Time will tell us all where Geno belongs and whether taking him or passing was the correct decision.
The biggest thing for the fans IMO is: If not now, when?
This draft has the feel of '08 when it was Matt Ryan or Jake Long.
No I don't really want "Matt Ryan" as my QB. He is not a franchise QB IMO. He cannot put a team on his back and win.
So if Reid and Dorsey view Geno as "Matt Ryan" I hope we do pass on him because we would be stuck with a good QB that can't win you a SB.
No. Brad Johnson is the mean of the #1 overall pick.
In other words, you can expect the #1 overall pick in the draft to have a career comparable to Brad Johnson.
That isn't necessarily bad. Johnson had a couple of pro-bowls and a Super Bowl ring.
