Maccagnan: Jets QB Geno Smith unlikely to go on short-term IR


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2015) Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan said Tuesday it is a "possibility" quarterback Geno Smith (jaw) goes on short-term injured reserve, which means he would miss at least the first eight weeks of the season. However, Maccagnan quickly added it was unlikely Smith would be placed on short-term IR.

Maccagnan suggested Smith would likely miss the first four games of the season. Although, he is expecting Smith to rejoin the team later this week. Smith is recovering from surgery to fix his broken jaw. He suffered the injury in a fight with former teammate IK Enemkpali.

Smith had plates and screws inserted into his jaw and will remain in the hospital over night. Smith broke his jaw when he got into a fight with a teammate. He is expected to be out for 6-10 weeks. 


Report: Jets QB Geno Smith to undergo surgery on jaw


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/13/2015) Jets quarterback Geno Smith decided to undergo surgery on his broken jaw after receiving a second opinion on the injury, according to ESPN. 

Sources said that Smith, who suffered the injury after being punched by a teammate Tuesday, will miss 6-10 weeks after undergoing the surgery. 


Jets' Geno Smith punched by teammate, suffers broken jaw


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/11/2015) Jets quarterback Geno Smith will be out 6-10 weeks after suffering a broken jaw as a result of a punch by teammate IK Enemkpali, coach Todd Bowles said according to the New York Times.

Smith was sucker punched in the locker room on Tuesday, and Enemkpali was subsequently released from the organization.

"You don't walk up to another man and punch him in the face," Bowles said per the New York Times.

Bowles implied that the altercation between the two was 'childish' and something that 'sixth graders could have talked about."

Smith's jaw is broken in two places, according to ESPN's Adam Shefter. 


Jets' Bowles says Geno Smith needs more consistency


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2015) While Jets quarterback Geno Smith did not turn the ball over during Thursday's OTA session, coach Todd Bowles said Smith needs more consistency, reports ESPN.com.

"It's been up and down," Bowles said of Smith. "He makes good throws, he makes some bad throws. There has to be more consistency for the quarterbacks overall."

Smith is competing with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting quarterback job. 


Jets QB Geno Smith bounces back with solid Wednesday practice


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2015) Geno Smith showed why he's still the Jets' starting quarterback with a rebound performance during Wednesday's practice. 

A day after throwing three interceptions, Smith bounced back with a solid outing that included zero turnovers and fine accuracy, according to ESPN New York.  

"(T)he quarterbacks were decent," Jets coach Todd Bowles said. "We just have to be consistent."

Smith took the majority of the reps during team drills and hit a bomb down the field to receiver Walter Powell for 70 yards. A year ago, Smith totaled 2,525 yards, 13 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. 


Jets QB Geno Smith tosses 3 picks in minicamp practice


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2015) Jets quarterback Geno Smith threw three interceptions during Tuesday's minicamp practice, according to ESPN.com. 

Two of those interceptions came in the red zone, where quarterbacks must capitalize on opportunities to be successful. Despite his mistakes, Jets coach Todd Bowles stayed mostly complimentary of Smith. 

"He's been making some good decisions," said Bowles. "I think his growth is coming along pretty good."


Jets G Willie Colon critical of QB Geno Smith


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Jets guard Willie Colon has a message for underachieving quarterback Geno Smith. And it's quite critical.

"We bought a Porsche. We've given him the keys. He can't crash it," Colon told Sirius XM. "Bottom line, he can't crash it. We need him to be on top of his game."

If Smith has already been on top of his game, the Jets made quite a mistake when they drafted him to be their starter in 2013. The team is 11-18 with him in that role and he owns a career quarterback rating of 71.5.

"Geno's career right now is extremely turbulent," Colon added. "He was never ready to be the starting quarterback of the New York Jets. ... He was thrown into the fire, and he was forced to cook. Everybody knows in this league, to be a quarterback, which is the number one position on the field, it's a maturation process you have to go through.

"... Now, Geno, with that said, has made his mistakes. He's said some things where you look at him like, 'What are you talking about?' But I think that's all about his maturation period."


Former Jet Garrard: Geno Smith too 'worried about outside noise'


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/29/2015) Jets quarterback Geno Smith has had a tumultous start to his career, to say the least. In his first two years in the league, Smith has underperformed while consistently turning the ball over.

Former Jets quarterback and backup to Smith, David Garrard says he knows why Smith has struggled to live up to the hype he had coming out of West Virginia, per ESPN.com.

"I definitely think Geno has the ability to be a pretty good quarterback. I just think sometimes he’s worried about the outside noise," Garrard said. "He’s worried about what his teammates think, what his coaches think, what the media thinks, what the fans think and he’s not just concentrating on his game and just making the plays that he should be making. You can see a lot of times in practice and in the meeting room, he’s spot on; he knows exactly what to do. But he has moments where he’s not doing that."

Smith threw for 2,525 yards with 13 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 14 games last season.


Jets' Bowles on Geno Smith being the starter: 'It's his to lose'


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Jets coach Todd Bowles said quarterback Geno Smith will receive all the first-team reps during OTA practices this week, reports the Associated Press.

"If he's playing well, he's the starter," Bowles said. "It's his [job] to lose."

Although Smith will receive a majority of the snaps with the first team during OTAs, Bowles said that would change during training camp.

"Come camp time, there will be competition at the spot," he said.


