Excellent points. Take Alex off our team and put him on Seattle's, they could easily win the division next year. That's how he could haunt us. Not by putting up 30 points against our D specifically, but by going to a team that is probably a good QB away from 10+ wins. With their defense Alex would probably only need 17-20 points to beat us, especially with Kaepernick or some journeyman like Orton replacing him.
If they had Alex and we had Tarvaris going into last season, at best we'd be 1-1 against them, perhaps 0-2 even with Ginn's 2 return TDs, because Tarvaris (the guy with the better career QB rating - oh wow!) had 3 turnovers in that game. So just off those two games, they could've closed the gap from 6 games behind to 2 behind. Say bye to the bye, instead travel to New Orleans and our season is over right there.
Im sorry but the bold is nothing but speculation. I know Seattles D isnt bad, but it certainly isnt nearly as great as ours. Saying Tavaris would have had 3 turnovers if the players were switched is nothing you can prove. Plus, you act as if Alex played 2 good games against Seattle. Just like the majority of our wins, Alex was not the reason we were 2-0 against the Hawks.
They have 3 pro bowl DBs and a good DLine, they damn well have a good defense. You're in denial buddy.
