pasted below from the game recap. Hope he's dead wrong about the long-term outcome but some points in there, at least areas to look for improvement in as the season goes along... ----- I’m not sure why any of you are fighting me on this Geno Smith (20-39 for 159 yards, 0 TD/2 INT) thing. He is a bad NFL QB. I see what Smith is doing quite clearly, and watching him with David Nelson (8 rec. for 80 yards on 12 targets) and Jeff Cumberland (1 rec. for 9 yards on 2 targets) only confirms things to my eyes. Fraudulent NFL QBs can exist the way Geno is right now—I think he is petrified in the pocket, and wants the ball out of his hands ASAP…like a Matt Leinart or Blaine Gabbert. The way you can “get by” in the NFL with that issue, and have some success for a game here and there, is to identify your tallest WR/TE, and no matter what happens, pre-snap, you know you are going to him. If you throw it high enough, most times either the WR/TE will make a great leaping catch or the ball sails incomplete. Either outcome is great for the QB—you are a genius if the catch is made, and no INT humiliation if not. In fact, you are seen as a QB “who is not afraid to go deep.” However, the QBs internal fear is actually at the core of it. What Geno Smith doesn’t do well is sit in the pocket, make three reads, and pick the best one under duress…or look off safeties, or make a bunch of play changes at the line of scrimmage. He is making a living on one/no read plays–quick slants, dump passes, and deep balls. He avoids the middle or quick timing sideline outs—when he does throw into his personal no-man’s land…that’s where the pick sixes start mount up. This strategy of Geno’s will work on and off, but as we get enough data results, we will all look back and judge him a fraud. Right now, he’s a rookie, so analysts will fill the air with “he’s a kid” and “he just needs to gain more experience.” He is a fraud, and it will take two years before anyone admits it. So anytime Geno has a plausible game, spare me your emails—just copy and paste this response, and send it to yourself, and we’re cool: …You are wrong. What you see in Geno this week is a hoax, perpetrated by fawning announcers pushing a hype bubble because that’s what they are paid to do. Do not believe this hype. Please email me back in 9-12 months and admit I was right all along.
