Geno Smith: Why can’t the Jets make a run to the Super Bowl?

Geno Smith AP

Jets quarterback Geno Smith sees no reason not to feel confident heading into the 2014 season.

Although the Jets are coming off an 8-8 season in Smith’s rookie year, Smith said he likes his team’s chances of winning a championship this season.

“I feel good about our team making a Super Bowl run,” Smith said, via Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. “You know, why not us?

Many people would look at the Jets’ roster and say there are actually plenty of reasons why they’re not Super Bowl contenders. And one of those reasons is that Smith hasn’t proven himself as an NFL quarterback, having completed just 55.8 percent of his passes last season, with 12 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.

But the Jets rarely lack for confidence at this time of year. Jets coach Rex Ryan has made his share of offseason Super Bowl predictions, and Ryan’s confidence may be rubbing off on Smith.

    Because they’re the Jets.

  2. youpeopleareallthesame says: Jul 6, 2014 7:36 PM

    What else is he supposed to say? We have no shot? (Looking at you Klinsmann)

  3. standrew26 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:36 PM

    Why can’t the Jets make a run to the Super Bowl? Geno Smith.

  4. my45eagle says: Jul 6, 2014 7:36 PM

    All it takes is average QB play Geno. You have a great young defense but you turn it over too much. Will have to turn them down. Mark Sanchez was close to having two rings. Nothing is impossible then.

  5. berniemadoffsides says: Jul 6, 2014 7:36 PM

    Because the front office makes terrible, terrible decisions each year and finds new ways to take a promising team and move them backwards.

  6. micknangold says: Jul 6, 2014 7:37 PM

    Well, Geno, you’re a pretty significant part of the reason why we can’t make a run to the SB.

  7. llojac1 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:38 PM

    Haha, keep dreaming!

  8. chillaxbro23 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:38 PM

    because they don’t have a quaterback good team no QB.

  9. chillaxbro23 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:39 PM

    because they don’t have a quaterback good team no pretty simple geno.

  10. chillaxbro23 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:39 PM

    QB*

  11. lowut5 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:39 PM

    Two words: Geno.Smith.
    That’s why.

  12. redeemerac says: Jul 6, 2014 7:40 PM

    LOL!

  13. arb927 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:40 PM

    Geno won’t even be the starting QB… Why would Vick leave Philly just to be a backup somewhere else?

  14. deafcone says: Jul 6, 2014 7:40 PM

    Because Chris Johnson can’t make plays from the sidelines. LOL.

  15. tomny0970 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:41 PM

    Boy. My team just doesn’t learn
    :-(

  16. mp4philly says: Jul 6, 2014 7:41 PM

    Mostly because they’re not good at playing football.

  17. MichaelEdits says: Jul 6, 2014 7:42 PM

    Not a run, not a jog, not even a brisk walk. Maybe an amble. Or just buy tickets like the rest of us.

  18. heeeeelzfan says: Jul 6, 2014 7:42 PM

    What is he supposed to say, “No way.” ?

  19. billsbackto81 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:43 PM

    With all these suspensions flying around for substance abuse, it’s just a matter of time before half the Jets team gets busted. What are these guys smoking?

    1. Chris Johnson feels he’ll run for 2k again.
    2. Rexy says ” every team gonna be afraid to play us”.
    3. Morinweig says Chris Johnson is first ballot HOFer.
    4. Geno feels the team will make the SB.

    And we haven’t even gotten to Training Camp!

  20. eaglesfan290 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:44 PM

    He was lucky to have an 8-8 season last year……..Geno has an attitude/ego problem great QB’s just play and let it show on the field.

  21. bonnovi says: Jul 6, 2014 7:44 PM

    If that’s the case I boldly declare that the Bills will also make a Super Bowl run.

  22. youpeopleareallthesame says: Jul 6, 2014 7:45 PM

    To clarify for those who aren’t soccer fans, Klinsmann is the USA head coach who famously claimed that we had no shot at winning the cup. No, we didn’t win, but WHAT KIND OF HC SAYS THAT CRAP?

  23. bobnelsonjr says: Jul 6, 2014 7:45 PM

    Because of Geno Smith.

  24. bearsnoah says: Jul 6, 2014 7:46 PM

    Because you’re a big oaf

  25. thestrategyexpert says: Jul 6, 2014 7:46 PM

    You don’t have to have a permission slip, take the title if you can.

