It took him 5 years to develop into an average QB.
An average QB who couldn't develop any sort of timing with his #1 WR after 12 weeks of practicing with him. But hey, that's all Crabtree's fault for missing training camp because there's no way a QB should be expected to develop better timing after only 12 weeks of practicing with a receiver, right?
Alex couldn't put the ball in the right spot for Crabtree even in week 17 of the season! After 3 months of throwing to him every day in practice!
(By the way, I know Crabtree played 11 games, not 12, but he started practicing with Alex the week BEFORE he made his first start.)
I don't like it when I find myself having to put Alex down on this site, but it seems like people either hate him or ride his nuts, both in excess. I can understand the timing being off for the first few weeks, maybe even the first month, but if you can't develop chemistry with a guy you throw to every single day in practice, then it's probably a problem on the QB's end. The excuses made for Alex never end. I wish him success, but the people on this site that back him are just as bad as they think the anti-Alex crowd is.
In my opinion, we still don't have our QB of the future.
