Basically, it wasn't Smith's fault I think.
Then whose fault was it? That was simply a terrible pass. It is the same type of decision making that has prevented him from elevating his play. Don't get me wrong, despite that play, it was his best performance as a five year pro ad provides a glimmer of hope. But the bottom line is that he has to finish.
I fully recognize that he brought the team back from a 21 point deficit. Great job Alex. But with less than 2 minutes remaining and the team needing a fg to tie, he choked. Maybe next time he will finish.
look at the goddamn video i dont think he chocked he could not step into his theow at all the D line were all 2ft from him
Son, I saw the video. First of all a qb that is in charge of his offense does not take a delay of game penalty in that situation, no matter what the sideline is doing. Watch Peyton and you will see the difference. Peyton would have called and ran a play and then b***hed about how long it took a play to be called from the sideline.
Second, as many have mentioned, Gore was open. Even if he does not see him, he is supposed to know that Gore is there. When you watch good QB's they often times get out of tight spots by knowing where their safety valve will be when the defense plays a certain way. He did not even try to look at him, but instead threw a bad pass in coverage.
Quit trying to make excuses for him. He had the best game of his five year career!!! But it still was not enough. This team is oozing with play makers and simply needs a QB to perform. as I have said, he has given us a glimmer of hope, but now it is time to finish!!!!! Win the damn game and quit turning the ball over to loose the game.
