QuoteFormer Jets QB coach rips Geno Smith: His play ‘killed us’
Former Jets quarterbacks coach David Lee pointed the finger for the Jets’ struggles in the last two years at his pupil Geno Smith.
Lee, now the Bills quarterbacks coach under former Jets coach Rex Ryan, told the Bills’ website the Jets played good enough defense to win games the last two years — the team went 8-8 and 4-12, respectively — but Smith doomed them.
“Rex and I talked about it, he had some inconsistency, and the up-and-down part is what killed us,” Lee said of Smith. “He would get loose with the football. We played good enough defense to win over there both years, but his play it’ll cost you and it cost us. But he also did some great things. The last five games this season he was the seventh-rated passer in the league. He had a perfect passer rating in his last game at Miami. The potential and ability is there.”
Now, Lee will try to turn around EJ Manuel, who was drafted a round ahead of Smith in 2013, and has had his share of struggles. Lee praised Manuel’s pre-draft work with the Jets, saying he did better on a test Lee administered than any other quarterback in that draft, including Smith.
“We flew him in before the draft and I gave him a test,” Lee said. “I gave him a pamphlet to study and told him I was going to test him the next morning. It was long and detailed and he aced it. He didn’t miss anything. No other quarterback that came in did that, but he did.”

QuoteDavid Harris Not 100 Percent Committed To Being Back With Jets Next Year
Jason Cole of the Bleacher Report mentions that Jets LB David Harris will be the top inside linebacker on the open market this year “without question.”
Sources tell Cole that Harris is not 100 percent committed to being back with the Jets next year, and his preference would be to play for a contender. However, Cole did say that Harris would like to finish out his career as a member of the Jets.
Cole believes Harris would be willing to take less in terms of salary for an opportunity to make the playoffs and contend for a Super Bowl championship.
There has been some speculation that Rex Ryan would like to lure Harris to Buffalo next year, but it sounds like he may look for a more proven team to sign with.
Harris, 31, finished out his four-year contract worth $36 million, which included $29.5 million guaranteed.
In 2014, Harris recorded 124 tackles, 5.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles over the course of 16 games. Pro Football Focus has Harris rated as the No. 29 inside linebacker out of 60 qualifying players.

Jets’ deal with OC Chan Gailey has not gotten done, and there are questions as to whether it will, leaving Gailey and Jets’ futures uncertain. “Everybody made it seem like a done deal – everybody except me,” Gailey said Monday. Three other teams have talked to Gailey about joining their staff and he is contemplating whether to do it, he said. He only wants to coach with the right team in the right situation. But those reports of Gailey joining the Jets were premature and Gailey said the two sides are at a crossroads, “but nothing’s happened yet.”
