While I know our obsession around here seems to focus on game-winning catches. I want to think outside of the box on this one. It was 3rd and 7, Alex runs it in from 28 yards out. The score is 24-23 New Orleans at that point in the game.
That run did something to Alex, I cannot explain it. Those of you who watched the game know what I am talking about. We all go through moments in our life where we change. This was his moment. I am telling you, he is different. And I know for a fact that somewhere, Steve Young is smiling. Because Steve loves talking about QBs that have moxie. Alex has it. He has shown it. Steve can especially appreciate this because of his own struggles and turmoil as he fought to earn the respect of the fan base, and more importantly, himself. And it is fitting that in an organization that has had two excellent hall of fame QBs that Alex proved himself not once, but twice.
