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

I think it is extremely wishful thinking by Alex, and i wish him the best and hope that he gets back to 100% health and his day to day life gets back to normal. It just seems so hard to imagine a guy coming back from that horrible an injury at his age, he would be what, at least 37 by the time he gets back to 100% health, if he ever gets there.

But he has always taken such good care of his body, perhaps he comes back at 37/38 and gets to play a few more years. As others have said on here, late 30's to 40 isn't really that old for a QB any more these days, but i do think it changes a little bit when you have had the injuries he's had.

Tom Brady could probably put on cruise control and play to at least 45 as long as he suffers no major injuries, maybe even longer. I think Brees could do the same. But they didn't have a gruesome injury like Alex Smith. Still wish him the best though and hope he gets peace with it, in the event that he can't come back.

I think httr stands for hater. Seriously, dude, referring to the man as ďgarbageĒ is just wrong. There arenít two categories of QB - elite and garbage. Smith has had a nice career and had us up two games in the NFCE when hurt. Give the man a little respect.

Unfortunately, the cap hits will be enormous

2019 - 42 million
2020 - 32 million
2021 - 10.8 million

I'm thinking the same way as you...with McCoy, Keenum, and Haskins the QB position became a bit crowded....the only other two ways out of this situation would be if the Redskins either trade Smith or release him.

Trade Smith?! Trust me on this one, no team is going to trade for Smith for several reasons that should be obvious.

Also, how would the QB position become crowded if Smith were to come back? The reality is that McCoy and Keenum are not NFL starter quality players and Haskins is an unproven rookie.

Most likely scenario is to release him next year as a designated June 1 cut

He will not play again, he has to say "I hope to play again" of course he says that eating up millions to rehab, we all knew he wouldn't retire and walk away from that payday.

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

Because the skins took out an insurance policy on Smith, if he is never medically cleared to play again, they get a 12M cap credit.

If Smith wants to keep playing, that's his right to do so, but given his age, the severity of the injury, the fact that the skins have already signed his long-term replacement relegating him to being a backup, and the amount of guaranteed money he still has from the deal... it would seem to be in his long-term physical and financial best interests to simply not play football again.

It does not matter if we think Smith is worth the money - Smith and Redskins agreed to the contract and there is no way for Redskins to back out from the contract unless Smith retires. Therefore, we must account the money for Smith until his contract expires or Smith retires.

I'm not saying that it's all his fault the offense was crap, because in my opinion Jay Gruden below average play calling help contribute to that. All I'm saying is that Check down Alex is a below average qb.

I agree with everything you said. He should never play football again mainly because he's horrible.
The first two statements in bold are in contradiction. And he's not a below average QB -- what matters most is wins, and by that measure, he's well above average. It's simply not possible to credibly contend otherwise.

On your prediction and IQ, you flatter yourself. I seriously doubt you predicted he'd have a grisly, career-threatening injury that would have these cap implications. If you have those kinds of prognosticatory skills, you shouldn't waste them on football. I suspect your uncle would give you the same advice. Perhaps you might consider following it.

Again, horrible is really not a fair characterization. But by all means, double down on your rant.

He didn't start winning until Jim Harbaugh came to San Francisco. After a few years he was replaced. He went to play under Andy Reid who is one of the best coaches in NFL history. He was replaced in KC. If he's such a great qb why does he keep getting replaced? You got qbs like Trent Dilfer who won a Superbowl. Does that make him better than Dan Marino or Philip Rivers? He had a winning record because he played on great teams. As a qb he's below average.
So were we a great team when he had us at 6-2? I can agree he's not a great qb, but he's a damn step better than average.

Pretty sure we would have had a solid shot at the playoffs if he hadn't gone on IR, but that's purely hypothetical at this point.

He isn't great, but he rarely made bonehead plays or put the defense at a disadvantaged starting position. That alone makes him above other QB's that we've had recently
