MATT FORTE
  • Deceptively fast. Smoother than you'd think.... You can tag Matt Forte with all of the backhanded compliments you want, but the facts remain: He's the brain and the heart of Chicago's (maddeningly) lethal offense, and he's more important to his team than any other back in the NFL

  • Poor starts? We've seen a few—and we're not even counting the suspended likes of Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson

Is it time for Rex Ryan to bench Geno Smith and give the ball to Michael Vick?

This is an article from the Oct. 6, 2014 issue

Eric Pedone Yes, and this is coming from a Jets fan. Smith [7] makes no one around him on the field better when he's in.

Lew Baustert Look at Vick's recent record. He can't stay healthy, and he's 3--11 in his last 14 starts. I would stick with Geno.

Lou Casa No! Why let Rex Ryan ruin another young quarterback? It's time to let Rex go!

Brian Garcia Vick is just as bad, if not worse. Vick got benched in Philly for valid reasons: He fumbles, throws too many INTs and gets hurt all of the time. Besides, in this offense he won't have the same caliber of receivers he had in Philadelphia.

Danny Cerino Smith is the poor man's Michael Vick, so I don't know why he was even in there [as a starter] to begin with. Put the most electrifying player of all time in and see what happens.

Robby Hart No, let [Smith] develop. He's still a young QB who needs to play and get experience. He will get better with time. Don't pull the plug so soon or you will kill his confidence and his career, and waste a high draft pick all in one. They should ride the season out with Geno. Plus, Vick's best days are behind him. Geno is the future.

Ross JM Vick is just as happy sitting on the sideline making a big paycheck. If he goes out there, you know he's going to suck.

I hope Derek Jeter follows in the footsteps of Michael Jordan and now begins his lifelong dream of playing basketball.

I like how losing to Texas was the last straw for Charlie Weis. They [Kansas] could deal with being routed by Duke, but not Texas.
