Alex has ALOT of confidence in his receivers!! 3 of the 5 INTs were tipped, and in the direction of the receivers. 2 int were targeting Crabtree. 1 vs Indy, It was a little out of reach, tipped and picked in the middle of the field. 1 vs TEN. it was a deep out route, Alex was late on the throw, but he threw it to Crabs on the sideline hoping he would make a play on it, which I could see why Alex would give Crabs a chance. Crabtree is our number 1 WR and has big time potential, Alex is feeling him out a little bit to see what Crabs can do. 1 was to Morgan on a late drive to tie up the game. I think he forced it to much there, but it was still a convertable play, It mite of even have been PI on the play as the defender came in on the back side with alot of contact. 2 were just bad throws, QBs will have bad throws every 25-50 attempts, thats just being a QB.
I don't want to put it ALL on Alex quite yet, although I think Alex basically lost us the game. With that said, I really do believe Alex does trust the WRs which is a good thing, but I wanna see him limit the mistakes and hit the OPEN man, and big games will come to our receivers off of that. I do like our aggresive approach, but we should limit the pass attempts to about 25-35 a game, I think 45 was over doing it. Gore should no matter what, have atleast 20 carriers, and that would allow us to throw off playaction and bootleg. But guys, you have to admit.. Its alot sweeter watching Alex step in the pocket, and want to make a play down field, instead of the OLD Alex which would look to scrammble to his right prematurely, and throw away the ball..
