Hard to tell. I don't think Alex would've had the arm strength to get the ball to the receiver fast enough before the Safety knocked his head off.

At the time the receiver came open, there was a defensive lineman (91?) on a direct line between Smith and the receiver. Any attempt to throw the ball to that spot would likely have been batted down the the DL. Once the ball is batted in the air, any option is a bad one, the most obvious being an INT.

You cannot just watch the receiver and say, "he should have thrown it." The QB has to have an open receiver AND a passing lane. Without both there is no reason the attempt the throw. Just throw it away and come back with another play.

Really needs to be seen from a side view

I don't see how a side view would change anything. Conveniently, the circle on the receiver appears just as he separates. At the moment, and for the next 2 or 3 steps, the DL is in the passing window. No chance to complete that throw. None.

See how close the lineman are in actuality to alex
The excuses never stop. I'm just glad he'll be dinking and dunking on another team.
Smith is too cautious, but the first rule of quarterbacking is never throw late across your body toward the middle of the field ... that's exactly the situation in the gif.

Whoa..and all these years I thought the first rule was if the checkdown isn't there, throw it away.

You're both wrong. Everyone, knows you curl up and take the sack.
