I agree. While I agree with an article to an extent, I think we need to take it a step further.
CK needs to play like Alex only to the extent of not making mistakes that help our opponent beat us, managing the game, playing good situational football, and taking what the defense gives. Not making mistake is not limited to turnovers -- it can also include bad time management, taking huge losses running backwards trying to do to much/not throwing the ball away, or missing wide open receivers for plays.
If the deep pass isn't there, don't force the ball into double and triple coverage like he has the tendency to do for much of the season.
If the defense has clamped down on us early, Kaep needs to bide his time, be patient and eventually, that play will open up and it will be like heaven just opened up with angels singing -- and THAT will be his moment -- he can let it fly and we can start to run away with it. Once they start to respect us deep, the running lanes for him will open up too.
Kaep plays a clean game, and uses his freakish ability to make plays in the chances provided? We win this thing.
