Rex Ryan: Geno Smith Still Starting Quarterback

Jets_Geno_Smith_2013New York Jets coach Rex Ryan isn’t ready to bench struggling quarterback Geno Smith, but his patience appears to be waning.

One day after watching the rookie commit four turnovers in a 37-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills, Ryan said he may give backup Matt Simms some first-team reps this week as the Jets prepare for a road game against the Baltimore Ravens.

“Yeah, that’s something we could look at,” Ryan said Monday.

For Ryan, who has benched his starting quarterback only once in four-plus seasons, that statement is tantamount to a warning flare.
