I like Sheldon Richardson and usually agree with all the spirited statements he makes, but I can’t back him on this one. Richardson has been a vocal advocate of Geno Smith’s all season.
Richardson ripped Jets fans for giving up on Geno Smith, and dubbed them “quitters,” while addressing the media.
“They’re quitters,” said Richardson, per ESPN’s Jane McManus. “That’s how I feel. You go all-in with a guy, why not give him his chance?”
Richardson believes Smith still has the potential to morph into a long-term NFL starter.
“Even though he does decent some, people think he does horrible,” Richardson said. “He’s still the guy at the end of the day and I applaud him for that. The position he’s in and the scrutiny he gets (is a lot).”
