Jets to name Geno Smith their starting quarterback

Jets coach Todd Bowles announced that Smith will replace Ryan Fitzpatrick, who has compiled an 11-11 record as the Jets' starter over two seasons.

Smith has not started a game for NY since December 28, 2014.

Smith was expected to be the Jets starting quarterback heading into the 2015 season, but an altercation with former teammate IK Enemkpali led to a broken jaw and the loss of the starting role.

"I think all of us have a lot of confidence in him", Gailey said of Smith.

Gailey insisted he fully supported Bowles' decision to sit Fitzpatrick, despite the fact he and the quarterback have a long history that dates to their days together in Buffalo.

So, basically, Smith is a bridge quarterback, just as Fitzpatrick was a bridge quarterback. It has been a miserable 2016 so far for Fitzpatrick after having a career year last season with the Jets as Fitzpatrick has only thrown five touchdowns along with 11 interceptions during his first six games including 10 interceptions in the second half along with zero touchdowns. He was benched late in Monday night's 28-3 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Fitzpatrick leads the National Football League in interceptions so far with 11, and he has yet to throw a single touchdown pass in the second of any game. "Fitz is our starter".

"I felt like it was time for a change", Bowles explained Wednesday, adding it's possible Fitzpatrick can gain his job back, but Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg aren't now in consideration to start if Smith falters. Bowles said it's "definitely possible" that one of them could start by the end of the season.

Michael Moore Debuts Film on Trump Weeks Before Vote
The Bowling for Columbine director performed his show for two nights in OH to a crowd of mostly conservative voters. On Tuesday, the filmmaker surprised his fans with news that he would debut his new film about Donald Trump .

Marshall could be injecting some levity into the situation for the 1-5 Jets. They re-signed him to a $12 million one-year deal on the eve of training camp. It would be hard to play much worse than Fitzpatrick has played.

Veteran quarterback Fitzpatrick took over and had a career year, passing for 3,905 yards with 31 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.

Now with Fitzpatrick struggling, the Jets want to see what their 2013 second-round pick can do. He flashed occasional glimpses of potential, but he had 34 interceptions and 71 sacks in those two years.

This will be Smith's first start since December of 2014.

Smith, who hasn't shown the explosiveness to beat opposing offensive tackles, has been slowed at times by an ankle injury.

"That goes back to me making sure everybody gets on the same page".

"It's not about me", Smith said. Smith commented on his playing time prior to the game and Bowles reaction was inflammatory.
