There was no crux. I said"for the most part, he improved". He has shown more than any QB in this division.

I'm sorry, but this was the crux of your argument. Statistically, it is incorrect.

No it wasn't. He had a slightly lower completion percentage and the INT/TD ratio was near the same. His yards increased, TD's increased. He only decreased in completion percentage. With only 3 more games played in 2010, he went from being sacked 3 times to 15 times. So in 3 more games, he was sacked an average of 5 per game more...yet he kept his stats comparable to the previous year.

He got worse in every meaningful statistical category... yards per attempt, touchdown percentage, interception percentage, touchdown to interception ratio....

How about you show me an area in which he actually improved?

I also find the fact that you keep coming up with excuses for his poor performance amusing.

You say he got worse and I say the difference wasn't by much.

Now you ignored that he got sacked 5 more times per game than the previous year yet his drop-off wasn't by much. That's not bad. Imagine Alex's stats if he starts 3 more games last year but gets sacked 15 more times. I have a feeling Alex Smith's numbers would be FAR below a 60% completion percentage.
