I think what's going to be critical for Geno is how quickly he's getting rid of the ball on the 5 and 7-step drops. The guy is holding the ball quite a bit in a lot of the footage you see of him.
I want to see that ball coming out as soon as the back foot hits.
Alex Smith's current 9.8 YPC is one of the lowest marks in the NFL over the last 10 seasons. Only a few QBs have been worse:
Ryan Mallett (9.8), Derek Carr (9.4), Christian Ponder (9.8), Brady Quinn (9.8), Ryan Fitzpatrick (8.6), Brodie Croyle (9.7), Charlie Frye (9.7), Bruce Gradkowski (9.4), David Carr (9.2)
