Geno Smith Remains Starting Quarterback For New York Jets

Geno Smith was told by New York Jets quarterbacks coach David Lee that he will remain the starter for the team as they prepare to play the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

Smith was benched last night after going 4 for 10, with one interception in a 23-3 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

He commented on Rex Ryan’s decision in a press conference today.

“If it was a tactic to wake me up or get me going, it definitely worked.”

The Jets are 5-7 on the season with three straight losses on the season, and in third place in the AFC East.
