Geno Smith is Rapidly Becoming a Turnover Machine Like Mark Sanchez Was

By Jason McIntyre

Geno Smith threw an interception on the second play of the game against the Titans. Then, in the second quarter, he scrambled for a first down, but instead of sliding, he just lollygagged and was stripped from behind (there’s another version at the bottom). The Titans quickly turned the fumble into a Jake Locker TD pass and the Jets trail 17-3.

It didn’t stop there. After the Jets drew with 17-6 and the defense got a stop, they got the ball back with a chance to get some points. Smith threw an interception on 1st down. That’s eight interceptions on the season and two fumbles lost. Even if he has a turnover-free 2nd half, he’s on pace for 40.

Mark Sanchez fell out of favor in New York because he had 26 turnovers each of the last two years.
