I said that after he was compared to Elway and he has way more in common with Leftwich than he does with Elway.
Obviously Geno is more athletic than Leftwich and has a quicker release. But they both prefer to stay in the pocket. A lot of what made Elway, Elway was what he did outside the pocket.
I'm sure there are more accurate comparisons for Geno Smith than Byron Leftwich. That was just the first name that popped into my head.
