The standoff between Ryan Fitzpatrick and the New York Jets was already messy four months ago, when the team reportedly offered Fitzpatrick “backup money,” despite him having just turned in the kind of solid quarterbacking season the Jets have been sorely lacking in recent years. If you’re like me, you probably…
Bills coach Rex Ryan occasionally likes to choose game captains with an underlying message. Last Sunday, he picked three former Dolphins against Miami. This Thursday, I.K. Enemkpali—the former Jets linebacker who punched quarterback Geno Smith in the face over $600—will be a captain. Today, Smith said he doesn’t take…
Geno Smith is supposed to be at home, resting up his recently repaired jaw, doing nothing, and resting afterwards. Instead, the New York Post caught him tossing a football around with a friend. No big deal right? You don’t throw with your jaw?
Linebacker Ikemefuna Enemkpali found himself out of a job Tuesday after he broke New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith’s jaw over, reportedly, a $600 plane ticket. The third-string linebacker came out of the exchange okay, though, quickly getting picked up by the Buffalo Bills. Meanwhile, Smith is in a bad spot: Not…
The moment word got out that Geno Smith had his jaw broken in two places by a teammate, you KNEW there would be takes. You KNEW that a one-sided fight would become twisted into a referendum on Smith’s leadership. And so it has come to pass. God bless you, Jason Whitlock. God bless you, Rich Cimini. God bless you,…
We’ve spent most of the day wondering what exactly led Jets backup linebacker I.K. Enemkpali to sock quarterback Geno Smith in the face, and now it looks like we have our answer.
I know there are a lot of Jets haters out there, but this team should be celebrated for the gifts it just keeps on giving.
Some wild shit went down in the Jets’ locker room today, and SportsCenter threw up the Yelling Sports Guys In Suits signal as soon as the news broke. It’s all hands on deck, people! Cris Carter, what’s your fuckin’ take on this, my man?!
Lousy New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith will miss 6 to 10 weeks with a broken jaw after an irate benchwarmer unleashed the fists of fury on him this morning. Reports say Smith put his finger in linebacker IK Enemkpali’s face during an argument, and caught a hook for it.
The reasoning for now-released Jets linebacker Ikemefuna Enemkpali breaking quarterback Geno Smith’s jaw hasn’t surfaced yet, so until then, let’s make some guesses. To start you off, here are some staff theories for why Smith got punched:
The Jets’ 2015 season has officially begun:
The Jets have made a lot of impressive decisions this offseason, and that’s not the setup for a joke. Darrelle Revis came back, the already-fearsome defensive line improved with draft pick Leonard Williams, and they snagged Brandon Marshall for a fifth-round pick. There’s a lot of talent everywhere—except at the…
While officials reviewed whether or not Eric Decker stepped out of bounds on his 81-yard touchdown—he did—Jets quarterback Geno Smith and Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey chatted. The conversation turned tense quickly, and Casey hit Smith in the helmet, causing other players to join the fracas.
Before the Jets fell, ugly, to the Dolphins and to 2-10, every offensive starter received an individual pregame introduction. Every starter save Geno Smith, who entered, quietly, with the rest of the team.
The New York Jets have been nothing short of flaming dog poop this year. The quarterback situation has been an especially vital part of the circus act. It started back in training camp, when coaches were upset that Michael Vick was content with his backup role at quarterback. As our Samer Kalaf put it then:
Jets quarterback Geno Smith got yanked after a first quarter performance for the ages. If you missed his spectacular display of passing, we made a Vine for you:
She probably found the hit slightly less surprising than the fact this is a competitive football game.
Jets backup quarterback Michael Vick did a dumb thing this week when he kinda-sorta admitted that he wasn't all that prepared to play in the second half of the Jets' 31-0 loss to the Chargers on Sunday because he didn't take his weekly scout team reps seriously enough.
The New York Jets got stomped to hell by the San Diego Chargers yesterday, and the 31-0 blowout was so bad that Jets starting quarterback Geno Smith was yanked before the start of the second half. Smith's day got even more embarrassing after the game, a report claimed that he'd missed a team meeting on Saturday night.…
