Still seems that the argument is between those who want a vertical passing game versus those who want a WCO. If he wins, has a very high rating, but doesn't throw as many passes as a losing QB...that's bad? Odd perspective.

Just like the predictions of Alex being only a backup since returning from the shoulder injury. Just like the predictions that he would never be in the top 10 of all QB passer ratings.. that JT O'Sullivan, Nate Davis, and Shaun Hill were better QBs... that he could never help get us to the playoffs... that he would get Harbaugh fired with his crap play... that he would never garner a decent draft pick in trade...
Oh, how many times must you detractors eat the heaping mounds of crow that Alex serves up for you every year?
I didn't say Alex would play so bad that it would lead to his benching. The team as a whole could be terrible, Alex could get injured and the Chiefs draft/trade for another QB and go in a different direction. Many possibilities. I just don't see him as a long term solution in KC. Just my opinion, not trying to hate on the guy.

Well, this is here is frequently no fun for me. I'd just as soon have Alex's name disappear from the WZ at this point, as it is now abundantly clear that with every bit of KC info that comes in here, the detractors have to continue with their nasty, bitter, recycled hate of the QB.
It is both fascinating and horrific that the detractors so happy to see Alex gone can not simply let him be gone. Can you explain why that is?
Same reason why you won't let him go and continue to support him despite not being part of the franchise anymore. You thought highly of him others didn't. Either way that opinion doesn't just go away.
Hmm, if you think about it, the reasons are not the same... at all.
Yeah, that's a pretty bizarre response. If you disliked Alex and are glad to be rid of him, it stands to reason that you would be happier that he's gone and never (or rarely) have to speak his name. Instead, it seems people are obsessed with continuing to follow him around (even to KC forums) and try to minimize him. Makes sense that fans of his would keep an active interest... makes no sense that those disliking him would go out of their way to keep the discussion going.
Yeah, guess I shouldn't have been surprised about this at all.
