Jets QB Geno Smith fares well in lates QB Rankings

Quarterback remains the most-important position in all of sports, but that doesn’t mean it’s not evolving. In fact, the past 10 years have seen a drastic shift in the way success is defined behind center. No longer are quarterbacks asked to simply stand in the pocket and deliver passes to receiver.

In defense of Geno Smith

It’s all Matt Ryan’s fault. Pre-2008 rookie quarterbacks had no expectations. Carson Palmer and Philip Rivers spent full seasons on the bench. Eli Manning waited until November for his first start. Ben Roethlisberger was a hero for starting as a rookie and just generally not making a McCown of himself. Only the truly exceptional rookies, your Peyton Manning’s and Dan Marino’s...

New York Jets QB Geno Smith keeps sliding in this week’s QB Rankings

Quarterback is the most important position in all of sports. That’s why teams are so willing to pony up big bucks to a signal caller when they have (or think they have) a guy who can do the job. One look at the highest paid players in the NFL will support this fact; it’s a list littered with QBs. But part of the equation is also tied to supply and demand. Sometimes, teams are...
