For as much shit as I get for poking holes, I do it because chiefs planet sets such unrealistic expectations for a qb then turns on him 2 months after when he has a 3 int game. I'm in for geno and I won't judge him until about midway into year 2. My track record is extremely consistent on that.
I hated Poe from the beginning, but that's neither here nor there.
As long as Geno Smith showed flashes of brilliance and improvement, I'd be patient with him as long as it takes. Two, three, possibly even four years. His first year he can do whatever he wants. That's his time to REALLY make mistakes and get used to the game. But NFL fans should expect to see gradual, tiny steps of improvement in year 2 and so on.
And even if he didn't improve like that, he should also be given his entire second year as a starter to learn the game from experience.
It's in his third year where some strides should be shown. But he doesn't have to be perfect even then, at least in my book.
But the NFL is a business, and we'll see how patient the Chiefs really are.
