    Pathetic crowds at home opener

    People like to say "Dan is a fan". If he were really a fan of the team he would sell it. He's smart enough to know that he isn't good at producing a winning organization. A real fan would sell to someone who could restore the franchise. This guy is not a fan of anything but him self.

    Starting QB 2019???

    He would rightly want starter money. I can't see that happening, considering Alex's cap number. That's the pickle we find our selves in.

    Alex Smith Actual Status

    Only way this works out for us is if Alex restructures his deal then retires. Doubtful.

    And yet, Bruce still made the deal. He placed a bet that hinged on a 34 year old player not getting hurt. He gambled, and he lost. Fair enough. But he should not retain his job.

    So where do we go from here (QB wise) this year and next?

    Is it true that even if Smith retires, we take a cap hit in 2019? I think the answer is yes but have heard conflicting things. If that is the case, there is nothing to discuss. It will be Alex or someone super cheap like Sanchez.

    We are between a rock and a hard place due to Smith's contract coupled with the uncertainty of his future. I am not a capologist but my guess is that we can't afford to sign an expensive free agent quarterback without knowing for sure the details of Alex's future. That being the case, we are left with two options. 1) draft someone who's draft position comes with a salary we can afford along with Alex, and / or 2) cycle through cheap re-tread options like Sanchez and the like. I don't know if it's even feasible to sign a guy like Bridgewater, without knowing what happens to Alex's cap number. Bridgewater would command starter money.

    Terminate Manusky

    If I may add one more. Perhaps it might even be considered an edit to #3. Call the play where we tackle the guy with the ball before he scores. T A C K L E ! W R A P U P !

    Might as well double down.

    Only chance he retires is if he's worried about getting injured again. To the same part of his leg or even just another major injury in general. It hurts and you can do long term damage to your body. Not to mention CTE. It sure is a lot of money though, so I don't see it happening. But I bet he is thinking about his long term health during this juncture in his career.

    That he is on the "exemptions list" provides us cover, for now. But if / when he comes off, that's when the front office will be forced to show its cards. If he's found guilty but only suspended for a couple games, what then? Will they really release him? For now, I'm buying the party line: "claimed pending investigation".

    With respect to the idea that he should be allowed to work. Nobody is saying he should be prohibited from working. But fans can also have an opinion on whether they want him working on the team that they root for. Pro players rep your city. They're the public face and they wear your city's name on their uniform. People identify with their city and their NFL team. We wear the team's jerseys. We have pictures up in our houses. We dress our babies up in team onesies. I don't have a problem with people who aren't thrilled about being identified with what he did (if it turns out to be true). Even if he admits it, gets help, etc etc.. ^ This doesn't happen to be how I feel about it. But I get it.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    I think DJ's comments are the last nail in Gruden's coffin. He won't survive until next year. DJ is saying the coaching style has led to a soft and unprepared team. You can't have that. Add: And I'm not just taking DJ's word for it. I can see it with my untrained eye. We look flat and unprepared too often.
  13. During the season, players who are cut, and who have less than four years in the league, must go through the waiver process.
  14. I think he has to clear waivers, but yes he is a free agent. Waiver priority is set by the current standings, in reverse order. I think that puts us near the middle / bottom.
