Cris Carter says Geno Smith brought on the now infamous sucker punch by former Jets and new Bills linebacker IK Enemkpali. Carter states:
“It’s a lack of leadership on Geno Smith’s part that he would put himself in harm’s way to get sucker-punched.”
Okay. A player gets socked by another player over a $600 debt. Carter believes Smith should have never allowed the situation to get to the point where he would get punched. After all, as the leader of the team, he’s supposed to be smart enough to keep that thing from boiling over.
Of course, we learned this about IK Enemkpali:
Enemkpali was a 19-year-old redshirt freshman at Louisiana Tech in April 2011 when he got into a brawl with the off-duty Arcadia officer working security at Rabb’s Steak House in Ruston. The security man, Hezekiah Perry, managed to unleash pepper spray on Enemkpali.
If you brawl with someone who could kill you, what’s a starting quarterback mean to you?
I’m not surprised this dude was picked up by Rex Ryan; not one bit. I wouldn’t be surprised if the dude had actually been in contact with the Bills before the incident. It would certainly be suspicious if it was Rex Ryan’s dad, Bloody Ryan making this move. A guy with three career tackles punches out his team’s starter and you reward him by picking him up? Why, Rex? Your defense in Buffalo isn’t good enough?
How would you feel if you’re the Bills starting QB?
As if they have one.
