Geno Working Out Down at IMG Academy

Geno Smith prepared for the NFL scouting combine by working out with quarterback guru Chris Weinke at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. A year later, Smith is taking the same approach to his offseason. 
 
 
Smith
The New York Jets' quarterback was seen Monday at IMG, working in a private session with Weinke, IMG's director of football operations. You probably remember Weinke as the former Heisman Trophy winner from Florida State. Smith has been working with Weinke in recent days, trying to stay sharp and fine-tuning his throwing mechanics. Weinke also is tutoring Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater, one of the top prospects in the upcoming draft. 
 
If you're a Jets fan, it's always encouraging to hear your quarterback is working on his own in an effort to improve. Smith "has come a million miles" from the start of his rookie season, Rex Ryan said recently, but it's obvious that he still has a ways to go. The Jets' offseason program doesn't begin until early April, so Smith is taking a proactive approach as he prepares for his second season. 
 
At least he's not in New Jersey, stuck inside because of the winter weather. 
 
A year ago, Smith went into the combine thinking he had a chance to be the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. In an interview at IMG last February, he told USA Today, "I feel like I am the best" quarterback in the draft "and [given] what I've done up until this point, I do have a case for being the No. 1 overall pick." 
 
Obviously, it didn't turn out that way. Smith fell to 39th, but he ended up starting every game. Now he waits as the Jets embark on an offseason in which they're likely to add a quarterback.
 
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
 
 
Say what you will about him, but it's always good to see players putting in work on their own.  Working out down at IMG is a significant difference between the cupcake and tickle party that was Jets' West. It's at least an encouraging sign.

Happy he's set on getting better, happy the franchise is working hard on improving this offseason, and happy our young players have so much potential.

Just wish I knew what stephen hill was doing rite now.

No idea but if I question that then I won't be as happy with him working out there anymore.

IMG Academy is extremely legit, I didn't know until today that Weinke and Madden took over football operations a couple of years back. I know Weinke's worked with Cam, Josh Freeman and most recently Teddy Bridgewater, but most importantly it just shows Geno is serious about getting better.  Just because he was a Heisman winner who didn't translate to the NFL, doesn't mean he can't be a good coach.  Lombardi was a decent lineman at Fordham, that didn't stop him from being one of the best ever.

He went back to the organization and Guru that got him drafted 39, and had the projected #1 pick drop the farthest of any QB projected to be the #1 pick?

Somehow, I doubt Teddy, Johnny, or Blake will be headed to IMG and Weinke.

Does IMG compensate Smith the 4 million dollars he lost from dropping from #1 to #39?

Teddy is currently training with Weinke at IMG as we speak. Cam, who went #1 overall and is one of the more promising young QBs in the league, went to IMG and trained with Weinke.

Interesting. Cam went #1, Teddy will go top 5 and possibly #1, and Geno dropped like my Flounder sinker I used at Captree. Hmmm..wonder why?

Chad Pennington would probably be a good coach.  Physically, as a player, he was garbage. But he knew how to play the position.

Because he wasn't as good as Cam Newton was in 2011 or the prospects currently on the board in 2013.  Also, Geno did not drop anywhere. The consensus rankings were not by the general managers of the NFL, they were done by internet scouts and draftniks who were the same people who had Matt Barkley and Ryan Nassib going in the top 10 for the majority of the year. By and large, players get picked where their value is to teams in the NFL.

I actually stated on this forum that someday, CHAD will be head coach of the JETS. People's heads exploded when I said it.

Those same "draftniks" had Cam going #1, he did, they had Luck going #1 he did, they had Geno going #1, he dropped like a Fluke sinker in the Great Peconic bay. Hmmm..........

I don't understand why he'd be training inside of a financial institution. Rex's incompetence strikes again.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.
