Jets OC Gailey: Geno Smith 'probably' Week 1 starter at QB
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey said there would not be a quarterback competition during training camp and that incumbent QB Geno Smith would "probably" be the team's starter during Week 1 of the regular season, per the Daily News

Smith, who threw for 2,525 yards, 13 touchdowns with 13 interceptions a season ago, figured to be locked in a battle with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starter's role, instead will go into camp with the job his to lose, according to Gailey. 

"You see an awful lot of talent there … he can be pretty good if he can get it all together," Gailey said.

Jets QB Geno Smith: I'm motivated by winning
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Jets have been doing their due dilligence in scouting college quarterbacks leading into the draft, but current starter Geno Smith plans on maintaining that position. He claims he's not even thinking about potential competition.

"You have to expect anything," he told the New York Daily News. "I believe this is my team. I go out there and I work hard and I try to lead the guys the best way that I can. ... I don't listen to the outside noise. I don't think it's important at all. I don't think it motivates me. I'm motivated by the fact that we need to win."

So is new coach Todd Bowles, who wants his quarterback taking that mental approach.

"If you look at what we draft instead of worrying about what you can do, you're going to lose your spot," Bowles said.

The interest in college quarterbacks, however, is based on Smith's inability so far to help the Jets become a consistent winner. He performed better down the stretch last year, however, completing 66 percent of his passes for 1,001 yards and six touchdowns with just two interceptions in his last four games combined. The Jets won two of those games.

Jets' Geno Smith spent two months training with QB mentor House
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Jets quarterback Geno Smith spent nearly two months this offseason training with former major-league pitcher Tom House, according to ESPN. House said he had Smith focus on four basic metrics: Biomechanical, functional strength, nutrition and a mental/emotional profile.

"I think he left incrementally better in all four metrics," House said.

House described Smith as a hard worker that is "not afraid to put in the time." House said they challenged Smith and "he met the challenge perfectly."

"He's really good," said House, who has also worked with Tom Brady and Drew Brees. "None of them are perfect -- Nolan Ryan and Greg Maddux weren't perfect when they came to me -- but we try to train for perfection."

Smith spoke highly of his time with House, who said he made "incremental changes in (Smith's) delivery and incremental changes in his conditioning."

"This should make him a more consistent performer for a longer time," House said.

Jets QB Geno Smith vows to be better
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Geno Smith, who figures to be in a battle for the Jets starting quarterback job with Ryan Fitzpatrick, said Monday after the team's first voluntary workout that he needed to perform better this season, per Newsday

"In this league, there isn't room for excuses ... moral victories. I've got to put this team in a position to be successful," he said. 

Smith managed 2,525 yards, 13 touchdowns with 13 interceptions a season ago.

Todd Bowles: Jets planning to add another quarterback
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Jets coach Todd Bowles is a fan of competition. 

Instead of being content with quarterbacks Geno Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Matt Simms competing for the starting job, Bowles, via the Newark Star-Ledger, said the team has plans to add a fourth signal caller to the mix

Bowles said this on a conference call with season-ticket holders. 

"Ryan's going to compete, as well as Geno's going to compete," Bowles said. "And we hope to add somebody else to help compete with that along with Simms."

That could mean many things, such as adding a veteran quarterback, a mid-to-late-rounder or someone looking to get back in the league. Or perhaps it's a sign the Jets want to take a quarterback — possibly Marcus Mariota — with the sixth overall pick if the opportunity arises.
