Where did Alex come up in my comment? What I am saying is that the margin between the good and the great qbs is a lot smaller than people make out here. The biggest difference that I see between Alex and Joe is that Joe could look bad an entire game and then in the 3rd or 4th qtr forget how bad he had been and play lights out.
Nothing wrong with comparing Alex to Joe, imo. In fact, I'd argue that Joe is the golden standard by which qbs should be measured. I'm just saying the margin between a good qb and a great qb is a fine line. People act like it is a world of difference. It's not...it's a game of inches.
Right now Alex doesn't stack up too badly. Need to see him keep performing at this level...that's the real test. But no question that if the game is on the line, which qb I chose.
