Good point, but I think folks would be happy if we just tried and completed a FEW downfield passes per game.
All of those teams have spent dearly for their QBs so it isn't much of a surprise if the QB tries to do too much in the way of winning to compensate for other things their teams can't do well simply because they haven't made the necessary investment to do so
Yep, I see Smith as a damn good discount at 9 mil... Alex said himself that his terrible numbers of the distant past are a clear result of (terrible team/coaching) trying to force things because we would get so far behind ( in score +/or down/distance ). Of course, he was careful to phrase it to where he didn't throw those coaches/team under the bus.
Now, he trusts his team to come through, while he plays smart, yet careful.
