Seriously I don't even understand why this is a discussion. We have an immobile 37 year old qb, any half decent team understands that's not an ideal position for the short or long term. Only way we don't draft a qb is if the guy Ron wants isn't available.
I do agree with that, and it's entirely possible his guy isn't there when they pick, or that he isn't even in a first round target.

Smith's mobility doesn't bother me though - he's still more mobile than a lot of QBs in the league.

What I don't understand is the talk about bringing in a Veteran QB. Why would you release Smith and start over with another Veteran, who will command a decent salary himself, and who will have to get acquainted with the offense / staff, etc., when you have Alex Smith already under contract.

Yeah lol. When i look at every team in the division and the rest of their games I see 5 wins at best for any of them. Could have something to do with a 2-18-1 record outside the division. One win was a squeaker by Dallas over Atlanta (who sucks) with Dak. I mean let’s face it, the division can only beat itself and that is 6 wins tops but nobody has a perfect division record so far.

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

NFL Networks' Ian Rapoport said Washington head coach Ron Rivera wants Alex Smith back as the team's quarterback in 2021.

How about no

I'm fine with it if we aren't able to draft a rookie QB that will be ready to play immediately. Ideally we would move on from Smith but there are multiple teams that will look for new QBs so our options might be limited.

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

Yeah, I'm fine with that too. If he finishes the season strong and healthy, and he wants to keep playing, why not bring him back? A Smith is more than capable of running this offense for another year if healthy.

That doesn't mean that if things break your way in the draft, that you don't draft his replacement. They should absolutely be looking at drafting a QB next year. However, they might not like the options at their pick - at least not someone to come in and start right away.

How about no
He wants him back to groom our future QB like KC did with Mahomes

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

Why don’t we stop guessing and see what happens. It’s nice to surmise about the thought process of coaches. It’s obvious that Alex can still play at a high level.

My question to you is how can you make that assessment when Alex is 8-5 as Washington’s starter and everyone else is 6-21? How shortsighted of you.

I’m done with second guessing Smith. The guy is just a winner.

I’m enjoying the ride right now! Very thankful Gibson lead us to victory yesterday

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

How much does Smith cost us next season as a player compared to cutting him? Can't help wondering if on balance keeping him another season is really that expensive considering the vet leadership he brings. Kicking him to the kerb this offseason then bringing in another vet doesn't make sense to me if he can go one more year (or 2?). I know Rivera's said he wants to keep him anyway and I'd be surprised if he wants to retire now, so just hypothesising.

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

I don't know how reliable it is, but according to Spotrac, he costs 24.4 mil next year. If they cut him after June 1st, he would cost 5.4 mil against the cap in 2021 and 2022.

Barring injury, Haskins shocking the world and beating him out (if he's still here), or a rookie beating him out, my guess is A Smith will be the starter next year.

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

I'm fine with Smith coming back as the starter next year, but beyond that no. In the 1% chance Ron is encouraged by Haskins' attitude (and isn't just giving him lip service so we can drive his price up for the offseason) maybe another year of tutelage under Smith would help, if not I expect Ron to grab someone to develop under Smith for next year. Kyle Allen is a nice kid but I haven't seen anything that makes me think he's our long term future.

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

I like winning. When Alex plays, we win more than we lose. Let's bring him back in 2021, and build the rest of the team.

We add 2 more guys on D, and the group is elite.

This. We were 6-2 with Gruden coaching and ASmith as qb. I think this coaching staff will get even more creative as they get comfortable, although I hated the buttarooski.
