This should have little impact Dan Leberfeld

Florham Park – IK Enemkpali punched Geno Smith in the face and broke his jaw.

The quarterback is out 6-8 weeks.

While this an unfortunate incident, I don’t think it will really have a big impact on the Jets’ season.

One thing was pretty apparent watching the first couple of weeks of Jets training camp – Geno Smith isn’t better than Ryan Fitzpatrick.

In fact, I give Fitzpatrick a slight edge.

I’m not putting Fitzpatrick in Canton, but he’s made quicker decisions than Smith in camp. He processes defenses faster and is clearly more comfortable in Chan Gailey’s offense. Fitzpatrick played under Gailey in Buffalo.

Fitzpatrick has been much better than Smith on hot reads when blitzed.

So while what happened today to Smith is troubling, it probably won’t have a big impact on the team’s won-loss record.
