(12/15/2014) While Jets quarterback Geno Smith has been benched because of his poor play during his second season, coach Rex Ryan told reporters Monday he has been pleased with Smith, reports Newsday.

"I've been happy with Geno," Ryan said.

Smith had his best performance of the season Sunday at Tennessee. The game marked the first time this season Smith was able to throw a touchdown pass without throwing an interception in a game. The Jets host the Patriots Sunday.

Jets' Geno Smith throws touchdown pass in loss Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith was able to throw a touchdown pass, but it was not enough to defeat the Vikings Sunday.

Smith threw a pick-six on his first pass attempt of the game, but was able to recover to complete 18 of his 29 pass attempts for 254 yards. Smith also rushed for 33 yards on six attempts.

The 29 pass attempts were more than double what Smith attempted Week 13 against the Dolphins when he threw 13 passes. Smith has yet to throw multiple touchdown passes in a game this season without an interception.

The Jets will play at Tennessee Week 15.


Rex Ryan confirms Geno Smith will start again Week 14


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan said quarterback Geno Smith will start Sunday at Minnesota, reports the Associated Press. Smith only dropped back to pass 15 times in Monday's loss to the Dolphins. He went 7 of 13 for 65 yards, his last pass getting intercepted.

Asked if he learned anything from Smith's performance against Miami, Ryan replied: "No, because he only threw it 13 times. ... I'm just kidding."

Smith replaced Michael Vick in the third quarter of the Week 12 loss to Buffalo.


Jets don't let Geno Smith throw much on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith dropped back to pass 15 times in Monday's 16-13 home loss to the Dolphins. He was 4 of 8 for 42 yards until New York had to throw, trailing by a field goal with under two minutes left.

Smith forced his final pass to tight end Jeff Cumberland. It bounced off linebacker Jelani Jenkins into the arms of safety Reshad Jones. Smith finished 7 of 13 for 65 yards with one interception, and he ran four times for 19 yards.

The Jets visit Minnesota in Week 14, and it remains to be seen whether New York will stick with Smith or go back to Michael Vick.


Ryan: Geno Smith to stay behind center the rest of the year


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) Rex Ryan has confirmed what has been suspected - that Geno Smith will remain the starting quarterback for the Jets the rest of the season.

"I would anticipate that," Ryan told ESPN.

Smith is back on the job after Michael Vick took it over for a stint. The Jets are hoping the former can show an ability that would allow him to establish himself as the team's franchise quarterback.


Report: Jets QB change not fully supported by coaches, players


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Although Jets coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday that "everybody's on board" with the decision to replace Michael Vick with Geno Smith at quarterback, it appears that might not be totally true, according to the New York Daily News.

Sources told the Daily News offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg was among the majority of people in the organization, including players, who wanted Vick to remain the starting quarterback. Ryan also preferred to continue to start Vick, who was benched during a 38-3 loss Monday against the Bills.

However, Ryan made the decision to change starting quarterbacks because he wants to avoid conflict with his bosses -- owner Woody Johnson and general manager John Idzik. Ryan wants to take the high road before looking for his next job, sources told the Daily News.

"I think the best thing for this team right now is to play Geno Smith," Ryan said Wednesday. "Does he give you a good chance to win? Or a chance to win? I believe he does give us a chance to win."


Jets make the change at QB -- Smith will replace Vick as starter


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) Despite speculation Michael Vick would start Week 13 against the Dolphins, Jets coach Rex Ryan informed his quarterbacks Wednesday morning Geno Smith would be returning to the starting role Monday. 

Vick, who entered the starting lineup Week 9 against the Chiefs, was replaced by Smith in the third quarter of Monday's game against the Bills. Smith will be facing a Dolphins defense yielding 220.6 passing yards per game, which is the eighth-lowest total in the NFL. The Dolphins have allowed 20 passing touchdowns through 11 games.


Report: Vick would likely be Rex Ryan's choice to start Week 13


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) While Jets coach Rex Ryan refrained from naming a starting quarterback following Monday's loss against the Bills, Michael Vick is expected to start Week 13 against the Dolphins, if his calf is fine and Ryan is allowed to make the decision, a source told the New York Daily News.

Vick was replaced late in the third quarter by Geno Smith during a 38-3 loss Week 12. Vick said he was kicked in the calf Monday, but he could have returned. Ryan said he "wanted to give Geno a chance."

