One of these days, he will throw deep multiple times and get 300 yards. I remember when it was said that he doesn't have big numbers because of his low attempts.
Is he still considered efficient at 59% while throwing 3 INT's to 7 TD's?
If not for penalties and drops Alex would have had over 300 yards passing in several of the games. Vs Titans he hit Bowe down the sidelines with a beauty intermediate pass that Bowe took like 60 yards to the house but was called back because of a borderline call foot on the white line would have put him over 300 yards passing.
But again who gives a f**k about how many yards a QB throws for as long as he makes plays and does what it takes to win games. Perfect case in point ...49ers vs Saints 2011 playoffs...Brees throws lights out for 500 yards and 4 TD's and Alex in one of the best performances I have seen from a 49ers QB still game managed the 49ers to a win. You play the game to win and win as a team you don't play the game to pad stats for fantasy leagues.
