If Alex makes teams pay everytime they blitz, they will back off.... or he can also run with the ball more often and again make them pay.
that will buy him extra time in the pocket if teams have to be cautious in pressuring the guy. Its not 100% on the Oline...and Alex will tell you that. If teams are getting pressure with only a 4-5 man rush, then yes that is on them...but if they are sending extra defenders, we should make them pay for the majority of the time.
