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.


New Jets regime mum on Geno Smith's future


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) New Jets coach Todd Bowles and general manager Mike Maccagnan had little to say about quarterback Geno Smith's future at a news conference Wednesday, reports Pro Football Talk. Bowles referred to Smith as "a great college quarterback" but didn't assess his performance as a pro or say whether Smith would be his 2015 starter.

Maccagnan, asked about the team's quarterback situation, said he doesn't "want to get too far ahead of ourselves." Smith is under contract through 2016, while Michael Vick is set to hit free agency. Smith accounted for 14 touchdowns and 16 turnovers this season.

The Jets could draft a quarterback at No. 6 overall.


Jets owner Woody Johnson: I've got confidence in Geno Smith


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2014) While quarterback Geno Smith's future with the Jets will depend on who the team hires as the new general manager and head coach, he at least received an endorsement Monday from owner Woody Johnson.

"I've got confidence in Geno," Johnson said, per ESPN. "I really do. He'll be good." 

Smith is coming off one of his finest performances as a pro, posting a perfect passer rating (158.3) in a 37-24 win Week 17 at Miami. He completed 20 of 25 passes for 358 yards and three touchdowns. 

However, Smith has had his struggles during his two-year NFL career. He is 11-18 as a starter and has just a career 57.5 percent completion rate. He also has more interceptions (34) than passing touchdowns (25).


Jets QB Geno Smith skips team meeting on Monday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2014) Just a day removed from throwing a perfect game and leading his team to a season-finale win over Miami, Jets quarterback Geno Smith skipped a team meeting just hours after the team parted ways with general manager John Idzik and coach Rex Ryan on Monday, reports Jason Cole of Bleacher Report. The reasoning for his absence was not made public.

Smith completed 20 of 25 passes for 358 yards and three touchdowns in a 37-24 victory over Miami, sending Ryan out as a winner. Earlier in the week, he indicated that a coaching change "could be good for us all," and that he sees himself as the starting quarterback for the Jets for a "long time." Smith, the 39th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, finished the season with 13 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions and 2,502 passing yards.


Jets quarterback Geno Smith has perfect QB rating vs. Dolphins


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith had his best game of his career help lead the Jets to a 37-24 victory over the Dolphins Sunday.

Smith finished the game with a career-high 335 passing yards and also threw three touchdown passes without an interception. Smith’s three touchdowns came from 8, 74 and 23 yards. It was the first time this season Smith was able to throw multiple touchdown passes in a game without throwing an interception. He also completed 20 of his 25 pass attempts.

Smith finished the season with 13 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions and 2,502 passing yards.


Jets QB Geno Smith: Coaching 'change could be good for us all'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith sounded like a man who knows the fate of his current head coach on Monday. When asked about dealing with coaching changes while at West Virginia, Smith told reporters that a "change could be good for us all," according to the New York Post.

Smith, the 39th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, has completed only 58.2 percent of his passes, compiling 2,167 yards through the air, with 10 touchdowns and 13 interceptions his sophomore season.

"It is all about what you make it," Smith said. "I think the toughest part about it is not being able to continue to play for the same coach the same guy that you learned to love, you invest so much in, and you believe [in] them. To reset and readjust is a tough thing to do, but we are professionals and we have to do it. A change could be good for us all, so if it happens, when it happens, then we will see."

Team owner Woody Johnson is reportedly interested in hiring former general manager Charley Casserly as a consultant, should the Jets choose to make a change in leadership. After reaching the AFC Championship in his first two seasons, Ryan is in the midst of his worst season as a head coach (3-12) and could be out the door along with general manager John Idzik following Sunday's season finale at Miami.


Jets QB Geno Smith held in check vs. Patriots


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith was held in check in his team's loss to the Patriots in Week 16.

Smith hooked up with Jeff Cumberland for a 20-yard touchdown strike in the second quarter. He completed 17 of 27 passes for 210 yards with one touchdown and one interception, registering a 83.9 quarterback rating. He was sacked twice and rushed for 9 yards on three carries.

Smith will finish the season on the road against the Dolphins.


Jets' Rex Ryan: 'I've been happy with Geno'


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(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 quarterback Geno Smith limits mistakes in win Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith avoided turning the ball over to help lead the Jets to a 16-11 victory against the Titans Sunday.

Smith completed 16 of his 28 passes for 179 yards and also threw one touchdown. Smith connected with fullback John Conner for a 9-yard touchdown pass. It was the first time Smith was able to throw a touchdown pass without throwing an interception in a game this season. Smith also rushed for 16 yards on four attempts.

The Jets host the Patriots Week 16.


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."

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."

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.
