Jets May Use Geno Smith as a Change of Pace QB



Before I comment I want you to read the quote from Helmet to Helmet.

According to Rich Cimini of, the Jets are “toying with the idea” of using Smith as a “change-of-pace quarterback” if he doesn’t earn the starting job.

In this scenario, Smith would have a package of plays — mostly of the read-option variety — that could “exploit his speed.” 

Did the Jets do any research on Geno Smith, he isn’t a read option QB, he played from the pocket most of the time at West Virginia, so this is destine to fail.


  1. This just goes to show how Black quarterbacks are denied the privilege of uniqueness. If RG3 and Cam run the option – so must Geno. Why? He’s black and has some speed – That’s the ridiculous logic that exists in the NFL. Thankfully the CFL doesn’t have these attitudes.
