Geno can ball.

JRTPlaya21 09-15-2012 07:07 PM

I like him a ton more then Logan Thomas. Quote me.

Cigaro 09-15-2012 07:13 PM

I absolutely love him as a college quarterback....but I am not so sure as pro prospect. I think he certainly could translate his game to the pros, but I am just not sure yet.

I'm a big Geno Smith fan. Dude can play.

Can he play, or can he ball vidae?

descendency 09-15-2012 08:31 PM

I'm scared of the high school offense he plays in.

I think you were right the first time. He can BALL.

He will be a top 12 pick in the NFL Draft.

FUNBUNCHER 09-15-2012 10:22 PM

I think Geno Smith ends up being one of the top 3 QBs selected in 2013.
Top 10-15 pick.

The better season RGIII has for the Skins, the higher Geno Smith's draft stock rises.

Mike Shanahan is deep in his lab at Ashburn, Va and is attempting to reinvent offensive football in the pros.
He's trying to combine elements of the WCO, the spread option zone read and his ZBS run blocking scheme.
He's already stated that he believes the extended handoff in the spread option is better than the normal play action in the pros because the QB has the benefit of seeing and reading the defense and can option to keep the ball or give it to the RB while on the move.

If the SKins new hybrid offense produces a 9+ win season this year, it's going to be copied. ANd if there's one QB in this draft whose game most resembles RGIII's, it's Geno Smith.

Pump the brakes man...it was one game for the Redskins. Teams know what they are going to do moving forward and defensive coordinators can adjust.

That's like drafting Graham Harrell high because of Peyton Manning.

FUNBUNCHER 09-15-2012 10:39 PM

Pump the brakes on what?? No one said anything about making the playoffs or winning the division.

What's significant is Shanahan is attempting to construct a hybrid pro style zone option read offense. If this new scheme is productive on the NFL level, there are certain QBs who are going to be perfect to run it.

And the league saw a fraction of the SKins playbook against the Saints.

The separation between Geno Smith and RGIII isn't nearly as great as it is between Manning and Harrell.

I guess folks are going to have to wait until WVU's pro day to discover that Geno Smith has outstanding arm strength, unlike Harrell.

Vikes99ej 09-16-2012 12:01 AM

Haven't been paying attention, does WVU still run that ****** spread option offense?

Well that depends when you stopped paying attention. It's not all that ****** now with Holgerson.

I said this in the preseason, when the hype was high on Thomas. Hop on the bandwagon but it's getting pretty crowded. I think more people agree with this right now more than ever.

703SKINS202 09-16-2012 12:30 AM

People need to check out his go to man and guy from my signature. Had 13 caches today for 173 yards and 3 TD's.

San Diego Chicken 09-16-2012 06:32 AM

Smith may be moving up simply because none of the projected first round picks at QB are playing very well. Barkley has been very unimpressive and ordinary, Wilson's team is in utter shambles, Thomas was pathetic against Pitt, and Bray is just a porous desision maker.

Smith is very accurate with great awareness and preparation. Very advanced at reading defenses. He looks comfortable in the pocket at all times but has quick enough feet to escape pressure. Not a whole lot to dislike about the guy.

kwilk103 09-16-2012 10:35 AM

Geno Smith's QB rating is 209.8, highest ever for a season is 191.8 (Russell Wilson last year). Smith 66-75 88.0% 734 yards 9.8/per 9-TD 0-INT 209.8/rating.


and to the poster who asked if he plays in the spread option, no

wvu runs the air raid, made famous by hal mumme and mike leach

bored of education 09-16-2012 11:37 AM

Bailey is no joke but Geno is legit. He will be a top 12 pick regardless of how Barkley and Wilson fair.

Weeden was a first round pick in the exact same offense. I dont think it matters anymore.

Babylon 09-16-2012 12:22 PM

Have to temper the enthusiasm a little seeing as they've played two cupcakes so far.

Leon Sandcastle 09-16-2012 12:41 PM

Geno Smith v Tyler Bray for 1st QB taken this year.

True but he more than held his own v LSU's dominating defense last year.
