Geno Smith has a very, very high football IQ. Had he been recruited and placed in that very system that Luck went into, he absolutely could have come out of it showing the same level of poise and command of the offense that Luck did.
I have praised Genos football iq. His character. His work ethic.
I said lucks was off the charts. That isn't a knock on geno, that's to say no qb the past 10 years has shown the same football iq luck has. Geno had success in a pro system, but lets not pretend he was asked to use even close to the same type of iq luck did. As I've said, luck was doing things pre snap many experienced nfl qbs can't do.
Even trying to benchmark geno off luck is just plain silly.
