The embattled Jets quarterback’s problems have never really been about what hangs off his right shoulder, but what sits between his ears.
Coach Todd Bowles didn’t specify whether the Jets want to add a quarterback from the draft or free agency, but the team holds the No. 6 pick — and Oregon’s Marcus Mariota could be available.
A two-time Pro Bowler and former NFL passing yards leader, the Virginia product appeared in 11 games in 2014 but attempted just 10 passes.
The Jets are not going to reach for anyone with their first pick in the draft. As far as they are concerned, who they end up choosing will be about talent, not about need.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, acquired from Houston for a conditional seventh-round draft pick last week, is expected to be fully healthy by training camp and compete with Geno Smith for the quarterback job.
He’s not as sexy as Revis, for sure. But sometimes the smaller offseason moves can affect a unit as profoundly as the big ones.
Geno Smith is going to have himself some competition this summer.
The real bottom line is this: Even with Darrelle Revis, how much better do you think the Jets got this offseason?
The Jets are in the market — again — for a quarterback to challenge Geno Smith for the No. 1 job. But … who?
Could this be it-the first competitive Thursday night game of the 2014 NFL season? The Colts visit Houston as just a three-point favorite, and both teams are 3-2, so at the risk of being the Mary Swanson to your Lloyd Christmas, I’m saying there’s a chance.
The key offensive players for the New York Giants finally showed up, and the G-men rode the stellar efforts of Rashad Jennings, Victor Cruz and Eli Manning in their 30-17 triumph over the Houston Texans. The Giants moved to 1-2 on the season, while the Texans dropped to 2-1.
It’s time for the Giants to look in the mirror and figure out how they need to play. Houston has been able to execute, while coach Tom Coughlin’s team has failed to do so.
The Houston Texans are a surprising 2-0 under new head coach Bill O’Brien. Meanwhile, the New York Football Giants are still winless after losing their home opener to the Arizona Cardinals 25-14 on Sunday. This week, $100 million man J.J. Watt comes into the Big Apple looking to extend the Giants’ misery.
Geno Smith made a number of “rookie mistakes” in the Jets’ 38-13 loss to the Titans. The Jets are now 2-2.
It’s official: Doug Marrone is the Buffalo Bills’ new coach. The franchise released the announcement via text message on Monday, and a news conference at the team’s facility followed.
