Geno Smith

Scroll down for updates...

They say a good leader earns respect by motivating others to succeed. On the other hand, a poor leader breeds contempt because everyone disrespects him to his face, resulting in low morale on a team.

NFL Hall of Fame star Cris Carter thinks that's why a teammate of NY Jets quarterback Geno Smith threw a sucker punch that broke his jaw.

Imagine a Cleveland Cavaliers teammate throwing a punch at LeBron James.

Linebacker Ikemefuna “I.K.” Enemkpali (inset) threw the punch that broke Smith's jaw during a locker room altercation this morning. He was cut from the team.

“Now, I don’t know what happened, but for me it's a lack of leadership on Geno Smith's part, that he would put himself in harm's way to get sucker punched," said Carter on ESPN.

"You're the president, like CEO of the team; we can't have you fighting… If you look at the best quarterbacks in the league, they're great leaders… but when guys don't respect you, you see the likelihood for something like this happening."

Smith's jaw will require surgery. He will be out for 6-10 weeks.

UPDATE: Adam Schefter knows why Smith's jaw was broken (via Deadspin.com):

At the heart of the dispute between former Jets LB IK Enemkpali and quarterback Geno Smith is $600 that Enemkpali believed Smith owed him, per league sources. Enemkpali purchased a plane ticket for Smith to attend his July 11 football camp at Pfugerville High School in Pfugerville, Texas. However, days before the camp, a person close to Smith was killed in a motorcycle accident in Miami and Smith did not attend Enemkpali’s camp, per sources. After Smith did not attend, Enemkpali demanded that the Jets’ quarterback refund him the $600 he allegedly used to purchase a plane ticket. Smith told Enemkpali he would reimburse him the money, but he did not. Enkempali confronted Smith today about the money and the confrontation ended in a punch and broken jaw.

  • Sassy

  • DYmondgurl

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You can't expect a woman to understand the sports culture.

  • DYmondgurl

    You can be a great leader and have that one guy in the locker room that still hate ur stank a$$
    Gelly much it happens

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Make sure you have a hot plate on the table and a cold beer ready to hand him when he walks through the door. You impress men by being good in the kitchen and great in bedroom.

  • Its Me

    Stop this mess. All the years I been here, you know Im a sports head Sandra. ?

  • DYmondgurl

    Eh Q meh .... with women coaches in the NFL & NBA u dare??

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I can't see a player taking a shot at LeBron in the locker room. I can't. Maybe that's why Michael Jordan had a separate locker room from the team. Because he knew he was a poor leader?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    What women coaches? You mean tokens, don't you?

  • DDNY

    Lol. Duly noted. and he better impress me with an attitude change.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

  • DDNY

    Sandra gon tell me my man gay. with a secret tranny lover, who sneaks in my closet to try on my clothes! oh Lord

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    No, hun. An attitude change means the dopamine has faded and he's looking for the door. This is the time when men or women often cheat, because, unfortunately, they are addicted to dopamine.

  • DYmondgurl

    My fear of STDs keep my dopamine addiction in chhh-zek! Instead of cheating, I shop lol..or smoke or BOTH :)

  • Sassy

    You walked into that one

  • DDNY

    NOT THA DOPAMINE!!!!. well luckily it has not faded. we are actually starting a new phase. i am 31 he is 45+ (yea purposely). married 5 yrs. my dopamine is fading. i want sumthing exciting a yung buck. BUT I BELIEVE THAT HE IS MY SOUL MATE. JUST NOT MY FLESH MATE. if u understand.

  • DDNY

    i kno.

  • DDNY

    yea i agree.

  • Sasha586

    Girl I remember when he said Calvin Johnson wasn't a top receiver. I couldn't take him serious after that.

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Eat that a???? Use your tongue to blow his back out! He'll be yours forever????????????

  • DDNY

    I WILL NOT have crutty teeth. EWW!!

  • Its Me

    STUFF LIKE THIS. And then when folks chewed his azz to smithereens about saying that...he started trying to back track! I cant stand Cris. FOR YEARS.

  • DDNY

    OVER $600. WELL, Iwould beat ur a** over $60.00
    petty. i know

  • Its Me

    Well you know how I feel about Mike Jordan too. I hate his azz too. Passionately. I am the only UNC basketball fanatic that feels this way...and I kinda DGAF.

    HE needed his own dressing area in the locker room to have space to air his ego and arrogance out. It STINKS

  • surprise2012

    I know he may have owed him $600.00 but I'm sure that $600.00 wasn't hurting either one of their pockets. However, if he had to borrow it I don't know. These athletes don't know how so many young men wish they could be in their shoes. They've gotta do better.

  • Rio

    Sounds like you guys should have a talk...who knows where this talk will take you

  • DDNY

    yea we should. and we will. he is so good to me tho. i know he does wat no other man will. patient, gentle. we will do some searching and pray together for guidance. thnxs Rio. :) Nice to meet U

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Oop. Let me go back and delete that fish in the sea post. I didn't realize you were married 5 years. Congrats!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    No way were these millionaires fighting over $600. No way. I need more receipts. IDC if they each make league minimum and have so much street cred, ur not jeopardizing your job over $600. Now, Mr. Suckerpuncher, if you are the type to fight over this minimal amount of money, you should be fired.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Hater. Spread those hairy cheeks and make him sing to the Gawds.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    You think Jordan was a poor leader? I think he was a selfish leader who responded by tuning/leaving you out if you didn't quickly buy into his leadership. Jordan knew he wasn't going nowhere, you were. The team was built around him.

    I do think Kobe is a poor leader. But I think he's so protected, well he was in his prime, teammates wouldn't even look at him funny, let alone touch him.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Lol. I think it's an ego thing. It's not the amount.

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    Especially when we both know it was a LOAN.its not the amount,its the principal of the matter.ijs

  • BRING THE PAYNE

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Is he in the service or did he get in trouble? No judgement at all...I probably missed it.

  • DDNY

    The latter. So good to me tho. Hey whitty. Glad he is coming back. Sometimes I wanna be with someone not so closed minded.

  • 1/8

    Athletes aren't drafted for their intelligence and civility. If people knew what those cretins were really like, no one would pay to see them play.

  • DDNY

    I know he will be down. Just need to find our "comfort spot"

  • DDNY

    And he probably would. Men are more freaky than they let on. Smdh

    It could have been $6. Run me my money.

    This is like the White House chick. Your job is gone over some mess. I know dude was making more than $600 per game. Maybe Geno was clowning him.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

  • ?E?E?M?A

    So $600 was worth losing your multimillion dollar job and not living your dreams? I've lost that before on friends who didn't go on trips I paid for at the last minute and I threw the friends away..not my life. Breaking a man's jaw though?

    #When keeping it real goes wrong

  • Queen Negus

    I got you beat, I have 3 in elementary and I do cook so they can have veggies every night. I told the schools office I am going to copy and paste (i have my glue and scissors ready) their forms this year or if she need more info look on the oldest records. LMAO
    I cant do Lunchables bc its waste of money based on they eat too much! When they hit that door its a full lunch with drinks and snack, 2 hours later a full dinner. Dont forget they had breakfast at home and lunch at school.
    P,S I make them eat that nasty school lunch and wont let them take their lunches bc they were selling them. One day they are in the carncomparing how much money they made, I took all of it and banned them for taking lunches!! Little Hustlers!!
