Jets’ Smith and Milliner Make a Pair of Bold Proclamations

Jets’ Smith and Milliner Make a Pair of Bold Proclamations

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(CORTLAND, N.Y.) — The one thing the New York Jets are not short on during training camp is confidence. Second-year players Geno Smith and Dee Milliner both think they’re on the verge of stardom.
In a recent survery compiled by ESPN, Smith was ranked the worst starting quarterback in the NFL, something he plans on changing.
“The thing about it is, you have to climb up,” Smith told ESPN.com on Saturday after practice. “If I’m No. 32, by this time next year or the year after, I expect to be in the top 5.”
In his rookie year, Smith threw 12 touchdowns compared to 21 interceptions.
Meanwhile, sophomore cornerback Dee Milliner made an even bolder claim.
“The best corner in the league? Me,” Milliner told the New York Daily News in an interview Saturday. “I ain’t gonna say that somebody else is better than me.”
Milliner’s rookie season was categorized by many as inconsistent at best. He made 56 tackles in 2013 to go along with three interceptions.
