Geno Smith and Michael Vick each threw touchdown passes with the New York Jets’ starting offense, and the defense mostly shut down Eli Manning before the Giants’ backups rallied for a 35-24 preseason victory Friday night.
Michael Vick has done everything asked of him and some things people don’t really know about in his role as mentor to Geno Smith.
Geno Smith and Andy Dalton had horrid performances in their last games at Paul Brown Stadium. And neither has forgotten.
A Jets commercial just popped on TV, imploring me to buy tickets for this season. The Giants don’t have to worry about selling seats — or their souls — to get you in the building, which means MetLife belongs to Big Blue.
Michael Vick says there’s a time and a place for the wildcat. Donovan McNabb knows when and where. Never. And in a landfill.
Geno Smith: three points. Michael Vick: seven. Quarterback controversy for the New York Jets? Nope. Not even close. OK, well, not yet.
Geno Smith hasn’t officially been named the Jets’ starting quarterback for Week 1, although we all know it’s his job to lose. Nothing changed on Thursday night.
Geno Smith was solid. Michael Vick showed he was still the fastest guy on the field. Both players led scoring drives. Overall it was a good — but not overwhelming — showing on Thursday night.
Michael Vick led the New York Jets on a touchdown drive, capped by fellow newcomer Chris Johnson’s 1-yard scoring run, in a 13-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night in the preseason opener for both teams.
Preseason games don’t matter? Don’t tell that to Jets quarterback Geno Smith, because his career may depend on them.
Sure, Vick would like to be the New York Jets’ starting quarterback. But, from what he has seen, they’re already in pretty good hands with Smith.
Because we think that extra million is just one too many.
“He’s going to do great,” Vick said on Tuesday in regard to Smith. “He’s going to be 10 times better than what he was last year, and I’m looking forward to it.”
Despite the talk of competition, it seems this is Geno’s job to lose. Michael Vick was listed as the backup, and third-stringer Matt Simms had the edge over rookie Tajh Boyd.
