What did Buffalo give up for him being it was an intra division trade. Musta been a bunch. I kinda remember.

Edit it was a 1st.
Brady was hurt in the AFC championship game that year and Drew stepped in and helped finish the game.

You'e right I read the same when I looked it up he did play in the AFCC and they won. I like the part of the story that they remained friends and Bledsoe was all class about the situation

A career average of 4.1 yards per carry off of dancing around and running into linemen. Sounds as ludicrous as an 8 yard per pass average off of only check downs. But at least your consistent.

How many passes has Smith thrown past 15 yards? Not including YACs which have dramatically increase that per average.

I've watched every SF game the last 2 years. It would be wise to do the same before making these statements. What better way to see if your logic is right than to post it on SF fan forums? I guarantee it would get shot down. Smith simply cannot make the downfield throws and that SF fanbase knows it.

A QB throws a screen and they run it 80 yards. How's his yards per going to look?

Last year Alex averaged 2.8 pass attempts per game of 20 or more yards. Hardly throwing downfield.

This year started out no different. Watching the first 3 games, he had 92 pass attempts. Only 4 of them traveled more than 20 yards. It's simply not true that he throws downfield.