Jets OC Gailey: Geno Smith 'probably' Week 1 starter at QB


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey said there would not be a quarterback competition during training camp and that incumbent QB Geno Smith would "probably" be the team's starter during Week 1 of the regular season, per the Daily News

Smith, who threw for 2,525 yards, 13 touchdowns with 13 interceptions a season ago, figured to be locked in a battle with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starter's role, instead will go into camp with the job his to lose, according to Gailey. 

"You see an awful lot of talent there … he can be pretty good if he can get it all together," Gailey said. 


Jets QB Geno Smith: I'm motivated by winning


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) 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
(4/8/2015) 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
(4/6/2015) 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
(4/2/2015) 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
(3/24/2015) 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' Woody Johnson: Geno Smith 'probably way ahead of' Marcus Mariota


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Jets owner Woody Johnson isn't giving up on quarterback Geno Smith yet. 

Speaking to the New York Daily News, Johnson hinted he would be happy sticking with Smith instead of selecting a quarterback such as Oregon's Marcus Mariota in the upcoming NFL draft. 

"Geno’s probably way ahead of him at this point, believe it or not," Johnson said. "Whether you guys have skepticism or not … but certainly his college career was good."

The Jets are picking sixth overall and could see Mariota fall to them. The possibility of trading up could present itself, too. 

"That’s something that we’re going to look at," Johnson said. "We’ve got from now until the start of the season to address every position, not only quarterback. We’re going to have competition at every position. We’ve said that before and we’re going to have competition here. Hopefully, it’ll bring out the best in the quarterbacks and all the positions."


Ryan Fitzpatrick says he'll be ready for training camp


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/19/2015) Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who's coming back from a broken leg, said he'll be limited in OTAs but fully ready for training camp, reports ESPN.com. Geno Smith and Matt Simms will get more reps in OTAs, the report added.

Fitzpatrick is expected to start for the Jets after posting a 95.3 passer rating in 12 games with the Texans last season.


Jets WR Brandon Marshall: Geno Smith has 'drive' and 'passion'


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) Jets quarterback Geno Smith has seen far more downs than ups in two NFL seasons. Entering his third year, Smith will be asked to produce far more, especially now that he has receiver Brandon Marshall in town. 

Marshall, in an interview with the New York media on Friday, was complimentary of the young quarterback, who has yet to throw more touchdowns than interceptions in a single season. 

“I just think he has a drive and a passion that a lot of people don’t see,” Marshall said, via the New York Post. “From my conversations with him so far, it’s really got me excited.”

Smith only managed 2,525 yards, 13 touchdowns with 13 interceptions a season ago. He was sometimes pulled in favor of backup Michael Vick in games where he struggled mightily. Assuming Smith is the starter in 2015, he won't have as much leeway with new coach Todd Bowles at the helm. 


Report: Ryan Fitzpatrick favored to start for Jets


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/12/2015) New Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to win the starting job, reports Metro New York. The Jets acquired Fitzpatrick from the Texans for a conditional 2016 seventh-round draft pick.

As the roster currently stands, Fitzpatrick, 32, will have to beat out Geno Smith and Matt Simms. In 12 games with Houston last year, Fitzpatrick completed 63.1 percent of his passes for 2,483 yards and 17 touchdowns with eight interceptions.

“He's head and shoulders the best quarterback on this roster and he wasn't brought in to be the backup or be a mentor,” the source said. “He was brought in to compete and earn that starting job and he's expected to do that.”

Jets coach Todd Bowles hasn't committed to QB Geno Smith


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) There's a chance Geno Smith will enter a competition for the starting quarterback job with the Jets.

Speaking at the NFL combine, Jets coach Todd Bowles wouldn't commit to Smith being the team's starter in 2015, via the Palm Beach Post. Part of that has to do with the fact Bowles hasn't met with Smith since taking the head coaching job.

Bowles, via ESPN.com, added that "it's possible" for the Jets to add a veteran quarterback to the mix.

In two seasons, Smith has struggled as the Jets' starter. In 2014, Smith threw for 2,525 yards, 13 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. As a rookie in 2013, Smith threw 21 interceptions to 12 touchdowns.


Jets' Geno Smith doesn't know if he will start in 2015


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2015) Jets quarterback Geno Smith said Saturday he is unsure of his status with the team and has not received a definitive answer from new coach Todd Bowles on whether he will be the starter in 2015, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.

Smith, who threw for 2,525 yards with 13 touchdowns in 2014, also isn't sure if the Jets will try to draft a quarterback in the first round like Jamies Winston or Marcus Mariota, but he would welcome the challenge as more competition.


Former Jets QB coach Lee: Geno Smith's inconsistency 'killed us'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) David Lee has returned to his role as the Bills quarterbacks coach after spending the last two seasons as the Jets quarterbacks coach, where he spent a great deal of time tutoring Geno Smith

While Lee was complimentary of the progress Smith made late in the 2014 season, he didn't have any issues opening up about Smith's struggles as well.

“Rex and I talked about it. He had some inconsistency, and the up-and-down part is what killed us,” Lee told the Bills' official website. “He would get loose with the football. We played good enough defense to win over there both years, but his play, it’ll cost you and it cost us.

"But he also did some great things. The last five games this season he was the seventh-rated passer in the league. He had a perfect passer rating in his last game at Miami. The potential and ability is there.” 

Smith had a 97.9 passer rating over the Jets' final five games in 2014. However, he was benched in favor of Michael Vick for a stretch this season and finished 29th in the league with a passer rating of 77.5.
