Geno Smith didn't make the trip to Detroit as the New York Jets took on the Lions, but his presence was definitely felt in the stadium.

If that's not a direct shot at Smith, then nothing is. If nothing else, the title of the song was probably pretty accurate with regards to how Smith was feeling — he likely couldn't feel his face after having surgery to repair a broken jaw.
