geno smith in trouble with jets

When you’re the new kid on the block just be quiet and play. That’s what Geno Smith is learning. After predicting the New York Jets would make the playoffs, Geno learned firsthand what it means to shut and play, as he was quickly reprimanded by the Jets for his outlandish prediction.

“I’ve already gotten in trouble for saying some things about playoffs and things, which I don’t regret,” Smith said Sunday on Sirius XM Radio. “I don’t think I’ll go as far as being as bold as Joe was.”

 
“I don’t think I’m a bad guy,” he said. “I don’t think I’m some of the things they try to make me out to be. It’s a part of the media. The one thing that I understand is you can’t take it personally. Those guys have jobs and the key to their jobs is to sell papers and to keep the fans looking. So they’re going to spin things and try to make an interesting story out of something that may not be so interesting.”

Did Geno mean any harm when he made that bold statement? Of course not, but as a rookie, whom isn’t guaranteed a starting position as a quarterback, those words should have never left his mouth. Last year the Jets were terrible, and I’m not sure if they acquired enough pieces to propel them from their previous position.

Smith will have his hands full as he competes for the starting quarterback position, which he will be up against Mark Sanchez, Greg McElroy and Matt Simms.

New York City will chew you up and spit you out if you make promises you can’t deliver. Geno needs to keep his head in the playbooks, and keep his comments to the media at a minimum.

    He’s in over his head, its amazing how he keeps making headlines and Eli Manning (2X SB winner) is never in the papers up here. Wrong city for this kid.

      Look up the word nigger and you will find that you are the nigger in this conversation. He’s just a stupid kid that will ultimately pay for those comments but you my “Nigger” will always be a nigger because of your ignorance so your monkey mouth will always be open for shit to fall out and shit to enter. Get a life you loser!!!!!

    I’ll give him two, maybe three seasons at most before he is out of the NFL. He’s just another diva who thinks his stuff doesn’t stink. His actions already have spoken words and NOT good ones. His mouth isn’t much better.
