I also think you're misstating when you say we know his ceiling and that it isn't very high. No, it's not Tom Brady, but it's Matt Schaub. If you could have Matt Schaub as a fallback position on this roster, wouldn't it make all the sense in the world?
Geno is your Brady, now you gotta find your experienced Mark Brunnel type guy who can keep the ship on course for small amounts of time.
