Geno Smith Goes Home and Will Not Return to NYC for 2nd Day of Draft

Geno Smith Struggle Face

When Geno Smith Tweeted this I thought it was a bad idea.

The reason being, it wasn’t the first time Geno has snapped a bit at his critics. Some of his critics were over the top in their assessments, but others were fair critiques.

You have to have thick skin to be a quarterback in the NFL and can’t be overly sensitive. After not being drafted in the 1st round of the NFL Draft, Geno has decided to take his ball and go home.

I can only hope this fuels Geno to become the best QB he can be. But, he can’t worry about the critics or where he eventually gets drafted, if you can play you will play.

Ask Russell Wilson does he care where he was drafted now?

*UPDATE*

After having some time to think about it and making the proper changes to his hotel and flight information for his family has decided to stay in NYC and attend 2nd round.

    Russel Wilson cares now because he is stuck with shitty rookie contract

    • rammad90 says:

      Yes, Russell Wilson cares very much his draft position is costing him millions of dollars.

      • Dame Murray says:

        And when his contract is up…He’ll make it all back with the next one…if he plays at his current level

      • Payton says:

        Yes, he does care and yes, it does matter. He has to play good for the next two seasons at least to get the next “max” contract.

  2. Norm Miller says:

    I understand that chip on his shoulder. The critics while in some peoples opinion are fair, are complete and total asses. They make assumptions as to the physical make up of what it takes and by standards set by quarterbacks around the nation who play the game and are successful. Even in those standards they are wrong. Gotta feel bad for the kid. He is still a kid and those critics are nothing but naysayers and any asshole can be a hater and that’s exactly what they do and that’s exactly who they are.

  3. Tm Z says:

    Geno I see this as “(delayed gratification)” use this as inspiration. It will only be a stumbling block for you if you make it one.

  4. Sammie Tong says:

    This is probably why he wasn’t drafted in the 1st round. What an immature whiner. Suck it up, stick it out, show em what you’re made of. Don’t run home to Mommie.

  5. Randy says:

    Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!

  6. Forrest Hoffman says:

    move on Dan Marino was the sixth qb drafted in his draft.

  7. Jesus Jones says:

    Just waiting for the race card to be played next.

  8. Tom Berkelman says:

    This is his idea of “adversity”??? Geno has to handle set-backs with greater composure than this; his body language said it all. Suck it up, big guy. Look at the bigger world around you and place “one day” in a better perspective. It’s not the end of the world and everyone should have your future.

  9. Black Knight says:

    Smith sounds like a cry baby. Not conducive to a good career in the NFL.
