Originally posted by OnTheClock:I get the CK fanfare, I really do. He was personally my favorite pick in our entire draft class the year we selected him. I love the player too, but I'm not going to sit here and undercut Alex's abilities and accomplishments based on Colin's talents, like some seem to be doing.
It's OK to say CK is better without trying run Alex into the ground and make it seem like it was some kind of chasm of disparity alike to the difference between Jim Druckenmiller and Steve Young. That's ludicrous.
If you really want to make a believable assessment, do it fairly instead of throwing in Crabtree's playoff numbers to try to slant to statistics. That's BS to compare Alex's first 8 regular season games to CK/Crabtrees 7 final and 3 post-season games, playoff games where you can argue the numbers are inflated because we were trailing virtually all game against the Falcons and Ravens and were forced to throw. If Alex and Colin each played one playoff game in the same year, that'd be a fair comparison, but it didn't happen so since you can't say for sure what Alex would've done, you're down to nothing but pure speculation and conjecture.
Alex was good but the last playoff game he started Crabtree had a stat line of 1 rec 3 yards
