Predetermined reads were the problem Dan Leberfeld

Geno Smith’s struggles this year were related to predetermined reads. The announcement was made by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

“Usually a quarterback is able to drop back, go through his reads then deliver the ball. I am told that Geno Smith was informed of his reads, told, ‘You need to throw the ball here on certain plays,'” Rapoport said. “The most egregious example came on an interception on a pass intended for Percy Harvin that Stephon Gilmore, the Bills corner, picked off. Smith was told; ‘This is where you need to throw the ball.’ And obviously, for a quarterback who is now taking a breather last game and this game, may have hurt his development a little bit.”
