    A Rodgers was the man who convince Geno Smith to stay. Pretty much told him to man up. So Whatever Geno Smith says after the fact is him just trying to save face. Yea Kirwan might have talk to him in the morning but it took A Rodgers right after the first day of the draft to talk some sense in Geno staying.

    Geno would be best served just being quiet and doing his work. Whatever he says to the media will be spun in a negative way at this point.

    Because Geno said what?

    Pat Kirwin is NOT Geno Smith.

    Though I do agree, the press has an agenda.

    'and the morning' ? you mean in the morning? which morning? of the draft? he said he was leaving at the end of the day not in the morning. it's on record. and so are the conversations with Rodgers.

    let the revisionist history begin

    edit:

    Pat Kirwan ‏@PatKirwanCBS 10h
    Seems like many ganging up on Geno Smith.I was with him the 2nd morning of the draft and he never indicated he was leaving NY until drafted
    Expand Reply Retweet Favorite More
    so he was with him the day after he already changed his mind to come back - LOL I guess Kirwan missed the report of his own network from the night before where they reported Smith said he was leaving

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/blog/ey...raft-on-friday

    as well as that of ESPN, NFLN, and who knows who else


    Feeling something akin to what one can only imagine is a combination of getting picked last in a school-yard game and being stood up on a date on national television, Smith at first was reportedly headed home after the first round.

    Enter Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

    Though it’s not clear whether Rodgers, who wasn’t called in 2005 draft until the No. 24 pick, got through to the young signal caller, Smith will be at Radio City Music Hall for the second and third rounds which take place Friday night, according to NFL.com.

    I think that's probably what happened as well.

    Geno needs to do what he is doing now, lay low. When camp opens, show up, work really hard, study his playbook, pester his QB coach and OC all the time for help, and not complain whether he starts or not.

    I think it's just as well that Geno was thinking of leaving, and then manned up and decided to stay. Some people naturally are oblivious to their situation (Think Tebow), and some people shrink from conflict(think Sanchez). Geno realized he was being humiliated, and he reacted. Then he took advice and rethought his position. This is rare, and hardly an immature response. I think the whole thing is being blown out of proportion, but this is exactly what I want in a QB. Think Tebow continuing to think he's a good QB and ignorantly keeping his head in the sand. Then think of Sanchez being put in a situation to fail and accepting his fate. Losing his confidence until he cannot make a decision, except to hide. As I said, it doesn't mean much, but it's certainly not a bad thing to be emotional, but realistic, open to criticism, and able to seek out new perspective, and change your responses. Don't tell me he knows it all, and will not listen to anyone, and then blast him for this.

    A Rodgers said it happened. This isn't important because he didn't get drafted and wanted to take his ball and go home. BOO Hoo. If he couldn't!t handle this disappointment , how is he going to handle the pressure of playing in the New York Media market. A Rodgers was there for him this time , who will be there for him the next time to talk some sense into him. I pray that he he doEsn't pull a Vince Young and come missing after a bad game.

    that's plausible response and we just have to see if that is the case.

    This whole fascination with Geno wanting to leave the draft is comical. What 22 year old kid who had higher expectations would not be frustrated and disappointed with the way the draft went for him? Does it really matter if he was upset for a while and then cooled off and changed his mind. You guys need to think back to when you were 22 and how you handled adversity. Then imagine that adversity was being televised to tens of millions across the country in primetime.

    For his sake let's hope he gets lots of time to sit on the bench and mature into an adult, like years. And God forbid he ever gets a queasy stomach during a game and needs to settle it and makes the earth shattering fatal flaw of taking a bite of food on the sideline.

    Actually, it's pretty stupid, on every level. If he wanted to leave, why shouldn't he? How and why is it an issue?

    But my point is one guy says he was going to leave and talked him into staying and a Raider fan with Jet obsessions runs with that.

    Another reporter says he wasn't going to leave and that Raider fan or those who don't like him say its BS.

    No one knows and it really doesn't matter, doesnt mean a thing and will be long forgotten in a short period of time.

    Better yet, there are "fans" who actually believe this means something when it comes to his ability to play football.

    Sanchez, and Tebow. I guarantee you that Sanchez would have sulked, and Tebow would not have even noticed. He would have been thankful just for the experience of being there, and getting to come back for another day. I know neither would have been angry, because neither of them got angry for being benched.
