Geno Smith gets bulk of first-team reps


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) As expected, the Jets gave quarterback Geno Smith the bulk of the first-team reps Thursday. Smith got 13 and Michael Vick got four, reports the New York Post.

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
(4/29/2014) Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said quarterback Geno Smith will take the first reps at OTAs, ahead of Michael Vick, reports the New York Daily News. Mornhinweg further said that Smith will get a few more reps than Vick.

"We brought Mike in to compete, to push Geno and to make Geno the very best he can make him," Mornhinweg said.


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."


Ryan proud of Geno Smith, not sure on Mark Sanchez status


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/4/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan said nothing has changed with the future of quarterback Mark Sanchez coming back to the team in 2014, reports the Newark Star-Ledger . He also is excited about the future for Geno Smith.

"We'll just let that play out and see what happens," Ryan said about Sanchez. "But it's nothing I'm going to make a comment on."

Sanchez is in the last year of his contract with the Jets and is set to make $9 million with a $2 million signing bonus later this month if he's still on the team. Because of his $13.1 million cap charge for 2014, he is expected to be cut.

As for Smith, Ryan had nothing but praise for the second-year passer.

"I really like where he left off," he said. "The last month of the season was probably his best. I know he had some rocky spots, to say the least. And so did we as a team. But to finish where he did, I think he was the second-highest rated quarterback at the end of the season. Very few turnovers. he ran the ball effectively as well. So he used his legs, used his arms, cut down on turnovers. I think if he could play that way, we're going to be tough to beat."


Two Mark Sanchez scenarios floated


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) In the unlikely event the Jets want to keep quarterback Mark Sanchez, there are two scenarios that could unfold, reports ESPN.com. Both involve the Jets asking Sanchez to take a big pay cut.

If they try to cut his base salary from $9 million to $1 million, "it would be insulting, a strong indication he'd have no chance to unseat [Geno Smith]," the report said. If the Jets offer $3 million to $5 million with incentives, "it would show they consider him a viable starting option."


Jets not ruling out sequel to Mark Sanchez-Geno Smith battle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) Jets general manager John Idzik said he wouldn't mind seeing Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith battle for the starting quarterback job again this summer, reports the New York Post. The expectation was Sanchez would be released, but Idzik maintained he's still a starting-caliber NFL quarterback.

Sanchez is "making very good progress" on his shoulder rehab, Idzik added. If the Jets are serious about keeping Sanchez, they'd likely ask him to redo his contract.


Geno Smith working out with Weinke


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith plans to work out this offseason with former NFL quarterback Chris Weinke, reports ESPN.

Weinke worked out with Smith last season at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., leading up to the NFL scouting combine. The report says Smith has been working with Weinke to stay sharp and fine-tuning his throwing mechanics. 


Jets should have options at quarterback


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/12/2014) The Jets are expected to be in the market for a quarterback to compete with Geno Smith this season, and ESPN speculates Michael Vick, Matt Schaub and Kirk Cousins are three potential veteran options.

For Vick, who is a free agent, there is a familiarity with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg's system when the two were in Philadelphia. Schaub could be cut or traded by the Texans, and he might need a change of scenery after last year's disaster. And Cousins could be someone the Jets target via trade as a young veteran with upside.

Smith is still expected to be the starter this year, but a lot will depend on who is brought in for competition.


Geno Smith to get help, competition this offseason


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/10/2014) The Jets plan to address two areas of need this offseason on offense with receiver and quarterback, reports NFL.com. Receiver is a must, and they also want to bring in competition for quarterback Geno Smith.

The report says it won't be a surprise if the Jets take the best available wide receiver off the board with the 18th overall selection in the NFL Draft. They could also go hard after free agent Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker, who's coming off a career year.

Finding competition for Smith is also a priority, whether that be through the draft or locating a veteran in free agency. Smith is still expected to enter 2014 as the starter, but he needs to improve -- and adding receiver help will definitely help his chances of that happening.


Jets GM works with Geno Smith on offseason incidents


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2014) Jets general manager John Idzik said he has spoken with quarterback Geno Smith about handling the social side of the NFL after two regrettable offseason incidents.

Smith was involved in a verbal altercation with a Virgin America flight attendant after refusing to shut off his cell phone before takeoff, though the airline was the one that issued an apology. Lewd photos of Smith were previously posted on Instagram by an Atlanta woman who claimed to have had an affair with him.

"When you're a quarterback in the NFL and you're a quarterback for a franchise in a big market such as New York, all eyes are on you 24/7," Idzziki told ESPN. "I think Geno is experiencing this first-hand. Obviously, I've kept in close contact with him. This is part of learning how to deal with these things.

"We've addressed them, he's addressed them, so [I have] no real concerns that way. It's just how to deal with your celebrity and the visibility that goes along with that position."


Rex Ryan refuses to commit to Geno Smith as starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan has refused to make the same commitment to soon-to-be second-year quarterback Geno Smith that he did in the 2013 offseason to demoted Mark Sanchez.

Ryan told the media last year that Sanchez would get the first preseason snap, but has not uttered the same promise about Smith. "We'll see who's on the roster before we make that decision," he told the New York Daily News.

Smith proved inconsistent in his first year. He completed 56 percent of his passes for a Jets rookie-record 3,046 yards, but managed just 12 touchowns and 21 interceptions. He suffered through a stretch in which he tossed just one scoring pass and 11 picks.


Geno Smith OK after apology from airline


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith said he has accepted an apology from Virgin Airlines for an incident last week that resulted in him being removed from a flight from Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale - of course, before it took off. He added that he is looking forward to flying again with the airline.
