Smith wants to be like Michael Jordan Dan Leberfeld

Geno Smith is setting the bar very high.

“I was a big Michael Jordan fan, just from the things that I read and heard about him is he always held his teammates to the utmost accountability,” Smith told newyorkjets.com “That’s something I try and do. I try to hold myself to the highest standard possible.”

Then how does he explain reporting to training camp out of shape?

How is that holding yourself to the “highest standard possible?”

Look, Geno could turn into a terrific NFL quarterback, but conditioning is an important part of the job, and he must improve in that area.
