Geno Smith scores through air, on ground in Week 2


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith completed just 16 of his 32 pass attempts for 176 yards while throwing a touchdown and an interception in his team's 31-24 loss to the Packers in Week 2.

Smith also added 26 yards on seven carries and took it into the end zone himself on a bootleg from the one-yard line on the team's first drive after an Aaron Rodgers fumble created a short field. He then hit Eric Decker with a nice pass on a 29-yard touchdown to put the Jets up 14-0. After the Jets capped a 17-play drive with a Chris Ivory touchdown run early in the second quarter, Smith had trouble keeping the offense moving, and the Jets were outscored 28-3 from that point on.

Despite the two total touchdowns, it was a step back for Smith after he completed 82 percent of his passes in a Week 1 win over the Raiders. He'll look to get back on track when he faces the Bears at home on Monday night in Week 3.


Geno Smith plays well in victory


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Jets second-year quarterback Geno Smith played well in Week 1 in a 19-14 victory against the Raiders.

Smith was 23-of-28 passing for 221 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He also had 10 carries for 38 yards.

Smith's touchdown was a 5-yard pass to Chris Johnson in the second quarter. He also lost a fumble.

The Jets play at Green Bay in Week 2.


Geno Smith a low-end Fantasy option in Week 1


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) The thought of starting most quarterbacks at home against the Oakland defense has been typcially intriguing.

But perhaps not Jets second-year quarterback Geno Smith. And perhaps not against the 2014 Raiders.

Smith did enjoy a quietly strong preseason. He completed 23 of 33 passes for 268 yards with one touchodwn and one pick. His 91.5 quarterback rating was encouraging. But several factors weigh against sticking him in lineups, even in deeper leagues.

One is that the Raiders have bolstered their defense with the acquisitions of pass-rushing ends Justin Tuck, LaMarr Woodley and Antonio Smith, who combined for 21 sacks last season, as well as promising outside linebacker and top draft pick Khalil Mack. These are not the same Raiders that allowed opposing quarterbacks to compile a league-high 102.4 quarterback rating in 2013.

Smith, who finished last season with 3,046 yards passing, but 12 touchdowns and 21 interceptions, might also be short on weapons. It's too early to determine if new wideout Eric Decker was merely the beneficiary of having Peyton Manning at quarterback or if he can thrive playing pitch-and-catch with Smith. Jeremy Kerley is starting on the other side and the Jets have no featured back. Rex Ryan has declared that he will switch off between Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell.

Perhaps Smith will emerge as a viable Fantasy starter this season. But he's too big a risk at this point to trust.


Geno Smith officially named Jets starter at QB


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) The Jets officially named Geno Smith the team's starting quarterback Friday, a move that does not come as much of a surprise given his usage in the preseason.

"I think he's taken off from where he left off [last season]," coach Rex Ryan said after announcing the decision. "I expect great things in the future."

Smith has been working almost exclusively with the first time offense during training camp and preseason, as Michael Vick hasn't made much of a push to start. Smith made the decision easier with his solid preseason play, completing 69.7 percent of his 33 passes, for 268 yards and a touchdown. He added a rushing touchdown while turning the ball over just once.

Smith started all 16 games as a rookie, completing just 55.8 percent of his passes and finishing with 12 passing touchdowns to 21 interceptions.


Geno Smith looks sharp in dress rehearsal game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith appeared in full control of the offense Friday night against the Giants in exhibition play.

Smith hooked up with one of his new weapons, Eric Decker, for a 27-yard connection in the first quarter. In the second quarter, Smith found an open Jace Amaro on a playaction play for a 1-yard touchdown. He compiled 137 yards through the air while completing 9 of 14 passes. He added a touchdown and no interceptions, registering a 120.2 passer rating.

Smith was named the Week 1 starter for the Jets after the game.

Report: Geno Smith will start Week 1 barring injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) As expected, the Jets will go with Geno Smith as their starting quarterback in the regular-season opener, reports ESPN.com. An injury is the only thing that would change the team's plans and enable Michael Vick to start, the website.

Smith will start his third preseason game Friday against the Giants. In the first two games, Smith went 14 of 19 for 131 yards with an interception while adding a rushing touchdown.


