I think people are getting too much of a confirmation bias with Geno. A bunch of folks watch his highlights but ignore the score of lowlights he has up. For every brilliant game, there's games where the offense collapses. For every great throw, there's a pass that falls five yards out of bounds.
I really like Geno and like everybody else, I'm starved for a QB and I want us to draft one.
But this fanbase is getting its hopes up waaaaay too high on this guy.
Oh he's in no means a perfect prospect. The rhetoric on him around here is a bit much at times, but I really don't mind it. This franchise has shit on us overa nd over in terms of QB play, so I get it.
But I think last years class has hurt him, his system has hurt him, and things he's actually had control on have hurt him.
I may be putting way too much into todays numbers, but I am actually a bit blown away by his combine numbers and I'm starting to think he wasn't used very well at WVU.
