Yes. I think most people are happy if you are complimentary of someone's appearance as long as you're simultaneously respectful of the boundaries of the relationship and her as a human being as opposed to an object. If that makes sense.

If I were an owner I'd never sign another CBA that allows cap hits for guys who are physically unable to perform again.
We are not really "crippled" (also what a poor choice of words given AS' injury) with our salary cap seeing as we now have the 2nd highest amount available. And if the salary cap allowed exceptions for injured players than you would basically create a huge loophole for teams to exploit. We suffered a bigger, and more unfair, salary cap penalty at the start of the last CBA and ultimately it had little bearing on the success or failure of the Skins.

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

Smith is a beast, not sure how I would have handled something like that, probably not anywhere nearly as well as he did. Just the fact he can walk and run and live a normal life is truly amazing. Hats off to his medical team as well.

Keep him!
Smith grew up in La Mesa and went to high school between University Ave and 94. You know he's not staying in the miserable weather of DC... lol.

He should do TV. He'd be great at it.

Smith already won in my book. Doesn’t matter if he plays or not.

I used to work at BJ's Restaurant in La Mesa in my younger days. Got to bus his table one time. I guess you could say we're great friends lol.

I walked on 1 year at SDSU. We played Utah at home that year. That was pretty cool. Got to see the future 1st overall pick up close and personal. He was good. That team was good.

Agreed. He’s got to think of his future life and how that could be adversely damaged if he is injured again.

I’m interested in whether he wants to return as any of the following:

A. NFL TV Commentator

B. NFL Coach (position coach or higher)

C. NFL Team Executive

A. Being a tv commentator takes a lot of time and effort. Many don’t make it over time.

B. He’d have to start as a position coach (QB coach like Zorn did) and then hopefully move up the ladder to OC or higher IF he is successful.

C. I think his time last season being an informal advisor to Dan Snyder might get him a shot at being a team executive- perhaps in the Redskins organization (?). I believe Smith helped cut Dan Snyder’s dependency on Bruce Allen last season. But it appears that Kyle Smith is well on the road to being the Redskin’s new GM. What would Alex’s executive job be with Rivera / Kyle Smith making all of the Redskin’s major football decisions.

I think Alex Smith will quietly retire and in a year or two he’ll come back to the NFL in on of the capacities listed above.

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

A Don't really see him as the personality to do that, at least not long term. More likely a motivational speaker than sat in the booth if he goes into media?
B Got mentoring skills but can he actually coach up kids to a better level, and beyond that, manage an entire offense then maybe a team? I back this as most likely horse and hope he succeeds.
C Does he have the business know how to carry this role? Can he evaluate talent if he goes the scouting/personnel route? I wouldn't bet against him...

I'm rooting for him to win a backup job with us, but I really think his value is mentoring Haskins. I hope he does get an executive or coaching job for us but him sticking around even if not, is likely a huge benefit to Dwayne.

Re: Alex Smith’s Amazing Comeback(?)

A year of being a great guy in the locker room and than the Front Office. He is the type of guy you want around your organization on and off the field.
