Geno Smith will take the majority of reps at quarterback today, head coach Rex Ryan announced, according to SNY’s Ricky Recchia.
On Tuesday, Mark Sanchez took the most reps, and this move should not be considered a demotion for him, Ryan said.
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comThis is the first time that practices have been open to the press on multiple days in a week and this is the sort of rotation that we expect the Jets have been doing throughout most of the spring. This is just the first time that the press is getting to see it.
Eye witnesses said that Smith’s passes looked nice yesterday, but that he needed time in the pocket and that his pre-snap reads, hot routes, and blitz pickups needs some help. We’ll see how things progress from here, but today will be a good indicator of whether or not he should see more first team reps as the battle heats up.