  26. ccc23454 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:46 PM

    WHY can’t you? because your the QB and Vick is even worse. no QB no championship…

  27. mzim2756 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:47 PM

    Every team should be saying the same thing, if not , then they shouldn’t bother suiting up

  28. barrywhererufrom says: Jul 6, 2014 7:48 PM

    Because you are the quarterback Geno…

  29. skolnolombardilovers says: Jul 6, 2014 7:48 PM

    Hey the Jets have won more Super Bowls than the Vikings. Probably win another before them too
    Although those fans do have the championship team that most fits them The WNBA Lynx

  30. onbucky96 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:48 PM

    Have the Jets trainers checked Gino out for a concussion?

  31. urallstupid says: Jul 6, 2014 7:51 PM

    cause the jets S-U-C-K-S

  32. sportsfan18 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:53 PM

    QB play…

    Drafted Mark Sanchez years ago and he was middling at best.

    I know it was only Geno’s rookie yr but it didn’t go anything like Luck’s, RGIII’s, Cam’s, Russell Wilson’s etc…

    Compare Geno’s first yr stats to Mark Sanchez…

    They, Mark and Geno, seem pretty doggone similar to me…

    Geno doesn’t have the future of Russell, Andrew, Cam etc…

  33. mackcarrington says: Jul 6, 2014 7:54 PM

    This question is like putting one on the batting tee for your 10 year old.

  34. everyoneinthisroomisnowdumber says: Jul 6, 2014 7:55 PM

    Rex Ryan is rubbing off on Geno Smith? Gross…

  35. donnymacjack says: Jul 6, 2014 7:56 PM

    LOL, way to go Geno. You stole that one right out of the book of Russell Wilson’s father.

  36. tedmurph says: Jul 6, 2014 7:57 PM

    He hasn’t been around long enough to know he should disregard what Rex Ryan says.

  37. pats777 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:59 PM

    According to Rex, their Super Bowl is any game involving the Pats. So yeah, Geno is technically right, ROFL.

  38. mzim2756 says: Jul 6, 2014 7:59 PM

    Geno does not have an attitude or ego problem, this is the first thing he ever said,

  39. justwinbaby29 says: Jul 6, 2014 8:07 PM

    Nine weeks from today the Raiders will be slapping the Jets around the Meadowlands in the season opener. #justwinbaby

  40. dennis2488 says: Jul 6, 2014 8:10 PM

    because theyre bad

  41. cool10857 says: Jul 6, 2014 8:12 PM

    Because Geno, you are a BUST!

  42. piratefreedom says: Jul 6, 2014 8:12 PM

    “to get to the other sides” is asking “why did the chicken cross the road”

  43. nomoreseasontix says: Jul 6, 2014 8:13 PM

    They could make a run. If they had a QB…

  44. austindudero says: Jul 6, 2014 8:13 PM

    Ignore your critics Geno… swing for the fences dude. Oh yeah, and remember next year that you said the sb word before training camp.

  45. seatownballers says: Jul 6, 2014 8:13 PM

    Because they don’t have the offense. Patriots have owned that division for awhile

  46. ravens2xworldchamps says: Jul 6, 2014 8:14 PM

    Rex Ryan is a miserable head coach. He’s embarrassing, repulsive, and was never worthy of a Super Bowl ring.

    The right choice was John Harbaugh, Super Bowl Champion

    Ravens Two Time Champs

  47. whalesarenotmammals says: Jul 6, 2014 8:14 PM

    Even Sir Winston Churchill in his prime (pre-impeachment) could not help the Jets get to the Super Bowl.

  48. ariani1985 says: Jul 6, 2014 8:17 PM

    Cause you suck!

  49. lightofkolob says: Jul 6, 2014 8:19 PM

    Because Rex Ryan thinks Geno Smith is a starting QB

  50. guitarfreak21 says: Jul 6, 2014 8:21 PM

    How many SB call outs do the Jets have to make before they learn they can’t handle the mojo… unless they know it and just want to quietly build their team with high 1st round picks lol!

  51. woodygg says: Jul 6, 2014 8:28 PM

    Because you’re QB. Simple.

  52. raiderapologist says: Jul 6, 2014 8:30 PM

    Terrelle Pryor had a better QB rating than you did last season, Geno. And he took 10 sacks in one game.

  53. 34defense2014 says: Jul 6, 2014 8:33 PM

    Hey billsbackto81: what are they suppose to say? We suck????

  54. thewoodedarea says: Jul 6, 2014 8:34 PM

    DRUG TEST HIM PLEASE!!!!

