The reason of this thread is not to discuss Alex's flaws. We already all know them and discussed the hell out of them over the years. I brought this up because I don't think there is any other coach in this league that could have made gold out of Kolb. I think Kolb is pretty average and he is only succeeding because of Reid's system and tutilage. I would bet anything if the Eagles let Kolb go and keep Vick, he will not succeed anywhere else. He is like another Matt Cassell to me. The Chiefs have had Cassell for 3 years now and he still isn't doing that great. The Chiefs are winning, but it's not because of him. I personally think Reid could have made Alex a great QB if he could make a guy like Kolb a good one.
Agreed. Not sure about great (really, who knows) but anyone saying he wouldn't have made Smith better (or even just the consistency alone wouldn't have made Smith better) is too blinded by their hatred of Smith to even be slightly reasonable about how modest the proposition is, imo.
How can Andy Ried fix his accuracy problems ??
Alex is more accurate than McChoke, and 'Choke did fine with Reid.
McNabb has one of the highest TD-INT ratio in the history of the NFL. Alex not so much.
You see the difference. McNabb doesn't make criticial mistakes, Alex makes them left and right. You guys are ignoring one criticial fact about Andy Reid. He doesn't put all of his eggs into one basket. If Alex ain't picking things up and playing at high level he'd have him replaced in a half a second. It's not like Philly has had wealth at receiver position either. Desean, Maclin they're new before that he's had 1 1,000 yard receiver and we all know that circumstance.
