Brad Smith does it again

The New York Jets sure are lucky to have Brad Smith.

In case you were watching the end of the New York Giants – Philadelphia Eagles game yesterday, you missed Jets kick returner Brad Smith opening the game by taking the kick-off 97 yards for a TD.  It marked the first time the Jets have opened a game with a kickoff return for a touchdown since Leon Washington returned a kick 86 yards for a score against the Washington Redskins in 2007.

For Smith, it was the second kick returned for a touchdown this season and the third of his career. Smith, at 29.1 yards per kickoff, this season, sure is a pro-bowler in Rex Ryan’s eyes.  “If Brad Smith doesn’t make the Pro Bowl, it’s an embarrassment,” Ryan would say in his post-game conference.

It was the 14th kickoff return for a touchdown by the Jets since Mike Westhoff joined the club in 2001, which leads the NFL.
