Geno Smith "was up in (Enemkpali's) face and pointed/touched his face," according to an anonymous source.
"Geno Smith deserved the punch" according to a witness.
"The team knows it's something we don't tolerate, something we can't stand. You don't walk up to a man and punch him in the face." - Coach Tedd Bowles
"I apologize to the Jets organization, coaches, teammates and fans, Geno and I let our frustration get the best of us, but I should have just walked away from the situation. I deeply regret and apologize for my actions. It was never my intention to harm anyone. I appreciate the opportunity I had with the Jets." - IK Emenkpali
ESPN analyst and former NFL safety Ryan Clark said, after hearing details from others, that quarterback Geno Smith was "smug" about paying Enemkpali back $600 over a plane ticket Enemkpali bought for him, leading up to when Enemkpali punched him.
Did Smith really deserve to have his jaw broken? But a more important question is why nobody is rushing to defend Smith?
