I have heard lots of people criticize BA for lots of things, but our cap has been well managed for the past 8 years. Also, I don't think BA is the direct responsibility on cap matters anyway.

I'm not blaming BA for Smith's injury. That's impossible to predict. But signing a "good" QB who is 35 for a big-dollar, five-year contract doesn't make sense to me. Bruce Allen signed Alex Smith because of all the heat he was taking for letting Kirk Cousins go. They should have let Kirk leave the team at the end of his contract, versus keeping him with one-year contract extensions for two seasons. That wasn't planning for the future.

Alex Smith was an old QB who had decent numbers, but who played for very good teams. The Redskins were a mediocre team. Bruce Allen's QB decisions weren't looking at the long-term but as if the Redskins were one season from being an elite team. There are times the team just has to bite the bullet and actually rebuild. But BA seems to be happy if the team is 7-9 year after year. That's why his record as our "GM" (or whatever you want to call him) is so poor.

Re: If Smith returns....HYPOTHETICALLY speaking.....

Smith seems like he is not ready to give up on NFL career yet.. I don't see how this will work for Smith unless he is willing to back up Haskins or Redskins trade him away.

If Smith wants to push to come back I say good for him and I wish him well. I donít know why some want to kick dirt on him and say he should move on. Thatís his decision to make.

Re: If Smith returns....HYPOTHETICALLY speaking.....

I understand Smith's feelings on this. After am excellent career, who wants to go out that way?

My dad had something similar happen -- after 35+ years in his remarkable career and 2 months from retirement he had a mild heart attack (thankfully, he was OK, and this was 16 years ago now, and he's not had any follow up issues). But he didn't want to leave on that note, and so after being out for about 5 months, he un-retired and went back to work. In fact, he ended up working for another 7 years or so, and added a number of other huge accomplishments to his considerable list of achievements.

Points being that he wanted to retire on his terms, and probably wasn't ready to leave the career he loved when he was set to retire initially in any event.

I bet that Smith is feeling the same way. And I wish him every success as he pursues that goal. He's surely earned the right to do so.

Smith hopes to be back "at some point" . . . if he is healthy in 2020 why not? They will only have 2 QBs under contract. And they will still be paying him.

Re: If Smith returns....HYPOTHETICALLY speaking.....

I am not against Smith coming back, in fact, I probably would want to do same thing if I was him. I am just saying that I don't see how this will work out for Smith and Redskins since we drafted Haskins. Only scenario I can see where Smith returns to Redskins is if he accepts mentor/back-up role.

Re: If Smith returns....HYPOTHETICALLY speaking.....

The Haskins pick mean we have officially moved on...there is no way Alex plays this year. Let Alex continue to heal and help Haskins in the classroom. There is no way Iím hoping for Alex to return as the QB for Skins bc that mean Haskins is failing.
