    Wonderful Draft this year – great experience!

    My only ‘disappointment’ was Geno Smith’s ungracious interview… couldn’t he at least have acknowledged ‘support’ from Aaron Rogers during interview, instead of saying ‘I already knew that’.
    I mean, when one of the greatest QBs in NFL history reaches out to you, and everyone knows it… how about some public gratitude?

    Makes me think all the character concerns… are completely valid.

    I had the same thought about Geno. He showed me a lot when he said “I already knew that”, and it wasn’t good.

    Perfect that Geno went to the Jets. Akili Smith 2.0.

    If the Eagles want their QB’s to throw the ball accurately everytime then their QB won’t be Vick.

    Geno Smith showed his character earlier in the draft when he threatened to go home after not being taken in Round 1.
