Don't want to be presumptuous, but I think this guy's gonna be in for a rude awakening

On watching tape of Darrelle Revis: "I mean, I don't think it's necessary," Smith said. "Maybe I will, maybe I won't. You pretty much get the idea of what kind of player he is based on his reputation."

How ironic is it that Revis probably feels that it is more important that he watch tape of Geno than vice versa.

A lot of folks here clamored for the Bills to draft  Geno though. Maybe he will surprise us and actually look good lol.

My high school biology teacher used to preach the 5P's to us:

Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance...

Geno needs to learn that pretty quickly

You know it!! Loved that guy...favorite teacher ever...demanded a lot of you but made learning fun...

Had him for biology and AP Bio where over half the class got a "5" on the test(including me), which is a huge accomplishment for a college level class...

He needs to watch film of Tampa's defense, not necessarily of Revis. Not a big deal to me.

I dont watch college.  He was projected pick number one at one point.   Then kept slipping.  Since I wanted a qb with first pick, I would have been ok with him.

But so far I think the bills got it right with Ej.

Geno smith had 3 ints in one game.  Yuck.

That's very dangerous way of making decisions.

My problem with Geno from the start was his attitude. When WV started playing poorly, he hung his head. What kind of leader does that? If the Jets struggle (which breaking news, they will) how will he handle the adversity? he says he has learned, but me thinks he was coached up on the 2nd meeting to improve his stock

Anyone hear what Revis said about Geno? Wondering why Geno isn't studying him.

There was an adjective to Poor Performance

There's no quicker way to lose the respect of your teammates than poor work ethic and attitude.

Winning cures all. If this guy plays well and they win, he'll be a poster boy for a great QB. If he fails, the bad attitude stuff will be the storyline.

It would be better investment of Geno's time to watch Tampa game tape and see what looks that defense will give him.  Not sure what to make of this statement.

It also doesnt hurt to know what their best player on defense is like...
