Agreed. I don't want Geno to play like Big Ben because few players can take the kind of abuse Big Ben takes, and Big Ben is a rare QB who has made a living out of holding the ball too long.
I do NOT want Geno to be groomed to extend plays. I want him to learn to make quick reads, and given his work ethic, I think he can do that. The last thing we want to do is to let Geno feel comfortable with holding on to the ball too long because he knows he can get away with it.
