The irony here is that a 15/20 120 yard performance from Rodgers, Brees, Brady, Manning, Rivers, etc. would be considered garbage. Coming from Alex, the majority of fans consider it a godsend aka Alex has arrived.
Give me a break people. Are you telling me that after 7 years, you still think Alex can outperform the opposition on a need-to basis ?! In other words, had he been facing the Dolphins on Monday night, and the Dolphins decided to have an off-day and put up monster offensive numbers (including 300 yards from Henne), you think Alex could match that intensity ?
He performed "admirably" against the one team lower than us on the totem pole. The defense kept us in it; if Seattle had even half a QB (like Hassleback), this would have been a repeat of last year's opener.
Same old Alex.......short passes on downs where big yardage is required, checkdowns to the closest receiver, etc.
I wonder how long before Braylon Edwards throws a temper tantrum and you folks start labeling him a bust receiver (aka Antonio Bryant) just to protect Alex.