Vick completed 7 of 19 passes for 76 yards, no touchdowns and one interception before being replaced by Smith, who completed 10 of 12 passes for 89 yards.

"I want to see how they look," Ryan said after the game. "Sometimes you have a feel and a sense of it on the field. When you watch the tape, maybe you see a differently. So we’ll take a look at it and do what we think is best."


Jets QB Geno Smith mops up Week 12


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith relieved Michael Vick in the second half of Monday's 38-3 loss to the Bills. Smith completed 10 of 12 throws for 89 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions.

Jets undecided about Week 13 quarterback


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan said he hasn't decided whether Michael Vick or Geno Smith will start at quarterback on Monday Night Football in Week 13 against Miami. "We'll address that later," he said. "I don't know yet."

Ryan benched Vick for Smith in the third quarter of the 38-3 loss to the Bills.


Michael Vick benched after MNF disaster


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) With 4:57 left in the third quarter Monday, Jets coach Rex Ryan had seen enough. He benched quarterback Michael Vick for Geno Smith after Vick was intercepted by Bills safety Duke Williams.

It was Vick's only interception, but the Bills could have had at least three other picks. Vick completed 7 of 19 throws for 76 yards (4.0 ypa), ran twice for 4 yards and absorbed five sacks. He had a chance for a 69-yard touchdown right before halftime, but his throw to Eric Decker was a bit long and Decker couldn't bring it in.

Smith saw his first action since he was benched Week 8, also against the Bills.


Chris Ivory, Chris Johnson among Jets cleared to play


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) All the Jets who were probable on the injury report are active for Monday's game against the Bills in Detroit.

The list includes running backs Chris Ivory (shoulder) and Chris Johnson (knee), guard Oday Aboushi (shoulder), linebacker Antwan Barnes (knee), guard Willie Colon (knee), wideout T.J. Graham (neck), linebacker David Harris (shoulder), safety Jaiquawn Jarrett (calf), center Nick Mangold (shoulder), linebacker Trevor Reilly (knee), receiver Greg Salas (wrist), cornerback Darrin Walls (calf) and quarterback Geno Smith (right shoulder).


Probables all cleared by Jets for Week 10 game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) All the Jets probables have received the thumbs-up for action Sunday against Pittsburgh, including quarterbacks Michael Vick (foot) and Geno Smith (shoulder). Among the others are offensive linemen Oday Aboushi (shoulder), Willie Colon (knee), Breno Giacomini (illness) and Nick Mangold (shoulder), linebacker David Harris (shoulder), wide receiver Percy Harvin (heel) and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson (illness).


Report: Jets coaches might have hindered Geno Smith's development


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) While the Jets continue to evaluate whether or not Geno Smith is a franchise quarterback, there is a fear the coaches might have hindered Smith's development by dictating his reads, NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport said during an interview Sunday morning with NFL Network.

"Usually a quarterback is able to drop back, go through his reads then deliver the ball. I am told that Geno Smith was informed of his reads, told, 'You need to throw the ball here on certain plays,'" Rapoport said. "The most egregious example came on an interception on a pass (in Week 8) intended for Percy Harvin that Stephon Gilmore, the Bills corner, picked off. Smith was told; 'This is where you need to throw the ball.' And obviously, for a quarterback who is now taking a breather last game and this game, may have hurt his development a little bit."

Michael Vick is making his second straight start Sunday against the Steelers since Smith was benched in Week 8 after throwing three interceptions. Smith was inactive last week due to a shoulder injury.


Nine injured Jets offensive players probable for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Nine offensive players for the Jets have been deemed probable for the Sunday game against Pittsburgh with minor injuries, including linemen Oday Aboushi (shoulder), Willie Colon (knee), Breno Giacomini (illness) and Nick Mangold (shoulder).

The other offensive probables are wide receivers Greg Salas (wrist) and Percy Harvin (heel), running back Chris Johnson (ankle) and quarterbacks Michael Vick (foot) and Geno Smith (shoulder).


Jets' Ryan: Geno Smith has approached demotion 'right way'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan is pleased with how quarterback Geno Smith has handled his demotion from the starting quarterback role, according to Newsday.

"I think he has prepared well. I guess time will tell once he gets an opportunity to play again," Ryan said. "I don't think any player likes it. They shouldn't like it. But, I think he approached it the right way."

Smith was benched in favor of Michael Vick heading into Week 9 against the Chiefs. Vick will be under center again Week 10 against the Steelers, and Ryan gave no indication about when Smith might return to the starting role.

