Not really am I lying about turnovers when we are down 7 already? Is that a what if? 7 points in the first half? Can I ask something without getting jumped. Would you be satisfied with Alex if he only had 7 points at the half? I don't feel I'm being too over the top here. Again I'm not saying Kaep. played bad, but I think I am looking at this objectively.
True or false-Those were really poor plays? The interception, and the near interception? Am I wrong on that? What about the delay's of games? I can't be critical of that? Yeah, we had some excellent drives, but that shouldn't overlook certain mistakes that "could" be rather crucial later on down the road. That is a what if, but is this not a proper concern? You're not going to get away with these plays, playing playoff caliber teams. No matter whom the QB is.
No, that's not it at all. If Smith played in a game when our run-game was stuffed from the first few series and THEN Smith still overcame by making impressive throws, then Smith would not get bashed.
Stats aren't everything. Some (not you) can roll there eyes at the term "eye test" but it's just that. When watching Smith, in most of his games, he doesn't stand out or doesn't overcome difficult circumstances which is what most refer to as "not making the players around him better".
On the other hand, Colin created some plays and then allowed his targets to get into positions to make plays and giving them that extra split second to do what they need to do in order to get the ball to them. Alex does not give that extra bit of time. He moves onto another read or checkdown or takes the sack. This is where the "eye test" shows you "robotic".
Stats tell the outcome but they don't show how they played. How they played is the "eye test". Most who think Alex should still start still agreed that Colin looks much better. They are mainly worried about personalities or sample size.
