Geno Smith wants to learn from first New York Jets start

New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith says that he hopes to be able to learn from his first start in the NFL.

Geno Smith has described his first start for the New York Jets as a "learning experience".

The rookie quarterback threw three interceptions and gave away a safety during the team's overtime pre-season win over the New York Giants.

The 22-year-old told the team's website: "I don't do grades, but overall I think this is just another learning experience for me, lots of teaching tape.

"It felt good to be out there with my teammates competing once again, and it was a great job, a good team win.

"I felt pretty comfortable, felt relaxed sitting back there in the pocket. Other than those mistakes, which I put entirely on myself, I felt pretty relaxed out there."

Smith is competing with Mark Sanchez to be the team's starter for the 2013 season.
