New York Jets quarterbacks coach David Lee has seen a lot to like from Geno Smith, despite a "hot and cold" first nine games by the rookie.

Lee has been an instrumental part of Smith's development from the day the Jets drafted the former West Virginia star in the second round in April. Smith has praised Lee along the way for helping him adapt to life as an NFL starting quarterback.

The road has been far from smooth, with impressive moments and frustrating mistakes. Smith's performance has mirrored the team's 5-4 start with a curious trend of alternating good games and bad games, wins and losses.

But Lee says Smith is improving weekly and he feels good about the rookie's future with the Jets.