  55. bbwasright says: Jul 6, 2014 8:34 PM

    He’s right. If the Jets can go into their bye (week 11) with 6 wins, they have a great chance of getting a Wildcard spot (they will not unseat the Patriots from the AFC East). Unfortunately, to win 6 of their first ten games will require wins against three of the following opponents: Packers, Bears, Lions, Chargers, Broncos, Patriots and Chiefs (assuming the Raiders, Bills and Steelers remain pushovers). Even if the Jets get much better than last year, I don’t see them winning 3 of those 7 games. But if they do win 6 of those first 10, they stand a good chance of finishing the season 11-5, and on a roll for the playoffs.

    Gotta love this time of year – even the Jets, Bucs and Jaguars have a chance to make a run at the Superbowl…

  56. jjackwagon says: Jul 6, 2014 8:35 PM

    How about you try winning your division for the first time in over a decade.

  57. 34defense2014 says: Jul 6, 2014 8:38 PM

    I do recall a team wining a Super Bowl with a lousy QB? 2000 rings a bell? Then the following year they went out and picked up a “QB” then didn’t win??

  58. ccc23454 says: Jul 6, 2014 8:41 PM

    when was the last time a team finished last in their division and played in SB??? never and aint gonna this year either, just stop talking and also your the NJ Jets.

  59. officialgame says: Jul 6, 2014 8:41 PM

    Because you’re the QB and you haven’t shown much is the long and the short of it.

  60. wahoo21 says: Jul 6, 2014 8:45 PM

    You will find out on Oct 5th when you play against a real quarterback and then the next week when you get some guy named Manning…….then you just have to beat the teams in your division.
    People wonder why you are the lowest rated QB in the NFL…..you haven’t done anything except talk

  61. alshonbrandontandem says: Jul 6, 2014 8:55 PM

    Even Mark Sanchez thinks Geno Smith sucks….

  62. shlort says: Jul 6, 2014 8:58 PM

    Why can’t the Jets make a run? Well, Geno… With You as one of few viable options at QB, the Jets can’t make a run at anything.

  63. whatjusthapped says: Jul 6, 2014 8:59 PM

    When Geno retires, he will make a good Viking fan. He is already delusional beyond repair.

  64. j0esixpack says: Jul 6, 2014 9:04 PM

    They might want to focus on breaking their tie with the Houston Oilers for AFC East titles before guaranteeing any more Super Bowls.

  65. winorlose6burgh says: Jul 6, 2014 9:04 PM

    Cause there mouth is to big to feel those shoes

  66. mzew233 says: Jul 6, 2014 9:05 PM

    What a real joke the regular season is for many teams, and purely a profit machine with the illusion of ‘any given Sunday’

    You cannot make it to the SB for the following reasons:

    -Tom Brady
    - Bill Belichick
    - Peyton Manning
    - demeryous Thomas
    - Von Miller
    - Monte Ball
    - Jamal Charles
    - The Indianapolis Colts
    - Rex Ryan
    - Tom Brady

  73. qdog112 says: Jul 6, 2014 9:28 PM

    As a rookie Andrew Luck hit on only 54% of his passes and had nearly as many INTs as Geno, but now he’s considered a top tier QB, by some.

    All things considered, 8-8 with that group was an accomplishment. Smith bashing is a national pasttime, but the kid is on the right track.

    Maybe he needs to flash a couple selfies from Vegas or grow a neck beard to get respect for doing it the right way.

  74. chilomane says: Jul 6, 2014 9:28 PM

    Because geno smith is their quarterback and Thayer suck

  75. weareluckytohavemikeflorio says: Jul 6, 2014 9:33 PM

    the combined IQ of the Jets quarterback might add up to the necessary IQ of a starting QB in the league.
    there you have it

  76. bucsorbust says: Jul 6, 2014 9:34 PM

    Oh Yeah, it’s definitely possible. It’s also definitely possible I’ll win Powerball this week. In fact, it’s possible I’ll win it three weeks in a row. Wow, I’m so excited! Oh…but…”possible” is not always the friend of “likely.”

  77. bucsorbust says: Jul 6, 2014 9:38 PM

    The Jets probably have a better chance of Michael Vick being elected honorary President of the New York SPCA than they do going to the Super Bowl.

  78. 11whodey says: Jul 6, 2014 9:48 PM

    Because they don’t have a qb.

  79. steelcurtainn says: Jul 6, 2014 9:50 PM

    lol. Another year of a player predicting why cant the jets make the superbowl. Thanks for the comedy, pal.

