Luck is a ROOKIE! He will make a lot of mistakes. Again...CONTEXT. He is playing very well for a rookie QB. He's had some poor games but has made some great plays. Then when you consider the type of offense he plays in and the responsibility he has without the benefit of a running game, he's playing quite well. There's a reason why he's up for rookie of the year along with RG3 and Wilson.
I'd say he's playing quite well with a crappy team. 2 win team to 9+ wins. When someone brings up his QB rating as to why he's not playing well there's really no point in me continuing the conversation with said person.
36 wins in the 3 seasons prior to going 2-14.
Hmm, wonder what Tebow's winning percentage was.
Context means everything. The eye test is what tells more.
ALEX SMITH FOLKS! NOT TEBOW, NOT SANCHEZ, NOT KAEP.......... ALEX SMITH.
No, I'm replying to a post about wins being used as an argument of being good or not. Now if he would have used other more specific metrics, I just may have agreed with him.
Alex is a damn solid QB. He is a winning QB. He is not a top 10 QB. If he was, then he would be desirable across the league. There's must be more involved AROUND Alex Smith for him to be successful.
He just doesn't make players around him better. Further, he requires the players around him to play near mistake free ball for Alex to succeed.
