Who knows how Smith will do, but nothing in his history would imply he will set himself above the franchise or be a drama queen. Skins fans are justifiably jaded about QBs and after 20+ years it would be nice to have a FO, staff and players all in agreement and moving forward. I think we now have that, and we will see good things, but if Smith leaves in 4 years and we have been stuck at 500 with another coaching change then yeah Smith may get the same level of frustration at his departure.


We let a QB price himself out of what we thought he was worth by poor front office decisions. What makes you think this front office will do better over the next 20 years?

these ass clowns haven't been able to field a consistant winning team in 20 years. And the common denominator in the equation are the same ass clowns you think will turn this team around. I am hopeful, but trying to remain realistic at the same time.

The FO has gone through progressions. We aren't in a Cerrato Zorn period, or a Shanahan Allen one either. They have been watchful of the free agents, but not gone crazy for 1st day overpays. I don't agree with every move, but we have made good moves the past 2 to 3 years and now that we have a stable QB cap solution I expect they will solidify the other positions appropriately.

Calling the FO assclowns pretty much contradicts your last line.

Re: ALEX SMITH and moving forward.

Bill Polian just said Alex Smith would have gotten more money than any QB ever if he'd hit the open market this year. Agree?

I don't think so. I mean anything is possible, but even Cousins didn't get what the "experts" felt he would get, which was $30 million a year. Cousins and Smith are very similar.

Next year, in 2019, his new extension will kick in.

Thanks. I thought it looked incomplete.

Re: ALEX SMITH and moving forward.

I'm guessing Smith won't take a knee on the two yard line with seconds left in the half and no time outs. Loved Kirk, but Alex Smith strikes me as a winner.

I had totally forgotten about that!

Kirk is a really good qb and I wish we would have signed him way back when.

There was frustration from Jay with Kirk not slinging it down field like Rex used to.

I do really wonder how many brain farts like the kneel down happened within the offense that fans would never pick up on.
