The Jets’ season has been over for a few weeks, but Geno Smith took a hard sack Wednesday.

David Lee, the former Jets quarterbacks coach who shuffled up to Buffalo with Rex Ryan, told the Bills’ web site that Smith “killed us” last season and his play “cost us.”

“Rex and I talked about it, he had some inconsistency and the up and down part is what killed us,” Lee told the Bills Website. “He would get loose with the football. We played good enough defense over there to win both years, but his play it’ll cost you and it cost us.”


It’s only been a couple of weeks since Lee was Smith’s position coach and he’s already burning him. Now, Lee had some more positive things to say about Smith, but really the damage was done.

“But he also did some great things,” Lee said. “The last five games this season he was the seventh-rated passer in the league. He had a perfect passer rating in his last game at Miami. The potential and ability is there.”
