NEW YORK — Michael Vick has watched Geno Smith every day for nearly two weeks.

Every snap and every throw.

Sure, Vick would like to be the New York Jets’ starting quarterback. But, from what he has seen, they’re already in pretty good hands with Smith.

“He’s going to be great,” Vick declared. “He’s going to be 10 times better than where he was last year and I’m looking forward to it.”

That’s quite an endorsement from a guy who still believes he can be a star in the NFL. As it stands, Vick is a big-name, veteran backup who can step in if needed and push Smith to be better in his second season.

Some fans and media wonder when — not if — Vick will replace Smith under center. The doubters aren’t sold on Smith being able to improve.
