Though more than a few analysts had predicted he would be Top 10 pick, Geno Smith sat around all night on Thursday without being selected in the first round of the NFL Draft. In fact, the only quarterback selected was the Bills’ surprising choice of E.J. Manuel with the 16th pick. Rather than hang around on the second day to see which team swoops him up (presumably) in the 2nd round, Geno told the Matron Saint that he won’t be coming back to Radio City Music Hall for Day 2 of the draft.
Because trolls have been fond of making sweeping claims about Geno Smith’s character for months leading up to the draft, it’s only right that Mike Florio used the news as an excuse to drub him some more.
If Smith doesn’t return, he’ll be confirming in the minds of many that he can’t show grit and resolve under pressure. That he’ll sink his head and slump his shoulders when the team is 14 points behind in the third quarter. That he’ll pout if he’s not the starter or if he gets benched. That he’ll complain about the use of too many running plays when he prefers to air it out.
“HE’LL ME-FIRST GLORY BOY UNTIL THERE’S NO GLORY FOR ANYONE ELSE WHEN IT SHOULD REALLY GO TO THE GRITSTERS.”
“IF I DON’T GET TO PIE GENO SMITH IN THE FACE AND PEE ON HIS SHOES, HE’S JUST SHOWING THE WORLD THAT HE’S A SULLEN, DETACHED WHIMPERY BITCH. THAT’S WHAT SEPARATES THE GREATS FROM THE BUSTS.”
“THIS MAN IS SHOWING GREAT DISRESPECT TO RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL, WHICH IS ONE OF THE NATION’S GREAT VENUES TO SIT AROUND AND NOT GET WHAT YOU WANT. GENO SMITH OWES THE CITY OF NEW YORK AN APOLOGY!”
Mike Florio is the worst.
