Jets | Rex Ryan praises Geno Smith

Fri, 31 Jan 2014 10:40:30 -0800

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan praised QB Geno Smith for how he finished the 2013 season. "I think there are very few players that grew as much as Geno did," Ryan said. "He had to come a million miles, and he did. When you look at the way he closed out, we saw our team ascending and part of that was the way Geno played. Statistically, he had the second-highest quarterback rating over the last month of the season. I think that's something that people don't focus on, but it's a fact."

Jets | Rex Ryan wont commit to Geno Smith as starter

Fri, 31 Jan 2014 10:38:02 -0800

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan would not name QB Geno Smith the starter for Week 1 in 2014, saying it is too early in the off season to make that decision. "With anything, you can't say anything with any certainty right now because you're just starting the off season," he said. "You don't know who your roster is going to be and things like that. It's probably not the best thing to say this guy is going to be a starter or this or that. Let's just let it play out."

Fantasy Tip: Even without Ryan saying it, Smith is the favorite to start at quarterback in Week 1, assuming the team does not make a move at the position in the off season.

Jets | Austin Howard has success against Mario Williams

Sat, 16 Nov 2013 06:31:49 -0800

New York Jets OT Austin Howard has had success against DE Mario Williams in the past, and is getting praise from the coaching staff. "He's done a phenomenal job against arguably one of the best players in the league at his position in Williams," Rex Ryan said of Howard. "He did it last year, too. Everybody thought (Williams) was getting doubled. No, he was getting doubled by (Howard's) left arm and right arm. He's just a big, athletic guy and he matches well against almost anybody. He's another young player that's ascending."

Jets | May bring back wristband for Geno Smith

Wed, 02 Oct 2013 12:33:27 -0700

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said he is considering bringing back the color coded wristband in order to help QB Geno Smith reduce turnovers. The team used a similar approach with QB Mark Sanchez in 2009. The wrist band helps the quarterback determine how aggressive or conservative he should be with a play call. "Hey, whatever it takes," Ryan said, adding: "I've been thinking about it. There's a fine line between being aggressive and being smart with it as well."

Fantasy Tip: While the idea is to help Smith prevent turnovers, it is still tough to trust Smith for more than bye week fill in work at this point as he continues to go through rookie bumps and bruises.

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan thinks QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) could return this season.

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 11:27:08 -0700

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said it is possible the team could wait until game day of Week 1 to announce who the starting quarterback will be.

Jets | Moving away from ground-and-pound philosophy?

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 15:33:55 -0700

The New York Jets ran the ball only 16 times and passed it 42 times in their first preseason game. Although head coach Rex Ryan would like more balance than that, he hinted that it's possible the team will look to throw more often in 2013. "Who said you need to be balanced?" offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said. "You score points throwing the ball. Now you're getting into a philosophical situation. Look it, we don't care how we get it done -- running, passing, we don't care who gets the credit. It's whatever it takes to win the next game."
