But yet you keep hyping Griffin's pro potential and he was basically a single year wonder out of a true spread system.

Could geno succeed in Stanford's offense? Absolutely. Would he have been as successful as Luck? Probably not. Because you are asking a guy to be better than a guy who was the best qb prospect in ten years. And you are asking him to outthink a qb that showed in college he was smarter than most nfl qbs. Geno couldn't. Bradford couldn't. Matt Ryan couldn't. I still believe luck is a once in a generation draft pick.
Sure he is. No one is denying that. You are getting all worked up over nothing. And, besides, I think it's silly to emphatically state that Geno "couldn't" because he's doing the same thing with less.

Don't hide behind your agenda. You are trying to compare geno to luck than pretend that you're not.
I'm not comparing Geno to Luck other than attempting to show the Luck or Bust alternate reality, history revisionist crowd that Geno is putting up numbers that are comparable to Luck's numbers. That he's doind so in a situation that is less ideal that what Luck had at Stanford last season is all the more impressive. At least to me.

It's people like you that are crying in their spilled milk that we didn't take either guy last year and are left with the leftovers this year, not realizing that there was no way in hell that we had a chance at either of them.

And it's people like me who see a guy like Geno as approximately on the same level as those two (and, as stated, I like him better than Griffin at the same stage) and I'm happy as hell to get a chance to get a guy like that for the Chiefs.

Because I hate overhype and I hate demonizing. Something this board does a lot. Your agenda was pretty clear. Luck shouldn't even be in the conversation of comparisons. At all.
You yourself are guilty of both with Griffin and Luck. Luck isn't the end all be all 3,000% better guy you apparently think he is.

It's like someone screaming that Elway was the greatest ever and anyone that compared Kelly or Marino to him was a moron because he was guaranteed to be the best quarterback prospect ever by the pundits.

Personally, I could care less about both Griffin and Luck. They aren't on the Chiefs. **** 'em.

I do care about the Chiefs, and want them to get the best QB that they can. That guy is Geno.
