When Geno Smith Tweeted this I thought it was a bad idea. Just want to thank all those so called “experts” who say I can’t be an NFL QB. Thursday will be a special day but the work has only begun — Eugene Geno Smith (@GenoSmith_12) April 23, 2013 The reason being, it wasn’t the first time Geno has snapped a bit at his critics. Some of his critics were over the top in their assessments, but others were fair critiques. You have to have thick skin to be a quarterback in the NFL and can’t be overly sensitive. After not being drafted in the 1st round of the NFL Draft, Geno has decided to take his ball and go home. Geno Smith told ESPN’s Suzy Kolber that he’s heading home. Will not be back at Radio City on Friday. — Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) April 26, 2013 I can only hope this fuels Geno to become the best QB he can be. But, he can’t worry about the critics or where he eventually gets drafted, if you can play you will play. Ask Russell Wilson does he care where he was drafted now?
