This tweet was posted before the Dolphins game.

Apparently Matt Simms threw an INT, too. I missed that. Ends the game with 38.9 passer rating, which was 30 points higher than Geno's.

— Chase Stuart (@fbgchase) December 1, 2013

Geno Smith now has as many games with a single-digit Total QBR as he has games with a double-digit Total QBR (6 each)

— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) December 2, 2013

Geno Smith's QBR was 1.6, per @ESPNStatsInfo. He becomes first QB in history of QBR stat (since 2006) to have four sub-5.0s in 1 season.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) December 2, 2013

Most underrated #Dolphins stat vs. the #Jets? QB Ryan Tannehill dropped back 44 times today and was sacked just once.

— James Walker (@JamesWalkerNFL) December 2, 2013

Jets are ranked 30th in total offense. Only Bucs and Jaguars are worse. #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) December 2, 2013

And 31st in points, 25th in points allowed. RT @BrianCoz: Jets are 30th in total offense and 12th in total defense

— Chase Stuart (@fbgchase) December 2, 2013

Geno Smith had 21 INT in four years at West Virginia. He has 19 through 12 games with the Jets. #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) December 2, 2013

Geno Smith has 4 of the 5 worst single-game passer ratings this season. #Jets

— Marc Sessler (@MarcSesslerNFL) December 2, 2013

The #Jets are 17-17 after a loss in the Rex Ryan era and have never lost more than three games in a row.

— Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) December 3, 2013

Jets have zero offensive touchdowns in 4 of their last 7 games. Wow!

— Mike Clay (@MikeClayNFL) December 4, 2013

@smartfootball also of note: he's 26th in YAC (per catch). He does rank 7th in yards per completion, for what that's worth.

— Chase Stuart (@fbgchase) December 4, 2013

All the passing offenses faced the past 3 games are in the bottom half of the league but Jets w/ Reed still allowing 25 yards more per game.

Jets-Dolphins Post Game Analysis

Matt Simms has replaced Geno Smith at QB for the NY Jets. Simms was benched for Justin Worley as a senior at Tennessee.

— Josh Ward (@Josh_Ward) December 1, 2013

Jets beat writers want to call Idzik for Milliner/Geno picks, but CB/QB are two positions you can't grade after a year (or 12 games).

— Chase Stuart (@fbgchase) December 1, 2013

Just saw a Jets fan vomit in the tunnel.

— Jane McManus (@janesports) December 1, 2013

In the first 3rd down, Rex called nickle personnel, Wilson replacing Snacks. Miami converted so he changed it in the next two 3rd down plays

— Gonzalo Estradé (@PFF_Gonzalo) December 1, 2013

It didn't work in the first opportunity as Miami converted again and the Jets had 10 men on the field.

— Gonzalo Estradé (@PFF_Gonzalo) December 1, 2013

Lets go through who Geno Smith's "weapons" are: 1) David Nelson, a career back up who could not find a team until well into this season.

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) December 2, 2013

4) Greg Salas - a career practice squad player who struggled to stay healthy all season.

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) December 2, 2013

Idzik's first 4 draft picks: 1) Benched 3 times 2) Rookie of Yr candidate 3) NFL leader in INTs 4) Couldn't beat out Ducasse in camp #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) December 2, 2013

In 9 years doing the Red Zone Channel @DIRECTV , I've never had more people complain when we went to a game than today for Dolphins/Jets.

— Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) December 2, 2013

Santonio Holmes played only 2 snaps yesterday. Kellen Winslow 17 snaps (31 pct), almost same as last week (33 pct). #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) December 2, 2013

I'm wondering ... Can Rex Ryan take away Geno Smith's starting job even though, technically, he never named him the starter? #Jetriddles

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) December 2, 2013

Over past 15 years #Jets offense has been ranked in top 15 only 4 times. Two of those years were under Rex. Sorry, he’s not the only problem

— Deb (@LilMissNYJet) December 2, 2013

Dee Milliner played in 75% of snaps before being benched. #nyj

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) December 2, 2013

Rex Ryan's only hope is to keep playing Geno, and say "look how close we were with the rookie."

— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) December 2, 2013

Go back and listen to Rex post-game yesterday. Stumbled his way through every answer about Geno/offense. Can't happen when you're the HC.

— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) December 2, 2013

Watching NYJ/MIA-on the Cromartie INT... its 3rd&12. Should Wallace simply tackled Cro? Offensive PI penalty prob get declined, make it 4th?

— Ben Fennell (@TheXOsOfLife) December 2, 2013

Rookie QBs and rookie CBs are the most volatile players. They're the most inconsistent players in the NFL. Calm down. Give them time.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) December 2, 2013

Rex says sitting Geno for another week wasn't an option. "He's our best shot. ...I believe he'll bounce back from this," said the coach

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) December 2, 2013

Rex says he needs to do a better job of getting Antonio Allen on the field. Seems to me (and others) there's an easy way to do that. #NYJ

— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) December 2, 2013

I wrote this last week: Rex is one of the most loyal people you'll ever meet. It sometimes hurts him as a coach. Ed Reed is an example.

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) December 2, 2013

This is obvious: but Rex finally admits that Holmes tweaked his hamstring in practice on Wednesday on 98.7. #nyj

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) December 2, 2013

Mark Brunell on ESPN Sportscenter said that David Garrard should start for the Jets.

— Dan Leberfeld (@jetswhispers) December 3, 2013

I found this to be funny considering who it's coming from.

Geno probably expected the blitz to be picked up, but the checkdown to Bohanon should have been obvious when he saw the pressure.

— Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) December 3, 2013

If your opinion on a player is changing week to week, you're doing it wrong. It's about body of work.

— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) December 4, 2013

Dee plays the ball very well when the play breaks down in front of him. Was not asked to back pedal in college, huge learning curve there.

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) December 4, 2013

His quick step as a pass rusher intrigued scouts, but nobody expected him to be a top run stuffer as a rookie. Also disrupts screens.

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) December 4, 2013

After talking to #Jets OC, u get the feeling Geno benching was somewhat about seeing how he responds! Geno has to get the ball out quicker.

— Brian Custer (@BCusterTV) December 6, 2013

Jets-Raiders Pre-Game Tweets

The Jets are 3 point favorites over the Raiders on Sunday #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) December 2, 2013

Darius Reynaud said the Jets are just asking him to return on Special Teams as of now. Nothing yet on offense. #Jets #NFL

— Jane McManus (@janesports) December 4, 2013

#Raiders are 2nd in league at plus-45 points in 1st quarter this season, but 31st in the final three quarters at minus-108. #Jets

— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) December 5, 2013

Deep ball may not be an issue this week for the Jets. OAK QB Matt McGloin's longest throw of the season is 36 yards.

— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) December 5, 2013

On a more serious note, Jeremy Kerley says he's unsure how elbow will respond to contact but looks forward to challenge. #Jets

— Greg Logan (@GregLogan1) December 6, 2013

Rex said Holmes won't play 60 snaps on offense, but he'll play more than 3. Said everyone on injury report is probable to play

Point is that, Geno has not played well at all but continues to receive minimum help from his WRs and TEs #Jets

So far in "Collision" (400 pages in) I'd say the #Jets that come off the worst are...

With Burress, unbelievable how after his prison stint and #Jets giving him a chance, he remained such an awful teammate

Antonio Cromartie very surprised to hear Kubiak firing. "I didn't see that coming at all. I thought they'd change personnel, not the coach."

Garrard told me he's undecided. He appreciates the Jets bringing him out of retirement but wants to play and "it's Geno's team."

Garrard told me the Jets explained their approach to him about coming back as "Once a Jet, always a Jet."

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) December 6, 2013

Just curious & looking ahead: #Jets have 17 players scheduled to be UFAs this offseason _ and not sure any are locks to be back.

From your tweets, sounds as though most of you guys want to see Folk and Howard back, and some said Douzable and Colon, too. #Jets
