Geno Smith, Trent Richardson among players I still believe in
We live in a "What have you done for me lately?" world. Maybe that's a mistake.
Some young players need time to grow. Some experienced players can have a down year and bounce back. Some old players shouldn't be kicked to the curb quite yet. And some injury-riddled players cannot be forgotten.
It's a good thing I'm such a positive person.
Here are nine players I still believe in:
5) Geno Smith, QB, New York Jets
It feels weird including a second-year QB on an "I still believe" list, but given Geno's yo-yo neophyte campaign, the Jets' signing of Michael Vick and the overall scrutiny that comes with quarterbacking in New York, I feel compelled to do so.
Take a second. Think about the running backs, receivers and tight ends on last year's Jets. Rank that group against the corresponding factions fielded by the rest of the league.
You can't blame Geno Smith.
This offseason, the Jets added receiver Eric Decker and running back Chris Johnson in free agency, while spending a second-round draft pick on tight end Jace Amaro. This definitely helps. And the game should slow down for Geno in Year 2.
I just hope Gang Green doesn't foul this up by starting Vick. The 2014 season should be about developing Geno Smith as their quarterback of the present and future.
