Joe Montana, Steve Young, in days of yore, both 2 of the best QBs in the league during their playing days. Ben Rothlisberger, Peyton, Brady, Brees, Rivers, Palmer...are the best at their positions today, and the first 3 are going to be locks in the HOF. What is they have in common? Watch any series they play, and they all pump fake. Which brings us to alex: crappy OL, no real time, but what if he routinely used a pump fake, even if it was to the guy he was staring down? No question in my mind it would incr his percentage, because good pump fakes usually give the receiver just a second to get open.
Pump fakes work best if you stare at one guy, or two, and then throw to another. It would have to be quick because this OL doesn't give him much, if any time, but i can't believe it wouldn't help him break his bad habit of staring down (telegraphing) a receiver until the guy gets doubled.
Jimmy Rae, HC, QB coach...Please work on alex to use the pump fake like all the top flite Qbs do. The worst it could do would be to make his completion % go up. I sure don't see any downsides...but it better be quick. Frankly , i am disappointed that alex doesn't already have our qB coach working with him on this. Hey, if our OL can't passblock, then alex has to do something else by himself to get our receivers open...but quickly, before the OL gets him mauled.
