That is exactly how the zone responded to Bradford's rookie year as well as Matt Ryan's, so why is this such a reach on my part? When QBs do well under Alex-like circumstances they are stripped of any credit for what they've done, and all the credit goes to their surrounding cast and coaching. Meanwhile, when Alex plays s**tty, he is stripped of responsibility, and all the accountability goes to his surrounding cast and coaching. LOL!
This has me , because it is sooo true...
as sure as I'm sitting here typing now, that is what people when say if/when Kolb plays well this year. He was familiar with the system, he got to play behind Vick, he has Whizenhunt, he has Fitzgerald, etc. To give credit to Kolb and other QB's is to beg the question as to why Smith can't do the same, therefore the only escape hatch is to strip Kolb, Ryan, Flacco, Roethlisberger, Bradford, etc credit of coming in and having a hot hand in year 1 and staying that way.
