Geno Smith fans roll call

NEW THREAD HEADER (11/17/12):

The list is gone. We will all be Geno Smith fans when he gets drafted by the Chiefs. For historical documentation's sake, I'll keep the list in a separate post on this thread: http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showp...postcount=3314

WHY GENO SMITH?
If you're wondering if Geno Smith is right for you, check out this brilliant post by Saccopoo:

http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showp...postcount=5388

Next, we have a few GIFs you may be interested in from the Oklahoma game. Insane potential. These are the elite throws that very few QBs can make. What more can I say? Geno Smith can be a franchise QB in the NFL, and the Chiefs need to take a shot on him.

GIF #1:
Spoiler!


GIF #2:
Spoiler!


GIF #3 (My favorite):
Spoiler!


HOW DO WE GET HIM HERE?

Glad you asked. I posted this checklist earlier. It probably belongs in the thread header, and will be updated as the Chiefs close out their season and start a new chapter in their franchise story.

Preparing for Geno Smith's Arrival In KC Checklist

1. [X] Lose games and acquire the #1 overall pick
2. [X] Get Pioli and the Patriot Way cronies the **** out
3. [X] Hire new GM/coach

OPTIONAL (but highly recommended):
4. [ ] Re-sign/tag Bowe, who really wants to play in KC with Geno
5. [ ] Re-sign/tag Albert

December 17, 2012
Who’s not #1 this year, but just wait … With the college football regular season in the books, the bowls just under and the top post-season all-star games now just over a month away, there is still no consensus top prospect for the 2013 draft. Part of the problem, of course, is that it does not appear as if there will any QBs worth the top pick this year, although Geno Smith of West Virginia and/or Southern Cal’s Matt Barkley are still potential top ten prospects. Take a poll of pro scouts as to who is the top prospect, though, and you’ll get a myriad of answers. Some teams, for example, have Texas A&M junior OT Luke Joeckel at the top of their board, while a number of other teams have either Georgia junior OLB Jarvis Jones or Utah DT Star Lotolelei in the #1 slot. We’ve even heard some whispers that no one should be surprised if Texas A&M junior DE Damontre Moore is ultimately the first guy off the board this coming April.

Take the same poll of pro scouts and the current college player that just about every team in the league would snap up with the top pick if they had it would be South Carolina sophomore DE Jadevon Clowney. However, the 6-6, 260-pound Clowney who had 21 sacks in his who had 21 sacks in his two years of eligibility including 13 this past season, won’t be draft eligible until 2014. In fact, a pretty good case could be made that true sophomores would make up a crowd at the top of the 2013 draft if they were eligible for this year’s draft. What Clowney is to the defense, for example, Southern California WR Marqise Lee is to the offense. Indeed Lee, a speedster who also runs track for the Trojans in the off-season, emerged as college football’s most dangerous receiver this fall when he caught 112 passes for 1,700 yards and 14 scores. Meanwhile, Clemson WR Sammy Watkins isn’t all that far behind, although he wasn’t able to duplicate his fabulous freshman year this past season as he dealt with some off-field stuff as well some injury issues; still, like Lee, he’s a top 5 prospect with track speed. And while the defensive line appears to be the strength of the 2013 draft, there is a better than even chance that Notre Dame 5-tech DE Stephon Tuitt, a 305-pounder who had 12 sacks this past season, would also come off the board within the first 5 or so picks were he eligible this spring, especially given the fact that he will no doubt get plenty of looks as 4-3 DT whenever he does enter the draft. Then there is Arizona RB Ka’Deem Carey who led the nation in rushing this fall with almost 150 yards per game and topped it off with another 172 yards and three scores in the Wildcats improbable comeback win over Nevada in the New Mexico Bowl. For the year, the 5-9, 200-pound Carey ran for 1,929 yards and 23 scores, while adding another 300-plus yards on 36 carries. Of course, those guys have to stay healthy and productive, but suggests that 2014 could be something of a special draft.

Can someone help me understand the comment "Well there aren't any QBs this year unfortunately.". I have heard fans say it, announcers say it, draft experts say it. Here is this 6'3 225 pound kid that's started three years, gotten better each year, is obviously a very gifted athlete, and has the smarts to succeed at the next level, and for some reason, only a few see it.

