He needs a little margin of error #nyj Dan Leberfeld

Are we going to let a few knuckleheads drive the narrative?

Is that where we’re at?

Geno Smith had a few bad plays in a “practice” at MetLife Stadium, he gets booed, and this is a big story?

I’m no special-pleader for Smith, but this is sad.

Keep in mind, the Jets are installing a new offense, and have a lot of new players, so there are some kinks to work out right now.

And that is what training camp is for – to get the kinks out.

What the heck are people booing him for?

Do they expect him to walk on water in an early summer practice? Do they expect perfection? He’s going to make mistakes.

Look, I don’t know if he’s the Jets’ long-term answer at quarterback. Todd Bowles, Mike Maccagnan and Chan Gailey are still trying to figure that out.

But for him to get booed, and for that to be the big story coming out of a practice, is unfortunate.