  80. donterrelli says: Jul 6, 2014 9:55 PM

    Lofty aspirations, Mr. Smith. I respect you for that.

  81. TheWizard says: Jul 6, 2014 9:56 PM

    Because Rex is a fantastic coordinator but in over his head as top dog.

  82. theravenlives2 says: Jul 6, 2014 10:03 PM

    I do recall a team wining a Super Bowl with a lousy QB? 2000 rings a bell? Then the following year they went out and picked up a “QB” then didn’t win??
    ==============================
    That team also had the best defense in the history of football. The Jets sure as hell don’t ahve anything like that!

  83. youpeopleareallthesame says: Jul 6, 2014 10:03 PM

    Why are ravens fans even on here? This post wasn’t even close to about you. Get over 8 and 8 and we can talk…

  84. thefiesty1 says: Jul 6, 2014 10:05 PM

    8-8 twin sisters with the Cowbabies, that’s why it ain’t going to happen. Only thing the Jets win consistently is the idiot fans that attend the annual draft.

  85. zo121179 says: Jul 6, 2014 10:06 PM

    Because you’re not any good.

  86. crenshawpete714 says: Jul 6, 2014 10:09 PM

    Because of you, Geno

  87. patsfan112 says: Jul 6, 2014 10:10 PM

    Because the Patriots are in your head. The Jets think beating the Pats in one silly home game is the key to making a SB run. Fact is, they have to win a lot more then just that one game.

  88. drewzducks says: Jul 6, 2014 10:16 PM

    The Jets are the real NFL masters of stupidity and habitual failure.

  89. billsbackto81 says: Jul 6, 2014 10:22 PM

    Hey billsbackto81: what are they suppose to say? We suck????

    How about something like, ” we’re going to go out there, be competitive and play smart football. Hopefully it leads to the playoffs”.

    I know intelligent statements that are comprised of common sense is not exactly the Jets way, but hey, anything is possible.

  90. goldrush36 says: Jul 6, 2014 10:25 PM

    Because the teams that do win…. usually take a one game at a time approach.

  91. demolition510 says: Jul 6, 2014 10:26 PM

    Sounds like a Jeopardy category.

    I’ll take $1000 Alex

  92. alphamh says: Jul 6, 2014 10:27 PM

    If you start they wont make the playoffs, GENO SMITH sucks

  93. brava66 says: Jul 6, 2014 10:46 PM

    I agree that Geno Smith is not the best but why is he called a bust by so many after his rookie 8-8 season? Not necessarily a Geno fan but many other rookies have done much worse and not received the criticism that Smith has. I know it’s the Jets and all but still…shouldn’t we give him at least one more season before making final judgments?

  94. supercam1 says: Jul 6, 2014 10:50 PM

    What is he supposed to say? It’s extremely unlikely they’ll go to the Super Bowl, but NFL history has proven teams can make surprise turn arounds. The Panthers went to the Super Bowl two seasons after a 1-15 season (03-04) and the Cardinals went to the Super Bowl in 08-09 as well. They both lost, but definitely surprised many fans.

  95. uncletuna says: Jul 6, 2014 10:51 PM

    Not only does he have the look of a deer in the headlights…

  96. jayfish6402 says: Jul 6, 2014 10:52 PM

    Geno is a talented player. But he is not going to make a Super Bowl, especially in his second year in the NFL. They aren’t even going to win the division, that’s obviously to the Pats, but I can see a 9-7 or maybe, maybe even 10-6 Wild Card.

  97. jrs1972 says: Jul 6, 2014 10:59 PM

    Drug test that man IMMEDIATELY. And I thought ryan was the king of putting the stupid thoughts that go through his mind into a microphone

  98. 1logicalvoicesays says: Jul 6, 2014 11:15 PM

    Because you are the QB.

  99. jchipwood says: Jul 6, 2014 11:32 PM

    Everyone thinks the pats are the team to beat and we beat them last time we played cause their coach attempted to heat once again, and was caught once again, so why not?

  100. revelation123 says: Jul 6, 2014 11:32 PM

    Because Geno Smith is your QB.

  101. jchipwood says: Jul 6, 2014 11:43 PM

    Good luck as a wildcard cause the patriots 1. Are spying your plays and 2. Has your playbook and 3. Gets every pass interference call possible even when the db is not even close

  102. jetsfaninindy says: Jul 6, 2014 11:44 PM

    Geno should keep his mouth shut until he can get up to 15 TD passes. Dude is a joker. I am no Vick fan. But, I strongly prefer him.

