That's b/c he can throw that back shoulder fade to Jennings where height doesn't matter. You do have to throw guys open and we all know that is Alex's main set back. He really lacks that anticipation. Would Crbtree or whoever go up and make a play. Can't tell if he doesn't throw it. That's part of my reasoning on why they do need new wr's. We have a qb that can't throw guys open and anticipate where they are going before the get there. Thus we need wr's that can create more separation giving Smith easier less complicated reads.

You just don't know football...I'm done with you. (better things to do) Best of luck, Joe...
It's the NFL. Receivers are covered tight more often than they are open. You boy Alex needs to turn it up a level.
This is why I am so confused about anyone who wants to degrade the ability of Morgan and Crabtree in terms of tough catches. How the hell does anyone know? These guys haven't even had a chance to make tough catches. They've made tough catches when wide open such as when a ball is too high.
Everyone sees all these other WR's on other teams making acrobatic catches...it's because they get thrown to when they are covered tight and they get thrown jump balls instead of balls that are 2 yards ahead of their 9 route.