What's the "catch" on Geno. I've watched him play a lot and he is obviously a Top 10 talent in a QB driven league. I simply don't ****ing get it.

can someone explain to me how ****ing stupid you would have to be to not draft a QB with the #1 pick if you're the Chiefs?

i mean is there even a system to measure just how ****ing stupid that would be? numbers don't go high enough to quantify it...

Thanks, O. but I really don't. My statement was that I can see Domer's scenario as well as drafting Smith. And that just looking at different ideas doesn't make some one wrong, especially when we are all just speculating anyway.

There is no catch. The only issue that Geno has is that he's following a year where Luck and RGIII came out. If last year never happened and Luck/RGIII didn't exist.....Geno Smith would be a consensus #1 pick.

you've never watched a single snap of his

your opinion is less than worthless...it's the crusty semen on your mom's pig hole when she wakes up in a dumpster outside of Akron...

you are one of many chiefs fans that deserves another decade of losing...you assholes are the reason this franchise is a farce

Burt, would you draft this QB?

POSITIVES: Big-armed pocket passer with the ability to grow into a franchise quarterback. Sets up to deliver the ball with solid footwork, stands strong in the pocket and smart. Sells the ball fakes, scans the field and consistently finds the open pass-catcher. Senses the rush yet buys as much time as possible, waiting for the last second before releasing the ball. Rarely panics, in complete control of the offense and a true leader behind center. Natural looking off the safety, throws with a fluid over delivery and possesses a big arm. Drives deep passes downfield, puts zip on the intermediate routes as well as velocity on all his throws. Throws tight spirals and beautifully arches deep throws. Leads receivers over the middle and very accurate. Gets outside tackle and accurate passing on the move. Does not make poor decisions and always working to make positive plays.

NEGATIVES: A pocket passer with marginal mobility and cannot escape the rush. Must improve his downfield accuracy as well as the placement of the outs. Majority of snaps are taken out of the shotgun.

Those same scouts are supposedly saying Smith isn't even ranked as high as Newton coming out, so blaming it all on RGIII and Luck is misplaced.

Domer wants to draft a player first overall, that in the defense we run, is the 8th or 9th most important position. Even if he is Ray Lewis, playing that spot on D won't matter.

He does. Most of his reads are pre-snap, and he will progress if his initial options are not available. Which admittedly isn't often, because his first reads are usually Austin or Bailey, and they're both really ****ing good.

People can say whatever they want about his mechanics or his footwork or how he looks quirky to them in some intangible way, but the reality is that he's really good at knowing where to go with the ball and how best to get it there. There's a reason he completed 70+% of his passes and had 40 TD against 6 INTs, and it's not because of competition. The guy is really good. He had the kind of season people would be talking about as historic if only West Virginia had fielded a defense that could actually stop anybody.

It's like people trying to use the Oklahoma game against him. The guy throws for 320 yards, has 4 TD against 2 picks against one of the highest ranked passing defenses in the country, but he lost 50-49. So he must suck.

People talk about the TCU game as a bad one, too. I mean yeah, the guy only had 260 yards passing, 3 TD and 1 INT and they lost 39-38 in double overtime. Awful.

Defense makes one stop in either of those games, they're an 8-4 team, ranked somewhere in the top-25. Make a stop in both those games and he's in the Heisman discussion at 9-3, with the same exact stats that he has on a 7-5 team.

You can point to Kansas State, he turned the ball over in that one (it was one of TWO 2-int games he's had in the past two seasons - and only the third game in 3 seasons as a starter where he had more INTs than TDs.), and you can point to Texas Tech (although I would argue against that one). But at the end of the day, the problems with WVU were not Geno Smith. He did his part.

Let me reiterate something: in three seasons as a starter he had three games where he threw more picks than scores. Three. And this is a guy regularly throwing 30+ times a game. This isn't Greg freaking McElroy riding the best defense in college football. This is a guy that's excelled playing in both a pro-style offense (in 2010) and a spread offense (2011-12), a guy who's been asked to be the focal point and done it at a high level for three years.

And yet somehow he's not good enough for the #1 pick? When he shoots up the board in March after all the workouts are done, people are going to talk about him like he's some kind of workout climber? Right. It's not like he's completed more than 65% of his passes for his career, or thrown for more than 10,000 yards, or thrown 96 TDs against 20 INTs. He's not a top QB, not with a mediocre performance like that.

He played like crap in the first half of the Oklahoma game. Meh third quarter and excellent in the 4th.
