Don’t be shocked if Reed helps the Jets win one or more games the rest of the way. If that one win gets the Jets to the postseason, the signing will prove worthwhile.
Geno Smith is not a game manager, and the Jets have to fight every impulse they might have to make him one. They’re simply not good enough to rely on the run and defense alone.
