Alex was ranked 9th in QB ranking. He went 14 - 4. Led his team to the NFC Championship. But for KW's fumbles we would have been in the Super Bowl. He had one of the highest QB rankings of playoff QB's. 5 TD's and 0 Int's in the playoffs. 4 pass, 1 rush and 0 int's. He will be tough to unseat.
Wasnt Dilfer replaced after "leading" his team to a SB?
dilfer didnt make history by bring only qb in nfl history to have 2 scoring drives in last 3 minutes
and dilfer didnt have 5 td 0 int in playoffs either
Alex played better than Dilfer in his Super Bowl year. With 1 year in the system and no offseason. Don't get the Dilfer comparison. Alex is better than that.
The Dilfer comparison is being no differently than those making the comparison to top 5 QBs who have been top 5 QBs for several years. My point is that the Saints game is being used as a holy grail but during all these years it was mentioned that QBs like Cleo Lemon can even have these types of games but why couldn't Alex. Alex did and he's all of a sudden annointed as a top QB but in reality, he is more likely to be a Anderson, Delhome, or even a Matt Moore in 2012 than he is to be a Drew Brees or even a Rivers.
This is why it is not out of the realm of Kaep winning the job. Just heard on 95.7 that the coaches are very high on Kaep and Eric Davis, teams radio announcer, even said the kid is looking very good and the coaches are liking him.
