Seems like a nice young man. I think he's going to be successful in NY for a long time to come.

"[Geno Smith's] gonna be one of the best quarterbacks to ever play football"


Err... I consider myself a Geno Optimist, but even for me, seems like Calvin's been drinking a little too much green kool-aid...

@funkymonk He must have played him a few times right?  West Virginia and Louisville are/were in the same conference.


Gonna look up the stats.

Yep, seems they faced off in 2011.


Geno threw for over 400 yards and 3TDs so I can see why Pryor was impressed.


Pryor had six tackles and a pass defensed as Louisville won 38-35.

@Bent Nice research, thanks!


I mostly took it as Pryor just trying to be positive and say nice things about his teammates. But if Geno does end up being one of the best QBs of all time, you heard it from Calvin Pryor first!

@a57se @Bent @funkymonk None, but he's played against several players who did go on to be successful in the NFL, so if Smith impressed him more than those players in college I can see why he would make such a prediction (although I do agree it's totally over the top).

@funkymonk @Bent lol, Geno was a beast in College, sure he had Bailey and Austin, but still, there were other QB's with as much talent at receiver or more and didn't put up the same kind of numbers. If all we did was add Pryor to the secondary, that makes our defense a whole lot better, I hope he can be an intimidating force down the middle, where receivers will hear the foot steps and lose focus on the ball.