"I am not really looking past this game," Ryan said Monday. "So if that happens, then it happens. Right now we are going with Mike to play against Pittsburgh, and that's as far as I have thought about it."


Jets QB Michael Vick named Week 10 starter following Week 9 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Jets quarterback Michael Vick was able to finish out Sunday's 24-10 loss at Kansas City despite briefly leaving in the fourth quarter due to a head injury. Vick was hurt on a 4th-and-goal play early in the fourth quarter, as he was slammed to the turf on an incomplete pass.

Vick laid on the ground for a few moments before rising to his feet. Although, he appeared wobbly walking off the field and needed the help of the trainers to make it to the sideline. Vick was evaluated on the bench for a few minutes before walking to the locker room. With Geno Smith (shoulder) inactive, Vick was replaced by Matt Simms.

However, after missing just one series, Vick surprisingly made his return to the game. Prior to getting hurt, he was 12 of 14 for 92 yards and one touchdown -- a 3-yard pass to Eric Decker late in the second quarter. He also rushed for 12 yards on three carries. He finished the game 21 of 28 for 196 yards, while rushing for 18 yards on four carries.

The Jets are back in action Week 10 vs. Pittsburgh. Coach Rex Ryan said after Sunday's loss that Vick will start next week.

"As long as he's healthy, we'll go with Mike," Ryan said.


Geno Smith among Jets players inactive Week 9


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith was listed as inactive Sunday against the Chiefs due to a shoulder injury. Smith was going to be the backup quarterback to Michael Vick, if he was active.

The other Jets inactives for Week 9 were Walt Powell, Darrin Walls, IK Enemkpali, Dakota Dozier, Wesley Johnson and T.J. Barnes.


Report: Geno Smith might be back as Jets starting QB in Week 10


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith's benching might not last very long. The beleaguered second-year quarterback could return to the starting quarterback role as soon as Week 10 against the Steelers because the team doesn't view Michael Vick -- who is starting Sunday against the Chiefs -- as the long-term solution at quarterback, team sources told NFL.com.

Smith might be inactive Sunday against Kansas City due to a shoulder injury he suffered Week 8. If that happens, Matt Simms will be the team's backup quarterback.


13 of 15 Jets players on injury report ruled probable for Week 9


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Jets QB Geno Smith (shoulder) able to throw Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith (shoulder) resumed throwing Thursday after not doing so in practice Wednesday, according to ESPN. Though, it's still uncertain if Smith will be able to serve as the backup quarterback Week 9 against the Chiefs.

Geno Smith doesn't throw Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith, now relegated to backup duties, did not throw during the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, reports the New York Daily News. Smith hurt his shoulder making a tackle following his third and final interception Sunday against the Bills.

New York is going with Michael Vick in Week 9 at Kansas City.


Jets GM unsure if team has franchise quarterback on roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith said following his demotion Monday the he "without a doubt" can be a franchise quarterback in the NFL, according to Newsday. Jets owner Woody Johnson said something similar in early October after Smith got off to a rocky start this season.

It seems, however, that general manager John Idzik might not have the same opinion. Asked during an interview with SNY that aired Tuesday, if he believes there is a franchise quarterback on the Jets roster, Idzik said: "Don't know that. Don't know that. That's still to be determined. You don't want to try to answer that question too prematurely."

In a 38-minute press conference with the media Monday, Idzik didn't provide many details about Smith's future with the team. He took a similar approach during the interview with SNY.

"We will continue with the development curve and we will continue searching," Idzik said. "We'll continue to try to enhance that position in any way we can."

Michael Vick is set to start at quarterback for the Jets in Week 9 against the Chiefs.


Jets' Rex Ryan: QB Geno Smith's shoulder not at '100 percent'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan told reporters on Monday that Geno Smith's shoulder injury isn't expected to be serious moving forward. However, he admitted that Smith isn't 100 percent healthy and if he's not available to backup Michael Vick against the Chiefs in Week 9, then the team will likely promote Matt Simms from the practice squad to serve as the No. 2 quarterback, according to the New York Daily News.

The recently benched quarterback injured his shoulder while making a tackle on his third interception of the afternoon against the Bills in Week 8. He completed only 2 of 8 pass attempts for 5 yards with no touchdowns and three interceptions before he was replaced by Vick after four drives.
