Otis Smith Fumble - New York Jets

“With the talent in this league, to give up one touchdown? With receivers on the field that move like Jaguars, move like deer? To say going into this season I’m not going to give up any more than one touchdown? No way. No way.  We’ve got a corner right over here [Glenn] that’s one of the best in the league and he gave up a couple touchdowns.”
