    A New Beginning - Embrace The Noodle

    I'm guessing we'll probably sign someone this evening. I don't think they are going to sit on this.
  2. I heard Theisman discussing the injury this morning on SiriusXM, and he threw out a few more crazy coincidences. - Both sack injuries happened at the 40. - His LT, Jacoby was out with injury that game as Trent was in this game. - Both were right leg injuries, involving complete breaks of both the fibula and tibula - He has a nephew named Alex Smith who is 33 years old. - The final scores of the games were the exact same, except the Redskins won in 85. He also said that he doesn't know if Alex will be able to come back because we haven't heard the full extent of the injury yet. He is hoping he will be able to, but that we'll have to wait and see.
  3. I wouldn't say that quite yet. A guy a few hours after surgery is in no state of mind never mind taken the time to contemplate what is going on and what to expect. Plus, I don't buy it any way. He has a lot of rehabbing to do. This wasn't a typical break, so it is very doubtful he'll be ready this time next year, never mind in time to start the season. On top of that, I don't think he uses Twitter. EDIT - I should have read below this post. I see I had good reason to not buy it.

    Stop acting like he was benched for a political movement. He was benched well before that because he isn't good. He played the college RO offense well, but then the league caught up and shut that down. The one trick pony was done at that point. He was benched for Gabbert for the love of Pete.

  6. Then you don't want Kap. He is not a good QB.
  7. The ball never hit the ground. It wasn't caught by the receiver, and therefore not a fumble, but it didn't hit the ground before be possessed by the defender. The correct call would have been an interception.

    I think it's because he isn't good along with the distractions his signing would undoubtedly bring. Plus, since he is in the middle of a lawsuit against the NFL, I'm not sure how smart it would be for him or the league if the Redskins brought him in.

    I have to agree, though, to be honest, that's still not saying much about Sanchez's NFL IQ.
  10. I didn't say he would restructure. I am saying that he and the team might come to an injury settlement. He may have just played his last snap in the league, and, really, if he isn't able to play again, the choice may be out of his hands. I don't know how his contract is structured around injuries, but that could play a part in this as well. As far as the slim pickings, unfortunately I think that's all we have this time of year.
  11. If he isn't going to play another down of football and the team knows it and he knows it, and he's this great guy that everyone keeps saying, why would he take advantage of the team when he could reach a settlement? Plus, again, I'm not sure of his specific contract, but I do know that many contracts have injury clauses in them, and if the team knows there is a high chance he can't play again, they may exercise that clause. I don't know all the ins and outs of how the NFL handles injuries with contracts, as I stated earlier, but there have been cases where the team has been able to release the injured player with an injury payment. There are a lot of things that could happen, and I'm not pretending to know them all. But, whether he retires or not, there is a chance that today was his last time taking a snap in the NFL.
  12. As i said earlier, if he knows he isn't going to play and is as good of a guy as people say, why wouldn't he reach an injury settlement with the team. That would also allow him to go in the booth or do something else that he is interested in doing.
  13. I am not, but I actually watched the game with a good friend who is, and specializes in sports injuries. She said immediately after the replay of the sac that it was a broken Fibula, probably Tibula as was, and she wouldn't be surprised if there was torn ligaments as well. She said, at his age, it was going to be a long, painful recovery that may be career ending, especially for a guy who uses his legs so much as part of his game. This was all before he had even left the field. So, far, she has been exactly right with what we've been told. Add to that what others on this board have said that have had personal experience with such injuries, and it's hard for me to believe he isn't going to seriously consider retirement.
  14. He and the team could reach an injury settlement. I'm not going to pretend to know all the ins and outs of contract structures when it comes to injuries, but if the team knows he won't play again and Alex is as good of a guy as people say, then I could see them reaching a settlement very quickly that would be beneficial to both parties.
