Re: Offence and Alex Smith

Considering the coaching staff's familiarity with Mark Sanchez and given the limited choices out there, I personally don't think that signing him was all that bad a move.

Let's just hope that Colt McCoy stays healthy and productive so we don't have to go to Marc Sanchez.

Re: Offence and Alex Smith

Per Adam Schefter:

Alex Smith suffered a compound fracture - meaning the bone broke through his skin, per source. Trauma surgeons discovered Smith suffered a spiral fracture in his leg - defined as a long bone broken by a rotational force. Smith, 34, faces a lengthy rehab process to try to return.

I donít know about a 6-8 month recovery period, maybe more like over a year.

The NFL's "meritocracy" spins on. When last we heard of 32-year-old Sanchez, he was being slapped with a four-game PED ban in April. Now he will serve as Colt McCoy's backup in Washington. Sanchez has attempted just 109 passes since the end of the 2014 seasons.


Dan & Bruce again
Awful choice. It is like signing Shawn Lauvao to be our starting guard. Sanchez is terrible.

As much as I canít stand him, I would have called Jay Cutler and asked if he was available.

Luckily spiral fractures have greater surface area and occur at lower force then other types of fractures. Therefore typically heal well. Use ďopen fractureĒ not ďcompound fractureĒ. Iíd prefer a simple tibia fx over an ACL any day.

Re: Offence and Alex Smith

Guy will be 35, looked shaky this year and will be coming off a major leg injury.

Better have a sound plan b going into the offseason and you better execute it.

Letís not treat this like we treated left guard going into this season

Most coaches want to go with guys they know. Sorry but this is not Dan or Bruce making this call.
His name jumped out at me as soon as I saw it. Not a bad move. The familiarity with the staff and the player can be beneficial.

Re: Offence and Alex Smith

At this point there are no good options.

This is after the trade deadline.

They were picking through the best of the worst.

Re: Offence and Alex Smith

So smith DID have a compound fracture. And a spiral fracture that runs at least part of the length of the bone. Horrific injury.

How is it possible that this happened to two of our QBs, and I donít recall this happening to any others in the intervening 33 years. Jesus.

We are past the trade deadline, unless there is a qb tucked away on a practice squad you weren't finding a superstar or even a mediocre guy. Sanchez does have playoff experience. I dont like it but you had to sign someone who could possibly step in if McCoy goes down Thursday.
