Geno Smith keeps starting job

Smith received the Mark Sanchez treatment during Sunday's home game, as he was booed several times. Simms, who began training camp as the No. 4 quarterback on a four-man depth chart, received a rousing welcome.

Smith still believes he's the right man for the job.

"It's hard for people to believe that with the tough stretch we've had, but that's just the confidence I have in myself," he said. "I know for a fact that my teammates and coaches have that same confidence in me."

If Simms was disappointed, he didn't express it. At this point in his career, he's happy to have a job. He was undrafted out of Tennessee in 2012 and spent a year out of football after failing to make the Jets as a rookie.

"I did enough to solidify that I'm still the No. 2," said Simms, the son of former New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms. "At least I didn't play myself out of my job."

Simms said he received a postgame critique from his father. Asked to repeat the positive feedback, he smiled and said, "That I didn't make it worse."

That would have been hard to do.
