I just think it's funny how in the past, the rating was used against Alex but now that his is up there with the best, some are trying to devalue the rating.
The thing is, it wasnt JUST quarterback rating that was used against Alex in the past. It was:
- Quarterback rating
- W-L record
- Lack of touchdowns
- Touchdown to turnover ratio
- Completion %
Its funny to me how the AFC is desperately trying to throw certain things in us detractors faces, yet its been 4 games. 3.5 of which Alex played average to below average football. I have been the first detractor to admit that he has been MUCH better and I hope to see him continue to take strides in his game. I just feel like the AFC has been taking stats/plays/our record and completely blowing them out of proportion to make Alex seem great. Hes been better. He still hasnt been good-great. Half of a game does not make up for the first 3.5 games, or the last 6 years.
