i dont think our line is that bad,, they are bad,, but not terrible,, its just Alex has no pocket awareness at all,,,
Please explain and point out with visual evidence what you're talking about, from Sunday's game.
That last statement would be more accurate if you just took out the word "awareness". The fact that Alex is on pace to set career highs in rushing tells me he has plenty of pocket awareness, as that shows that when the pocket is breaking down he has found ways to get out and pick up positive yardage.
Passers with poor pocket awareness often have a lot of fumbles from season to season. Smith's fumble totals have been very low the past few years, evidence that supports the idea of a large number of sacks coming from straight up poor OL play, and not a lack of pocket awareness on the part of the QB.
