Draft Scout Geno Smith News
10/19/16 - QB Geno Smith was named as the starter over struggling Ryan Fitzpatrick for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens. Smith will make his first start since Dec. 28, 2014 for the Jets, who are 1-5 and on a four-game losing streak. "Geno's our starter. Ryan's the No. 2," Jets coach Todd Bowles said Wednesday. "I felt like it was time for a change. This was strictly my call." Bowles initially said Fitzpatrick would retain his starting position after being benched in favor of Smith in the fourth quarter of the embarrassing 28-3 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Monday night.
10/19/16 - QB Geno Smith gets his fourth chance as the Jets' starting quarterback following Ryan Fitzpatrick's implosion. There is almost nothing Smith can do to convince the Jets he is the answer for 2017, but he can audition for the other 31 teams and provide proof he has grown up enough, as a player and a leader, to start for someone else. All eyes will be upon Smith, who has been easily flustered in three-plus NFL seasons.
10/18/16 - QB Geno Smith entered in the fourth quarter Monday night, but coach Todd Bowles said Ryan Fitzpatrick would remain the team's starter. Smith completed four of six passes for 31 yards and was intercepted once.
"As a competitor, I want to play at all times," he said. "I think you guys know that. Can't reiterate that enough."
09/04/16 - QB Geno Smith will be the Jets' No. 2 quarterback. Smith never had a chance to unseat starter Ryan Fitzpatrick and his backup job appeared as if it might be in danger when second-year QB Bryce Petty played well in exhibition play. But Smith, who has made 29 starts for the Jets since 2013, provides the experience that Petty, who has yet to play in a regular season game, lacks.
08/21/16 - QB Geno Smith helped put the Jets in a 14-2 hole in the first half, when his three series ended with a three-and-out, an interception and a turnover on downs. The Redskins scored their touchdowns immediately after the three-and-out and the pick, which was a Smith special in which he inexplicably threw into triple coverage.
