This reminds me of when everyone was saying Clipboard Jesus was the guy when he lead the touchdown drive versus the Rams that sent us to the playoffs back in 2010. Haha
Granted Geno is much better than Charlie Whitehurst ever was but I still need to see it on a consistent basis and against stiffer competition like the Eagles and 49ers.
Absolutely no one said that at all. If anything that performance consolidated his backup status.
As I've said, the better comp to Geno is Matt Hasselbeck who with a great run game and OL did everything you needed from a QB. Geno is not going to scramble his way to elite status. he's going to need protection. If we build that for him, he'll win games.
There are only a handful of QB's that can seemingly win games on their own. The rest of the NFL deals with regular QB's that need a little help around them. They still succeed.
