Geno Smith: Jets coaching 'change could be good'

Print

Change is coming to Gotham.

With Jets owner Woody Johnson calling together an advisory football council to serve as a sounding board for potential sweeping changes in Florham Park, at least one player believes change might help this 3-12 team.

Starting quarterback Geno Smith acknowledged Monday, per ESPN New York's Rich Cimini, that moving on from coach Rex Ryan would be "a tough thing to do, but we are professionals and we have to do it. A change could be good for us all."

The larger question in New York is whether Johnson will retain the services of embattled general manager John Idzik, who hasn't exactly endeared himself to Jets fans over two tumultuous seasons.

Smith should be careful what he wishes for.

The marriage between Geno and Rex has always been rocky, but a new coaching staff might decide to wipe away this team's stale crop of underwhelming quarterbacks long before next September dawns.
