New York Jets Wise Not to Commit to Geno Smith
When striving for success in professional sports, it is vital for athletes to never be satisfied. In football this is especially true at the quarterback position. These individuals are key to everyone else around them. Even Peyton Manning and Tom Brady never take their jobs for granted, by working hard every day. Therefore, New York Jets‘ signal caller Geno Smith needs to show improvement heading into next season. General manager John Idzik refused to name 2014’s starter at the team’s recent year-end press conference. He also said that New York will look into options including this year’s Draft.
Smith had a roller coaster rookie campaign, showing moments of solid play, but also looked erratic for large periods of time. Making an evaluation became even more difficult. The young quarterback had four passing touchdowns and two interceptions their last four games. His mobility opens up more plays on offense.
Last year saw him start after competitor Mark Sanchez went down. In fact, Sanchez shows why Smith should not be handed the job. There was no threat of him ever losing his job as Mark Brunell was old, Tim Tebow is not a reliable passer, and Greg McElroy failed to inspire confidence. Popular opinion states the upcoming draft class looks promising. Free agency could offer Michael Vick, and trades could bring Kirk Cousins or Matt Schaub. Taking any of these paths would provide viable alternatives perhaps. I think Smith showed enough improve at the end not be cast aside. Handing him the job however, would be a mistake. If Smith earns starter status again, than that would be the best possible outcome.
