Because he throws into triple coverage.


Yeah, not the greatest decision, especially as the WR on the right side of the field looks open, but certainly a great throw.

But those are interceptions in the NFL, not to mention against NFL defensive backs his receiver would have gotten his head taken off. Terrible decision making right there.

He was in the back of his endzone and was 1 second from getting sacked and safetied. He made an incredibly clutch throw, look at the gif again. That is potential right there. If your just looking at the throw then yes it looks bad. But the situation needs to be taken into account as well..And this pass was on a 3 step drop as well. You have to give someone a chance to make a play. Do remember he will have NFL wide receivers as well. So you can't really say he want just have to deal with "NFL" safeties..you could say that for any college player.

So being under pressure gives a quarterback an excuse to throw into triple coverage? Good to know.

Three NFL DB's > One NFL WR...

He already has two future NFL WRs on his team.

The sarcasm isn't neccesary. The throw was caught and that's what matters. I can dissect flaws in every QB of every draft, but that would being pessimistic and doesn't prove anything. You aren't posting constructive reasons to why he couldn't be in the league, just nitpicking at smaller details..

First of all that isn't "triple coverage." It's bracket man (CB/LB), with a safety sliding over late to help.

Second that throw was perfectly placed in the window, where none of those three defenders could get it...under pressure...from his own endzone.

People trying to nitpick that throw have no idea what to look for.

What the hell is wrong with the throw other than defenders being near his man?

Was it the picture perfect footwork in the back of his own endzone with two rushers about to hit him? Was it the perfect rotation on the ball? The touch that's required to fit it in an area where only his receiver could adjust to catch that pass?

That's not an interception in the NFL either, none of those DB's were in position to catch that pass, because of how accurate the throw was.

Saying "well it could have been." Or "Well IF" There is no if. That was a perfect pass, under pressure, with three defenders near the ball, right into his receivers hands. That's why he's the #1 QB.

I must agree.

he isnt near the back of his endzone, he is in the middle of it. He doesnt even make a read he is looking left the whole time, had he been making a read he would have seen the wr to his right wide open, past the sticks.

It is an amazing throw.

It's a good thing that he'd have to learn new reads anyway then! That throw was picture perfect. Could he have thrown it to the guy on a curl? Maybe. But, he threw it to an earlier read who he made a perfect pass to in a tight window for a first down under pressure. Thats an NFL throw, better than some starters too. If he progressed reads to throw to the guy on a curl, it may have been a safety, that should be considered.

On the All 22 on this play, the WR hadn't completed his sideline comeback, and wasn't open yet when Geno went to throw the ball. Also, it looks like this play was a hi/lo read, and Steadman Bailey was clearly open when Smith releases the ball.

Geno Smith

350/490
71.4 comp percentage
4004 passing yards
40 Touchdowns
6 Interceptions


Those are impressive numbers even in the WAC let alone a legitimate BCS conference. I know they don't play defense like they do in the SEC in the Big 12, (although see Geno Smith's impressive performance vs LSU as a sophmore) but those are unheard of numbers.

There are very few QBs who have passed for 40 passing touchdowns in a BCS Conference and none of them have as few interceptions as Geno Smith has had this year

Geno Smith depending on how he plays in his Bowl game has a chance to finish with a 7 to 1 TD/INT ratio which is really unheard of for a TD total even close to that high
