According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, Smith got confused by the whole Eastern/Pacific time-zone thing.
Smith and a few teammates opted to go to a movie, and they were “messed up” by the three-hour difference between New York and San Diego.
Per Cimini, coach Rex Ryan always keeps the team on Eastern time when playing on the West Coast. But Smith’s cell phone automatically adjusted to its location, as most cell phones do. And so it’s fairly common for at least one Jets players to show up late for something when playing in the Pacific time zone.
I am sorry, but his performance and attitude lately has been horrible. He will not accepct responsibilty and needs to be benched. At this point, Rexn Ryan’s chair is hot, he better wake up.
