All our other QB had to do was not get shutout and all our defense had to do was not give up 4 or 5 big plays.
Alex is the last guy that needs to be dissected after that loss
Exactly..... there's no doubting the pass fluttered and was intercepted but with that said "fluttered passes" aren't overthrown... they are underthrow, (i.e. meant for Davis) who was past the coverage. You can see Davis expecting the ball and when it "fluttered" short because of Alex needing that extra half second to get it all the way down field, the inside pass rush disrupts his throw and it comes up short because of this.
Now it is stupid to argue why he didn't go to Morgan... simple... Morgan wasn't open and by the time Alex was making his throw, the coverage saw this and dropped back making Morgan looking a bit more open by the time Alex releases the ball; remember he had to windup to get it down the field that far but the inside collapses before he is able to really step into it.
The excitement was awesome to come back from so far behind and to see our D step up the 2nd half and almost pitch a shutout but lets just hope the momentum carries over to next week.
