The Titans of New York are back, and no the Jets did not change their name again.
The Jets are at the top of New York football and look to continue their success on the road as they take on a 2-1 Titans team in Nashville. The last time these two teams met, the Jets won 24-17 in the Meadowlands behind the leg of Jay Feely, and an efficient game from then rookie Mark Sanchez(when he was somewhat decent). But there is a new man under center for the Jets and his name is Eugene Cyril Smith III....ES3 just doesn't roll off the tongue like RG3.
There is something about this Jets team that seems different from others. Perhaps it is the fact that Mark Sanchez is no longer the “leader” of the team. Maybe this offense is better run under new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. Or could it be Rex Ryan's new bevy of snack packs and other delights?(Gosh they're delectable). Whatever the difference is, Gang Green is rockin' and rollin'(see what I did there) and don't be surprised if the Jets fly back to New York a 3-1 football team.
Yesterday I read Seth Walder's article in the New York Daily News and what I read was quite...intriguing. Stephen Hill retold his watching of the 2013 NFL Draft. After seeing his team select Geno Smith, he fell asleep. Upon awakening he could not remember if what he saw actually happened or if it was a dream. He later describes this dream as, “a good one.” Hill struggled last year as a rookie but give the guy some slack, he was playing with the worst quarterback in the league and had an offensive coordinator who was better fit coordinating burger patties. This year, Hill should really open some eyes as his size and speed should become a major part of this exciting Jets offense.
Geno has been satisfactory over his first three games, throwing for over 800 yards with three passing touchdowns. However, he has already accrued six interceptions and has a sub par completion percentage. Now before you say that he really isn't that good remember that there once was a time when rookie quarterbacks had growing pains. By this time in 1998, Peyton Manning had thrown eight picks, and threw three more in his week four contest against the Saints. From my watching of Geno he has poise and a drive to move his team down the field that his predecessor lacked. There are going to be struggles, but Jets fans can rest easy as their season would not be on the track its on with the man....
