Game Of Thrones author George R.R. Martin is not a Geno Smith fan

Tuesday November 11th, 2014

George R.R. Martin, author of the books that have become the hit Game of Thrones television show, is also a diehard fan of the New York Jets, which means he has been having a pretty rough season.

Martin posted to his LiveJournal page about the team getting its first victory since Week 1 on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and it seems he is not to happy with Geno Smith's performance.

For the moment, I will enjoy the win, and wonder what might have happened if Rex had only benched Geno Smith earlier.  (I was distressed to see Geno back as second string, and Matt Simms inactive. Simms showed more in his brief appearance last week than Geno has all season).

Given Martin's penchant for doing away with major characters, it makes sense that he would want the Jets struggling former starter done away with quickly.

Sunday wasn't all wins for Martin either, as he also supports the struggling New York Giants who fell to the Seattle Seahawks.
