That doesn't mean stepping back, opening himself up to the pass rush and heaving it 60 yards down the field.
Reid is correct: Alex needs to work on this NOW and develop a rapport with his receivers NOW, as opposed to having the game on the line and not knowing where to the put the ball where only his receivers can catch it.
Furthermore, Smith isn't likely to see a better secondary than the unit he faces in practice every day, so now
is the time.
Le sigh...he used to have the arm to do such things but fact is he doesn't, meaning more INTs and also when you stop looking for that safety valve checkdown, you have to read defenses better and faster and I have zero confidence he will, QED he will get sacked more. I'm right and you need to facepalm yourself....infinity^infinity.