  103. holdsteady76 says: Jul 6, 2014 11:58 PM

    I thought this was an Onion head line.

  104. vikinganswer says: Jul 6, 2014 11:58 PM

    Look at your QB meeting room and you have the answer.

  105. smackingfools says: Jul 7, 2014 12:16 AM

    Because they need a better quarterback. And receivers. And corners. And safety’s. And O line. Etc etc etc

  106. ninjapleazee says: Jul 7, 2014 12:38 AM

    Why not us is so played out. What’s next? jet strong?

  107. mrneto72 says: Jul 7, 2014 12:49 AM

    Because you are losing your first game to the RAIDAZ, that’s why

  108. thewoodedarea says: Jul 7, 2014 12:50 AM

    Lets see the only NYC team (the 3 major sports) to have not won or been to the championship in 45 years.

    Their QB was dead last in QB rating last season. Michael Vick is your savior?

    Perhaps the JETS should MUP Geno Smith (mentally unable to perform)

  109. thetooloftools says: Jul 7, 2014 12:59 AM

    The Super Bowl isn’t “spin the bottle”. You don’t take turns. He’s talking about winning a Super Bowl and you hear NOTHING from the defending champs.
    Are, wanna be’s, will never be’s.
    Guess which two run heir mouth the most.

    the combined IQ of the Jets quarterback might add up to the necessary IQ of a starting QB in the league.
    there you have it
    ****************
    IQ he says? Geno’s making millions, while the brave genius behind his keyboard is bagging groceries. If you’re so smart, why aren’t cutting multi-million dollar deals instead of smearing a young man who’s gone farther than you or anyone with your blood will ever go?

    It takes one hellava IQ to swing at people who can’t swing back, from mommy’s basement.

  111. billbrasky72 says: Jul 7, 2014 1:41 AM

    The Yankees or Knicks probably have a better chance of making it to the Superbowl than the Jets.

  112. draconian1111 says: Jul 7, 2014 3:10 AM

    12 TD 21 INT – the answer takes the snap from center.
    Geno couldn’t read a defense in college, can’t read a defense now. Really, never did see why people were so hot for this kid – soon as he hit ANY real Big 12 competition (one that played…defense) he folded BAD.
    Doesn’t take much talent to throw to a wide open receiver. Guess what you don’t see too much of in the NFL? Wide…open…receivers.

  113. RegisHawk says: Jul 7, 2014 3:43 AM

    Somehow this will turn out to be Russell Wilson’s fault. He was using the phrase “Why not us?”, then went on to win a SB. I suspect Geno thinks it’s just that easy.

  114. hanklin89 says: Jul 7, 2014 4:14 AM

    Because the Patriots are in their division and the Broncos are in their conference, that is why.

  115. segageeknavarre says: Jul 7, 2014 4:19 AM

    Guys he can make it maybe not this year or next year but he will all he has to do is BOLIEVE!

  116. etyaps says: Jul 7, 2014 4:52 AM

    Ummmm, mainly because you’re their starting qb

  117. insider7 says: Jul 7, 2014 5:38 AM

    Hey Geno, just remember that the last time the Jets played in a Super Bowl, man had not yet walked on the moon, Lyndon Johnson was president and the Vietnam war was still raging.

    We’re creeping up on half a century ago.

  118. sclazo says: Jul 7, 2014 6:05 AM

    Because the jets suck suck suck

  119. ez4u2sa says: Jul 7, 2014 6:22 AM

    To clarify for those who aren’t soccer fans, Klinsmann is the USA head coach who famously claimed that we had no shot at winning the cup. No, we didn’t win, but WHAT KIND OF HC SAYS THAT CRAP?

    A non-American, German one…

  121. fiverings37 says: Jul 7, 2014 6:29 AM

    Dont see the issue here. Its not like the Jets were a 4-12 team last year

    In the free agency era of the NFL every year you get teams going from 5-11 to 11-5 and the playoffs and vica versa.

    No one can name all the playoff teams and get them right, there’ll be surprises this year just as theres been for the last 15 years.

    The Jets ‘could’ be one of those teams

    Today I learned that the Jets’ locker room has no mirrors.

    Someone said to compare geno smiths stats to Andre lucks rookie stats. I just did… Andrew lucks rating 76.5, geno smiths rating 66.5. Geno smiths completion percentage is actually higher. The jets had without question the worst group of WR last year. Andrew luck rating increased his second year, if Geno can do the same the jets can make the playoffs. Anything can happen in the playoffs.

