The Jets have a very long history of utter ineptitude at the QB position. In the 53-year history of the franchise there have been only 18 times where a QB passed for over 3000 yards, and there is only one season in which a QB passed for over 4000 yards (Joe Namath, 1967). No Jets QB has ever thrown for 30 or more touchdowns, and only 11 have ever thrown 20 or more.
In comes Geno Smith – who unlike Joe Namath or Mark Sanchez, did not play in a pro-style offense in college – and in only his 5th appearance in an NFL game (regular or preseason), throws for 331 yards, and 2 TDs, with 5 passes over 20 yards. In doing so, Smith became the youngest Jets QB to ever throw for 300+ yards in a game.
Entering Week 4 of this season, Geno Smith has 801 passing yards, or 267 yards/game. He is currently on pace to throw for over 4200 yards – which would shatter Mark Sanchez’s rookie record by over 1800 yards, and easily breaks Joe Namath’s passing record for the Jets.
This makes you wonder, can Geno Smith:
a) Become the leader in the huddle and the locker room that the Jets have failed to find for the last 40+ years?
B) Sustain this level of play while reducing turnovers to become a Top QB in the league?
It is a tall order to fill. After all, many of these same questions were asked of Mark Sanchez when he took over in 2009 (albeit with a superior running game) and many people thought he answered those questions definitively in 2010 – then he collapsed.
In truth, the NFL season and Smith’s career are just too young to make any long term guesses at this time. But the future looks bright if Geno Smith can play as well as we’ve seen he can.

Joe Namath couldn't play in today's NFL look at his stats.

Ponder's stats are better then Nanath.

One game made Namath he has journeyman stats I would not want him as 2014 Vikings QB with his horrific 1970's stats.

A ball hit over the fence behind home plate is a foul ball. That is what you hit on Geno Smith. He has stunk it up even more than your "francise" Josh Freeman.

You still suck at understanding QB play and everything about football.

I guess you can pull your tongue out of the so called “guru’s” ass right about now.

Geno is NOT the next Dan Marino, he is not even the next Dan Orlovsky.... OK that is pushing it but nothing close to Dan Marino anyway! LMFAO!!!!

Geno is about to lose his starting position according to what I read.

But alas he is still doing harm to the Vikings. With Washington's W/L record, they will get the 1st round overall draft pick and probably pick the player we need.

GS sucks so hard it isn't even funny!

You couldn't even hit this one out of a sandbox from off a tee. SO how many times did Dan Marino get benched or throw more interceptions than completions.

bwaaaahaaahaaaa

Geno Smith is not longer the starting QB for the Jets.... he is now on clip board detail!

Way to go avant! You are proved your worth AGAIN! How in God's great name could you have ever thought Geno Smith was the "next Dan Marino"? Just STUPID STUPID STUPID... you poor boy.

saying Geno Smith is good is like saying the Titanic is buoyant.
