Geno Smith has had an absolutely horrific as quarterback for the New York Jets, being so bad that it's likely he will be replaced as the starter and his head coach and GM will both get fired.
But against the Miami Dolphins in the last game of the Jets' season today, Smith thrived and was incredible. Well that is except for one play where Cameron Wake nearly broke him in half.
As Smith rolled out to his right, he attempted to dump the ball off to a receiver. The only problem was that Wake followed him all the way and managed to transform his body into a missile of sorts, with his feet leaving the ground and pulverizing Smith's chest.

I'm actually impressed that Smith got up and carried on after this. It is the last game of their season after all and he was clearly shaken up after the play, staying down for a moment before regaining his composure.
I bet that Geno is happy he got up now too. As i mentioned before he was incredible today, putting in a Pro-Bowl caliber performance in throwing for a career high 358 yards as the Jets beat the Dolphins 37-24.
If Smith could've played like this two or three more times this season then maybe Rex Ryan and John Idzik wouldn't be getting fired on Black Monday tomorrow.
