so reid doesnt want him because hes getting old and wants to win now. but youre saying he thinks geno is better, its just hes gunna need a few years to get there and andy doesnt want to wait...
how long is reid staying with the chiefs, 3 years? what about the GM, so he must think they can win with the same roster that won 2 games by adding a game manager veteran? the same roster that cost his predecessor his job? he must be thinking short term too, must be looking to get a SB ring and then retire.
because if thats not what you think is going on, then why would reid pass on a guy he thinks is a franchise QB for alex smith, whose ~8 years older and less physically talented than Geno?
its because he thinks geno wont be better than alex. if he thought geno would be, hed be drafting him. i dont see a more logical line of thought on this anywhere in this thread, these reasons you and Black Bolt have thrown out for reid passing on Geno make no sense if they thought Geno was better.
'very little if any foundation to his mental game'?? Please explain.
You made this critique more than once.
Any QB who only throws 6 INTs on over 500 attempts and completes 7 out of every 10 passes he throws is processing the game correctly on some level.
stats. holy ****. get out. hes in a air raid offense. putting up stats in that doesnt matter at all, everyone does. he stares down targets constantly. he is brutally slow through progressions. hes has good physical tools. thats it right now
And come on, every QB who's played in college has thrown an ill advised INT.
Even Luck had the rare INT at Stanford where you wonder where his head was at when he threw the football. i dont remember luck having an INT where he stared down the target that bad then threw it anyway after giving the defense plenty of time to break on it. could be wrong, but i certainly dont recall, if youre thinking of one in particular let me know.

it was a good example of a flaw in his game making him look very stupid. you can pass it off as its only one INT and not something he has a bad habit of doing, you can have your bias.
Look, I can't take you seriously any longer. I have been watching football for 30 years and there is little you can tell me based on your lack of knowledge. You really don't know what you are talking about and I am okay with that. You are cherry picking your overall assessment of Smith, completely ignoring a plethora of top level plays in the clip. That's your bias, and you can have it.
Ignoring top level plays? i said he made a nasty back shoulder throw right before the ball he forced, and ive been saying he has good physical tools.
im not the one ignoring obvious flaws in his game, you are. the problem is that hes never read a defense and he rarely makes progression reads. when he does, hes far too slow at it. those are major issues.
im ignoring the last paragraph. this isnt personal, were talking football, thats all, lets not turn this into some embarrassing internet fight. saying you cant take me seriously doesnt improve your argument but it does make you look immature, which if youre 35+ years old you dont need and neither do i. you dont like my point of view, have 3 decades of football knowledge, think im uninformed, incompetent, whatever thats fine. if you dont like my point of view, prove me wrong or ignore me.
