Zappone Poll: Is Michael Vick Better Than Geno Smith?
Who’s the starter for the Jets? No one seems to know but everyone has an opinion.
The Jets say it’s both of them. Vick says it’s Geno. Geno agrees.
Joe Namath says that Vick is better than Geno.
“I don’t know any football fan that’s been around for nine or 10 years that doesn’t think Michael will be outstanding and probably is the best player at this time,” Namath told the media on Tuesday evening at the Gridiron Gala in New York City.

“If Mike’s healthy, I think he’s the better player at this point. Now, Geno’s got some talent, no doubt, but we’ve obviously seen Michael and what he can do. To have some knowledge of [Marty Mornhinweg's] offense, I think that’s an advantage, too, for Michael to make the transition. It’s a matter of how sound he is.”
The Jets signed Vick this off-season after Smith led the Jets to the least amount of TD receptions in 2014.
