Big deal? No.

Laughable signing? Don't see why it would be.


That's kind of how I look at it too.
Can he run a complex offense that counts on the QB

reading what the defense is doing and not what they are showing? He was horrible at check down options.

although they did sign Josh Freeman a few years back and cut him.
Just for the record  
Chris684 : 3/20/2017 4:06 pm : link
Geno Smith has a very small NFL starter sample size on bad teams within a bad organization where more than one potentially promising QB career has gone to die.

He's had some pretty bad to decent starts mixed in. His main issues (maturity and perhaps leadership) are intangibles that, if he's committed, will only grow within this organization.

Josh McCown continues to get opportunity after opportunity to backup and compete for a starting gig and yet he is what? 2-20 in his last 22 starts?

Given what's out there, I like the idea. He's a project that could work out in their favor even if only a couple of starts should Eli ever go down.

someone said, only one of Johnson or Smith has any chance of being on the final 53. Why carry two QBs like that? Any third QB will be a draft pick.

The Don Strock or Danny White that's out there? Please
Let all of us know. Want piss away 5-7 million for Hoyer. Want that idiot Kaepernick?

And I've been shifting on Reese for years about his OL
strategy and results. For which he Is about as bad as it gets I the whole NFL

Anyone who is whining about this is clueless.

I agree he's an upgrade and perfectly fine for a back-up. He can win games and he has a much better supporting cast and support system then he's had before. That Jets team that drafted him was a mess Ryan's last few years.
I myself am VERY happy for this signing...  
Blue Angel : 3/20/2017 4:24 pm : link
People who say Geno suck don't know crap about football. Marshall who played with him and who caught balls from him should know a whole lot more than you guys.

Jay on the Island : 3/20/2017 4:31 pm : link
I am not a fan of Smith but he does have abilities that the Giants obviously feel they may be able to mold into a solid backup QB. He has flashed at times most notably in the season finale two years ago against Miami.
Trust the professionals  
CT Charlie : 3/20/2017 4:42 pm : link

Nobody went after Matt Moore last year and he returned to the Phins. He played very well for them when Tannehill went down.
Kind of surprised he got more than vet minimum, though.

Why the going rate for backup QB's isn't the minimum. Chase Daniel made 7 million annually in his last contract. Matt Moore makes close to 6 million annually.
People get so absolutely emotional about backup QBs.

The Chase Daniel one is a bad one, but I'd take Moore over Geno.

Josh Freeman for a month, as well.

Matt Moore was an 8 year Vet BU QB last year. He's the kind of guy the Giants should have went for. Not a project who thinks he should be starting that you need to teach how to be a pro.

on the 53 this year. One of Johnson or Geno will not make the final roster.
This is a great signing......  
Dry Lightning : 3/20/2017 6:22 pm : link
He has the talent of a starter. I think he is a good kid too. Made a few mistakes and the "fake news" capital of the world ruined his reputation. Remember, it was those same "fake news" geniuses who told us Eli could not play, and Coughlin should have been fired in 2005. Literally, they know nothing. Nothing. The good part is anyone with a brain in their head now assumes everything they say is a lie until proven truthful. Great job by Jerry Reese.
Always remember the Jets are a trashpile.

Anybody that comes from that circus gets a clean slate from me. Especially QBs.

I'm with you. I love this signing. Josh Johnson was our backup last year. Hasn't thrown a pass in about 5 years. Didn't hear much complaining (me included). But I love this signing. If it doesn't work out he's gone. But I'm hoping it does.

I'm pretty sure the list of people who meet that requirement is long, but I wouldn't pay most of them anywhere near $2M/yr. Let's hope it's heavily incentive based.


Psst...That isn't a lot of money in today's NFL. It's not 1992.

As long as he doesn't play. at all. I'm ok with him holding the clip  
PatersonPlank : 3/21/2017 10:45 am : link
board. Seriously, people here supporting him are saying his team sucked, his coaches sucked, his supporting cast sucked, etc. This also doesn't mean he is any good. I would have preferred a backup who at least has had success somewhere, Geno hasn't. Also, regardless of your reasons for why, he did suck with the Jets. It is pure speculation to say he is an NFL QB. At best, and I mean if he exceeds all hope, he could be Charlie Batch.
We need a player with a skillset

Well it's not like the jets would know what to do as far as trying to work with QBs.
