    Paloffs is Now: 2007(merged)

    Seriously with our QB I would have left this thread buried for a couple of more weeks at least.
  2. This exactly. Two games now that we would have lost if the other team did the basics. And both games he would have iced them with simple throws that a QB at this level makes routinely. yesterday hitting Davis and the Dallas game hitting Sprinkle in the endzone for a TD. At this level you can't miss receivers that open, especially when you have been in this league for so long and you were once the number one pick overall.

    What is Wrong with Alex Smith?

    Still it boggles the mind that a guy that went number one overall, that has been in this league for 13 years, still way overthrows a wide open VDavis when no one is pressuring him while throwing it. I mean how many thousands of passes has he throwing like this in practice and drills etc. That shows zero confidence to me at least. I can't stand this guy, never could really. He is so frustrating to watch.

    Can we stop pretending now?

    Sorry guys, its like drinking and driving. Shouldn't post on this board without that first sip of strong coffee.

    Wouldn't you cuss up a storm when you have a 24 million plus a year QB than can't hit wide open receivers with pressure on him like when he missed VD? he probably exploded at something else but being a former QB I am sure his frustration with Smith is what triggered it.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Man reading this article and to see Rogers name in it. To think we had a chance to draft Rodgers instead of this alligator hands CB. Major mistake by Gibbs when he was there not to pull the trigger. to this day I wonder if GB didn't pick Rodgers if Gibbs would have switched out of his promise to get JC and got Rodgers, remember he went I believe a spot before we picked JC. Knowing Gibbs he would not break a promise. Anyway, I think for the most part we have had great picks the last two seasons. Getting Payne and Allen where we got them in retrospect we hit the jackpot. Getting THE GREEK in the 5th round was incredible the dude is leading this team with almost 8 sacks. Getting Roullier where we got him is also huge because I feel we found our Center for the next 9 years. I can still see Moses back stage at the draft, getting passed over until we got him with a 3rd round pick. We lucked out with that also. But I can't forgive this front office the travesty they did with Cousins and the desperate move they pulled by getting Smith, while giving up a 3rd and Fuller. The 3rd round pick I get, but to give up Fuller who in my mind was just about to become one of the best slot CBs in the league is nuts. Then Allen pays him more money that would have cost to sign Cousins in the beginning of 2017. All that money for a 35 year old game manager. And if the rumors are to be believed that Allen was pissed when Doug brought AP in then seriously who is running this asylum? The dude needs to go but Synder is too much of an egomaniac and wants his "yes men" to be around him.

    I can't help think how much better we would be if we did the right thing at QB in 2016 and signed our home grown product to a long term contract. I can't help think how much better we would be if Allen was not on this team, or at least he wasn't mixed in the personnel decisions. I can't help think how much better we would be right now with Fuller back there in his CB spot. I can't help how much better we would be if we kept one of the two WRs (DJax or Garcon) instead of going all in on Doctson (even though yesterday he showed he can play in this league). This team has some bright spots by Smith simply puts a cloud over them. People are blaming Gruden at every opportunity but he can't make a cake without eggs. We have plenty of evidence what the offense is capable of with a serviceable QB in the past, and let me you tell you ladies and gents, Smith is not even serviceable right now.

    Redskins Lead NFC East

    Let me start with this. If we don't win the East after the boys beat the Eagles yesterday it will be a travesty and it should be reason to fire some people in this organization. With that in mind, lets understand the opportunity we have here as a team. Yes I agree with many that unless Smith miraculously becomes more accurate on his 20 plus yard throws we will not do anything in the playoffs. But it will be a boost to this team to make it to the playoffs when the start of this season we though we would be probably picking top 10. The defensive front is for real, we just need to get a little better at edge rushing the QB. Love how HaHa is already making an impact that will only get better. We need Dunbar back ASAP because we need to play a little more press. I know that yesterday we were worried about the speed of the TB WRs, thats why the huge cushions. Well one would hope. We can't play like this against the Texans and certainly against the boys because they will nickle and dime us to death. Can't argue much with our record guys, we are 6-3 with a two game lead in this division. Who in their right mind would have though that in the beginning of the season.

    Hey man don't knock the Browns. they have been in almost every game they lost this year, they are young and improving. They got it together against Atlanta as a young, talented team does once in a while. Also they play in Atlanta, where the Falcons can boat race anyone.

    While we are talking can anyone figure out what did that Zebra see on that holding call on Moses? That was a travesty of a call and since now they suppose to be pros I think that dude needs to simply be fired. It could have cost us the game.

    Don't be so sure, the Titans just beat NE and last week we thought they were terrible and had no chance against the boys. Sooooo anything can happen.

    Dude. I hear and feel you. But we are 6-3, better than 3-6. As fans we deserve a little freaking smile on our lips.

    So you are confirming what the rest of us have been saying. We have a scrub for a QB.
