Manesh Mehta craps all over Geno Smith- WOW

DanMetroMan : 3/13/2017 12:15 pm
"Smith's weekend meeting with Giants brass prompted a hearty chuckle across the league. NFL teams are yearning to win the Geno Sweepstakes as much as they're yearning to win a couple bucks in a scratch-off lotto ticket.

Smith might be the least equipped person to play in New York, an immature and insecure guy filled with self-delusion. His litany of missteps on and off the field for the past four years has been well-chronicled."

He goes ALL IN on Smith

Still hoping the Giants

can sign McCown as backup..He's be perfect, just in case he's needed for a few games or so
Did Geno piss in his cornflakes?

I get that Geno sucked with the Jets, but no need for the media hatchet job.

I just said the EXACT same thing to someone. While Geno Smith may or may not be a dick etc the article seemed like something someone with a vendetta would wright. Borderline unprofessional.
FWIW there's been some controversy  
Enzo : 3/13/2017 12:28 pm : link
surrounding this particular writer.
Good grief.  
FranknWeezer : 3/13/2017 12:31 pm : link
He went hard after his agent, too. She seems young and lacking experience, but it's not her fault that Geno is, well, Geno.

Wish we knew the real story about what Geno did to Manish to wind him up like this.
Mehta must've been bullied  
bceagle05 : 3/13/2017 12:31 pm : link
by one too many jocks while growing up. A lot of those types in the media. If the Giants sign Geno you won't even notice he's here after the preseason. Think the average fan can pick Josh Johnson or Ryan Nassib out of a lineup?
seriously  
giants#1 : 3/13/2017 12:35 pm : link
no idea why he went after Geno's agent too. Maybe she tried using him to try and drive leverage up?

Either way, I'm far from a Geno fan, but this article made me hope he goes somewhere and becomes a decent NFL starter.
unprofessional  
Matt in SGS : 3/13/2017 12:41 pm : link
hit job on the whole situation. And I don't give two craps about Geno Smith or his agents. But he strikes me as the type of reporter, who if I were a player and he was covering my team, I wouldn't give him the time of day.

+1
WOW  
Joeguido : 3/13/2017 1:00 pm : link
He really went after Smith....something else must have happened for all this negativity....
Geno is an untalented turd  
averagejoe : 3/13/2017 1:08 pm : link
and was another wasted pick for the Jests. Clearly this writer has had enough of Geno's act. The article was unprofessional and vindictive. Does not mean it's not true.
I don't want Geno Smith anywhere near the Giants,  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 3/13/2017 1:12 pm : link
but this guy is a massive douche. He does 15-20 hit pieces a year... WTF?!?!?!?
Wow. What a POS  
Vin R : 3/13/2017 1:13 pm : link
The writer that is.

The reality is that New York is no place for a flawed, thin-skinned quarterback.


That should go for reporters as well
mass Jet fan suicide:  
Victor in CT : 3/13/2017 1:23 pm : link
Geno signs here, becomes Eli's successor in 3 years and is wildly successful :-)

Good writers don't use the power of the press to get revenge
Mehta should get disciplined
that article is harsh  
32_Razor : 3/13/2017 1:37 pm : link
Mehta should know better than to write an article like that.

Click, click, click  
TheGhostofBlueGuy : 3/13/2017 1:56 pm : link
and you dopes went for it. SMH
Yea, the article is harsh  
Glover : 3/13/2017 2:05 pm : link
but Metah cited plenty of reasons why he is so down on Smith. Barring the media from a nobody because of the anniversary of said nobody getting his jaw busted for being a dickhead, yea, ugly article for an ugly, pretty worthless situation.
never saw a thread on hubbuch  
Ned In Atlanta : 3/13/2017 2:26 pm : link
getting canned at NYP. Politics aside guy was a mega douche
Bad writer, constantly bashes the team  
weeg in the bronx : 3/13/2017 3:16 pm : link
This is the guy who killed Rex for going to see his son play in college on bye week. Until he was called out as an ahole. Then of course he just killed Revis on his way out the door. Does anyone in that locker room respect this guy?
Scarry that the Giants are actually serious about him  
nicky43 : 3/13/2017 3:21 pm : link
Are they nuts?
Manesh Mehta  
Peter from NH (formerly CT) : 3/13/2017 3:26 pm : link
is not well liked (understatement) in the Jet locker room. I think he actually fuels some of the dissension in that room.

But if you were writing about the Jets, what would you write about? Their road to success?

Last year was a disaster for the franchise. The fan base is perpetually negative. He is just reflecting his readers.
I don't know what the Giants are thinking with this Smith crap  
djm : 3/13/2017 3:40 pm : link
Geno doesn't belong in the NFL. You can see it. He's not an NFL caliber QB. Odds are he never will be. I har Jets fans talk about this kid like he's the great big unknown with untapped potential. He got his face caved in by a teammate and if you read between the lines, no on the team cared.

The Giants probably just wanted to talk to him and see what he was all about. Nothing to see here. GEno won't start in more than 8 NFL games before he's out of the league for good.

Another gem of a 2nd round pick for the Jets. They like to waste 2nd rounders on shitty QBs. "Can't get one in round 1, let's use a 2nd on some slob and pray he's the goods" --Jets.
Smith  
djm : 3/13/2017 3:40 pm : link
probably blew off Mehta at some point. Payback's a bitch.
I really didn't think the article was bad  
djm : 3/13/2017 3:47 pm : link
if it's true--not sure it is though. But i've seen far worse.

Gary Myers obliterated Coughlin when he was hired here. To make matters worse it was false. We kill Myers now and some did then but for all we know Smith is a baby. The signs are there.
