some impressions:


GENO SMITH

Happy feet.
Little bounces, constantly resetting nervously, unnecessarily. Doesn't look scared, almost more impatient.

Does not look off of his primary read.

Erratic throws.

Poor awareness of pressure.

Poor awareness of escape lanes.

When he sets, his throws are accurate and sharp.

Can make plays under heavy pressure. Constantly shifting feet are not a sign that he chokes, but rather a technical complaint.

Stats definitely benefit from the YAC ability of his receivers.

Tipped passes.

Can make some off-balance throws.

Is always waiting for his receivers to get open. You'll see him in the pocket, waiting for the best moment to throw the guy he's decided he wants to throw to.

Throws some nice deep balls.

Has ok speed, but is definitely not a scrambler. I'd say less of a scrambling threat than Alex Smith. Closer to Sam Bradford.

EJ MANUEL

Decisive as a runner. Knows he's big. Runs like Cam Newton.

Amazing athlete. Can really run with it. Can escape pressure and make a play. Very agile and has balance.

Lacks accuracy on his deep ball.

Good touch on intermediate throws; screens and crossing routes are effective. FSU calls a lot of short passes. Not many NFL throws.

Looks like he can make deep throws, but is not consistent.

Serious accuracy issues. FSU's offense masks his flaws. Similar to Terrelle Pryor.

MIKE GLENNON

Tall with a good build. Moves well, but not a scrambler by any means. Almost reminds me of Eli Manning.

Throws ropes.

Will stand in and take hits to make throws. Will also force throws into double and triple coverage. Does this a lot. Has a lot for passes contested.

Does a good job of hitting receivers in stride on crossing routes so that they don't lose speed - important when defenders are trailing. Good accuracy overall on crossing routes at different levels.

Reads the field. Will look to his right, then to his left, and back to his right. Finds the open receiver.

converted a 4th and 2 with less than 2:00 remaining down 6 to #3 FSU

then a poor decision.

then a 4th and 10 conversion.

Then a TD on 4th and goal.

I was thinking earlier in the game his tipped passes and interceptions reminded me of the way Matt Ryan would throw them, trying too hard to put a football in places most college quarterbacks can't, but he can often enough that he's willing to test that boundary frequently - in pressure situations, that means he's already accustomed to just throwing it in there.

Think Glennon's the no. 1 quarterback I've seen so far this year.
