Lets just have some perspective.
PM is on a new team with new players and took a year off because of a severe injury. So that comparison doesnt work.
Only reason he has a decent rating is because he constantly checks the ball down. He passed 204 yards on 34 attempts and that 5.82 yards per attempt which is not good, so that qb rating really doesn't mean much. the fact is he only led the offense to 10 points and thats even with Franky averaging over 6 yards per carry. The first two games was against awful defenses, just look at what 2nd year player Jake Locker did to the Lions 29/42 378 yards 2tds....numbers alex hasn't even come close to.
Do you feel the same way I do?
That our opponent only needs to play disciplined Defense and not fall for our setup play action plays and Alex will look like this MIN more often than he will look like Ponder?
I think MIN, BAL, and NYG came up with a blueprint to not let us overpower them and that's to not give wide open looks to Alex due to defensive break downs.
