Geno Smith named starter again, but not by choice

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported Thursday that offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and quarterbacks coach David Lee were among the majority of people in the organization, including players, who wanted to stick with Michael Vick as the team’s starting quarterback.

According to Mehta, Jets coach Rex Ryan also wanted to move forward with Vick, but chose to placate management as his six-year tenure with the team comes to a likely close.

“I think the best thing for this team right now is to play Geno Smith,” Ryan said during a Wednesday conference call. “Does he give you a good chance to win? Or a chance to win? I believe he does give us a chance to win.”
