He is not as athletically gifted, but he has the mobility to extend plays with his legs, and is better at keeping his eyes downfield than any college QB I've seen in years, except Luck.
RGIII extended plays, but a lot of what he did was dumpoffs after breaking containment, while Smith throws the ball all over the yard, because his vision is better downfield.
And your whole "RGIII is less likely to bust because he can run" is some of the dumbest shit ever.
Michael Vick never busted for that reason, but there's no way in hell I want that type of QB.
RGIII is not going to bust because he is a smart kid that will excel as a pocket passer.
Geno Smith will excel for that same reason.
The short of this is that you are a blowhard dumbass.
And there you go. Again putting words in people's mouths.
I said when an absolute worst case scenario is to be a running qb like Vick, that's a really good floor. I said the more realistic floor for rgIII is he is a pocket qb with ability to extend pass plays with his mobility. Don't sell this bullshit story that I have ever said I like rgIII because I think he is a running qb like Vick.
I get your point that you think geno has better pocket presence than rgIII. But I'm sorry, the speed disadvantage... Geno can't extend plays in the same way rgIII can. You can't design an offense around moving geno around in the pocket like Washington can with rgIII. Geno is a qb who you don't want to use athleticism unless it is a last resort. Geno HAS to succeed by making lightning quick decisions as a pocket passer. RgIII should and can, but he doesn't need to. Tremendous difference.
