    Oh no, we suck again!

    He was not bad overall against the Bucs.

    Since when is 24-38 for 256 yards 1 TD and 1 pick bad overall?

    He did enough to be decent but if you can look at him and not be concerned with his pocket awareness, footwork and accuracy, then you don't know what your seeing.

    All stuff that can be worked on. Every QB has things they need to improve on 3 games into their career.

    At 2-1 and watching Geno play i've seen plenty of bad but plenty of good as well. And for a rookie QB, I will take it.

    Geno is second in INTs next to Eli Manning.
    Once Dmac is drafted a Dmac Jersey will spontaneously materialize in the closet of each and every Dolfan...

    ...and not that replica crap either...

    He's much better than sanchez...at least you dont have to hold your breath each time he drops back to pass.

    It will be fun seeing what he's made of the next several games.

    Agreed but the question is whether or not he has the discipline and focus to put in the work required.

    The kid is still a rookie. It is way too early to make sweeping pronouncements. When Peyton was a rookie, he led the league in interceptions. When Brady was a rookie, he was fourth string (who here can name the Pats 3rd string qb in 2000?).

    Both EJ and Geno have the physical tools to succeed. Getting used to the speed of the pro game and getting on the same page as everyone else takes time. In many ways I cut them the same slack I cut the Pats wrs.

    Agreed.

    Fact that he is better then Sanchez is huge. Even if Geno is the 21st or 22nd best QB in the league our team will be better by a large margin. We've had one of the bottom 3 QB's in the league for a long time. Geno just being decent makes us a lot better as a team. Biggest thing is he needs to stop turning the ball over.

    Of course. But until I see a reason to doubt that he wont do that i'm not expecting him not to work just as hard as every other QB in the league to get better. I don't question anyones work ethic until they give me a reason to.
