Semi-Disgraced Quarterback Geno Smith Took A Long Overdue Shot At Fully-Disgraced Radio Host Craig Carton
Some might say this is an instance of kicking someone when they are down. Those people would be spot-on. That's not to say that I disagree with Geno Smith's decision to beat a horse that's so handicapped that you'd think Craig Carton placed a fruitless 6-figure wager on it. In fact, I'm actually happy that he learned how to throw a proverbial jab after becoming a literal punchline by failing to defend himself against one. After all, there's no telling how much air time the public figure turned professional scam artist devoted to crapping all over the eventfully infamous career of a Jets' quarterback that absolutely refused to suck in silence. This series of tweets is just an example of long-belated vengeance, and who doesn't like to make light of the misfortunes of people that have spoke ill of them?!
That said, let not the magnitude of the crime that made Geno Smith finally feel free to fire back fall completely by the wayside here. You have to consider that, at one point or another, almost every person that's been tasked with objectively analyzing the sport of football has said something at least mildly derogatory about Geno Smith, and this is the first time (that I can remember) that he felt comfortable offering a rebuttal? I guess what I am trying to imply is that professional shortcomings - like everything else in this world - are relative. The fact that it took millions upon millions of dollars in ticket fraud and the accusation of running a "charity" solely to fund gambling debts for Geno Smith to publicly point down at someone else really speaks to the the shortness of the tree stump that he's using as a pedestal. Especially since he did his best to make the hypocrisy sound worse by sneaking in a (potentially fictitious) allegation of casual racism like the only person that would take notice was too busy prepping himself for life behind bars....
Again, I have no problem with Geno Smith kicking dirt on Craig Carton's grave, but we probably shouldn't forget that he sorta had to come back from the dead to do so.
