Very little could make me NFL-happier in April.

Geno doesn't have the me-first attitude that Cam does, he's smarter than Cam and he's invested in the game completely unlike Cam.

So a Cam comparison is kind of a stretch.

You're right. One was clutch carrying his team to their first ever BCS Championship in an undefeated season.

The other completely pissed his team out of any form of contention.

I'm really looking forward to the latter coming to AFCW.

Maybe "Red Drank" this time?

Again, this class is extremely weak on the offensive side and at QB in terms of those franchise type players.
Matt Barkley was the #1 overall pick back in September, and now he's a fringe first rounder I think.
There are some decent prospects, but none of them that absolutely wow you and say "You have to take this guy!".
Smith seems the best to me, I never understood why Landry Jones gets downvoted so much when he's had similar paths and strengths/weaknesses to all the other QB's like Wilson and Barkley.

They're ALL fringe first rounders. Not even a Sam Bradford or Stafford among them. GREAT year for the Chiefs to draft #1.

Well Rev,I see you have never watched a WVU game before. If you did, maybe you'd see that their defense is the worst in college football, his running game is non-existent, his OL is average at best, his ST's has given up 3 TD's as well as his kicker not being able to make chip shots and his HC has no idea how to fix any of it.

Geno put his team in a position to win twice against TCU and multiple times vs OU.

But hey, I guess that's Geno's fault too.

Like all other Chief fans, you can convince yourself of anything. No need to think for yourself at all. Just read a mock draft that shows the Chiefs picking a QB and proudly proclaim...Thats my guy!!! No wait.....Thats my guy!!! No wait....Thats my guy!!!

Barkley was a great pick, but I jumped off his bandwagon when I found out that he was cheating.

He had great arm strength because USC ball boys deflated the ball some.

I still think he can be an Andy Dalton like QB in a good situation. He's really smart and has leadership.

I think it's pretty silly that everybody here thinks these QB's are the next Brady Quinn/JaMarcus Russell.

So what? Because his Mom "wished he could skip a grade." And his visions beyond his years? What does that even mean? How does that make him better than Cam Newton?

Ryan Fitzpatrick is a genius and scored the highest ever on the wonderlic. That doesn't make him a football genius.

He's an extremely smart guy who has always proven to understand things better than everyone in school. He's proven his football IQ at college. He's played in the spread and a completely different system with a ton of pro style plays/looks and looked great in both.

Ryan Fitzpatrick was a horrible QB in college and he played in the Ivy League. He doesn't have the talent Geno does.

Because it's an incredibly long laundry list of "lol you're not a #1 pick", but for a sample:

How about inconsistent mechanics and the subsequent accuracy issues that he's exhibited especially downfield, entirely shotgun experience, backfoot penchant without a "Cutler" tier arm to compensate. His gaudy numbers are a reflection of the passing scheme and Big-12 more than anything else. His "athleticism" will get exposed at the combine.

Also, for every ONE Clemson game, there's two Texas Tech and K-State.

They could be. It's all a crapshoot really. Guess I don't see Geno as someone that has a better skill set then Sam Bradford or Cam Newton even. I think if either talent was available in this class, they would go #1

That's a great throw and shows that he's not just a spread QB, too.

Keep digging the hole. There are dozens and dozens of snaps of this kid going through more than one read but you're sticking your head in the sand. Probably because you're scared ****less of the Chiefs getting a franchise QB for once.
Just curious what you will do if your new GM disagrees with you on this guy, and passes on him? Maybe he will trade for Flynn instead? You never know.
