New York Jets season so far has been littered with errors. Most of them have come on the field but this week one of their most major ones came off the field.

Earlier this week, the Jets decided to reinstall Geno Smith as their starting quarterback for their home game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

To say this decision has been unpopular is an understatement. But don't take our word for it, this is the word of fans across America who have been voting in an ESPN poll which has pretty much condemned the decision by Jets head coach Rex Ryan to bring back Geno Smith.

No love for Geno

The ESPN SportsNation poll asked fans who should start quarterback for the Jets? And the results are pretty damning for Gang Green decision makers.

Out of the 239,025 fans who had voted by the time of writing, a huge 64% agreed that Michael Vick should be the starter for the Jets.

In fact, amongst all of the states in America, only West Virginia - where Geno played college football - believes that Smith should be the starter for the visit of Miami.

The stats don't lie

But before we make a proper judgement ourselves, let's take a look at this season's stats to make sure that Rex Ryan's decision is as bad as the majority of a quarter of a million fans think it is.

Geno Smith's stats so far this season simply don't lie. Geno has thrown ten interceptions, which is seven more than Michael Vick.

Unlike Smith, Vick has thrown more touchdowns than interceptions, and this is the main reason why the whole of America thinks Rex Ryan has made yet another terrible error by bringing back Smith.
