Intriguing matchup: Geno Smith vs. E.J. Manuel
So far, Manuel has the upperhand, playing better football, and posting up better numbers. In two games, Manuel has a 96 QB rating, completing 68 percent of his passes for 446 yards, three touchdowns and only one interception.
In two games, Smith has a 55 QB rating, completing 53 percent of his passes for 470 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions — Smith has also been sacked nine times.
It’s tough to say that Manuel was the better option because we have to take into consideration the opponents they faced, their offensive line and their offensive weapons. Manuel clearly has more offensive playmakers than Geno does, so it’s hard to say the Jets should’ve invested an early pick on Manuel.
We’ll see what Manuel can do against the Jets’ No. 2 ranked defense this Sunday.
