Jon Gruden feels Geno Smith and Michael Vick will finish in a two horse race

ESPN analyst Jon Gruden doesn’t have a strong feeling about who will prevail in the New York Jets’ quarterback competition. In a conference call Tuesday with Rich Cimini of ESPN, Gruden was non-committal on Geno Smith versus Michael Vick, although he suspects Smith would be the Week 1 starter if it’s a close battle.

“I wish I could answer that,” Gruden said. “It’s a two-horse race. It might be a photo finish. You might have to ask me this after we see the preseason. I have no idea, just because Michael Vick has an association with Marty Mornhinweg. I do like what Geno Smith did as a freshman … er, rookie quarterback in the NFL. He had a rocky beginning — he had some rough outings — but he showed some mental and physical toughness. I think he improved. I like the youth at the quarterback position that has experience. I think if it’s close, I think the tie goes to the second-year player.” 

I don’t know who will win the race, but I think Michael Vick will win.  I don’t think it will be a close race either, but we will see.  Today Geno was given the majority of the reps.
