Hey coach. Geno here. You got a minute? Listen, I’m not trying to question your game plan or anything. And yes, I know things have gotten pretty bad for the Jets – but why the hell would you put in Geno Smith?
You know you’ve got other options, right? First off, you could keep playing Ryan Fitzpatrick, which, fair, doesn’t seem like the best idea. But you’ve also got Bryce Petty, right? That kid can throw a football. And Christian Hackenberg too! Why not give the rook a try?
I’m just trying to offer some objective advice here. “But Geno Smith,” you might be wondering. “How can you be fair and objective about playing Geno Smith when you, in fact, are Geno Smith?”
My response to that query is this: I am literally Geno Smith, and even I think there’s absolutely no reason to every play Geno Smith. I could earn millions of dollars in additional contracts and endorsements from being named a starter in the NFL, and I’m willing to turn it all away just to be a good friend.
Friends don’t let friends make these kinds of mistakes, coach. Friends don’t let friends put in Geno Smith.
