Geno Smith: Now it’s about perfecting the offense

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.

    I never liked the idea of playing Geno last year. I thought if Sanchez could stay healthy that he should play out his final year and let Geno learn from Sanchez’s mistakes. Instead we saw what Geno did last year and now there is pressure on him to perform. Wish the best of luck to Gen0.

    …ya know the part of the circus when the clowns up in the clown car piled up high; yeah, the jets offense is like that.

    I would make a Geno joke but he DID manage to not screw up in Week 17 against Miami allowing the Chargers to make the playoffs. So thanks for that Geno.

    Geno Smith is as bad as Mark Sanchez. Genomics a bust. Michael Vick will start more games this season as the Jets QB than will Geno Smith. Geno Smith is a bust.

    Perfecting the offense? Perfecting??? Hey Gino, how about getting it from nightmarishly horrible to plain old pathetic. That actually would be a step in the right direction.
    Geez has this guy even looked at a game tape from last season?

    Looks like the Jets are on th dreaded NFL QB merry go round — Looking, drafting, playing, evaluating, realizing he isn’t good enough, looking, drafting, playing, evaluating, realizing he isn’t good enough, looking, drafting…

    No excuses this year. Last season, he was a rook playing on a team with a new offense. Not to mention his top targets all got injured at one point and he was basically throwing to practice squad players. We’ll find out really quickly if Geno is a NFL caliber qb.

    The words… Geno Smith and perfection should never be used in the same sentence…

    Can’t wait to see the Jets offense with Geno at the helm. He could only have improved surely, because he was horrible last season.

    Speaking of second round busts

    The last word I think about when I think of Geno Smith and Mike Vick is perfect.

    You gotta know exactly who on the other team your throwing too.

  13. corkspop says: Jun 15, 2014 1:04 PM

    Vick starts more than half the games this season. Maybe all of them.

    There you go folks. He says he knows the offense. Rex has developed coloring books to help Geno understand the offense a little more. And this year he will color in between the lines.

    OK…So can anyone name 1 other team in the NFL…that Geno would be starting QB for?

    I cannot.

    Seahawks homer here. Sherman and Maxwell are some awesome corners. But, I’m excited to watch Revis and Browner tandem. They have the potential to be the best corners in the nfl. If they are,, That’ll run the division geno

    Geno might want to look at his QB rating from last year, and shoot for “not embarrassing”.

  18. chazatlas says: Jun 15, 2014 9:29 PM

    Taj Boyd will be the starting QB before the end of the season.

    Leading a team to 8 & 8, when it easily could have been 3 & 13 is not a Bust. It is a team being led back to respectability by a rookie QB. Give the guy a break! When he was good, he was clutch. When he was bad, he was awful. Just like most rookies without the .500 record. Now if he is a perennial 8 & 8 guy for 3-4 consecutive years. And get a Franchise, Max Dollar contract deal. It’s time to be real scared. You hear me Dallas Cowboys and Tony Romo?!

    This team is atrocious…but hats off to being half interesting to follow the QB saga. Hoping for either “great” or “$hit”. Leaning toward the latter. Hard.

    Thank you for your input Mrs. Sanchez.

    “Geno Smith is as bad as Mark Sanchez.”

    You know, I’d really hate two trips to the AFC Championship.

    Please stop WISHING for MV to be the starter! It isn’t going to happen. He’s worse than Geno!
