Hey, some QBs have the ability to make other players better, Alex isn't one of those guys, he needs a solid team around him.
Alex is the type of player that does best when he knows what's going on around him, and when he knows the scheme. I'm sure Alex will do quite fine when the plays develop as they should.
The problem I've had with Alex is that when plays broke down, he's always looked lost and would force his throws. I just haven't seen him with that kind of "magic" or the ability to pull something out of his ass, like we've grown accustomed to from Joe, Steve, and sometimes Jeff. You could definitely point to our lack of an O-line as part of what has stunted Alex's growth, but we've had s**tty lines in the past. Heck, I thought noodle-arm Shaun Hill did better with what he had than Alex did, even with the ducks he threw.
I'm just tired of 3 and outs. That's all. Go Alex. Show us what you're made of.
