Jets intend to 'lessen the load' on Geno Smith

The New York Jets want to help quarterback Geno Smith succeed in his second season in the league. According to TFY Draft Insider’s Tony Pauline, the Jets intend to “lessen the load” on Smith by keeping him “under 20 passes per game.”

From TFY Draft Insider:

The New York Jets are returning to a more run oriented offense in 2014 in an attempt to exploit their strengths and lessen the load on Geno Smith. I’m told the game plan is to try and keep Smith under 20 passes per game. Part of the plan is to keep continuity on the offensive line, which is why they’ve made resigning right tackle Austin Howard a priority.

That could be a solid plan for the Jets offense and Smith.

    That will only work if you have a running game and an OL who can open up holes for the running game

    No way this is true. The Jets are not deciding on the workload of a quarterback in a West Coast offense in March.

    He is way better the more he throws and gets in a rhythm. not throw a pass here, and next quarter throw a pass here. that was what they tried to do when geno had his 4 game slump. just get weapons that can catch, n let him play!!!
