Geno Smith did run a version of the spread offense at West Virginia. However, he was considered a pocket-passer heading into the 2013 NFL Draft.
The guy can literally make every throw. He has the arm strength and shows flashes of accuracy that deliver first-round talent.
This is the type of versatility NFL organizations are looking for in their franchise QB.
What plagues Smith is what’s between the ears.
Many question his learning ability and decision making on the field. He’ll make one brilliant play and then come up with three of the worst decisions of all-time.
Hopefully, new offensive coordinator – and serious veteran of the league – Chan Gailey can help him.
What’s good about Gailey is that his offense is completely adjustable. He doesn’t stick to one idea or personnel package. He builds offense around the players on the team, not the other way around.
This is something that has gotten lost in the league in recent years. Hopefully Bowles made the right call with this offensive coordinator.
