Just want to thank all those so called “experts” who say I can’t be an NFL QB. Thursday will be a special day but the work has only begun

Aware and a little weary of the slights, Geno Smith tapped back lightly Tuesday. He explained it Wednesday.
“It’s not even to get back at anyone, first of all,” he said. “It’s not about getting back at anyone. You can’t do that through Twitter. The only way to do that is to prove them wrong on the field. Basically, what I said was I want to thank them for continuing to motivate me by saying things.
“Obviously, I don’t read them, but people call me and say, ‘Did you hear this? Did you hear that?’ No. I don’t care about that stuff. But as long as it’s out there, I’ve got to stay on my A game.”
