    The Weekly Quarterback

    posted by: Ryan Ruppert | 0 comments | Editorial

    Geno Smith and the Jets battled all night against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday evening even to the point where they jumped out to a 21-3 lead early on in the first half of the game. Aaron Rodgers and the Pack battled back to go up a touchdown at the end of the third to complete the 18 point comeback with an 80 yard catch and run by Jordy Nelson. It seemed as though the Jets had tied the game on a 4th and 4 in Green Bay territory on a Jeremy Kerley touchdown reception from Geno Smith but the Jets inexplicably called a timeout prior to the snap to nullify the play. The Jets would eventually turn the ball over on downs and lose the subsequent game game by the final score of 31-24.

    The Jets needed a boost following their blowout loss against the Tennessee Titans and they got from their rookie QB Geno Smith who played a mistake free game, leading the Gang Green to a 30-28 win against the Atlanta Falcons. For the first time in his five-game NFL career Smith did not turn the ball over, which was the key against Atlanta's high-powered air attack. Smith's confidence spread around the team. The defense, which is ranked #1 in the league after this game, finally came up with a turnover. Special teams that had hardly provided any help before this game finally did a good job on the returns. And then PK Nick Folk just continued being the team's folk hero, kicking the winning field goal as time expired.

    The struggling New York Jets needed a spark and they got it when Rex Ryan finally did what he should have done weeks ago, as he benched QB Mark Sanchez and replaced him with QB Greg McElroy. The move paid off instantly when McElroy led the Gang Green to the game winning score on the first possession of his NFL career. He didn't put up impressive numbers, finishing the game 5 of 7 for 29 yards, 1 TD, but his arrival reenergized the seemingly lifeless team and put the fans back into the game.
