QuoteRyan Fitzpatrick ties Jets single-season passing TD record
Prior to training camp, Geno Smith was expected to be the starting quarterback for the New York Jets. Ryan Fitzpatrick would be his backup and only play if need be. Fast forward five months and Fitzpatrick has done nothing but play spectacular football and get the Jets in prime position for a playoff berth.
In 15 games, Fitzpatrick has completed 60.8 percent of his passes for 3,724 yards and has thrown just one interception in his last five games. His numbers have skyrocketed of late, so much so that he's even setting records.
With his game-winning touchdown against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Fitzpatrick now has 29 touchdown passes this season, which ties the single-season franchise record. Vinny Testaverde also had 29 in 1998, though Fitzpatrick has thrown for 468 more yards.
Now playing for his sixth team, it seems as though Fitzpatrick may have found a home, for now. He's 33 years old and hasn't been the most consistent quarterback, but he's giving the Jets more and more reasons to retain him after this season.
Per Fox Sports/ Brad Penner USA Today Sports
Needs 284 passing yards to Break Joe`s Team single season passing record of 4007 yards.Had 296 yards against the Pats so he can do it. All I can say its awesome to finally have a gun slinging qb with a td to int ratio of over 2 to 1.......its been a long time.
29 td`s (10th in td`s)is Fitz season career best.
Fitz TD/Int ratio 2.4% also career best.If you discount the 3 qbs above Fitz that only played a few games with a few tds Fitz would be ranked 12 in td/int ratio.
2015 NFL QB tds/ints and ratio percentages
Fitz should break his career best in passing yards set in 2011 (3832 yards) 3724 now. Be great to see him in the 4000 yards club.

Marshalls Sets Jets Single Season Reception Record. Could Set Jets Single Season Receiving Yards Record
Posted 28 Dec 2015
Brandon Marshall caught a pass in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the New England Patriots to break the New York Jets' record for receptions in a season.
The catch -- his first of the game -- was Marshall's 94th of the season. He later caught two touchdown receptions against the Patriots, giving him 13 for the season. That's the most in a season for his career.
Marshall also reached 100 receptions for the season to become the first player in NFL history to have as many catches in six different seasons.
He finished with eight receptions for 115 yards and the two touchdowns as the Jets continued their playoff push with a 26-20, overtime victory.
Remarkably, Al Toon's record lasted 27 years. He caught 93 passes in 1988, a mark that was challenged only a couple of times. Laveranues Coles came the closest, recording 91 in 2002.
Marshall is in his first season with the Jets, who acquired him in a trade in March with the Chicago Bears. The Jets surrendered a fifth-round pick, receiving a seventh-rounder in return.
Selected last week to his sixth Pro Bowl, Marshall is threatening Don Maynard's 48-year-old team record for most receiving yardage in a season. He finished the day at 1,376 yards. Maynard, a Hall of Famer, racked up 1,434 yards in 1967.
Per: Rich Cimini ESPN
Needs 59 yards to break receiving yards record.
Also take note 2015 is a career best for td`s in a single season for Marshall(previous 12). Second best receiving yards in Marshall`s career. Needs 133 yards to break single season personal best in receiving yards.
Marshall also likely to tie Jets all time team touchdown reception leader. Would need 3 to break the all time combined record.

Posted 23 Nov 2015Todd Bowles' patience running thin with Devin Smith
QuoteThe New York Jets are still looking for returns from their second-round investment.
Devin Smith hasn't been productive on the field this season and the patience from his head coach is running thin. Smith's lackluster rookie campaign was highlighted yesterday when he dropped what would have been a 46-yard touchdown in the third quarter, and it doesn't take much effort to notice that the Jets lost 24-17 to the Houston Texans -- by a touchdown.
"Our rookies have got to stop being rookies," Jets coach Todd Bowles said, according to the New York Daily News. "They need to grow up. They get paid like everybody else and they've got to start acting like they're not in college anymore."
The rookie out of Ohio State was thrown at four times during the loss and didn't haul in any of the four passes. He has just seven catches for 82 yards on the season.
Smith's forgettable performance comes a week after he fumbled a kickoff return that resulted in a Bills touchdown. Yet, the receiver is confident that he'll get over his rookie slump.
"It's tough, but I know my time is coming," Smith sad. "So I'm just going to keep working hard. When that day comes, everybody will know."
While Bowles' patience is waning, it's too early to lose faith in Smith. For Jets fans it's tough to see their young wideout struggle when their Big Blue roommates had a breakout rookie receiver last year. But the Ohio State product still has time to prove himself. After all, he's just a rookie.

He can be confident all he wants. His career will be short in the NFL with his Vaseline hands and not this great wr that an unnamed fellow hardcore Jets fan site member (who I'm cool with but love to rag whenever possible just like he loves ragging me. You know who you are.....lol)that used a Youtube greatest catches of his life video as his proof that Smith would be great.
If the reports would've been more like 50-50 I would've been a lot more confident in Smith but when I read dozens of reports and 98% of all scouting reports all say Smith basically sucks and would have a very hard time making it in the NFL I hated the pick before the season ever started and was sure he would be another Hill.
All the reports were the same..... has poor route running technique. And Smith has weak core body strength and gets manhandled and pushed off his routes easily by physical corners which means pretty much every corner in the NFL in this era. And worst of all they all said Smith is a body catcher.
You can get away with bad hands in the NFL as a tight end if you are good at blocking but not as a receiver. You can teach some things like route running technique and increase strength and teach better awareness to a point but you cant teach a wr with bad hands to have good hands without a ton of Stickum. You either have good hands or you dont. Just like speed cant be taught. You can tweak speed and hands to a point but its impossible to make a slow guy run like Bolt and its impossible to make a body catcher with bad hands to catch football passes thrown by NFL caliber qbs that average over 50mph(some qbs can throw footballs nearly 60mph).
Anyway just having fun with you man. But hope you have have learned your lesson about using Youtube videos as your proof of greatness for players coming out of college.
Posted 4 Oct 2015NFL hired 13 new officials for 2014 season and 9 more new for 2015 season. 22 New officials in the span of two years. So we have a lot of sophomore and rookie Refs in the game.
