Jets Nelson Is Sticking Up For Geno Smith
David Nelson says he and his fellow Jets receivers are as much to blame as quarterback Geno Smith for the offensive failures in Sunday’s loss to the Bills. And Nelson says the receivers vowed to let Smith know that.
Nelson told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that the receivers all agreed that they owed it to Smith to approach him this week and let him know that they realize they didn’t do a good enough job on Sunday.
“We didn’t all walk up to him at once,” Nelson said. “It was one of those things where we made a decision as a group that if you get a chance and see Geno today, let him know that we appreciate him and we know he’s capable of leading this team to the playoffs.”
