The 3 Smith brothers have been taken, so I'm going w/ la Michael and most receptions, most 3rd down conversions, most YAC, most RZ completions, and will be the one thing alex never had...the one guy who is always open, the go to bailout guy, on pitch, pass, and then turn him loose on the D. Anyone who has not seen this kid in person, TV or tape, is in for a monster surprise...and that is exactly why Coach took him, as a situational pick at #2. This from a team that needed 19 starters just 3 yrs ago. Unbelievable. Just unbelievable.
So, you mean Captain Checkdown will have a weapon that turns that "checkdown" into an 57 yard TD
I'll buy that for a dollar
The 49ers of yore used to have that - it was called YAC -- Joe throwing 2 4 yard slants to #82 that become 2 90 plus yard TDs on MNF. Granted, those weren't "checkdowns"
If you want to see a mastery of checkdowns, check out this drive
-- 2 TDs, 3INTs????? wTF -- 257 yards/???
Man, if Walsh could have molded Alex from the beginning
Not saying that Alex is in Joe's league but he had 5 come from behind wins last year, plus the NO game. The SEA game, the DEN game in prior seasons, Alex has shown a propensity to be CLUTCH (to use coach's term)
I think Alex deserves a clean slate going into next year. Forget his draft position and all that stuff. Judge him for what he does this year.
Going into next year, for me, its Alex
LEAVE YOUR BAGGAGE AT THE DOOR
