New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles has already stated the team will turn to quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick again for next week’s game, but Geno Smith wants everyone to know he’ll stay ready.
“I always want to be out there,” Smith told media following Monday’s loss. “… That’s just the way I roll.”
Smith entered the game in the fourth quarter and completed 4-of-6 passes for 31 yards before throwing an interception. Still, Smith is confident he can contribute if called upon.
“As a competitor, I want to play all the time,” Smith said, adding, “I feel like I’m going to be ready. I’m ready right now.”
The 1-5 Jets may have to make a move to Smith, or another quarterback on their roster, at some point, as their playoff hopes have almost surely slipped away.
