New York Jets: Geno Smith Confident Going Into Monday Night

By Alan Schechter

Geno Smith may be in the beginning of a five-week audition to either remain with the Jets, or earn a spot on another NFL roster. However, don’t tell that to Geno Smith. Despite his up and down tenure with the Jets, he is not focused on himself. Smith is focused on the next game, and performing well:

I can’t worry about that. At the end of the day, it comes down to making positive plays and staying in the moment and taking it one play at a time. I’ve got to go out there and read my keys and do what’s right on that particular play. I can’t be focused on what’ll happen here down the line because that’ll sidetrack me from what’s really important which is going out there and playing the game.

Smith also talked about his comfort level within the offense:

Well, I’ve always felt like that’s been something that’s been growing, just an overall understanding of the game, our offense, just everything in general. My complete control of the offense is something that’s continually growing and I’ve got to continue to work at it. I feel a lot more comfortable now than I was maybe a few weeks before. But, obviously, you’ve got to go out there and prove it on the field.

This is likely the last stand for Geno Smith, over the last five games of the season. He seems focused, but time will tell if that translates into performance.
