thats just the last year and half. even in both 2009 and 2010 while battling injuries and Singletary benching him for Troy Smith, Alex was a top15 QB in the league. He has plenty of success before JH, its not his fault that the team as whole underperformed
the first 2/3rds of his career were marred by injuries and more dumb coaching buts its clear that since 2009 Alex has turned a corner and everyone on this forum is too jaded to see it.
I agree with you 100%. I too have made the same claim, but it doesn't matter what we say, someone will have counter stats. Stats that are IMO, bias and moot at best. To the closed minded folk, its a QB driven league, so to them everything is Alex's fault, instead of it being a team thing. Finally we get good coaching, Alex shows a lot of improvment but to the critics its not enough, they wanted to see 4000+ yards with 30+ tds and only 5 ints, otherwise he under acheived AGAIN, this is why normally I stay out of the Alex debates, no matter what Alex does It wont be good enough.
