Geno Smith is back as the Jets’ starting quarterback.
The Jets announced this morning that Smith, not Michael Vick, will start on Monday night against the Dolphins.
Jets coach Rex Ryan met with both Smith and Vick this morning and informed them that he has made the switch. Vick had a disastrous game against the Bills on Monday night, and Smith was slightly better after Vick was benched, so that may have been what made Ryan make the decision.
It’s also possible that the decision wasn’t up to Ryan. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported that Ryan preferred Vick — but that the decision might be taken from Ryan by G.M. John Idzik and owner Woody Johnson.
Regardless, the Jets are going nowhere this season. And the quarterback to lead them in the future probably isn’t on the roster right now.
