07:02 AM ET 06.25 | Just how quickly can Geno Smith pick up Gang Green's offense? Smith believes he's off to a fine start as he transitions from a spread offense at West Virginia to Marty Mornhinweg's West Coast offense in New York. "I've already made a giant leap," Smith told NFL Network's Andrew Siciliano on Monday from the NFL Rookie Symposium in Aurora, Ohio. "Coming from a spread system where the biggest transition for me is going to be the footwork. It's not as if I can't do it, it's the fact that I haven't done it enough. The good amount of reps that I got in rookie camp, minicamp, OTAs has helped me make that leap and transition, and make giant strides. I have an opportunity to fight for a starting job in a great place right now, so I look forward to it."

Are you comparing yourself to the other Jets quarterbacks, Geno? Well, ummm...

Geno is his own biggest fan.

Apparently he has mastered the "Buttfumble"

Yeah, what's so hard? Take the ball. Turn 180 degrees to your right. Run back 3 steps. Turn 180 degrees to your left. Take a look at your offensive line and run towards the crack.

Brings new meaning to the terms 'hitting the hole' and 'finding a seam'.

Be careful about huge leaps in Gotham, some of those buildings are very very tall....

Next week Geno will announce that he has already won the Super Bowl and that the league should just ship the trophy over to him.

By mid-season he'll be trying to kiss Suzy Kolber on the sideline.

This will last until his first blindside hit by a 260 pound linebacker.

Which I eagerly await.

There are no Kansas' in the NFL.

A mandatory element of being a J-E-T-S QB.

That sounds like Rex Ryan's kinda guy.

I guess it's all relative isn't it? Kinda like the "tallest midget" argument.

June 25, 2013  10:14 AM ET

By hugh leap he means he's added a backflip to the Buttfumble.

But, can't he leap tall buildings in a single bound?
