Dan Dierdorf is right – more runs, less passes necessary Dan Leberfeld

The broadcast team of Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf will be calling the Jets-Titans on Sunday for CBS.

What does Dierdorf think of Geno Smith so far?

“Like all rookie quarterbacks, Geno Smith is going to be a work-in-progress,” Dierdorf said.  “If the Jets can get back to the formula of running the football, which is what I think they’re trying to do, and protect Geno Smith, then they have a chance (this season).

“Geno Smith is not ready to have to throw the ball 35-40 times a game and carry the team on his shoulders like that.  That’s just the way it is with rookie quarterbacks.”
