As for sacks, I wouldn't entirely fault the OL.
Alex in 8 games as a starter last year: 24 sacks.
Kap in 8 games as a starter last year: 14 sacks
Difference in 10 sacks is huge.
There have been a few that Alex took just for field positional/game situational purposes... but pretty much when he's been sacked this season, it's been pure OL fail. He has also impressively evaded some near-sacks and took off running. He had one incredible pass play in that last game.. was heavily pressured, escaped like twice, set his feet as he neared the sideline and zipped a great one into Bowe's hands at the sideline.. who actually caught it with feet in to convert! it was one of those special plays.
Of course, I don't expect YOU to believe this... but for those more interested in the truth of it.