Geno Smith scores rushing TD vs. Bengals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith played the entire first half of Saturday's preseason game against the Bengals.

Smith showed some struggles early on and was picked off by Terence Newman on his third series of work. He bounced back with a 1-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Smith compiled 98 yards through the air while completing 10 of 13 passes. He was unable to throw for a touchdown and had an interception, finishing with a 65.5 quarterback rating.

Through two preseason games, Smith has completed 14 of 19 pass attempts for 131 yards through the air.

Geno Smith solid in preseason opener


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith played two series in the preseason opener against the Colts, and he acquitted himself well. Smith completed 4 of 6 passes for 33 yards and added a 10-yard run while leading the Jets to a field goal.

He was replaced by Michael Vick, who will need Smith to stumble to have a chance at the starting job. Smith will play his second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16 at Cincinnati.


Geno Smith gets every first-team rep


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith took all 16 of the first-team reps Thursday, while Michael Vick got none, reports the New York Post. Until Thursday, Smith has been getting about 75 percent of the first-team snaps.

"I told [offensive coordinator] Marty (Mornhinweg) and Marty knows I understand that look, we have a certain mission to accomplish and we’ve got to get things going, we’ve got to get on the right track and I understand that. I won’t stand in the way of that," Vick told the paper.


Geno Smith gets bulk of first-team reps

Report: Starting Jets QB job is Geno Smith's to lose


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) The starting Jets quarterback job is second-year quarterback Geno Smith's to lose, the New York Daily News reports. It is believed that the only way Michael Vick will end up starting for Gang Green is if Smith stumbles in training camp.

Vick claims he still feels like a "premiere" quarterback but the team is committed to Smith so long as he earns it in camp. 


Jets ready for QB competition


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) One of the biggest question marks for the Jets this season is who will be the starting quarterback between Michael Vick and Geno Smith, reports ESPN.

So far, it seems like Smith is in the lead. The Jets plan to give him 70 to 75 percent of the first-team practice reps in training camp. 

Vick was mediocre in the spring practices, but the report says it's not a stretch to think he could light it up in the preseason. After all, he has a background in Marty Mornhinweg's offense, so it should be a seamless transition.

Publicly, Vick says he's OK with his role as the mentor/backup, but perhaps that will change if it becomes obvious he's the best man for the job. From the team's perspective, the best that could happen is Smith steps up and makes it an absolute no-brainer.


Teammate: 'It's Geno's team'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) Jets receiver David Nelson told CBSSports Radio that the entire team views Geno Smith as the starting quarterback.

"For all of us, it’s Geno’s team," Nelson said. "And from what we’ve been told and what we’ve been working toward, it’s Geno’s team, and Mike Vick is coming in to kind of (fill) a supporting role. If anything happens to Geno, we have a proven starter and a proven winner backing him up. That’s the direction we’re moving."

The New York Daily News said the real question is what happens if Smith doesn't perform up to expectations in the preseason. Vick could still unseat him, the paper said.


Geno Smith: Jets are Super Bowl contenders


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/8/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith said his team can play in the Super Bowl this season, reports ESPN.

"I feel good about our team making a Super Bowl run," Smith said via the NFL Network.

The report says the Jets, according to Las Vegas, are 66/1 odds to win Super Bowl XLIX, ahead of only the Bills (75/1), Raiders (100/1), Titans (100/1) and Jaguars (200/1).


Geno Smith to get 70-75 percent of first-team snaps at camp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith will take 70 to 75 percent of the first-team snaps at training camp next month, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg told the New York Daily News. Smith is clearly ahead of Michael Vick in the quarterback "competition."

As long as Smith doesn't flop, he'll open the season under center.


Geno Smith still ahead of Michael Vick


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) Geno Smith is still saying there's competition for the starting quarterback job with the Jets, but he is still ahead of Michael Vick. According to ESPN, Smith worked with the first-team offense at OTAs on Wednesday while Vick stuck with the second team. And while Smith is preaching competition, Vick said as recently last week that it's not a competition and that he's the backup. 

Geno Smith opens OTAs as starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Quarterback Geno Smith took the first snaps when the Jets opened OTAs, reports the Associated Press. Then Smith and Michael Vick shared reps with the first team.

