Alex is going to have to have some bigger games in the years to come then. As in, games he takes over and just dominates from start to finish, even when every other thing isn't working out perfectly. He had that game against the Saints, but he wasn't good in all four quarters. He was good when it mattered, great. But that game should have been a blowout looking back. The offense just sputtered until the final minutes. And a lot of folks probably see that game as a fluke still as far as Alex is concerned. It wasn't a good defense, Greg Williams is terrible, etc.
