Posted 14 Nov 2014I think you guys that are saying Geno sucks aren't looking at the big picture. The fact is we dont know what we have in Geno and here is why....
First off the team is still rebuilding and second you guys saying that really dont have a clue of how bad the offensive line is. Posted stats below of oline problems.
Vick is a better fit at this point because of his years of experience but Vick isn't a long term solution and he may be able to take a team to the playoffs but he isn't good enough with his broken up body to win a Superbowl. He has taken so many hard hits he is one hard hit away from a season or career ending injury.
Almost every pure running qb`s that come into the NFL running the ball like a running back has sub-par throwing ability.
That`s what is amazing about Vick`s transition. Just a guesstimate but Id say 1% or fewer pure running qbs can make the transition like Vick has from a pure running qb to a pretty good pocket passer.
Pure hybrid qb`s like Russel Wilson and Aaron Rodgers that have great arms and great running ability are very rare in the NFL.Since they can play as a pocket passer, scrambling or running all very well they dont get hurt as often has pure pocket passers or pure running qb`s because the defense never has a clue whether the qb is going to run or pass.
RG3 is a perfect example. RG3 is a pure running qb and a terrible pocket passer. When he was able to run all over the field he was able to make some explosive passing plays but with the major injuries he has sustained slowing him down now and the realization that he cant run in the NFL like college without getting hit hard a lot when running the ball it doesn't help matters.
ESPN had a stat on RG3`s first game back that 7 of 10 of his in-completions were well off target. It also doesn't help that the Redskins offensive line is ranked 23rd. With the Redskins oline as bad as it is I still think Cousins is a better fit until they fix the online. Even if the Redskins do fix the oline I cant see RG3 being the Redskins future. He isnt a pocket passer and he needs to run to make his passing plays. The more he does that the more he is going to take huge hits.
Kaepernick is another example he is a running qb and needs to run to make his passes. he isn't a pocket passer. Whats worse for the 49`s is their offensive line is ranked 31`st.So Kaep`s numbers are going to stay down until they fix the oline.If they dont he is going to start getting hurt like RG3 has.
Buffalo has the worst offensive line. Ranked 32nd.
As far as Geno goes I'm not so sure he does suck. Some of you cant come to terms that this is still a rebuilding year and the offensive line needs a huge overhaul.Its absolutely terrible.
Unless you have an absolutely elite qb the qb depends greatly on the offensive line There aren't many young qb`s that can come into the league and play well
The Jets offensive line.....
(26th) ranked offensive line overall
(9th) WORST in the league with sacks allowed (21 sacks)
(6th) WORST in the league with qb hits allowed (40 qb hits)
(10th) WORST in the league for tackles for lost yardage (30 tackles for lost yardage)
All that shows the teams offensive line is pure sh!t. This is also why the running game has been going down hill.
2007 (ranked 29th) and 1999 (27th) were the only years that the oline was worse. 2012 (25th). Other than those three years and this year the oline has been at least average if not very good
Geno has very good mechanics, throws a fairly accurate ball, scans the field and defense pre and post snap, and doesn't stare down receivers but how can any of you expect a qb with very little NFL experience that is getting hammered constantly to play consistently well behind a horrid offensive line
Vick`s many years of experience is whats helping him right now but with this terrible online dont be surprised if he gets hurt before the year is over.
Other than the QB the core of every team in the league is the oline and dline.
