Color-system could be coming back Dan Leberfeld

In 2009, the Jets used a passing system based on colors for Mark Sanchez.

It was done to make the Jets’ passing game safer.

It looks like Rex Ryan is bringing it back for Geno Smith.

“I had mentioned red, yellow, green – hey, whatever it takes,” Ryan said. “I’m thinking about (the color system). It’s kind of a fine line, about being aggressive, yet being smart with it as well.”‘

In the first four games, Smith has 11 turnovers.
