On Friday, Jets quarterback Geno Smith made headlines by giving himself an F for his first NFL practice. On Saturday, he opted not to continue that specific story line.
“I’ll leave the grading to the coaches, but I think today was another good day,” Smith told reporters, via a transcript distributed by the team. “It got better again today, so that’s something that I just continue to do daily, I try to improve, even if it’s just in the smallest amount. I think I did that today.”
Smith offered some specifics regarding how he improved from Friday to Saturday.
“I was able to get in and out of the huddle a lot smoother than yesterday,” he said. “Overall, I think as an offense we had some good moments and some not so good moments. But it’s still a work in progress. Every single one of us is out there learning, just trying to better ourselves and just trying to make the team.”
Oh, he’ll make the team. The question is whether he’ll make it to the top of the depth chart.
Actually, the question is when he’ll make it to the top of the depth chart, and which other quarterbacks on the roster will be dumped once he does.
