What would you give these guys....
Schaub, Cutler, Rivers, Sanchez, McNabb, Peyton, Brees, Rodgers, Orton, Vick and Ryan
By many of your standards, you should be giving nearly 50% of the QB's an A every week.
That doesn't seem like you are being critical enough.
But of course this is Homerism, I am sure many of you will find many many faults in the guys above listed game 2 performances
I could give a Rat's furry ass about the other guys Danimal. I would still give Alex the A based on what he did all game long.
Without that pesky Delay of Game penalty brought about by Davis's loss of focus Alex would have once again carved up the Saints like a turkey.
ANd this is not Homerism on my part. This is Smith not doing this before over a whole game and imho, it was indeed worthy of an A. Since there is no -/+ grade in the options then I gotta give him an A. If there were I would take into consideration the 2 turnovers and downgrade for them even though in this case shat happens and give him an A- overall. Since there isn't, anything less than an A is not indicative of what he did on the field.
Not giving a Rats furry ass about how well your competitors do is EXACTLY how you get on a 7 year playoff drought.
So maybe you should start caring
I edited my original post and now listed 13 QB's who played better than Alex last week, at least debatably or statistically speaking. And 10 of those guys won their games.
Thats the problem with Alex supporters. I have been saying this for years. You guys don't pay enough attention to the other QB's in the world. There are, were and will be better options for the Niners. That is if you can let go. Which the Niners can't, and some fans can't. Which is why they deserve to lose.
The goal is to outplay those other guys you don't give a rats furry ass about.
