The only game he's had this year that could be considered "subpar" was Kansas St.... the #1 team in the country. And even that performance is far better than what guys like Josh Freeman, Jake Locker, and Blaine Gabbert have had at times against teams like Nebraska.
It was about on par with the game RG3 had against Oklahoma St. last year.
Matt Barkley, Tyler Wilson, and Mike Glennon have all had numerous games against lesser teams than K-State that were far more atrocious than the lone "subpar" game Geno had against K-State.
"Subpar" compared to the 6-8 TD and 0 INT games he usually puts up? Absolutely.
