Yet they still operate the same way...diminishing Haskins trade value by leaks and not making him 2nd qb

This team is still doing the same thing regardless

Yeah i don't get the RR and Haskins situation.. So you say "Dwayne is not done here at all" But you start a 36 YO one legged QB over him next week? LOLOL

Of course Antonio Gibson has been bad in pass pro, where JD McK has excelled. Gibson cost Allen a season most likely. Bad coaching

Re: Around the NFL week 9

3 INTs will lose you most games, but it's not sugar coating things to say he played better than probably anyone was expecting and he did a good job of making it a close game again.

That said I'd rather see Haskins back in there or hell even Montez. Going forward with Alex doesn't make much sense. He's not the future.

Bad teams fall behind early and often and that's where we're at right now.

This. You could tell he was getting more comfortable, moving around in the pocket, on the first 2 min drill drive he was moving down the field comfortably with minimal pressure, then they blitzed and forced him to make a bad throw and Peppers made the play. The pick was terrible, throwing off his back foot, across his body, into the middle of the field. The Giants DC called it right though. And his 3rd pick was even worse.

But I thought the McLaurin td really put some confidence in Smith that he can make those throws, and it got him in trouble at the end of the game. I'm fine rolling with him for next week, don't think it's fair to judge him after 2 years out of the game. If Allen is injured for several weeks at minimum I'm cool rolling with Smith.

Terrible trade and worst contract. I knew it when Bruce did it
Whatever man. You're real good at hindsight, I can see that.

This team was what, 6-3 when he got hurt. No one could have predicted that. It was unfortunate, and the team hasn't figured out the QB position since that injury. That's a fact.

Did they pay him too much, now that you look at what you got out of him? Yes. However, if it had all worked out differently - if he had been able to continue that season and beyond without the injury, who knows.

I'm not sugarcoating anything. The two late INTs were terrible, and I said that. It happens to the best of them... Happen to see the Sunday night game?

Damn Jets! Went to bed thinking the Jets were going to win and maybe we’d have a shot at Lawrence

Re: Around the NFL week 9

Don't get the Alex bashing. We were 6-3, probably 6-4 after that game. We are just dismissing this as no big deal? Compared to our usual shitshow such as this year, that should be celebrated.

The dude suffered the most devastating football injury I've ever seen. That pretty much invalidates trying to make a hindsight decision on the deal.

We were competing and winning games, kind of the whole point. Not trying to win a beauty contest.

And his contract is not crazy by any stretch in the QB market. I'm excited for him for Sunday.

It doesn't appear that Haskins is the future either. We'll see how it goes down the stretch, but my guess is as long as they are in the division race, we won't see Haskins - unless there's another QB injury .

The only way to properly develop and evaluate this young roster is to put in the QB that gives you the best chance to do that, AND gives you the best chance to win. That is Alex Smith at this point.

Also, I know A Smith's contract isn't all that team friendly over the next two years, but I wouldn't write him off just yet.

Re: Around the NFL week 9

For me it wasn't just the interceptions but how they happened, the first one JD fell, ok bad luck (although that only seems to happen to us) the next 2, are like yo what in the hell are you looking at? No one expected us to be good this season but its the way we just shoot ourselves in the foot, leg, hip, and face consistently. We stop them on 4th down, immediately turn the ball over, force a punt, immediately fumble the return, drive down the field before HT, throw a pick. The fact that we have given up the 2nd least amount of points in the 2nd half all season but are 2-6 is some other level shit. Both wins we shut out the team in the second half. It gets annoying. Daniel Jones the most turnover prone QB since Mark Sanchez has 2 games in his career where he hasn't turned the ball over. Both games are in our house, and he is 4-0 against us, twice this year without his best weapon.

Yeah I take back what I said on Haskins playing after seeing the latest from Rivera on him. Disappointing that he's not preparing well enough but it is what it is.

The Alex Smith trade and contract were fucking bullshit and I said it when it happened. So no hindsight partner. He wasn’t good when the team was 6-3. But continue to defend it

I’ve heard the defense of Dan and Bruce qb decisions for years, never understood it
