The fact is, that absolute floor that you point out is why he has far less bust potettial.
That is sheer and utter dipshitery.
I said that he has a tendency to stare down his primary deep read when he feels the need for big plays.
If he is not playing to keep up with opponents, that is not an issue.
No, I said he has less bust potential because at absolute worst he is Vick. When that's the worst case scenario, that's not bad. More likely absolute worst is he is a big Ben, who uses speed instead of size to extend plays where others can't. His upside is he becomes an exceptional passer with a scary athletic bailout. Genos downside, sorry, is if he truly can't become a good pure mental qb he isn't even starting qb material. RgIII has much greater upside and a much safer downside.
And look... Geno has shown he can run through progressions better than a lot of typical spread qbs. But let's not pretend its something he has to prove in ways well beyond what he's demonstrated so far. He has to do it, do it often, and do it quickly and well. I believe he can. But is it a risk? For now, yes, and Moreso than a qb whose college offense is built around doing this all the time.
