The guy who wrote that is a racist IMO.
Geno Smith is different than Sanchez... I get the feeling Geno is more of a football guy, he seems to know things about football..
A WVU fan told me that Geno didn't run in college because he was set on showing NFL teams that he can be a pocket passer and throw the football. He has 4.5 speed, he should run more as it can be a weapon and cause more frustrations for defenses...
Geno has a real quick release and seems like he fits in the WCO. Marty Mornhinweg is a really good OC and QB guy, he'll do a better job coaching than our previous guys.
LOL. We are his bread and butter.Media has figured out that Jets-bashing = ratings. Other fans love hearing it, and Jets fans can't tune it out. (See: The Francessa School of Getting Rich by Trolling Jet Fans)
Sánchez was a much better prospect coming out of college. Geno is the best qb prospect of this class, but its the worst qb class in 20 years. Don't act like geno is a legit elite qb prospect, he's not.
Clemens and Smith are along the same kind of prospect coming out. Showed glimpses of being good, but not really any high end upside. Geno is a stopgap qb nothing more.

It would be very stupid to ask him to go out there year one and lead a deep aerial attack. He certainly has the arm strength to do that, but lets see if he can crawl before handing over the keys to a high octane offense.
With MM, the gameplan will be tailored to the personnel. I trust him to handle Smith properly.
The difference between Smith and most college QBs who put up great numbers in a spread offense is that he actually has a strong arm.
Sanchez wasn't a better prospect. He had a very small body of work in college, couldn't even win the starting job until his senior year, the same goes for High School.
I'll quote Joe Namath,"Look, he's a good looking kid, you want the ethnicity, you want a shot that maybe he becomes a big box office attraction, then he's your man....but that fact remains is that he was a Huge reach in the 1st Round", which unfortunately I can't argue with, because I really wanted him to succeed.
You could say that Sanchez draft class was very weak, because after Matt Stafford, what was there?
Geno Smith might be a stop-gap but he might be a lot more, we don't know yet, and to use that cliché,"he can "make all the throws"", well Geno Smith can "make all the throws", and with defenders draped all over his receivers just like they will be in the NFL. Sanchez' guys were always open by 5-10 yards playing that weak Pac-10 Conference, even now after 4 years you almost never see Sanchez hit someone in stride even when wide open....seen enough.
The best players, playing the best, should play.
Whomever that is.
Saying Geno has lack of work ethic sounds opposite of everything else I've heard/seen from the kid
Sanchez was considered a better QB prospect coming out of college than Geno.
Its difficult to compare in hindsight.
if he starts he may really miss them. It's weird how they both wound up on the Rams but Geno went to the Jets. Too bad the three of them couldn't have stayed together, they were successful as a unit.
