Jets HC Rex Ryan made it clear Tuesday afternoon he still believes Geno Smith and is not thinking of replacing him with Michael Vick, despite Smith’s five turnovers through three games this season.
”I think everybody’s behind Geno,” Ryan said in a conference call with reporters. “He’s our quarterback and our football team believes in him, so that’s it.”
Smith had a terrible outing Monday night in a 27-19 loss to the Bears and has five turnovers through three games this season. Still, Ryan is sticking with his second-year signal-caller. Ryan added he believes Smith will improve and that he's seen him improve since last season. Smith shows flashes but is constantly hurt by turnovers and is a very risky option if your league gives negative points for turnovers.
