Two weeks into training camp, presumed New York Jets backup Michael Vick is keeping the pressure on Geno Smith, whom he expects to develop into one of the NFL's top young quarterbacks.

"He's going to be great," Vick said Tuesday after practice. "He's going to be 10 times better than where he was last year, and I'm looking forward to it."

The Jets have an unusual quarterback dynamic. Vick, 34, is a more accomplished player than Smith, by far, but he was signed as a free agent to push the second-year quarterback in a competition tilted heavily toward Smith.

Smith will start the preseason opener Thursday night against the Indianapolis Colts, but Vick will play at least a series with the starters, Jets coach Rex Ryan revealed. It may be Smith's job to lose, but the Jets are hedging their bet by giving Vick some quality time in the first game.

Ryan, whose offense failed to score a touchdown in this past weekend's intrasquad scrimmage, may have raised the stakes just a bit, saying he wants results.

"I want to see some production," he said. "I think we'll see it. I know [Smith] will have the command. Let's have the production, too."

Smith is having a solid if not stellar camp. He certainly hasn't done anything to lose the job. He showed his confidence by recently saying he expects to be a top-five quarterback in a year or two.
