Geno Smith says the Jets are going to the Playoffs in 2013.
New Jets QB Geno Smith: "We’re going to the playoffs next year." #nyj— Manish Mehta(@MMehtaNYDN) April 26, 2013
Geno Smith holding firm to prediction that Jets will make playoffs next year. How about the Super Bowl? "That's a tough one. We’ll see"— Manish Mehta(@MMehtaNYDN) April 26, 2013
Making bold predictions about the team's success? He's been a Jet less than two hours, and Geno has already caught on to the way the team does business.
Make no mistake. There is still a large hill to climb. The Jets still do not look very good on paper. For the first time in a long time, though, there feels like room for legitimate hope. It's at least conceivable that Rex Ryan can coach up the defense, and Geno can give the Jets enough quality quarterback play to surprise some people.
Unlike Geno, I would not predict it. I still find it unlikely. I would have found it close to impossible before tonight.
