Round-1 goes to Geno Smith.

Media members around the league have been waiting for Geno Smith to comment on the Jets interest in Michael Vick.   Last night after Vick signed with the Jets, Smith still had yet to speak.

Geno broke his silence Saturday, and told the Associated press that “the signing of Michael Vick is just awesome.”

“Awesome, man. Vick’s my guy,” Smith said. “We needed to find a guy that was legitimately a guy that could come in and play. I think that’s what we did. Mission accomplished.”

Smith says he realizes that Vick wants to play and won’t be content as a backup.

“That’s every quarterback,” Smith said. “I understand where Mike’s coming from. No one wants to sit the bench. I don’t know a player that does.”

Smith said he’s ready for the competiton.

“It’s just good to have a guy to compete with like Mike,” Smith said. “We’re going to compete. We’re not going to say, ‘Hey, you’re the starter.’ And we’ll leave it at that. We want to get better. I love it. It’s really making everyone work harder and keep you right on your toes because you don’t have a moment to be satisfied or just say ‘I’ve arrived.’ You’ve got to continue to work at it.”

Round-1 goes to Geno because he understands that to survive the hurricane that will become the Michael Vick experience, he first has to acknowledge that Vick is coming.

It’s nothing personal, it’s nothing to get sensitive about, but Michael Vick chose the Jets for a reason.
