New York Jets: Geno Smith Decides Not To Grade Second Minicamp Performance

New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith continues to learn the ropes of the NFL after another day of rookie minicamps.

In his initial performance, Smith gave himself an “F” grade, but he has decided to leave the grading up to the coaches after his second NFL practice.

“I’ll leave the grading to the coaches, but I think today was another good day,” Smith said, according to the team’s transcriptions.  “It got better again today, so that’s something that I just continue to do daily, I try to improve, even if it’s just in the smallest amount.  I think I did that today.”

Smith then went in to some details to let us all know how he improved from Day 1 to Day 2.

“I was able to get in and out of the huddle a lot smoother than yesterday,” he said. “Overall, I think as an offense we had some good moments and some not so good moments.  But it’s still a work in progress.  Every single one of us is out there learning, just trying to better ourselves and just trying to make the team.”

That doesn’t sound like a diva to me.

Instead, it sounds like a humble, hard-working kid who is approaching everything with the right mindset.

While Smith wants to focus on just making the roster, he should focus on the more realistic goals which would include cracking the starting line up. We all know that the second-round pick is going to make the roster. It is just a matter of when he will take over Mark Sanchez’s team.
