Now that the Jets, Geno Smith and Michael Vick seem to have settled on the proper way to frame this year’s quarterback competition, the team can move onto putting together an offense that’s not as frightful as the one that took the field during the 2013 season.
According to Smith, a year of experience should be a big factor in getting that kind of offense on the field. Smith said that he and the team’s receivers have been developing more chemistry this offseason than they did last year when Smith was a rookie trying to learn the offensive scheme.
“There’s no comparison,” Smith said, via the New York Post. “Last year I was a rookie. I was learning. I’m still learning, but I was learning the offense. I know the offense. Now, it’s about perfecting it. There’s really no comparison. It’s completely night and day.”
Perfection may be a bridge too far for the Jets offense, but their offseason additions provide the framework for a noticeable improvement on that side of the ball. It’s left Smith feeling like the Jets are “jelling really like a team that’s going some places in the future” and growth from Smith in his second season would give them a leader to assure they’re going to good places.
