I think Smith does too and he's probably the front runner of the two but what's that matter when one thinks Jones may have something to offer as well?
How many other games of Jones have you watched?
If this is the only one you've seen, do some more research. What he's doing right now in the pocket is NOT what legitimate NFL starters do.
Maybe if he finds the right system he can one day be a successful game manager type of QB, but that means he's going to have to do a better job of taking care of the football when shit isn't wide open with ample time to throw.
Either way, he's NOT what we or any team really needs at the moment. He's simply not a 1st round QB.
I mean, at least Tebow had sky high potential if he ever figured out how to break down his throwing motion and build it back up over the course of several years. Jones doesn't have that.
