"That was a great day. I don’t know if that was his best day, because he’s had a lot of good ones, but he had a great one today.Neither Ryan nor Smith would call it his "best day," but on paper, it was. Smith connected on 15 of 16 passes in team drills with and against the starters, tossing two touchdowns, according to Brian Costello of the NY Post.Smith maintained his mantra that any day practicing is a good day because "it's about progression.""I think, like I said, overall every single day I’ve been getting better," he said.It's assumed that Smith will start against the New York Giants Saturday in the te...

Rex Ryan wants to “thoroughly” examine quarterbacks before making decision

Much Ado About Nothing
