Coming out of West Virginia, quarterback Geno Smith was touted as a first-class athlete with dubious mental faculties and a problematic attitude. Such questions dropped him from the top of the draft to the second round where he landed with the dysfunctional Jets.
Prematurely thrust into the starting position under the bright lights of Gotham, Geno floundered on the field and off, losing the fans, the coaches, and apparently the locker room.
When Smith arrogantly welched on a $600 debt to a teammate IK Enemkpali after blowing off his fundraiser, the confrontation came to blows when no one restrained the DE, no one defended the QB... one broken jaw later Smith was out 6 weeks and Enemkpali was looking for new employment.
Tellingly nobody defended Geno even after the fact, with many fans/analysts touting the injury a positive for the Jets chances...while Enemkpali hooked up with former Jets coach Rex Ryan in Buffalo.
At least it may open up a new endorsement for Geno – forget the cover of Madden ’16, he’s primed to bring back classic boxing game Punch-Out! Of course it appears that Geno is more of a Glass Joe than a Mike Tyson, but it’s still fun to imagine firing up the Nintendo and pummeling a 16-bit Smith in the Jets’ locker room to vent frustration with Gang Green. Grab this fun new shirt that depicts Geno in pixilated glory on the cover of his own satirical video game.
