Let’s continue along with another session of “Geno Smith Redux”.

We have been looking at, in groups of two, the season of Geno Smith, looking at the highs, the lows, and everything in between. Where did he peak? Where did he bottom out? And what was the rest of the year like. We are up to week number fourteen, so without further adieu….

WEEK FOURTEEN: VS. OAKLAND:

As expected, the Jets took control of this one early, and did not relinquish. They took a 10-0 lead in the first quarter, and a 20-3 lead at halftime. The final score was 37-27, and that score is a lot closer than the game really was, as the Jets handled the Raiders well.

For the game, Geno was 16-25 passing for 219 yards, one touchdown (25 yarder to Jeremy Kerley) and one interception. It was a great sign moving ahead, as Geno threw for nearly a 65 percent completion rate.

WEEK FIFTEEN: AT CAROLINA:

The Jets were looking to finally put two in row together after a fine performance against Oakland last week. The Jets travelled to Carolina to face Cam Newton and the Panthers.

Well, as the Jets did to Oakland the previous week, the Panthers went ahead and never relinquished that lead. The game got as close as 16-13, but the Panthers won it going away by a score of 30-20.

For the game, Geno Smith was 15-28 for 167 yards one touchdown, and one interception. The one touchdown as late, an eight yard pass from Smith to Jeff Cumberland. Geno was also sacked four times in this one, really making some of us worry about his lack of pocket presence.

We’ll finish the season soon.
