Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comThere’s no question that Vick was brought in to provide a better safety net than Mark Sanchez or Matt Simms could. It was the absolute right decision for the Jets to bring in Vick to help provide better depth for a team that sorely needed it at almost every position on offense in 2013.
That said, in a perfect world the Jets want Geno to win the job and pulling the rug out from under him — before he takes snaps against the trainwreck that is the Raiders — seems like a very long shot to me.
It’s a bold prediction by Plax, but Geno Smith would have to have an atrocious training camp and preseason for him to be benched in favor of Vick before the start of the season.
