Geno Smith, involved in two unflattering off-the-field incidents this offseason, was addressed recently by general manager John Idzik and coach Rex Ryan. Idzik made it clear they won't tolerate behavior that embarrasses the franchise, "No, I don't view any free passes," Idzik said. "We hold our players to a high standard -- on the field and off the field. That's part of acting like a Jet. It's not only playing like a Jet, it's acting like a Jet. Everyone understands that."
Just what the NFL needs -- another moron who can't behave like a mature adult. Moments like these won't endear Smith to the Jets faithful and they certainly won't endear him to the coaching staff. If he doesn't straighten out and learn to act like a grown-up, he'll be let go before he knows it and no one will want to pick him up. It's not like his debut season was all that great that he can afford to act like an idiot.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Bobby Parnell's velocity was up to 94-95 MPH in his rehab appearance on Thursday.
Parnell conceded eight runs in his first 6 1/3 rehab innings. He's been lights out lately, with his velocity trending in the right direction. He's on the road to recovery from Tommy John, and it often takes pitchers time before their velocity, control and feel return. Parnell's velocity had dropped substantially before the UCL tear was announced last season, so it's a nice sign that he's throwing hard once again. Analysis: Spencer Silva
