Geno Smith was punched by Jets teammate IK Enemkpali and Jets fan are livid. Many are placing the blame on Enemkpali.
ESPN's Cris Carter, however, says it is the quarterback's fault for putting himself in a position to be sucker-punched. Reports are surfacing that it was Smith who put his finger in the linebacker's face causing the punch to happen, but who's to say. Carter makes his stance known that Smith shouldn't be anywhere near a situation like this.
Was it stupid? Yes. Can you ever stop yourself from being sucker-punched? That's up for debate. There's a reason they call it a sucker-punch, because you're not expecting it.
Don't worry about Smith too much because he's already vowing to come back stronger.
