Geno Smith should just let it go at this point, but I can see why he’s still mad.

Smith went from being the starting quarterback of an improved Jets roster with playoff potential to having his jaw wired shut and losing his position.

Geno detailed his frustration to Newsday.

“I’m extremely [angry]. But I have to keep my temper down. I can’t exhibit that in the locker room, I can’t exhibit that on a daily basis. I just feel for my family more because they enjoy seeing me out there.”

Smith, who was sucker punched by IK Enemkpali over a $600, says he’s not even sure the Jets are still his team.

“You know what? I’m on the team. The guys look at me as a leader. Whether it’s my team or not, it’s Woody’s team. It’s coach Bowles’ team. And it’s a trickle-down effect,” said Smith, who weighs 215 pounds, down from 223. “You want to say, OK, it’s Fitz’s team? But that’s kind of pinning me and him against each other. We’re all in this thing together. It’s a collective bond, and it was that way when I was projected the starter and when I got hurt it was that way. And right now it’s the same way.”

After watching Ryan Fizpatrick throw for 179 yards and two touchdowns in the Jets’ 31-10 win over the Browns, all Smith can do now is continue to mature and wait for his opportunity.
