This is a fast paced league. In 2013 as a QB drafted in a situation like Genos you are expected to perform well from the jump. You don't have to have Cam Newton or Andrew Luck rookie seasons, but you do have to show some signs of being a franchise QB.
Geno has done absolutely nothing but embarrass himself this year.. the criticism is completely valid.
Geno is one the MAIN reasons we won the games we won. You have no clue what you're talking about
When I watch Geno...I see a dude that has completely lost his confidence and a coaching staff that doesn't trust him. It looks like Rex is using the pressure on him and putting it on Geno by putting a collar around his neck.
you cant pull the race card on this ..
Mark Sanchez got k!lled last year by the media last year
Sanchez had 4 years to fail. No one is saying non-black Qbs are never criticized...the argument from some of us(including myself) is that Black Qbs are held on a shorter leash and the call for a replacement is almost always a white guy and hardly the other way around
I judge all Qbs equally and I don't necessarily see how great Qbs are as black & white. But I am also aware of how black Qbs are and have been judged in this league. We need to be open to the possibility instead of dismissing it because we hate making things racial. The country's history is racial...many people's views are consciously/sub-consciously shaped racially, even if that doesn't include you & me
2013 is no different than 2012, 2011, or 2010 when qbs like bradford, gabbert, ponder, locker were taken in the first round and put into the starting lineup and expected to produce. None of them have done sh*t in the league despite all being first round picks, higher than geno and with presumably higher expectations. Of those four qbs i just mentioned who has actually shown signs of being a franchise qb and how many of them have been labeled a bust?
And like I've pointed out with Andrew Luck...I'm not saying that Luck SHOULD be criticized. I believe he's a great guy with great intangibles who will have long term success. All I've been saying is...if you're going to criticize RGIII & Cam Newton when they're playing like crap....if you're going to call McNabb a choker who didn't accomplish anything when he was in the league...extend the same equal criticism or praise EQUALLY. Cam, RGIII, & Luck are not criticized equally. I barely hear any criticism in the media of how he's been playing without Reggie Wayne. Boxden maybe...but the media has been silent when they wouldn't be if it was Cam, RGIII, etc.
You just mentioned 4 Qbs who barely got any media criticism when they falled short. Colin Kaepernick of all people got more criticism than they ever did and he made it to the Superbowl last year
