Alex Smith to miss 2019 Season

Per Multiple sources.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...gn=Twitter_atn

No surprise here, that was a gruesome injury. I wonder why he just doesn't hang it up? In 2020 he'll be what? 37?

He would be 36 years old when the season starts in 2020. We don't really know where he is at mentally right now, for all we know he may know that his injury is career ending and it hasn't been announced yet.

If that isn't known yet, then having an athlete's mentality he is most likely hoping that he makes it all the way back in 2020 and is able to play again, whether it is here, or somewhere else. The coming months should tell us plenty. I wonder truly how committed the skins are to Alex, and will they be willing to wait a whole year and just use a stop gap QB to keep the seat warm until Alex can come back, or if at some point this year they make the decision to move on, draft a QB of the future while they get the Alex situation sorted.

As far as Alex Smith goes, if he can pass a physical, i'm sure there will be a handful of teams interested in him as a backup / spot starter / stop gap QB. He will be 37 in 2021, not freakishly old for a QB these days when you see guys like Brees and Brady still slinging it in their 40's.

We will draft someone in the 1st or 2nd. With that investment in a high pick, and if he plays well, Alex will never play here again EVEN if he does make it back.

Re: Alex Smith to miss 2019 Season

I am sure this was talked about, buried in some thread somewhere, but I do not want to go looking for it. What is the cap implications if Smith retires say at the most opportune time for the Redskins, say after 6/1/2019 or what is the best case scenario? Has this been talked about?

Re: Alex Smith to miss 2019 Season

Terrible for Smith. Tough way to end a decent career. As a Skins fan I am only concerned with how the money end shakes out. Hopefully we do not end up even more screwed as a franchise because of it. Football wise He was not the answer.

Agreed. Smith wasn’t playing well at all, and the offense was badly held back by his play. Gruden needs a QB who can run the offense at a high level, and the ability to use the entire playbook.

Another Bruce Allen blunder, and Bruce Allen contract agreement.

The offense did NOT operate anywhere near the tempo and level that Cousins ran it. It was stagnant. Simple

In the brief time McCoy played we saw a much better passing game, touch downs, etc.

Re: Alex Smith to miss 2019 Season

No it didn't but I'm just saying Alex was way better than CM or JJ obviously

Re: Alex Smith to miss 2019 Season

Might as well add retire, he’s not coming back.

Re: Alex Smith to miss 2019 Season

Fitzmagic 2019!!!

He is a fairly realistic option cap wise.

We could tank in style.

It would instantaneously fix our problems at receiver.

With Fitzmagic, like Rex, EVERYBODY is open!

Re: Alex Smith to miss 2019 Season

Not surprised at all. He wasn't really playing well at all anyway. Just hope the guy can resume a normal life again. Seems like a real good guy. He just wasn't a good QB for us.

So now I assume Colt will compete w/ a rookie.

Agreed! I honestly don't think that Alex Smith will be coming back.

I agree! The Offense did seem to move more smoothly with Colt McCoy at the helm.

My personal opinion is that due Salery Cap reasons and insurance reasons Alex Smith will sit out the 2019 Season and then wait to retire just before the start of the 2020 Season.

Either way, the Redskins organization will be taking a Cap Hit

But if I understand what was said in another thread a few months ago, it will be a bit less of a Cap Hit in 2020 instead of Alex Smith retiring in 2019. If I am incorrect in any way, please, anyone chime in and please explain.
