Jets' Geno Smith: Switch of signal-callers possible
Head coach Todd Bowles may be considering a switch of signal-callers for Sunday's game versus the Ravens, Rich CImini of ESPN.com reports. "I did re-visit [the situation between Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith]," Bowles said Tuesday.
Down 21-3 late in the third quarter and in the red zone, Ryan Fitzpatrick tossed a back-breaking interception and was replaced by Geno Smith on the Jets' ensuing drive. Smith fared OK, completing four of six passes for 31 yards, but his final attempt was picked off by the Cardinals' Tyrann Mathieu. Afterward, Bowles merely referred to Smith as a "relief" option, but his state of mind has seemingly been altered following the return trip to the east coast. Before a decision between Fitzpatrick and Smith is made, Bowles will touch base with the coaching staff and general manager Mike Maccagnan.
