They say preseason results don’t matter. Yeah, right. Try telling that to the Jets and their tortured fans.
Without Geno Smith for six to 10 weeks, the Jets could use someone with experience behind presumptive Week 1 starter Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Ryan Fitzpatrick’s bushy beard is already in midseason form. The Jets hope his command of the offense gets there, too. Quickly.
Ryan Fitzpatrick gives the Jets a fighting chance at quarterback. He has the mobility to get away from the pass rush, is an accurate short- and medium-range passer and he can also throw on the move.
Ryan Fitzpatrick may not be a star, but he’s a more accomplished quarterback than Geno Smith. And as far as the Jets are concerned, that should be good enough for the time being.
This Jets training camp has been inundated with disappointing news. The Geno Smith incident is NOT one of them.

The embattled Jets quarterback’s problems have never really been about what hangs off his right shoulder, but what sits between his ears.
