FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Geno Smith is eager to get back on the field for the New York Jets after a frustrating loss to the New England Patriots last Thursday night.
The rookie quarterback says Monday he was ``mad at myself'' for some of the mistakes that were made during a ``sloppy'' fourth quarter for the Jets (1-1) in the 13-10 defeat. Smith was intercepted three times in the final 15 minutes, but there were also several dropped passes throughout.
He acknowledged that he tried to force some things against the Patriots with bad throws and decisions.
Coach Rex Ryan has not committed to Smith as the starter beyond this week against the Buffalo Bills (1-1). But Smith says he has been treated fairly and this week is another opportunity to prove himself.
