Jets fans are getting sick and tired of this up and down pattern but if they think that drafting a new quarterback and starting from scratch is the answer they have another thing coming. Whether or not the inconsistent play is QB Geno Smith’s fault is up for debate but do we really want to go down that road and draft a new quarterback again? There has been a lot of talk that the draft will be full of blue chip quarterbacks but you can’t expect Peyton Manning and Tom Brady to grow on trees. You can’t just keep getting new quarterbacks. Sooner or later you just have to develop the guy you have. It’s part of the growing process. The Jets gave quarterback Mark Sanchez the keys to the castle and when he was injured they just fell into Geno Smith’s lap as the Jets really had no choice. They have to wait and see if Geno can improve before giving them to someone else. The New York Jets (5-5) are playing away against the Baltimore Ravens (4-6) this Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET.
The New York Giants (4-6) are still trying to claw their way back to relevance and playoff contention. They fell in love with David Wilson too early and are now paying the price. His season ending injury makes even future play questionable. On top of that, Eli Manning’s mediocre play is exacerbated by the poor offensive line. The Giants have one of the hardest schedules in the NFL and backup quarterbacks are over. Its starters from now on and it’s not going to be easy. No more Packers without starting quarterback Aaron Rogers. It’s a big game for the Giants this week as they face the Dallas Cowboys (5-5) Sunday at Metlife Stadium at 4:25 ET.
Maybe the Eagles should have started with Nick Foles from the beginning. This is their bye week and they are in decent shape in first place at 6-5 as they await the results of this weeks’ games.
