The QB eye test

Yeah... I was wrong! Very wrong!

 

Geno looked very much like an NFL QB yesterday. I was really pleasantly surprised how much in fact. He was for the most part very accurate, very poised, showed a very strong arm, and a lot of QB intelligence, taking what was there, throwing it away when it wasn't there, and running to keep some nice drives going.

 

He really should only get better with experience. If we can get him some game breakers too, we may have something special. I don't want to get carried away against a bad Bucs team who really gave us the game as much as we won it, but that said, Geno looks to be the real deal. I am very happy to admit when I am wrong! Sorry Geno!

 

Classy.  My hat is off to you.  All too often on these boards guys won't admit when they're wrong due to their ego/insecurities.

This is a nice surprise on this board haha

I honestly think his ankle was maybe bothering him more than the Jets let on. It still might not even be 100% but it football so nobody is really ever 100%. He looked really good yesterday. He made a few mistakes but again they were correctable. The good definitely outweighed the bad yesterday. Each game I think we will see him progress. I thought for the most part his decision making was really good and the moment was never too big. Even after they hit that field goal he was on sideline clapping getting the offense ready to go.

Thanks.

 

None of us are really experts, some are more knowledgeable than others for sure, but at the end of the day, even the worst NFL GM's, coaches and personnel people are 100 times more knowledgeable than we are. That does not mean they don't make horrible decisions at times, but its the fact.

 

We are fans, we get to sit on our keyboards and criticize. I am happy to throw my opinions out there, and happy to say when I am wright, or wrong.

The mob is fickle.

 

Looking forward to the flip flop after the first disaster, which will happen.

Yep.  And probably this week.  And that's OK.

Geno has passed my eye test so far, just looking at him play, he reminds me of a mix between Vick and Kaepernick. He doesn't have Vick's speed or explosiveness, but his closing speed was impressive yesterday, it seemed that he accelerated just enough to either get the first down or get out of bounds to avoid a hit (except the last one) when he ran. What I also liked was that he had tremendous pocket awareness for his first game (minus the fumble) there were times were I felt like I was about to scream through my tv telling him to scramble or throw the ball but he was able to move judiciously in an around the pocket to avoid being hit.

Nah..... not here.

 

Let me be a bit more clear. My original post was saying that when I watched him play in pre-season, he did not look the part of an NFL QB. This last post was saying I was wrong, he does look like an NFL QB to me.

 

The real deal comment again was he looks like the real deal.

 

He WILL struggle, he is a rookie.

 

The league WILL learn him and make adjustments.

 

Geno has the tools to be a franchise QB.

 

Whether or not he will depends on 2 main factors IMO: 

 

1) will the NFL game slow down for him

2) when the league makes adjustments, can he make the right adjustments to the leagues adjustments

 

If he can, we have our guy. Whether or not these two things happen is anyones guess.
