Jets QB Geno Smith got plenty of first-team reps but no TDs during the Jets Green & White scrimmage on Saturday.
Despite many new and talented faces on the roster, the Jets offense was unable to score a TD against the defense in the annual Green & White scrimmage the team held on Saturday.
QB Geno Smith, seen by most as the frontrunner for the starting job and started with the first team squad for most of the scrimmage, went 7 of 14 for 84 yards – including two drops and two others that were nearly intercepted. Nearly half of Smith’s yards came on a 41-yard pass to WR Stephen Hill.
Veteran QB Michael Vick, who got most of his reps with the second team went 7 of 13 for 47 yards and ran for a 35 yards.
”As an offense, you always want to try to put points on the board, (but) we couldn’t do it,” Vick told the Associated Press. ”Our defense is extremely tough. I don’t know if they game planned for us in one day or what, but they did a good job.”
The two QBs are competing for the starting job, but no matter who wins, if neither offense is able to lead the team to any TDs, the outlook for the Jets in 2014 could be troubling.
The Jets start the preseason against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday.
