Jets QB Geno Smith had a first quarter he hopes to soon forget Sunday against the Bills. He threw three interceptions on three consecutive possessions in the first quarter, and soon after found a seat on the bench as Jets head coach Rex Ryan turned to Michael Vick to replace him. Smith to his credit criticized his own play only.
“We didn’t execute,” said Smith. “We didn’t execute again. (When) I say we, I’m talking about myself because it was just atrocious, the way that I started out. I never expected to start a game out like that. I’ve got to make sure that I get better from that and don’t allow things like that to happen (and) put ourselves in those types of positions like that.
“It’s very surprising. Hats off to the Buffalo Bills. They had a good game plan, but I think we had a good one also. I didn’t do half as good a job as I’ve done in previous games. I really hurt us.”
Geno Smith now in nine quarters of play against the Bills in his career has thrown eight interceptions. His passer rating in each of the last two games against Buffalo is 10.1 and 0.
When asked if he is concerned about losing his starting QB job for the Jets this was his response.
“I’m just worried about what I need to do to get better from (Sunday),” he said. “I’ve got a lot of work to do. I’ve got work cut out for myself. It’s something that I believe that I can get turned around.”
