And it's not "expect". It's "believe there is a realistic possibility".

There is no realistic possibility that Alex Smith is going to be more than a game manager. Because he has already proven what he is.

There is some realistic possibility that Geno Smith will be more than a game manager. He has the arm strength (which Alex does not), the accuracy, the intelligence, the work ethic, the attitude, the field vision, the mobility (in terms of avoiding pressure) and basically any- and everything else you would look for in a franchise quarterback for today's NFL.

Does that mean that he will be a franchise quarterback? Who knows. You can't "expect" that for any draft pick, because every rookie is an unknown. But you can hope for that. Which is the difference between Geno Smith and the other Smith. There's little to no hope with Alex. He is what he his. The only hope there is the hope that they can build the rest of the team to such a level that his limitations can be overcome.
