the other play that frustrated me was when charles split wide and was covered by a linebacker...smith saw the mismatch and when charles went deep he put the ball too close to the sideline and it was out of bounds....like a mistreated dog i think smith is still hesitant to risk a pick, yet if he put the ball more towards the inside of charles it is a big play and probable score
Oh, I agree.. yet I did mention that play in my post that you quoted... you just were more descriptive than I.

Agree that ball was not placed well. However, every QB misses on a certain number of passes during a game. The standard for Smith is no different than for any other. It is just that now everyone seems to look at him under a microscope on every play while Peyton the Great just misfires once in a while. They are both human and will miss on occasion.
Agree with this as well. Alex throws so few deep passes.. that when they miss even slightly, folks really dig deep into them. Whereas other QBs miss a few per game too, but they throw a handful more that do connect... so the missed ones are often forgotten.
