  1. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    There is nothing surreptitious about believing that we've downgraded at the quarterback position and that the success of our offense this year will rely largely on how effective our run game is.
  2. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Another quote from that same article is totally getting ignored: "A narrative developed that maybe the Redskins didn't support me as much as they could have, but I think I'm here because I was given an opportunity with the Redskins and I was well-supported," he says. "They compensated me more than I ever thought I would be compensated. I owe a great deal to them. I look back on those six years with a lot of joy, a lot of gratitude and think that we'll always view our time with the Redskins as very positive, especially when we think about where it led us in life, to a place that even on my best days I never thought was really possible."

    Why is it for some, "let's all get behind Alex Smith" means let's all get behind Alex Smith by tearing Cousins down? You can prop one up without wrecking the other.

    Agreed. More interested to see how well the Chiefs are with Mahomes now.
  5. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    The easiest question to answer this is to ask if people think that under identical circumstances last year, are we winning more, less, or the same 7 wins? I think it would have been worse with Alex Smith last year.

    Cousins did start in Gruden's first year. And had they actually stuck with him instead of going to noodle arm McCoy, he was on pace to surpass 4,000 yards and 30 TDs (although the INTs would've been high).
  7. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Dalton averaged 3787 yards, 27 TDs, 16 INTs, and a 60% completion over the course of 3 years with Gruden's system. The only thing equal with Cousins is TDs.
  8. Low risk, potential high reward. Nothing wrong with this pick, IMO.
  9. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Wish I could like this post more than once. We have national pundits (as well as our head coach) who have said that this offense has upgraded significantly with the addition of Alex Smith. And this is not factoring in Guice or an improved defense. Just Smith. And how Reid and Gruden run a very similar system, which should help Alex transition well. But when you look at the actual stats, it couldn't be further from the truth.
  10. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    This is what worries me. If Smith plays like he has in KC, based off of the averages of both QBs in terms of TDs (last 3 seasons), we are losing 9 total touchdowns from the position. Now granted, Guice + better could make that up, but it's still a concern. And we are also looking to decrease the turnovers (on average) to about 7 less than years with Kirk. The caveat is that Smith put up these numbers with 75 less attempts than Cousins. So the TDs could increase just as much as the turnovers. Who knows?

    I think DeFilippo and Cousins will be a good match along the same lines that he and McVay were. I think McVay had a stronger impact on Cousins than Gruden did. I think his overall yardage might be down because of Cook, but that would mean his turnovers would also be down.
  12. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    If he plays on the same level he played in KC: 3500-3700 yards, 65% completion, 20 TDs and 7 INTs. Close to 40 sacks. 5 fumbles, 2 lost. He'll rush for about 350-400 yards, and get 2 rushing touchdowns. These are his career averages over the past 5 years. Will anyone really care if we go 6-10 that Alex Smith bought a house in DC and attended a Wizards game?
  13. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    They literally had this topic discussed on 980 today. Sheehan has referenced it. Callers call in and talk about it. They've had a segment on 2 different shows about what was more likely: Guice to have 1,000 rushing yards or Smith to surpass 4,000 passing and every caller I heard said Smith. -It's not a "negative" or "hating" to think he will not put up comparable numbers. -This is true, I've yet to see anyone say otherwise. Although the caveat is that a reduction in the turnovers also takes into account the fact that he's not willing to throw the ball as much which is evident in his less total touchdowns than Kirk for the prior 3 seasons. -He's also 34 years old, which should give people some pause considering he's here for at least 3 years. -I agree.

    No one compared him to Osweiler. I'm saying that the same level of positivity and excitement wouldn't be the same had we signed a QB like Osweiler. Meaning we shouldn't always be on board 100% behind players who suck, just because they are on the roster. We absolutely can be excited about the team. We usually are every year. I don't think over hyping a player based off of an outlier season is the best way to go about that, but to each their own.
  15. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    In addition to the Kirk/Alex thing and how it'll play out, I'm also curious as to how KC is going to do with Mahomes, and what his stat line is going to look like at the end of the year. It's kind of odd that Kirk was never afforded the same luxury by a decent portion of our fan base. And guess what? That's okay. I don't want to have blind loyalty to a player just because they are on my favorite team. If they signed Brock Osweiler, should everyone be okay with that and get excited? No one is "not behind" Alex Smith. Everyone wants to win. The hang up is whether or not you think Smith is going to make that much of a difference (negative or positive).
