The relationship between a quarterback and his wide receivers can make or break an offense. That is not to say that this is a prerequisite for successful quarterback play, but history has shown that trust between the trigger man and his ‘go to’ receiver can make a world of difference. Geno Smith will be supported by the leadership and experience of his new target, Brandon Marshall.
When Chan Gailey announced last week that “Right now, Geno’s the starter, unless something happens- an injury, or something like that” Jets Twitter naturally went into overdrive. Like seemingly nothing else, bringing up ‘The Geno Question’, is like holding a flame to blue torch paper; the results are explosive and spread quickly.

We’re back with another edition of TOJ’s #PickSix. This week, we are going to look at six position battles that will go a long way towards determining the New York Jets depth chart.
Joe Caporoso with a closer look at New York Jets starting quarterback Geno Smith heading into year three of his NFL career
The New York Jets named Geno Smith their starting quarterback today in a move that should not have surprised you. Let’s look at why they are did this, how Smith performed in his second year as a NFL starting quarterback and where he needs to improve to hold on to his job throughout the upcoming season…
Mike Donnelly breaks down the burning questions as the new York Jets enter 2015 NFL free agency
It is a new era in Jets football as new General Manager Mike Maccagnan and Head Coach Todd Bowles look to turn this franchise around on-and-off the field.

Mike Donnelly of TOJ says why fans should still believe in the 2014 New York Jets despite the loss to the Green Bay Packers
Let’s get something out of the way right off the bat. The New York Jets loss to the Packers was a gut punch and inexcusable considering the 18 point lead. I know it, you know it, Rex Ryan knows it, worst punter in the NFL Ryan Quigley knows it, everyone knows it. I’m not letting anyone off the hook, and I know there’s plenty of blame to go around…What I am going to say is how despite that loss, there’s an awful lot to like about this team through two weeks. There, now that we got that out of the way, let’s get started!
Mike Donnelly of TOJ breaks down an article proclaiming the Giants better than the New York Jets from Jason Keidel
A few weeks back I wrote an article breaking down a particular crappy column by Gary Myers of the Daily News. I borrowed the format from an old awesome website called Fire Joe Morgan (FJM) that used to pick apart things in a similar fashion, and we got pretty good feedback here from it. I’ve been waiting for another column to pop up that could match that level of absolute garbage, and today I believe I’ve found it!
TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio predicts New York Jets QB Geno Smith’s second year.
Day two of training camp is in the books and plenty of praise has been heaped on second year QB Geno Smith for his command of the offense and the confidence he’s shown so far. However, confidence doesn’t win you games. If it did, Tim Tebow would still be a starting QB in the NFL. We thought it would be a good time to take a look at how a handful of other QBs have recently done in their second year and then make some projections for Geno SMith..
Joe Caporoso on the early “quarterback controversy” for the New York Jets
This is “slow” time in the NFL calendar. Despite OTAs, there is really not all that much news pouring out. This leads to the need for story generation. Not surprisingly, the headliner of that story generation around the New York Jets is the quarterback situation. There is nothing new or groundbreaking to report about it. The same quotes are being recycled from early March. Yet, elements of a shut out local media who have been left in the dark on the team’s thinking throughout the entire offseason is knee jerking into writing things like this…
The team responsible for the Butt Fumble is in danger of mishandling a potentially volatile situation. It’s probably Smith’s job to lose, but team officials haven’t characterized it that way. They speak in code phrases, saying they expect Vick to “push” Smith and to compete with the second-year player.
Joe Caporoso on if Geno Smith can carry over his play from December of last season for the New York Jets
Many are assuming Mike Vick is going to waltz into the starting quarterback job for the New York Jets. However, if Geno Smith can replicate his play from the final month of the season and grow in the offseason the way he theoretically should, he is the frontrunner to start week 1.
