I don’t think it was the agents fault that Geno Smith was drafted in the 2nd Round.
I know I say this a lot, but before you blame someone else, look in the mirror. The mirror never lies. I will be perfectly frank, Geno’s attitude hasn’t been the best. I don’t know how that is going to translate on the field, but always been wary of someone who likes to pass the blame.

As suspected, I'm told a big part in Geno's decision was his displeasure w/ where he was drafted. Doubt any agent could've helped that one.

According to the New York Daily News, Smith believed he should have been the 1st pick in the overall draft. His agents told him that wasn’t realistic, but he fired them anyway.
Like it or not, this are red flags. What happens when the New York media gets on him for his first 3 INT game? How is he going to react then?