Michael Vick thinks Geno Smith will start


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) Michael Vick said Thursday that the Jets don't have an "open competition" at quarterback and that Geno Smith is expected to begin the year as the starter

"Going through the competition (in Philadelphia last year), we knew both of us coming in that it was open competition and the best guy was going to win the job," Vick told the New York Daily News. "Pretty much cut and dry. This situation is different. It's kind of unique. Even though it's not an open competition, we're both competing every day."

Vick believes that if he and Smith both have good preseasons then Smith would be the starter.

"It's still tough right now ... I won't lie," Vick added. "Because deep down you always want to be a starter. Hopefully that opportunity will come again one day and I've just got to keep working for it."


Rex Ryan touts Geno Smith but says Michael Vick has a chance


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/15/2014) Speaking on WFAN-AM in New York, Jets coach Rex Ryan said that quarterback Geno Smith would be "hard to beat out" for the starting job in camp this summer. "He knows the offense forward and backwards," Ryan said according to the New York Daily News. "I'm definitely convinced that we can win with Geno Smith."

But Ryan wouldn't end the quarterback battle early, also saying that new quarterback Michael Vick, who the Jets signed this offseason, "definitely has a chance to win the job."


Michael Vick: Geno Smith is the starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) While Jets coach Rex Ryan has said quarterbacks Geno Smith and Michael Vick will compete for the starting job, Vick told The Star-Ledger that Smith is the team's starter.

"Geno's the starting quarterback for that football team," Vick said. "Ultimately our goal is to try to help Geno become the best quarterback that he can be. Myself and [third-stringer Matt Simms] are all trying to put him in a position where he can get better from year one to year two."

Vick's comments come on the heels of offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg saying Smith will get a few more reps with the first team at minicamp. Mornhinweg said, however, that Vick could still win the job.


Geno Smith to take first reps at OTAs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chris Johnson says Jets will have QB competition


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/21/2014) Newly signed running back Chris Johnson said last week that there will be a competition for the Jets' starting quarterback job between Michael Vick and Geno Smith in training camp this summer. According to Johnson, the battle will begin on even ground. 

"They didn't give me no indication," Johnson said when asked by ESPN Radio who had the inside track. "They said those two will battle it out in camp and may the best man win."

Vick is in his first season with the Jets after bottoming out with the Eagles last year. Smith is entering his second NFL season after starting 16 games for the Jets last year, throwing 12 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.


Rex Ryan: QB battle won't be a distraction


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan told Pro Football Talk that the quarterback competition between Geno Smith and Michael Vick won't be a distraction because "we're not going to let somebody else's agenda get in our way." Ryan presumably referred to the media.

Ryan also reiterated that Smith, who accounted for 18 touchdowns and 25 turnovers as a rookie, will be hard to beat out.


Rex Ryan: Starting QB job is wide open


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan said the starting quarterback job will be an open competition between Michael Vick and Geno Smith. "We want that competition," he said. "We'll let it all play out."

Ryan stressed he's seeking competition at every position, not just quarterback. He said Smith will be hard to beat out, but raved about Vick's mobility.

"He's an unusual guy," Ryan said of Vick. "He was unusual when he came out of the league because of how athletic he was but I think he's definitely still … you see all that athleticism he has. He can still run, moves well in the pocket, he's more accurate when throwing from the pocket than he used to be when he came into the league.

"He's got a big arm and can still run so very dangerous. I like the fact that both those guys give us the ability to run zone reads and all those types of things that help your running game. Having a guy, that mobile quarterback, is harder to defend then maybe a guy who's a stationary pocket guy.

"That being said, I'd probably rather defend a mobile quarterback than a Peyton Manning or Tom Brady."


Geno Smith applauds Jets for adding Michael Vick


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith called the team's signing of Michael Vick "awesome," reports the Associated Press. "We needed to find a guy that was legitimately a guy that could come in and play. I think that's what we did," Smith said. "Mission accomplished."

Smith said the competition will benefit everyone.

"It's just good to have a guy to compete with like Mike," Smith said. "We're going to compete. We're not going to say, 'Hey, you're the starter.' And we'll leave it at that. We want to get better.

"I love it. It's really making everyone work harder and keep you right on your toes because you don't have a moment to be satisfied or just say, 'I've arrived.' You've got to continue to work at it."
