Originally posted by boast:Alex taught the O to the rest of the team during the lockout. he has "deep" knowledge of Harbaugh's philosophy. of course he can't predict which exact play will be called. but if you don't think that knowledge wouldn't give a division rival a competitive advantage, i don't know what to tell you. go watch something the Raiders v Bucs Super Bowl and get back to me.
Bucs had the advantage of having the actual Coach that installed the Raiders offense. Big difference. Also, they openly admitted to knowing the Raiders line calls.
In my mind, if you're going up against the coach that built your offense and you're too stupid to change the line calls, you get exactly what you deserve (as the Raiders did).
And even if the opposite team knows the play they have to be able to stop it. I think we all can agree that right now the Cardinals aren't in much of a position to stop anybody.
But hey, if you want to believe that having Alex will suddenly make them competitive, far be it from me to tell you otherwise.
I'm not trying to change your mind.
