Many spread, no-huddle teams nowadays have their offenses line up and then look toward the sideline to receive additional instruction. This allows coaches to get a look at the defense, but defenses also make adjustments during this time, so the offense rarely gains the upper hand. The Air Raiders skip that step and rely on the quarterback to make smart decisions. So far, West Virginia's Geno Smith has done an excellent job

The biggest change Holgorsen made to the Air Raid playbook has been to eschew the shallow crosses (he still uses them sometimes, but mostly as adjustments) in favor of routes that push downfield. Several Air Raid disciples tweaked the offense with more shallow routes that is, by being more spread. Holgorsen went the other way. He brought backs into the backfield, added play-action fakes, and made his pass patterns all look the same. And now the Air Raid is even deadlier.
Weeden was an immobile, 28 year old former pro baseball player with an okay arm.

The only comparison that Geno and Weeden have is that they had good accuracy. Geno has better pocket awareness and athleticism. Weeden was more Bledsoe than anything - without the arm. Hell, I'd say Weeden was substantially less mobile than that. Accurate on short crossing patterns, but he rarely went over the top of the defense. And if he was forced to move out of the pocket, his accuracy took a huge hit. Geno excels at throwing on the move. Deep. Comparing Geno to Weeden is, for lack of a better word, ignorant. They are not even remotely close to being similar.

Look dude...I know that you don't want Geno because some dipshit with a camera at the Texas game thought he saw Geno "flash" a gang sign after celebrating the win on the road over UT.

I gotta tell you, that doesn't mean jack squat.

If you want to keep coming in here and trying to discredit Geno, and subsequently getting clowned for it by 158 different guys who can see the excellent traits and attributes that Geno has, then go right ahead. However, you are not going to convince a single person with a modicum of intelligence that he isn't the best QB in this draft and that the Chiefs shouldn't take him. Especially in this thread.

I mean, if you want to go to some retard board with retard fans and post retard shit, I'm sure that someone would be willing to listen to your trade down and draft Manti Te'o or Luke Joeckel and get a QB in round two so the Chiefs can continue to be a bunch of losers bullshit, but it ain't here.
