  • Todd Bowles on Geno Smith: Teammates ‘don’t hate’ him

    Sportress of Blogitude "To say that New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles gave a less than ringing endorsement of new starting quarterback Geno Smith would be something of an understatement.

    Bleacher Report "He doesn't surf through the mass of humanity to greet anyone, nor is anyone waiting to greet him. There's no jersey exchange. No reminiscing. He's mired in postgame purgatory these days. Darting his eyes around New Era Field one final time, he decides that, nah, he's good and heads through the..." September 30

  • Why Jets’ Geno Smith won't be filling Vikings’ quarterback void

    New York Daily News "Teddy Bridgewater’s season-ending knee injury has prompted some inquiring minds to wonder whether the Vikings would want Geno Smith to fill their quarterback void.

  • Bryce Petty deserves more time with a better supporting cast in Jets' second preseason game — ahead of Geno Smith

    New York Daily News "I feared for Bryce Petty’s life last Thursday the way that sportswriters fear for any professional quarterback getting pulverized behind a horrific offensive line made up nobodies on a sweltering summer night: A safe distance away in air conditioning. By the time Petty’s performance in the Jets..." August 16

  • Report: Geno Smith snubbing media for writing about one-year IK KO anniversary

  • Geno Smith reportedly ‘intent’ on beating out Ryan Fitzpatrick

    Larry Brown Sports "The New York Jets have finally reached an agreement with Ryan Fitzpatrick on a one-year, $12 million deal, but that does not mean Geno Smith is ready to accept spending another season as a backup.
