If he doesn't succeed as a pocket passer, and Smith doesn't succeed as pocket passer, then the only differnce is that you win some games with RGIII that you don't win with Smith.
I don't ****ing care about winning a few extra games.
If neither succeed as a pocket passer, then you aren't going to the SB with either one, and that's all I ****ing care about, you useless dipshit.
Fair point. But again... What always intrigued me about rgIII is I always believed the more likely worse case scenario is a qb who holds on to the ball too long but can use his legs to throw downfield. Even if geno has the pocket presence to do it, he just can't move away from the pocket in the same way rgIII can. You can't design an offense to move him around the pocket in nearly the same creative way.
And as I've said... His upside is he becomes an exceptional passer with exceptional ability to extend plays and stretch the field in ways that are uncommon.
His athleticism turns him into a prospect geno can't be.
