I cant wait to hear the numerous threads about how much better the oline is playing with Kaep when in reality they are playing at the same level.
This is the most subtle and nearly impossible trait to describe with words. Some players just have the ability, and this ability gives them more time in the pocket.
Ah yes, here we turn back to the eye test or the feeling test once again.
Yes, Kap just has that it thing that made the oline hold blocks just a bit longer or whatever.
Can't be the oline had a fantastic game in and of themselfs. Has to be the qb?
ITs gotten a little nuts with some assigning such things to our qb's. Sometimes the oline plays great and gives our qb's lots of time and in everyone of those cases out qb's had great games.
In games that our oline struggled, it puts more pressure on out qb and in some of those cases Alex struggled. Seems pretty simple.
Just look at the Bears game on both sides of the ball for Pete sakes? Or does that take to much? You really think Kap would have had a great game with that oline? Really? He just has that hard to describe it thing that would have made the difference? Give me a break!
