That's true for any college QB. If the issue is "he can't play in cold weather" it implies there are other "cold weather" qbs that are used to it. But, like you said, that's not really the case. In fact the only true "Cold weather" qb drafted in the top 10 since 2000 is Matt Ryan (Boston College). There was 1 from Oregon (Harrington), another from Oklahoma (Bradford), and another from West Virginia (Leftwich).
Of the 6 QBs that could have gone in the first 2 rounds, he's the closest thing to a Cold Weather QB
Ryan Nassib - Syracuse - Dome
EJ Manuel - Florida St
Matt Barkley - USC
Mike Glennon - North Carolina St
Tyler Wilson - Arkansas
Mods - any chance this post can be auto-generated every time someone mentions Geno's ability to play in cold weather?
Excellent, excellent point that will unfortunately have to be revisited another 100 times before camp starts.
Personally I think that this is why Idzik fired our scouts.
Not only did they not realize that he frequently checks his cellular telephone, but they also failed to realize THAT HE'S FROM FLORIDA - AND PROBABLY LIKES WARM WEATHER BETTER THAN COLD WEATHER. Think of the implications this will have for football at Metlife in December!
Lol. I regularly play tennis outside in December in CT. It's rarely been freezing in New York until Jan-Feb.