    Me: Because of Geno Smith

  128. omeimontis says: Jul 7, 2014 9:10 AM

    The reason is that a quarterback who throws nearly twice as many interceptions as touchdowns is not good enough to make a Super Bowl run.

    To clarify for those who aren’t soccer fans, Klinsmann is the USA head coach who famously claimed that we had no shot at winning the cup. No, we didn’t win, but WHAT KIND OF HC SAYS THAT CRAP?

    One who’s coaching a very young team and trying to lessen the pressure on the players by shifting it to himself. No way in H-E double hockey sticks the U.S. is on the same level as the teams still playing right now.

    Headline: ‘Player on Team X expresses confidence in himself and his team”

    Can training camp start already so we have actual stories to talk about?

  131. nyneal says: Jul 7, 2014 11:11 AM

    Geno Smith wants to know why the Jets can’t make a run for the Super Bowl. Answer: You aren’t good enough, you have a blowhard, loud-mouthed coach and a dufus for an owner.
    Other than that, you’re great.

  132. deliveredbysherpa says: Jul 7, 2014 11:31 AM

    What do they put in the Jets’ helmets? Stupidity?

  133. hehateme2 says: Jul 7, 2014 11:42 AM

    Because 1969 was IT for this club. They sold their soul for that shot at a title.

  134. nomar8477 says: Jul 7, 2014 11:49 AM

    Why not the Raiders? Since we are throwing out terrible teams. Of course he should be confident. So I will go with it. Why not the Browns? Texans? Bucs? Why not them? The Jets stink. I am assuming another failure this year.

  135. avrus says: Jul 7, 2014 11:52 AM

    Ian Q: “Geno, how do you feel about the Jets Super Bowl chances this year?”

    Geno A: “I feel good about our team making a Super Bowl run,” Smith said, via Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. “You know, why not us?”

    All it takes is average QB play Geno. You have a great young defense but you turn it over too much. Will have to turn them down. Mark Sanchez was close to having two rings. Nothing is impossible then.

    ——————–

    Sanchez wasn’t close to having 2 rings. The Patriots have now been to the AFC Championship 3 years in a row. Should I say that Brady was close to having 3 more rings? I don’t think so.

    You either get the rings or you don’t. Close only counts in horseshoes.

  137. bullcharger says: Jul 7, 2014 12:09 PM

    The Jets best chance to succeed is to continue to get some great players in free agency and try to buy a Super Bowl. The organization doesn’t have the mental game to build a consistent winner. They aren’t willing to become a team.

    Just wondering but, does your room or house look like Ray Finkle’s room except with Patriot’s memorabilia? Your name speaks of your fascination.

    Nearly passed out from laughing at the title of this article – ROTFL.

    The best part is that Geno has no clue that the voracious NY media will be using this quote over and over after every loss this year!

  140. fosterpops01 says: Jul 7, 2014 2:20 PM

    Even as a Jets fan why does this S#17 seem to come up every year

  141. djshnooks says: Jul 7, 2014 3:11 PM

    Because their QB sucks?

    Both of them.

  142. jetfanfolife says: Jul 7, 2014 6:09 PM

    V-I-C-K

    Sucks! Sucks! Sucks!

  143. switchwitch59 says: Jul 7, 2014 6:22 PM

    Sure they can run to the Super Bowl, just give them a map and tell them to watch out for traffic. Of course most people would prefer to fly but if he wants to run instead that’s up to him.

  144. politicallyincorrect says: Jul 7, 2014 8:31 PM

    Geno is not too smart.

    Thankfully for Jets, though, they do play in AFC East!

  145. Ed Bandell says: Jul 8, 2014 8:56 AM

    Don’t you have to be able to pass to make a super bowl run?

  146. jayfish6402 says: Jul 8, 2014 10:28 PM

    Yeah, everybody hates Geno Smith because he only had an okay rookie season. It’s a rookie season! Do I think he’s capable of winning the Super Bowl next year? No. Do I think he’s capable of ever making a Super Bowl? Probably not. Do I think he will be an above average starter, eventually? Yes.

  147. hishighness says: Jul 9, 2014 9:07 AM

    Geno: Why can’t it be the Jets in the Super Bowl?

    Rex Ryan: You’ve learned all I taught you very well, young one.

  148. packergator says: Jul 9, 2014 9:48 AM

    Not if you think that Michael Vick can be “the guy.”

  149. immafubared says: Jul 9, 2014 1:51 PM

    Why Geno. Its because you toss more interceptions that td passes that’s why.
