Geno Smith's Struggles Continue, Benched For Mike Vick - Is This The End For Geno?

The New York Jets drafted Geno Smith in the second round of the 2013 draft with the hope that he'd be the quarterback of the future.

It might be time to move on, already.

Smith showed flashes of promise during his rookie season, but has been downright terrible this year.

His play seems to have hit an all-time low this afternoon against the Bills, as he was 2/8 for five yards and three interceptions in just one quarter of work. After his third pick, head coach Rex Ryan replaced him with backup Mike Vick.

Smith is still a young quarterback, but the Jets have run out of patience with him. New York is already out of the playoff picture, so Smith might still get the rest of the season to try and prove himself.

That being said, the damage is already done. It's clear Smith is not the answer, and the Jets will be in the running to draft a quarterback at the top of the draft (Marcus Mariota, anyone?).

Whether he plays another snap for the rest of the season, Smith will not be the New York Jets starting quarterback after this season.
