Huge scoop by the New York Daily News – huge Dan Leberfeld
The headline in the Daily News read – “If Geno Smith can say interception-free, QB will secure NY Jets starting job.”
Manish Mehta wrote, “The Jets farcical quarterback competition will conclude Saturday night with rookie Geno Smith needing two turnover-free to secure a job that many people in the organization want him to win.
“Although Rex Ryan wasn’t announced a starter for the third preseason game against the Giants, The Daily News has learned that Smith will get the nod if he doesn’t suffer a setback with his ankle in the next few days.
“The plan is simple: Start the rookie if he’s healthy.”
This is a scoop of biblical proportions.
There is no way around it.
