The Jets quarterback competition may not be as competitive as they were hoping.
While nothing would be more convenient than for rookie Geno Smith to walk in the door and make the job his own, that apparently hasn’t happened so far.
According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, the second-rounder “hasn’t blown anybody away, the way Russell Wilson did last season when he walked into the Seahawks’ facility.”
Without Smith making an immediate impact, the Jets might have little choice than roll Mark Sanchez out there again for the opener against the Buccaneers.
And while that might not inspire confidence, it would at least give Smith the benefit of time to learn (or simply to avoid games with an offense that lacks firepower, which would make it harder for him to look good).
