I'm not sure you understand what a quick release is. It has nothing to do with how long he holds on to the ball. A QB's release is the time from when they identify their target and start their wind up, to the time the ball leaves their hand. Some QB's have a quick effortless release, even downfield, and others have long wind up baseball pitcher type releases ala Cassel and Leftwich.

Geno has a very quick release.

Yeah he has done this. But not very often. He locks on his 1st read ALL THE TIME. Watch the OU game. Perfect proof of that
The best argument for this is, look at his completion percentage, 71%, who cares. He goes to his first target b/c he can.

He may be a hard worker, but he must not be understanding it, especially yesterday. He studies hard all summer and has played a team twice, but then he still struggles against that same defense? Not buying his football IQ.
Duh. What exactly is a guy playing behind a Swiss cheese line against a top ten tackles for loss defense supposed to do? All he could do is drop back, and hope he didn't get creamed.

Austin picked up 909 of his 1266 receiving yards after the catch (71.8% of his total receiving yards)

Bailey picked up 553 of his 1501 receiving yards after the catch (36.8% of his total receiving yards)

These two players account for 69.1% of Geno Smith's passing yards.
What's your point? Yes Tavon and Bailey took short passes a long distance from time to time. More often though, Geno hit them 30yds downfield behind the defense where nobody could tackle them unless they were caught from behind. If Geno hits Tavon at the 50 from his own 20, and Tavon takes it the remaining 50 untouched, 50 of 80 yards being after the catch is the majority, but no less impressive for Geno.

That doesn even account for how well Geno leads receivers on slants and crossing routes, allowing them to catch the ball in stride and run for Big gains.

Really? Is that why good defenses are getting the best of him? He should have had 4 INT's in the OU game, but the DB dropped easy INT's that hit their hands. Easy INT's in the NFL.
Most games, he played well enough to win in, the 106th ranked defense let WV down more than Geno ever did. He did have bad games though, every QB does.
