Jets QB Geno Smith: I'm motivated by winning
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) The Jets have been doing their due dilligence in scouting college quarterbacks leading into the draft, but current starter Geno Smith plans on maintaining that position. He claims he's not even thinking about potential competition.
"You have to expect anything," he told the New York Daily News. "I believe this is my team. I go out there and I work hard and I try to lead the guys the best way that I can. ... I don't listen to the outside noise. I don't think it's important at all. I don't think it motivates me. I'm motivated by the fact that we need to win."
So is new coach Todd Bowles, who wants his quarterback taking that mental approach.
"If you look at what we draft instead of worrying about what you can do, you're going to lose your spot," Bowles said.
The interest in college quarterbacks, however, is based on Smith's inability so far to help the Jets become a consistent winner. He performed better down the stretch last year, however, completing 66 percent of his passes for 1,001 yards and six touchdowns with just two interceptions in his last four games combined. The Jets won two of those games.
Jets' Geno Smith spent two months training with QB mentor House
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) Jets quarterback Geno Smith spent nearly two months this offseason training with former major-league pitcher Tom House, according to ESPN. House said he had Smith focus on four basic metrics: Biomechanical, functional strength, nutrition and a mental/emotional profile.
"I think he left incrementally better in all four metrics," House said.
House described Smith as a hard worker that is "not afraid to put in the time." House said they challenged Smith and "he met the challenge perfectly."
"He's really good," said House, who has also worked with Tom Brady and Drew Brees. "None of them are perfect -- Nolan Ryan and Greg Maddux weren't perfect when they came to me -- but we try to train for perfection."
Smith spoke highly of his time with House, who said he made "incremental changes in (Smith's) delivery and incremental changes in his conditioning."
"This should make him a more consistent performer for a longer time," House said.
Jets QB Geno Smith vows to be better
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/6/15) Geno Smith, who figures to be in a battle for the Jets starting quarterback job with Ryan Fitzpatrick, said Monday after the team's first voluntary workout that he needed to perform better this season, per Newsday.
"In this league, there isn't room for excuses ... moral victories. I've got to put this team in a position to be successful," he said.
Smith managed 2,525 yards, 13 touchdowns with 13 interceptions a season ago.
Todd Bowles: Jets planning to add another quarterback
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/2/15) Jets coach Todd Bowles is a fan of competition.
Instead of being content with quarterbacks Geno Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Matt Simms competing for the starting job, Bowles, via the Newark Star-Ledger, said the team has plans to add a fourth signal caller to the mix.
Bowles said this on a conference call with season-ticket holders.
"Ryan's going to compete, as well as Geno's going to compete," Bowles said. "And we hope to add somebody else to help compete with that along with Simms."
That could mean many things, such as adding a veteran quarterback, a mid-to-late-rounder or someone looking to get back in the league. Or perhaps it's a sign the Jets want to take a quarterback — possibly Marcus Mariota — with the sixth overall pick if the opportunity arises.
Jets QB Geno Smith enters training camp as starter
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Jets head coach Todd Bowles said that for now quarterback Geno Smith will be the starter entering training camp, reports nj.com.
"Geno, he's our guy, right now," Bowles said at the NFL annual meeting at the Arizona Biltmore here. "When we get to training camp, Geno will start out running the first-team reps. He's the only quarterback we have right now, if we don't draft one, with Ryan Fitzpatrick hurt."
The Jets recently picked up quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in a trade with the Texans.
Smith, 24, was drafted in the second round of the 2013 draft. The thrid-year pro has thrown for 5,571 yards with 25 touchdowns and 34 interceptions.
|Jets quarterback Geno Smith will enter training camp competing for the starting job with Ryan Fitzpatrick. He should be considered the favorite as the incumbent, but Fitzpatrick has a history with new offensive coordinator Chan Gailey. If the Smith who showed up in Week 17 last season against Miami -- 358 passing yards and three touchdowns -- can show some consistency, we could be looking at a Fantasy stud. But Smith has been anything but consistent in two seasons, which is why there's even a competition with Fitzpatrick. Smith would have plenty of weapons at his disposal as the starter with Eric Decker, Jace Amaro and the addition of Brandon Marshall, but he has to take advantage of his opportunity. If Smith does open the season as the starter he would be just a low-end No. 2 Fantasy quarterback, and he's not worth drafting in the majority of leagues.
