CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) - Marty Mornhinweg's offense has had a rough start to training camp for the New York Jets.

The offensive coordinator, in his second season with the Jets, is trying to get a group that appears much-improved from last year with the additions of Eric Decker and Chris Johnson through some early growing pains.

Mornhinweg is also trying to balance a quarterback situation in which Geno Smith is trying to retain his starting job in his second season, while Michael Vick understands he'll likely be the backup despite believing he can still play at a high level.

Rex Ryan says that since he is more involved in the defense, Mornhinweg is ''the right guy'' - and a guy he trusts - to make sure the offense continues to get better.
