That means Tyler Wilson or...gulp...Mike Glennon.
Sorry but it's the truth. That's why we have to get rid of this clown.
Geno Smith is a tall quarterback that fits the Tom Brady prototype.
He just happens to be black.
Apart from that, they are physically extremely
similar. And Wilson is not closer to Brady than Geno is...again, apart from being white.
I know he came from Boston and all, so the racism is to be expected. But c'mon, let's not act like he doesn't know how to use a ruler. If Pioli is looking for someone built like Tom Brady, he can't get a hell of a lot closer than Geno Smith.
The person you may be describing would be the Drew Bledsoe mold - the 6'5'' statuesque gunslinger. That would be the Landry Jones, Tyler Bray school of QB building. I don't see anything to suggest that Pioli is a Bledsoe acolyte.
If people are going to say dumb things to degrade Smith (even if they're projecting same on Pioli), they should probably do some homework first.
