Giants’ Geno Smith Calls Rex Ryan A ‘Coward’
New York Giants quarterback Geno Smith isn’t too happy about comments made by his former head coach Rex Ryan and is clapping back accordingly.
“I did see one of my ex-coaches say he didn’t want me to be his quarterback,” Smith said after the Giants lost to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
“That really upset me. I saved his job in 2013. We fought our ass for him both years. For him to say that shows how much of a coward he is.”
Ryan, who currently is an analyst for ESPN, coached Smith while both with the New York Jets.
Ryan discussed Smith’s promotion to starting quarterback last week.
“Good for Geno, but I don’t understand it,” Ryan said, per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “Eli Manning has been a hell of a player in this league a long-ass time. He’s one of the most durable guys in the history of the sport and started a million games in a row. He’s why you got all those Super Bowl rings. For him to go out like this is odd. It’s bizarre.”
