Film Room: Geno Smith discusses his roots

Jay Z’s Life+Times released a new documentary today on quarterback Geno Smith. The 24 minute video brings Geno back to Florida where he reminisces about his upbringing and path to New York with family members and former coaches.

It’s a pretty cool piece that’s worth checking out.

So Geno was a Patriot in high school and grew up in the shadow of the stadium where the Dolphins play…..

A humble guy willing to work hard to be the best he can be....and lead  the team we love to the "promised land". Can't ask for more then that.

i almost feel like we should drafted bailey instead of winters because of how familiar and successful bailey and smith are with eachother

@rstysanchz 

or Keenan Allen instead of Winters......
or Mike Glennon or terrence Williams or Logan Ryan. There are lots of guys we could have taken instead of Winters.

This is the same junk you spouted about Sanchez.....When you think about it, Geno was awful.  No excuses.

@a57se youre right but bailey came to mind because of the video

@jake100 Sanchez had success those first 2 years with that core. The 3rd year and the dismantling of the key players, especially on offense and you see what Sanchez had to work with in the year 3 and 4 (especially bad supporting cast).


Ask any fan, if we have a better oline/WRs/RBs for 2013 season as opposed to 2012 and you will have a resounding yes.


Also Geno has the potential to make plays with his legs but as seen in this documentary and alot of his interviews, he doesn't want to make plays with his legs unless absolutely necessary.


My biggest takeway from comments like your's is that fans are blind to Geno's shortcomings and this year wasnt as good as everyone makes it in regards to his performance.

And then 3 years later, you wouldn't shut up about the putrid supporting cast and how Sanchez needed the reeses™
