Jeane Coakley caught up with Geno Smith for a 1-on-1 yesterday (at a charity bowling event) – they talk about his offseason preparation, working with Michael Vick, having Tajh Boyd in the QB room, the QB competition, and his bowling skills.
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comGeno is the assumptive season starter, but nothing will be given to him with Vick over his shoulder.
One of the Jets biggest problems in 2013 was their lack of solid depth at the quarterback position. While it was good to get Geno 16 games worth of experience and see the growth, the team is much better off than they were a year ago. The Jets now have two viable starting options in Smith and Vick from which they can chose the best player along with a potential long-term backup in Tajh Boyd. Given time and correction to his game, Boyd looks like a player who in a year or two could become the team’s spot starter who can manage a game while igniting the occasional spark.
