That'd be like flipping it around and dismissing a large part of what Geno did in college because he consistently played below average to terrible defenses and when he played someone like a K-State didn't play well at all. Does it take away from what he did or make him any less of a prospect? Uh no.
I like Geno...I wanted Geno...I still do...but I'm not losing any sleep over the fact he more than likely will be playing elsewhere in the NFL.
Vernon Davis carried the team on his back on that final drive. If Alex Smith converted just one third down in that NFC Championship game, we have a 49ers/Patriots Super Bowl. Alex Smith being clutch against that Saints D is akin to Cassel throwing over 400 yards against the Donks in garbage time. Alex Smith is absolute garbage. Geno may be garbage or a franchise QB, but this franchise is too chicken shit to find out. Thus, why they are 3-12 in playoff games since Super Bowl IV.
