Geno Smith is back to his WVU form. After a career plagued with wrong place at the wrong time, he has finally found his perfect match. The Florida native has stepped in for the Seattle Seahawks and taken off.
Many around the nation have began to take notice, as well. Dan Orlovsky, an analyst on ESPN’s Get Up, tabbed Smith as an early-season MVP candidate earlier this morning.
"There is no quarterback that has more perfect throws in every game than Geno Smith. … That's why he's right in the MVP race."

“There is no quarterback that has more perfect throws in every game than Geno Smith…That’s why he’s right in the MVP race.”
Smith has completed 181 of 249 passes for 1,924 yards and 13 touchdowns to only 3 interceptions. He has also added 158 rushing yards and one touchdown on the ground.
His play has elevated him into some elite company.

He is currently ranked first in the league in completion percentage, third in passer rating, and third in touchdown to interception ratio.
That sounds like MVP caliber play to me, folks.
Mountaineer Nation has always known that Smith has had this level of play in him. Being easily the best pure passer in WVU Football history, Smith has all of the intangibles to be successful in the NFL. It just took his moment to shine a little bit longer to alive.
Do you agree with Olovsky? Has Smith earned MVP talk?
