Geno Smith blasts ‘snake’ Rex Ryan again
Rex Ryan is once again being blasted by one of his former players for some comments on ESPN’s “First Take.”
Ryan disputed whether New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick would have had the level of success he’d had if he had a different quarterback than Tom Brady. Ryan used his former quarterback, Geno Smith, as an example, and not in a positive light.
"Give him Geno Smith … and let's see how many Super Bowls he would have won."

That did not go over well with Smith, who was Ryan’s starting quarterback on the Jets for two seasons.
My momma never liked dude he been a snake.. and y’all glorify it.. should’ve got fired after yr1.. truth is we won 8 games after ESPN had us winning two and he got his job back.. somehow I’m caught up in a feud and I’m the scapegoat.. Same guy that drafted me#TheBusiness

It is no secret that Smith does not like Ryan, and Ryan has not been publicly impressed with Smith. Every time Ryan brings up Smith’s name, Smith fires back.
Ryan isn’t shy about voicing controversial opinions that get him in trouble. Judging by the mutual lack of respect between Ryan and Smith, it seems unlikely that the former coach will be apologizing for this one.
