When his RB is averaging a 2.5 average, OL penalties are in excess, and receivers are dropping passes.... and defenses are losing chunks of yardage... and the QB pulls out a few clutch drives to put the team ahead and in the win column.
To me, that's as much a "put team on back QB" as the ones that are forced to score gobs of points because their defense is sieve throughout an entire game.
Defense may have given up yardage but the D is at the top in points allowed and that is the main. Game 1 3 5 was D giving O the ball, game two, offense not moving wore out the D. Game 4, D adjusted in 2nd half and when O was doing its job, D could clamp down. Alex is doing what I hope to give them a chance, mistake free, and some timely plays.
A QB that carries a team, doesn't make a few timely plays, he makes them consistently, many times, and in at least for 3/4 of the season.
