An NFL quarterback’s first game is never easy, especially if you happen to be playing for a circus-like team like the New York Jets; and playing in possibly the most relentless media city in America. Yet Geno Smith rose to the occasion today, and played very well in his first NFL start. The rookie from West Virginia proved that the moment was not too big for him. Smith threw 38 passes, and completed 24 of them, giving him a completion percentage of 63%, he also threw one touch down and one interception, while rushing for 47 yards. Those are very good number for a rookie debut, and Jets fans should be very optimistic about their future starting QB. To put those numbers in perspective, let’s take a look at the first NFL starts of three of the amazing rookies from the 2012 draft class.
