Rex: Geno Is Head & Shoulders Above Last Year

Geno Smith, Michael Vick

The Jets haven’t even practiced yet, but Rex Ryan immediately praised Geno Smith.

I think Geno, really, I think he’s head and shoulders above where he was last year, I don’t think there is any doubt about that.  Even just from the fundamental part of the game, David Lee is, I think as good a fundamental teacher as there is in the game, I think Geno has really picked up Marty’s (Mornhinweg) system, and our system.  And the strides that he made late in the year, and you guys saw it too in the minicamps.  I know I’m not just saying it, you guys see it. So I think he is way ahead of where he was last year, I know his confidence level, how comfortable he is with this system, I think goes a long way.

Rex who always seems to be around when big statements are made also added this one.

I don’t know if we have had a better quarterback situation since I have been the head coach here.

Although, upon further review, that probably isn’t that big of a statement when you considered all the years that Mark Brunnel was the backup QB under Rex and behind Mark Sanchez. Rex wouldn’t officially commit to a timeline for naming a starting QB.

Geno Smith says he plans on continuing to work hard and that if he stays healthy he hopes to be the starter. Geno did chime in on the benefits of competing with Michael Vick.

I expect it to help a lot. Mike is a guy who has proven himself in this league. He’s a guy that can obviously get it done and for me to go up against a guy like that means a lot. To be able to compete with him and learn from him is definitely going to help me out.

Michael Vick wouldn’t comment on his desire to be the starting QB. He stressed that having two QB’s is important, “I think what we have to be able to compete and show our coaches that they can depend on both of us. ”

Yup. It is completely impossible that Geno improved.

If there's one area where Rex has earned our absolute trust, it's when he's talking about how much his quarterback has improved every July.

This post could have written itself it's so true, but LOL anyway.

I get the point, but I don't really agree.

 

I think even if Geno doesn't improve at all, and his WRs stay healthy, he'll be noticeably better.  I think if he improves as well, the difference will be significant.

I don't doubt Geno is- but if Winters and Aboushi are our starting guards it's not going to matter all that much.

I concur. If Geno has improved, my deductive reasoning tells me that he will play better. On the other hand, if he has not improved, he will probably not play better.

Actually, you don't concur.  EY said that if Geno doesn't improve he will still play better because...weapnz.

Whatever, I believe it. Geno seems like a fairly intelligent kid and that goes a long way towards improving. Tavon Austin is talented as all hell, but is dumber than a brick and had trouble contributing because he couldn't read the play book. Geno's got the talent and if he can learn the game and position better, I have zero doubt he'll be much improved this season.

Why should he? The entire organization acted like they DID show results last season and he was rewarded for 8-8 with a new contract. I'm sure they are still sore for all the patting each other on the back.

Last season, there were times I wished Sanchez wasn't hurt. And I HATE Sanchez.

This is just like predicting SuperBowl victories. Exactly the same. No different. F'ing Rex, man.

Jet fans have seen enough of bad QB play the last 40 or so years- we do not want to hear it Rex- let Geno show it on the field.

I think Geno is okay, as far as the mental part of the game. Not sure how much touch he has. He can fire it up the seam, and get distance on his passes. It is those in between ones that worry me. Can he stick it into a small space, can he throw that pass that breaks a closely covered guy into the open? How are his screen and swing passes. I don't recall him doing those that well last year. I did not see the last 4 games tho. I guess I missed the good part.

in last few years we may have won more games by ONLY running and throwing high% passes to RBs behind line of scimmage. If no score or FG, then punt and let our Defense take over. 

 

I am serious guys....

Thing is, since I never watched him in college, I don't know how much of that is the limit of his ability and how much of it is him thinking about too many things at once. Didn't they say yesterday that every dropback he was still counting his own steps in his head because it wasn't close to second nature yet? That's pretty bad, but it's also a handicap that doesn't continue forever.
