I dont think we would have been blown out of any of our games thus far and would be anywhere from 4-5 to 7-2.
Not only that, we would have a young franchise quarterback developing and a very bright future.
Were you insinuating that would only be marginally a better situation?
Oh well, in th grand scheme of things...if we end up drafting Geno Smith we are better off that way.
Geno Smith + Dontari Poe > Ryan Tannehill and Teo.
I think Teo is another Kuechly or Aaron Curry.
We would be in a much better situation than we are now because the only way we can go is up. I just don't think the Sherman-led dolphins offense (with tannehill) is anything special, and Orton wouldn't make up for the fact that this team has way too many holes. Anything is an upgrade over what we have as our OC/QB combo now, but I still think this team has too many holes to be competitive.
But i do agree that Geno would lead to a brighter future if his ability translates well to the pro game.
