The offense had to be conservative because Alex is not a QB you want throwing alot. The more times he drops back the more times a fumble or INT is waiting to happen. He is too inconsistent.
#2 Our WR's are not subpar. This is why I would love to get a proven winner at QB to show that it is not the WR's
#3 IF we keep our defense together and add to it, the best case scenario is looking like the Ravens. Great D and mediocre O. Playoff appearances but no rings. It's a waste to be like that.
#1 makes no sense. He had the lowest interception rate in the NFL and was very good at holding onto the ball. The first play in the Detroit game is a great example that Harbaugh remarked upon. As for our struggles in the red zone, I believe they had much more to do with the lack of an offseason in Harbaugh's system and the collapse of our run game in short yardage situations, combined with the decline of our WRs. Before this season, Alex was an excellent red zone quarterback.
#2 is just patently false. The entire league recognizes we are weak at WR, and we might've had the worst collection of WRs seen in the playoffs in decades.
