The best case scenario for the New York Jets this upcoming season is very obvious and simple.
Imagine Geno Smith compiles a career season in which he puts up 30+ touchdowns and 4,000+ yards to just 15 or less turnovers. At just 25-years of age, Jets fans everywhere would be calling for Mike Maccagnan to sign Smith long-term as New York’s long awaited franchise quarterback.
Entering his fourth season in the league, and on his walk year, the man is still young.
Geno taking full advantage of his opportunity and cashing in would be music to every fan’s ears. Who doesn’t want a young franchise guy? It would provide Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty even more time and New York with plenty of youthful options at the position.
The simple idea of youth is another category 33-year old Ryan Fitzpatrick cannot bring to the table.
