No matter how you spin it, the success of the 2014 New York Jets will come down to what they get out of the quarterback position, specifically Geno Smith.
Through a week of practice, Smith has made more headlines because of his mouth than his play. He did have a fast start with a strong opening practice, looking as good as veteran receiver David Nelson has ever seen him, per Seth Walder of the New York Daily News.
However, Smith cooled off on Monday after completing just four out of 10 passes, Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports. Vick was also less-than-impressive, connecting on just four of seven passes.
So far, neither Vick nor Smith has done much on the field to stand out as a franchise savior, but they have been at least par for the course so far. These two players have been on track, but neither has yet to emerge as the star player the Jets have yearned for at the position.
That said, there is still plenty of time for Smith (or Vick) to take training camp by storm and ruin any chance of a "competition" brewing.
