Blaming Roman for us losing to the Giants the last two times is SUCH a cop out to excuse poor QB play. Actually let me rephrase, its a cop out to excuse less than good QB play. Alex didnt play terrible in the NFCCG, but he certainly didnt play good either. This years game pretty much speaks for itself. Alex played a terrible game.
Anyways, its a complete cop out. When you look at the win against the Giants in the regular season last year, Alex Smith is nonstop praised by the pro-Alex group. We didnt have a running game, and Alex "carried the team to victory" (according to said group).
When the next two times we play them and we ask Alex to carry our team a similar way and he fails, that same group then blasts Roman for not running the ball more. Doesnt make much sense does it?
