Rex Ryan Doesn't Know Next Week's Starting Quarterback

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

In contrast to other games this season, Rex Ryan did not commit to a quarterback in today's postgame press conference.

There aren't really any good options, but I think the Jets have to turn to Michael Vick. It isn't just about how Vick was (relatively) better today. Geno has been given more than enough chances. Vick has come into games twice in relief. That isn't easy to do. Let's see what he can do when he can work with the first team all week in practice and install the game plan.

I think there also comes to be a point where putting Geno Smith on the bench is necessarily just to send a message that he can't keep the starting job no matter how poor his play is. There have to be repercussions for performances like we saw today.
