I agree with Todd – stop rationalizing this behavior Dan Leberfeld

Detroit – I think it’s flat-out wrong for people to somehow blame Geno Smith for getting punched in the face.

I’m not saying he handled his financial tiff with Buffalo Bills linebacker IK Enemkpali particularly well, but there is no rationale – none – to say he somehow brought this broken jaw on himself.

“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 harms way to get sucker punched,” Cris Carter said on ESPN when the story broke yesterday.

That’s crazy. A guy shows bad leadership, so he’s somehow culpable for getting punched in the face?

I agree with Todd Bowles.

“Barring anybody messing with your kids or your family, you shouldn’t have to hit another man,” Bowles said. “Without you harming their family you shouldn’t put your hands on anybody.

“When somebody just walks up to you and just takes a shot, you know that can’t be warranted anywhere.”

That’s exactly right.
