Geno Smith is New York Jets quarterback of the future

After an up-and-down rookie season that was capped off with a strong finish, the New York Jets haven’t fully committed to Geno Smith being the team’s quarterback for the 2014 season.

NFL.com reports that general manager John Idzik noted at the eteam’s end-of-season news conference that Smith may not be the Jets answer going forward.

“We don’t look too far into the future with that,” he said. “Again, Geno started 16 games for us. You all witnessed how he did, how he finished strong. We’re very, very excited and happy that Geno is with us.”

The GM added that he believed Smith improved by “leaps and bounds” as the season progressed. If that was the case, you would think Smith would surely get another shot at leading the team to begin his sophomore season. Remember Mark Sanchez? He, too, is still under contract with the team.

“We’ll get to that in time. He is a Jet,” Idzik said of Sanchez. “We consider all our guys Jets until we make a decision or something happens that changes that. So with Mark — I met with him yesterday as well — our focus is to get him healthy, just as it has been really the entire season and then we’ll take it from there.”

Rex Ryan is returning next season and the players are thrilled about it, but the situation is still less than ideal. Teams who lack a reliable option at quarterback have a hard time winning games in the NFL. The fact that New York’s quarterback situation remains so muddled is an obstacle the team will have to address this offseason.
