Willie Colon thinks Geno Smith is ready to start

-

Despite having thoughts to the contrary just a few months ago, former New York Jets offensive lineman Willie Colon thinks Geno Smith is ready to be the starting quarterback of the team.

In an interview with ESPN Radio, Colon said that the demotion of Smith last season made him understand what it takes to be a true pro in the league.

“I think he’s taken on everything; I think he’s ready to rise,” Colon said via NJ.com. “I still have confidence in him. I think with the pieces we have around him, and continue to put around him, he can be successful. I honestly believe that. I think Geno’s a good quarterback.”

Smith lost his starting job last season to Ryan Fitzpatrick, who is still a free agent by the way, after having his jaw broken by former teammate IK Enemkpali. Fitzpatrick came in, and almost led the Jets to the playoffs before a terrible performance in the final game of the regular season against Buffalo.

Should Fitzpatrick return to the Jets, Smith will have an uphill battle to get his job back. Should the Jets move on from Fitzpatrick, Smith will then have to prove to the team that they don’t need to look for another quarterback via the draft or elsewhere.
