And to compare him to Blaine gabbert is very favorable. Both came from schools that have had success playing similar schedules. Both have all these positive attributes stands tall in the pocket have pocket awareness good arm strength. Blaine got beat down and wasn't mentally ready for the nfl he had no business starting day one. The jags have MJD and little else. We lose Bowe we have JC and little else. You put Geno in ar number 1 on this team a very similar situation, IMO, to what happened in Jacksonville. There already ready to jump ship.
i would say stats for spread offenses are skewed though. They put up monster stats for a season until NFL teams adjust to it then they get shut down and we don't see them anymore. Case in point cam newton torched everyone last year and set how many records? what happen this year? teams figured him and the style out and shut him down. Im betting the same will happen with rg3 next year, teams will have tape on him figure out the system and shut it down. So i don't really go by stats from spread offenses. Hence why i like the idea of drafting a QB coming out of a pro style offense.
Lets face it the spread offense has been around for ALONG time and has been tried for ALONG time in the nfl and it never sticks because it can't succeed. Once a team gets tape on it it's easy to shut down.
and whats their record again? he can put up all the records or numbers he wants but i want a WINNING team. and when you loose alot of games and can throw the ball around to pad your stats then good for him. i mean seriously WE beat them how bad is that?
as bad as the mountaineers defense is they played their equals with subpar competition. I'm not saying newton sucks, i personally don't like him but he can play for sure. But he also did it against the toughest competition in ncaa. Geno hasn't, so to say geno is going to come in and win is a pretty bold statement.
