Preseason Game 3: Winners & Losers

Winners:

Geno Smith: It was easily Geno Smith’s best outing of the preseason, not that that’s saying much. Still, you have to like this level of command and composure from the 2nd year quarterback. Geno finished 9 of 14 for 137 yards and a touchdown, and didn’t turn the ball over.

The Defensive Line: For the first time all preseason, the defensive line looked phenomenal. They applied pressure well and stuffed the run.

Jace Amaro: Despite struggling this offseason to adjust to the playbook, the rookie tight end out of Texas Tech looks ready to push for a starting role.

Losers:

Ryan Quigley: 2 consecutive punts of less than 30 yards must have been embarrassing to the young man. The Jets should have a rotating door at the punter position until they find his replacement.

Secondary Depth: Another member of the Jets secondary went down tonight. This time, it was Antonio Allen. Allen suffered a head injury and it was not immediately clear how this will impact the Jets secondary moving forward, but you would be right to be concerned.
