Jets Rookie QB Geno Smith Feels He Has A 'Great Shot' At Winning Starting Job
To this point in the Jetsí QB battle, itís been Mark Sanchez doing most of the talking. The fifth-year veteran has said heís planning on winning the job while rookie Geno Smith has kept his rhetoric to a minimum. That tune seems to be changing a little bit.
ďI feel like I have a great shot,Ē Smith told the Charleston (W. Va.) Gazette about winning the starting job. ďI did a pretty good job overall of just adapting to the (Jetsí) system and playbook and felt very comfortable with it by the end of OTAs and mandatory (minicamp).Ē
Smith and Sanchez are both hoping to be under center in Week 1 against Darrelle Revis and the Tampa Bay Bucs. Their competition will make training camp in Cortland an interesting watch.
ďI have a goal in mind and Iím really going to go after that,Ē said Smith, the Jetsí second-round pick out of West Virginia. ďI want to be the best. Itís going to take time and effort and thatís what Iím willing to put in. Once I step on the field itís about business. Iím really appreciative to have made it to this level, but thereís a lot more for me out there and Iím going to try and strive for it.Ē
