Sing put a QB in these last few games that probably didn't feel he was going to be around next year.
So you have a QB that will probably not take any chances with passes....and would rather check it down or throw a short pass than take a chance to throw it past 15 yards.
if he does and it gets picked, Alex looks bad again......if Alex doesn't take chances and checks it down, it looks like the coaching is doing a horrible job not getting our receivers open with playcalling.....which is probably also true.
we are down by 24pts with zero points and our season is still alive....and yet Alex is still not taking chances....I think that is telling of where his mind is..
but Sing deserves this so I don't give a fuuuuu.
Very interesting, I never looked at it from that perspective.
now I'm not saying Alex is sabotaging the team or anything...I'm sure he is going out there to win games and make the playoffs...which would also help his cause.
BUT...if we are down by a 10-14pts...I don't see him trying to getting us back in there, by threading the needle...if a guy is WIDE open, sure he'll take it....but other wise, I don't see him trying to take a chance..and a result might look bad out there....mainly if he feels we have a horrible coaching staff....an't worth it to him....that is why I say he an't an idiot.....but Sing is.
