Only significant advantage RGIII has over Geno is making plays with his feet. But Geno isn't a slouch there, either. He can scramble pretty well when he has to, and is pretty damn elusive in the pocket.
Thanks, good insight.
I've seen the recent highlights. Looked like an arena league game. I haven't seen much from him over the course of time so don't know enough to say if he's played against any good defenses, if he can make reads, what his football and leadership IQs are, etc.
If he continues to receive the hype I'm sure all of that will come out in the weeks to come, and I'll watch with interest.
