The guy hasn't played the last two years. He lost his starting position to not very good quarterbacks, so it is very questionable on whether he can be a winning NFL quarterback. He got back in the lineup this year because the previous starter was not getting it done, so he was next in line.
So now all of a sudden he is Peyton Manning, and should run the offense? LOL, that is not reality, and it aint gonna happen.
Two years? He had 193 attempts in 2007, albeit his arm felt like it was falling off for 110 of those.
Also, he never lost his job as Starting Quarterback. He was injured for most of 2007 and all of 2008.
OK, on that note, I fully expect Singletary & Raye to fully trust him to call the plays starting next week. Yeah, I am sure they started talking about that right after the last press conference after the Bears game when they scored ten points, and the coach said "I think Alex managed the game".
I can easily see how one could assume that really meant, "We think Alex is so good now, that we are just going to let him call the plays".
And be serious. He lost his starting job twice...to JTO & Shaun Hill. Reality. It really did happen. They said there would be competition, because he was not good enough to be a clear choice for starter.
