AFC East Notes: Jets, Dolphins, Bills

Jets legend Joe Namath will not be purchasing a Geno Smith jersey in the foreseeable future. Talking to New York’s WFAN, Namath didn’t sound too impressed with the second-year player. Via Darryl Slater of The Star-Ledger

“I can’t evaluate Geno other than what I’ve heard from his coaches. I don’t see anything outstanding about him. He’s not an outstanding passer. He’s not an outstanding runner. He’s good, but nothing jumps out at me with intangibles that I’m not aware of because I’m not there on an everyday (basis).

“I haven’t seen anything really extra special from Geno, and that’s not to be negative at all. The guy performed really darn well on a professional level against guys that were so much better than he’s ever played against. The upside of Geno is going to be strong. The upside is grasping his offense versus the defenses he sees.

“Just looking at him physically, what’s outstanding about his running ability? What’s outstanding about his passing ability? Nothing to me is outstanding about it, but it’s pretty good.”
