Yeah he is, we are still rebuilding because we can't find perfect players for him...probably never will

Lol.
Is you're talking 2.7 seconds, you're talking about the QB having to go through 3 progressions. That's asking a lot of any quarterback

Your seat on the bandwagon is still fairly warm...

See you at 4:30pm ET on Sunday

I've always rooted for Alex - and am a fan of his improvement. BUT, I must admit, the guy just struggles to look like a good NFL QB. Yes, he is mobile, but he is hesitant making throws or running. He just isn't smooth.

More importantly, no matter what people say, he has a propensity to throw the ball high rather than stick throws in there. Whether he or the coach fear that propensity it doesn't matter, in either case, they keep the throws under 20 yards - even then it can get sketchy.

No matter how much I root for him, unless he has major improvement in this part of his game THIS YEAR, I don't think the team can tolerate that limitation on the game plan longer - CK (or someone else) will get pushed to the forefront.

Have to agree. Staying close is not good enough. There has to be some explosion in order to blow some team out or come from behind when you're two scores down. CK showed us a glimpse of that explosion in preseason. One thing though, Alex is showing improvement.
I blamed Walsh -- sprint right option. It only got him a TD they called 'The Catch'

And there is the irony, one qb throws the ball into the end zone, trusting his player to make a play, the other not to be named qb tosses the ball out of bounds to avoid a negative play.

Oh, OK... Thank you for watching Niners games every Sunday.


I just want to continued the smart a** sarcasm But seriously you are overstating. Example, Vikings game. After the Williams long kick off return, they ran it twice got 6 yards. 3rd and 4 -- Roman called a designed roll out to the right. Kinda like a sprint option right. 2 receivers running to the right and Frank Gore underneath in conjunction with Smith. Both receivers were covered. The Vikings played it well. So Smith decides to run for the first. It's only 4 yards. Frank tried to block for Smith but his guy got by just in time to stop Smith short of the first.

So no... he doesn't throw it out of bound like you said. He makes good qb decisions whether you or I like it or not.

This. I challenge these ppl to point out several plays where for the designed roll out, the first option was covered and then tell me who is open "down field" or in the "end zone." These are just baseless statements. Have some merit to them at least. Aside from a Ginn coming off his route and hauling ass back towards Alex along the sidelines to make a key 3rd down or a few plays by Hunter and Miller, I'm not seeing much of ANYTHING from others ad libbing and providing an actual receiving option. In fact, I'm not a fan of the roll out at all anyhow...it shrinks the field in half and defenses and just flooding that area. I am a fan of this roll out where the design is to throw back to a wide open VD though!
