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 announce the acquisition of veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) The Jets announced the acquisition of veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick on Wednesday, per the team's official website. New York will receive Fitzpatrick in exchange for a late conditional draft pick to the Texans.

Fitzpatrick, 32, has ties to Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey. He played under Gailey for three seasons with the Bills (2010-2012). He went 16-29 as a starter with 71 touchdowns and 67 turnovers under Gailey in Buffalo.

The 11-year veteran completed 60.2 percent of his passes, registering 2,483 yards with 17 touchdowns and eight interceptions last season. He will compete with Geno Smith for the starting job.

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.


New Jets regime mum on Geno Smith's future


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(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.

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.

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 | Senior Analyst
(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.
