However, keep in mind that he was also playing with third stringers. Some of them not even as good as the ones that people here have commented on when they talked about how Alex had no receivers to throw to. His best receiver was Williams. His other main receiver did not even make the practice squad. Though he did have Edwards for a few plays
How many of the mistakes were his and how many were the receiver not finishing the route or running the wrong route? Go back and look at the film from then. He had one interception where he threw it short that was clearly his. He had one where Edwards cut off the route to avoid contact that got intercepted. He had one that was in Johnson's hands that the DB took away from him, etc.
Alex, who was playing with the first string offense, with people whom he had played with before, did not exactly look stellar during that same time frame.
