Who in the hell said that we need to build a game around his athletic ability to bail out the offense?
Seriously, are you high?
The reason I love Geno as a prospect is his ability to stay within the pocket, move around in the pocket while avoiding the rush, keep his eyes downfield and make the throw.
And he's got enough athleticism to escape, when he needs to. But I want my QB making the downfield throw, not running around the field willy nilly trying to make a play with his legs and dumping off as a last resort.
I made this comparison last season about this time - Griffin reminds me of Fran Tarkenton.
Geno Smith reminds me of an Aaron Rogers/Warren Moon type of QB.
