There's no doubt Geno Smith is a very good collegiate quarterback. He may even become a great pro quarterback. But, before the start of the 2010 season there was much speculation surrounding his play. All that speculation went out there door on September 10th.
Marshall was just eight minutes from their first ever win over WVU. Leading 21-6, the Herd were just about to ice it, when they fumbled in the red zone. That fumble led to one hell of a comeback. Geno Smith put together two of the finest fourth quarter drives in recent memory...one from 96-yards, the other from 98. Two touchdowns, an extra point, and a 2-point conversion later, we were headed to OT. WVU would eventually win in the extra frame, and a star was born.
This video shows how solid Smith is at the position. He has very good vision, a solid arm, and moves in the pocket well. Geno was getting absolutely blasted in that game, but kept making the throws. It will be scary to see him in the new Dana Holgorsen offense.
Quick note: Watch Noel Devine's vision on his touchdown run. It's quite a move to get in from where he was, and who was in front of him.
