NFL Rumors: Jets starting Geno Smith over Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. Ravens

Jets Todd Bowles not yet ready to name new starter in Week 7
The Jets may find themselves losing their season but Coach Todd Bowles stands by his starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick going into Week 7.

The New York Jets lost big to the Arizona Cardinals, 28-3 last Monday and the team could be making a change with their starting quarterback spot. Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was benched in the fourth quarter in the recent loss, could be replaced by backup QB Geno Smith in their next game.

The Jets dropped to 1-5 after the loss and will face the Baltimore Ravens next.

Jets head coach Todd Bowles said that he expects Fitzpatrick to bounce back after the Cardinals loss. But on Wednesday, the Jets coach said that the team would consider other options at QB, which could pave the way for Smith to start against the Ravens, according to the New York Post.

Smith said in interviews that he’s excited to have a chance at playing as he saw limited action in the first few games of the season.

“Geno Smith did show some promise when he was in there. He understood the game plan. He did good for the drive he was in there” Bowles stated to ESPN earlier in the week about Smith starts and replacing Fitzpatrick under center.

“We have to talk about more than that. There’s a possibility every week there will be some changes made, player-wise.”

The Jets went 1-1 to start the season but has lost four straight, Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks, Pittsburgh Steelers and Cardinals. After the Ravens, they’ll face the Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins so they still have a chance to turn around their season.
