Geno Smith can have 2nd New York act: If he doesnt throw it away

Geno Smith can have 2nd New York act: If he doesnt throw it away

Friday was the first night of the rest of Geno Smiths NFL life.

And he spent much of it looking very much like Eli Mannings next backup quarterback.

Until he gave you a flashback to his infamous Jets past with an interception that left MetLife Stadium groaning and cost the Giants three points late in the third quarter of a 20-12 Steelers victory in the first preseason game for Big Blue.

There would seem to be only one way Smith can lose this backup quarterback battle with journeyman Josh Johnson " if he throws it away.

For being the first time playing since October in real active competition, I felt like I saw things quick, Smith told The Post. And obviously I feel like I can get a lot better.

That interception cant happen. A couple of those plays where I could have changed the protection and got us into the right protection and those are things that Ill fix this upcoming week going into the next game.

I asked him if he loves being a Giant.

I like it, I like it I feel like Ill learn to love it, he told The Post with a big smile.

On the first night of the rest of Geno Smiths life, do not forget that unlike Johnson, he was working the entire time behind the second- and third-team offensive lines.
