New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith has revealed that he is still confident in his ability to lead his side despite being benched last week.
However, Ryan has admitted that Smith will be his starter this week against the Oakland Raiders.
"It's hard for people to believe that with the tough stretch that we've had," Smith told the New York Daily News.
"But, that's just the confidence that I have in myself. I know for a fact that my teammates and coaches have that same confidence in me, so that's why I believe that."
Smith has thrown eight touchdowns but has thrown a league-high 19 interceptions this season for the Jets.
