If Smith returns....HYPOTHETICALLY speaking.....
 
Scenario.....Alex Smith goes down in 2018 with a gruesome leg injury....the Redskins draft a QB in the second round...the rookie QB and McCoy both see playing time in 2019....the rookie QB shows tons of promise and leads the Redskins to a wild card win but throws 3 interceptions in the divisional round the next week in a tough loss on the road..next offseason McCoy retires and the rookie has been named the starter heading into 2020....Alex Smith is ready to return but the Redskins decide since Smith hasn't played in a long time its better to relegate him to be the young QB's backup but still have Smith as a team captain...the Redskins start off 6-2 with the young QB in his second year...but in the 9th game of the season he suffers a dislocated patella in his left knee...although the 2nd year QB is out for 4 games Gruden decides to play Smith the rest of the season....the Redskins win a wild card game for the 2nd year in a row...but once again lose in the divsion round the Redskins offense turn the ball over 8 times in the loss despite the defense getting 3 turnovers....Smith tosses 4 interceptions in the game (2) in the red zone and turns the ball over twice on a sack/fumble....going into 2021 do you give the young QB the starting QB job and make him a team captain and release Smith or trade Smith ? Or do you keep Smith on the team and have a QB competition during the 2021 training camp/preseason between both QBs ?

Man I got to get up to DC and check this weed scene out.

Why a dislocated patella? Spice it up a bit?

Si ma tante en avait, ça serait mon oncle.

If my auntie had some, she would be my uncle.

What happened between now and January that got the Redskins winning a play-off game? I would like to hear the rest of the story. I am admittedly pessimistic, that is my nature. Unless the Skins knock it out of the park on draft day I see a lot of Sundays cussing at the TV set and savoring any Redskin victory as I think they will be rare. Trying to look at the bright side the 4-12 (my prediction) 2019 season will get a nice high draft pick with Gruden and Allen sent to the unemployment office.

In this scenario there had to be a reason Alex gets the starting job back....the young qb has to heal and gets to learn from Smith despite showing promise....and Smith gets to play and help shake off the rust.

Heading into 2019 I think the team built on what it had done for the 1st 9 games in 2018....they draft a QB, WR, edge rusher and start winning games the next season(2019)......I really do stronngly believe this could really happen....in my fictitious scenario should the Redskins part with Smith or keep him after 2020 ?

Looks like you see the first half of 2018 as an indicator of the future and I see the last half as such. I think the 6-3 start last year was built on a house of cards, the Redskins got lots of breaks. Even if Smith doesn't go down that team would not end up continuing that pace and win 10 or 11 games.

You could be right....but we'll never know for mainly 2 reasons....with Smith the Redskins were leading the division for a number of weeks....and without him the QB play was far less than baboon waste....the QB play was extremely inferior including the games McCoy played....I could see the Redskins falling apart and going 6-3 to 9-7
losing very close games with Smith....

Part of it was with the offense being unable to sustain drives with McCoy, Sanchez, & Johnson it caused the defense to stay out on the field for far too long....so the defense was tired a lot the second half of the 2018 season....with Alex the offense was able to sustain drives and the defense was rested and did what it needed to do when they were out on the field.....the entire team collapsed after Alex's leg injury.....at worst I think they could've finished 10-6 with Smith.

Tl;dr.
Smith's done and we are sub mediocre aside from the abysmal qb situation.
