Geno Smith will use another four-letter F-word today: FINE. After being caught dropping the F-bomb on heckling fans before half-time against the Detroit Lions, the NFL has apparently fined the New York Jets QB $12,000, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport:
#Jets QB Geno Smith fined $12,000 for his expletive to a fan last week, source says. Same fine amount as Johnny Manziel’s middle finger

Rapoport also noted that the fine is the same amount that was given to Cleveland Browns rookie QB Johnny Manziel when he gave to middle finger to the Washington Redskins bench during a preseason game.
Smith only completed 4 passes in the first half and was booed out of the stadium during halftime as fans chanted for QB Michael Vick to replace him. As some fans starting heckling him personally, Smith was caught on video saying “F*** you.”
