    Ha! Omar Jacobs. He couldn't even cut it in the AFL playing for the Sharks. Dude got benched this season in favor of their third string WR.

    I understand that you think Geno is better... being a WV and all but take the homer cap off.

    Geno is good, top QB, top 10 worthy no doubt.

    However RG3/Newton are completely different prospects than Geno. Geno is pass first and average athleticism, vs two run first elite athleticism guys.

    I love Geno, but this argument is biased and inimical.

    compare the stats... i dont think he's better, but about the same level... but more accurate then them... and since nobody knows my stance on QB... i place accuracy pretty high on QBs..
    plus i watch every game he's ever played.. so yes, i'm biased.. but denying the kid is good is just plain ignorant

    My point was simply they're completely different in play styles. Everyone thinks, "Geno Smith, he's black.. so he's a scrambling QB". I'll be honest, I was the same way until I started doing some research. Obviously you knew he wasn't being a WVU fan. Geno can toss the ball there is no doubt about it. He's not an elite prospect like Luck or RG3. Luck offers athleticism and amazing intelligence and RG brings amazing athleticism paired with an great arm. Geno has a good arm too, but that's it (don't know about the intelligence aspect). Geno will get taken Top-10, just because he's a QB and some top-10 team will need a QB (and he's better than overrated Barkley).

    So i'm not sure why you keep telling me to look up stats - fine, i'll compare the stats...

    First 5 games:
    Geno: 1996 yards, 24 TDs, 0 INT, 81.4 C%, 204 pass atmpts, 66 R. Yards, 1 R TD
    RG3: 1520 yards, 19 TDs, 1 INT, 80.3 C%, 142 pass atmpts, 280 R. Yards, 2 R TD

    What's your point?

    Geno is a different style of QB than Cam and RG3. So even if he's more accurate it's not really fair to compare them...the post you mentioned also said he was a top 10 pick so I'm pretty sure he's not denying that he's good.

    again... i have more knowledge on him than most anyone on the board... but we'll leave it at that... i'm not butt hurt that some people thinks he's not going to be as good as RGIII, Luck, Newton etc... i'm more annoyed at those that think he's pat white 2.0 since they went to the same school and start saying pure crap on things they have no clue about.. but then again, that's the definition of trolling..
    believe it or not... geno isn't even my current favorite wvu player :p
