    Two words:

    Ryan Leaf

     



    except that Ryan Leaf was the second pick which helped fuel his entitled mentality.  Smith may actually wind up with the appropriate chip on his shoulder. 

     

    What I am interested in is whether or not his fired agent actually told Smith that he would be the first pick and if so, was it out of fear of being fired or just to stroke Smith.  



    The agent probably called him a baby and smith got mad.

    I actually think Sanchez was better coming out of college. Not by much. 

    I'd put it this way. Coming out of college, IMO

    Barkley > Locker (TEN) > Sanchez > Smith

    They would have been better off getting Alex Smith

    Or trading for Matt Flynn. Even signing Cassel and then trading back from 13 would have been better.

     

    They're on a 5 year plan. CLEARLY. That's not even debatable, so why would you start off by knee jerking a pick of Geno Smith?

    Phat Rex is not here right now because he's mortified.  He will try to sneak back in with a new board name, but anyone defending this Jets draft is a moron.

    Milliner with talent is fine but he has had 5 surgeries and then you reach in a crappy 1st rd draft followed by a Geno Smith panic pick??

    I hate the Jets, but I seriously want to cry mercy and help them at this point.  




    No, this is too entertaining. Anyone that would fire their agent for not getting drafted high enough demonstrates two characteristics, incredible ego and incredible stupidity.

    What does he think , teams draft on how well the player PR machine works?

    Maybe stupidity and ego are the perfect combination to make it  NY..but as was pointed out earlier, the way he was disturbed by not going early enough means he will be a basket case after reading the first NY Post article on him after he throws an int or loses a game.

    Re: Cannot Be Made Up (Geno Smith)

    The hilarity of this is Ryan Mallett, is without question the best prospect available in 2013 and they actually use their 2nd rd pick, without trading back from the first, to take Geno Smith. LOL!

    My god. If I was a fan of that franchise, I woul literally stop following the team or following the Giants.

    It's so bad, no one can figure out how or why they are so bad with this, other than it being Woody Johnson behind it all. 

     

     

    Woody Johnson is a meddler, no doubt, he may be the reason for much of the stupidity coming out of there.

    Kind of think teams in the AFC east would not be considered by the Pats as potential trade partners for Mallett anyway.

    I think they took the first RB off the board didnt they?  Dalton has all the pieces, he could win the division.   



    Yeah, they also have that dynamic Green-Ellis guy. What could Brady do with players like that...

    The Jets deserve this. Why? Perhaps, it goes all the way back to the selection of Joe Namath in the mid 60's. The Jets chose flash over substance. Of course, Broadway Joe is lionized in Jets lore, serving as the icon for the organization, it's lone proud moment. But that moment was never real. Namath was a boozer/womanizer who could not sustain anything beyond that 1 Superbowl boast and win. Yet Namath and the Jets became standbearers for the AFC (AFL) equality with the NFC. 

    Was this impulsive, empty myth something to base the whole franchise on? What effect did it have? What karma did it create? Is it what drew a "meddler" like Woody Johnson to buy the team?

    The Pats were trying to change their karma at many points but it took the stability of the Krafts and the hiring of solid management/aka Bill Parcells and bringing in a solid QB like Drew Bledsoe to finally ring out the losing energy.

    aww c'mon. Even if that is true (about Mallet), no way are the Pats and Jets making a trade. Mallet is NOT available to the Jets.

    Still, the Geno Smith situation is without doubt becoming another inept organizational display by the Jets. Rusty was definitely one of the first to predict the Jets complete downfall so credit where credit is due...

    [/QUOTE]

    Right on! Rusty deserves credit for analyzing the organizational downfall of the Jets due to the cap situation, Sanchez and Tebow fiascos and overall poor management. Also, I think he is right about the success of the Pats 2013 draft and is willing to put himself out there proudly about it.

    Russ, you could really lead the way on this board with your contributions and insight if you just toned down the personally insulting remarks toward other posters. Why not give it a try?

    Geno Smith had he been drafted by a solid organization would be fine, particularly a West coast offense like SF, Green Bay etc... on the Jests he is in for a beating because they're so dysfunctional and the fan base has zero patience.

    Rumor has it, his agent took away his Legos in the green room (for moping too much) and told him he was to march his butt right to bed without a snack and without watching iCarly, when he got home.

    This apparently didn't sit too well with him.
