Before even being selected in last month's NFL draft, Geno Smith was already engaging his critics, "thanking" them via Twitter. But after dropping into the second round and then changing agents just days later, the critics shouted louder and louder and Smith responded in kind. Despite all of the back-and-forth, there is still football to be played and the future of a franchise to consider.

Critics too harsh?
Smith's says in response to the anonymous sources that he has thick skin and he doesn't worry about what people are saying.
Boom or bust?
There was little agreement on the QBs in the draft. EJ Manuel ranked sixth among QBs and was taken ahead of the No. 1-ranked Smith.
