New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith has struggled mightily since becoming the starting quarterback last season, and was demoted to backing up Michael Vick for three games earlier this year.
His struggles have drawn the ire of Jets fans everywhere - it's gotten so bad that the team didn't announce him with the rest of the offensive starters out of fear he would be booed loudly. Despite all of that, Smith says he still has the utmost confidence in his game.
“I’ve shown flashes of being a Pro Bowl-caliber quarterback, but what we’re looking for here is consistency. The best teams have consistent quarterback play and I realize that and that’s truly what I want to show to the fans and everyone outside the building,” Smith said, via Newsday.
The only thing that's been consistent for Smith in his two-year career career are his turnovers. He's thrown 33 interceptions and lost seven fumbles in just 27 career games, while throwing only 20 touchdown passes.
His struggles have been boosted by an incredibly weak supporting cast, but that won't stop the Jets from looking for a quarterback at the top of the 2015 NFL Draft.
New York is 2-11 so far this season, and rank dead last in passing offense. Their next game is Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.Back to the New York Jets Newsfeed
