This is promising for Alex because these two throws came after a set where Smith made a good throw and then had two horrible plays. He walked away with his head down and it felt like the previous years again, but then he came back on his next chance and threw A great throw to Vernon with 3 defenders around him. Then the good throw to jones and jones made a great catch on. Then the next set, the flea flicker play to Jones. It was awesome. Never saw Alex do this well overall in all the previos practices I've been to which is like 7 or 8.
This is where Alex will continue to excel over the course of camp to separate himself from Hill. If you want to strike fast and deep, your man is Alex as much as I want Hill to be able to do the same thing. He's just not built that way.
The question is can Alex keep up with Hill on the short routes and minimize his INTs. If he does, Alex can further separate from Hill.
I was hoping to hear about deep connections like these. We surely haven't seen deep, oh dare I say accurate, balls down field 30 - 50 yards deep since the 2006 and 2007 TC except these seem better.
That only bodes well for us. Let's see if he can keep it up. After all, it is only the first day of practice.
