Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

Recommended Posts

First year I’m Going into a season with low hopes I’ve projected this team a 10 win team more years then not but this year I think we will be a five year team....since they prove my prediction wrong every year maybe this is the year they get to or break 10...

Pretty sure you'd get behind him, knife in hand, wearing a nice purple Cousins jersey :rofl89:

 

No, I have two teams now and I can root for them both and enjoy the season more.  The Skins are like the wife i’ve had  for decades and still care about despite the fact her stupidity drives me nuts at times.  Despite all her annoying habits I still care.

 

The Vikings are the smoking hot sweetie on the side that is going thrill and delight me.  So I am going to be two timing, grabbing all the enjoyment I can!  I’m going to have my cake and eat it too!

I can see that.

 

Plus I don't think you'll be in any danger of a potential playoff matchup to create any conflict.

Probably not but we can hope.  The Skins could find a way to get a wildcard with better health, Alex produces like Kirk, and the running game improves and maybe they can make that happen.  Maybe they have a punchers chance.

Who would you root for?

This thread is sad.

 

Kudos to OP. He repeatedly said he’d be out when Cousins was, yet here he is, sticking with his team and cheering on the new guy.

 

Wish the same could be said for the rest of the people in this thread. 

 

Looking forward to seeing what Smith can do.

I’ll have to see I’m in uncharted waters.  I’ll figure it out if it happens.

My thoughts exactly!  We had thoughts and attitudes about his predecessor and about the trade, it’s time to let those thoughts go and embrace our new champion and get some enjoyment out of the FA and draft.  

 

You still here old man??? I thought you were behind Kirk and moving with him to Minnesota? ;)

You might as well stick with the 'Skins all the way and wear this misery like a badge of honor. Besides, even if Minnesota wins the Super Bowl, you'll never feel all the way good celebrating, like cheering at your step-son's Harvard graduation while knowing your estranged firstborn is still attending NA meetings.

Hi Hi Hi!  Better win or else you will be watching your back.  In Redskinsland, the backup QB always get more love.

Welcome to the Redskins Mr. Smith!

 

As crazy as the QB contracts have been this Free Agency I feel like we got a bargain...

I support him 100% until he throws a 2 yard pass on 3rd and 10. 

 

:)

 

At least it will be a 2 yard pass to a Redskins WR rather than to the opposition CB. Will make a nice change of pace.

Until they show repeated replays on him passing on throwing it open receivers downfield to check down to Thompson on 3rd n long.

While I don't like the trade, primarily because we gave up a talented young CB in Kendall Fuller, I am welcoming Alex Smith and rooting for him.  Seems like a good guy who has worked hard to get his career to a good place.

Honestly, "If healthy" has been kicking our ass for years now. I'm over Reed, and as much as I love the little Seminole, he's had do many brutal injuries I'm not sure what's left. Gruden basically had him under what amounts to football quarantine for 3 seasons, and when he finally decided to put the team on his shoulders, he bit the big one again. Just seems like we have a ton of question marks surrounding Smith right now.

I'm torn.  I don't think we have enough talent, anyway, but last just felt like a giant freak accident for an injuries standpoint, even guys we kinda expected injuries from.  I feel the same way as you do about CT, we finally break glass in case of emergency, and he breaks, too.

 

In regards to Alex, we're making a mistake if we don't make sure he has at least the same level of talent as he had in KC and expecting the same or better results.  He'll go down the similar reasons Kirk did because of asking him to save us without a running game, like he's Brees or Rodgers.

 

We need Le'Veon Bell.
