Despite the obvious struggles that New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith has had in his rookie season, the team continues to have confidence in his ability.

Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg was recently speaking about his young signal-caller, when he gave Smith a vote of confidence and said that he truly believes Smith has the talent to become a successful quarterback in the NFL.

“I’m even more certain now than I was earlier that he could be a really good one,” Mornhinweg said, via the New York Daily News. “Everybody progresses at a different rate at really all positions, but (in) particular the quarterback. I felt like we had to restart almost a few weeks back.

“He’s got skill and ability. He’s a bright young man. . . He’s got instincts. Now, from afar or if you’re not really in it, it’s probably hard to see the great progress. He’s certainly progressed.”

Throughout the season, Smith has had some brief flashes of brilliance, but more often than not he has shown some horrendous decision making.

At a time when many are debating whether or not Smith would have what it takes to succeed as the Jets quarterback, it has to be comforting for Smith and the Jets fans that the team has faith in their young signal-caller.

    A quick note about Geno Smith. Does anyone besides Buffalo Bills
    fans see that he has been playing terribly since the Bills defeated him
    and the Jets? Ever since that beat down Geno is terrible. We sacked and
    intercepted him so many times that since then he has played like a
    scared chicken! He now seems to hear footsteps, Bills footsteps? He
    seems to see shadows, Bills shadows? GO BILLS!!

      You need to calm down, no one cares about that CFL team in Buffalo. btw, Geno has been playing great the past few weeks. His game against the Browns was arguably his second best game of the season after the Atlanta game.
