This previous week in Jets camp, rookie QB Geno Smith has been an unfortunate and easy target for the media. Facing quotes from his former teammates and coaches, many are putting his character into question. As most of you know, I'm not, nor have been, the biggest Geno Smith supporter. However, when these quotes surfaced I saw this as a really unfair view of the rookie, and some things just have to be brought to light. The media has a real casual way of bending quotes into their reports, forcing biased ideas to come about in their writing. They paint a picture that isn't necessarily true, while it still is.
