New York Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey had some surprising remarks in regards to the Jets starting quarterback position. Gailey’s presence in New York is a large reason why the Jets traded for Ryan Fitzpatrick who Gailey coached in Buffalo. Nevertheless, Gailey ended any speculation of a quarterback competition for the starting gig.

Gailey said he didn’t anticipate a competition for the job, saying “Because Geno’s the starter,” via Brian Costello of the New York Post.

Of course things could change between now and the start of the season as this contradicts every thing General Manager Mike Maccagnan said in March, after trading for veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick. Of course Fitzpatrick is unable to practice yet due to suffering a broken leg towards the end of last season. The Jets also drafted former Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty in the 3rd round. The plan for Petty seems to be for him to sit and learn a year unless things get ugly for Geno Smith and the Jets.

Year three in the Geno Smith era will be crucial in deciding his fate in this league. The AFC East is more wide open than ever especially after the suspension of Tom Brady. If Geno Smith can master the art of game manager, the Jets can become contenders for an AFC East crown especially with the addition of Darelle Revis anchoring the secondary.
