Jets head coach Todd Bowles announced today Geno Smith will get all of the snaps with the starters in Thursday's preseason opener against the Lions.
Bowles said only Geno will work with first team against Detroit. Will discuss with coaches how much starters will play later today #Jets— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) August 10, 2015
This is no surprise if you have been following things.
I do not really have a preference as to whom starts at quarterback for the Jets against the Browns in the opener. I just want whichever quarterback is the best on the roster. By most accounts, the best quarterback in training camp has been Geno Smith by an appreciable margin. I think he has earned these reps. Now it is up to him to play well in the preseason to keep his hold on the starting job and build on his strong start to the year.
