Let’s talk about the resiliency of our young quarterback, Mr. Geno Smith. Face it, he threw a terrible pass that resulted in the pick six. It was as bad of a decision as he has made all season. I know I had some words for my television screen that I cannot print here, as I am sure all of you did.
That’s going to happen with a rookie quarterback, as he grows. The exciting part is how resilient he is. To be a great NFL quarterback, you must have a short memory. You have to be resilient enough to forget about the bad play from earlier, and start it over the next time you get on the field. That is exactly what Geno did. He made plays down the field, and he made plays with his legs. Two touchdowns, one of them being a rushing td, and most of his overall numbers being earned after the pick six.
How great was it to see Chris Ivory get rolling, huh? It seemed like we all needed to be nervous when Bilal Powell didn’t get going, as he has been the only guy to get going all season. But yesterday, Chris Ivory rushed for a lot of yards, with that hard rushing style that everyone loved to watch in New Orleans. He ran like he was mad at the turf, to the tune of 104 yards, by far his biggest showing of the year.
Congratulations to our buddy Damon Harrison for recording his first sack in the NFL!
Finally, what is left to say about Nick Folk that hasn’t been already said. He is money when the game is on the line. He has ice in his veins, and I am sure glad that he is the kicker wearing green, not some other color.
Great win yesterday.
