mark this down., Nas is a better QB prospect than Geno Smith. Nas is smarter and more well spoken.
If he develops into a starter quality QB then he will leave the Giants via free agency. David Carr is the better back up right now probably for the next 2 years. Nass won't get the playing time he needs to develop fully. At the least Eli has 6 years left. It's a bit premature to look for his successor IMO.
As long as Sanchez is still stinking up the joint, the Giants will be way better at QB...
We gave up two #1 picks and more to get Eli, so I sure hope he's better than Sanchez. The Jets obviously made a mistake with Sanchez, but that was another GM's mistake.
Regarding Nas and Geno, they were hired for different reasons. Jets are still looking for their starter. They hired a good QB, who potentially can fill the QB role, this year and going forward. There is no need to detract from their pick at this time. I'll bet every team had Geno rated higher than Nassib.
I am denfensive on Smith at all. He's a Jet and thats his problem. I like the Nassib draft too. I like the fact that the Giants may have a potentially productive back up. They never really have in Eli's tenure. Carr is done IMO. Great team guy but thats abotu it. At least with Nassib there is a clean slate and an unknown.
As far as their individual personalities....the Giants 90% of the time draft for character as well as potential/talent. Thats their MO for the last several seasons.
Geno Smith will get a good dose of humble pie this preseason. That may get his perceived attitude in order. If it doesnt then he is done before he even starts.
I also am willing to bet Nassib will be better then Barkley. I am not sure he will be better then Glennon or Wilson though. I also like Landry Jones. It really will depend on if the Giants ship him somewhere and where that place is. I liked EJ Manuel, until he went to Buffalo. If he went to Miami or San Diego, he would of had a better shot IMO.
Geno wont be able to handle the NY pressure, especially in that Jets circus. Barkley will be a backup option in Philly, behind Vick this year and I feel next year Chip Kelly will get his future QB. There was just too much value for them not to get Barkley where they did, like we did with Nassib.
Personally, I would of waited till the 7th round to get our backup QB in Matt Scott or Jordan Rodgers. I feel like those 2 would of been adequate choices for us in the situation we are in.
