Looking for the latest news from around the NFL? Our Insiders got you covered.

Ryan was noncommittal to starting Smith after the Jets' 19-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Smith was 9 of 22 for 127 yards and was intercepted twice and sacked three times.

Over his last six games, Smith has thrown 10 interceptions and one touchdown pass. Ryan insists Monday, however, that the team's problems are ''certainly not on one guy.''

But some fans and media have called for inexperienced backup Matt Simms to start for the Jets (5-6), who have lost two in a row and seen their playoff chances take a big hit.
