    You know its funny. You and I have played this QB dance before, so I know you a bit, and I feel like you have already picked a side in this. Am I wrong in that or have you already put your cards all in on Heinicke? 


    Not judging at all by the way. Just curious. I think i just now noticed you sour on a guy based on how much over the top praise he gets and like rooting for the talented underdog. 


    I dont have a side at all btw, but I kinda want to see Heinicke do his thing. I feel like hes better if he can stay healthy. 


    I'm not all in on Heinicke.  His durability is a huge red flag and an issue.  But I'm not at all sold on Fitzpatrick.  He's 38 years old, and we are currently at the "get paid" part of the cycle.


    And it has nothing to do with me rooting for the "scrappy underdog", but I still think Kyle Allen is the wildcard in all of this just because of his relationship with Rivera and Turner.  But if you could guarantee Heinicke's health, he would definitely be the starter for me on week 1.  Fitzpatrick was, IMO, a low risk medium reward type of signing.  Which was cheap.  And I have no issues with him being on the roster.  But he's already being anointed by the fans and the media because of his meme status, and I think people are overrating him because of that.

    Eh, the "Taylor Heinicke outplayed Ryan Fitzpatrick throughout the week" thing is from a guy who's very much a Heinicke homer. He already came out with an article in the past saying that Heinicke should be the starter. I think it's probably safe to say that he's not exactly what you'd call an impartial observer. 


    It's a breath of fresh air compared to the other people who are treating a cicada landing on Fitzpatrick's beard second to Neil Armstrong's one giant leap for mankind.

    I like both QBs, trust Fitz's durabality much more.   Michael Phillips who wrote that article has been pushing Heinicke now for awhile.  However, I listened to Phillips explain himself on a podcast on the point and in the mix he said he thinks Heinicke gets hurt early in the season and the experiment ends fast -- so he's somewhat giving a mixed message, 


    I think his take is the correct one.  You start Heinicke to see what you have in him and if he gets hurt or plays poorly you can end the experiment early and insert one of the other quarterbacks.

    Taylor Heinicke outplayed Ryan Fitzpatrick throughout the week, and once again, Rivera promised competition at training camp.


    Hopefully Rivera is actually going to be true to his word and not hand the job over to Fitzpatrick.

  5. I feel like Kyle Allen is getting totally lost in this QB "controversy".  He was the best quarterback on the roster last season up until his injury.  All of this stuff is going to heighten during the preseason when they actually start playing and Fitztragic inevitably shows up.

    And you know he's a creep because...he's accused? And again you didn't answer back to my point...if I gather 15 people to corroborate a story together about you....does that make you guilty? Does that make the story true? 


    What about the fact that his lawyer has proof that one of the plaintiffs has tried to extort him before? Wouldn't this case be in criminal court not civil? I mean come on...


    If you have 15 different people, all unknown to each other, all of the same profession, all accusing the same person of some sick behavior, where there is smoke, there is fire.  I'm not sitting on a jury, so I don't have to convict him in a court of law, but I believe these women.  


    As for why these are civil cases and not criminal, remember that the Cosby cases all started out as civil cases.  Criminal cases of sexual assault are much harder to prove, however, when more and more of the civil cases are filed that opens the door for criminal charges to be filed.

    Ok firstly...there's gotta be a lot missing in the middle parts stories. That last one which I read the first and last. She somehow started to rub his inner thigh and then bam busted right in her face and body. Dint you assume that there had to be an indication that he was close to climaxing? And these are professional women massage therapists..you mean to tell me they don't know how to remove themselves from the situation?  Or say they are not comfortable? These stories don't add up one


    We are now over 15 women who have come forward...almost all of them with the same story of him moving his body to make them touch his penis, but somehow they don't add up?

    I have no issues with bringing him in, as long as there is a legit competition.  But the fawning over this signing is just bizarre to me.  The guy made a career out of being the guy who comes in off of the bench and plays good for a stretch (sometimes longer than others) before the wheels eventually all come falling off.

    Fitzpatrick is no franchise savior, but he's not just jack it up and see what happens like Grossman either.


    I agree.


    Fitzpatrick isn't a "gunslinger" in the vein of a Favre or Grossman.  He's also never thrown over 4,000 yards and has only thrown for over 25 touchdowns once.

    He's a totally different ride than Alex Smith.  Alex is so conservative Football Outsiders renamed their stat for checkdowns "the Alex".  Fitz lets it fly.  Totally different styles. 


    They both average near identical yards stretched out over a 16 game stretch going back to 2014.  Both very similar AY/A, passer ratings, and the main difference is Fitzpatrick averaged 5 more touchdowns and 7 more interceptions than Smith.  Yes, Fitzpatrick isn't as conservative as Alex, but he's also not someone who you can trust when a playoff game is on the line.

  10. I do not like this move.  At all.  The memes of Fitzmagic are fun, but I don't think they'll be quite as fun when Fitztragic shows up.  I am old enough to remember the game against Washington in 2018 when he threw for over 400 yards and netted 3 total points on offense.  He's an older Alex Smith with more turnovers.

    Complain all you want about Smith's "dink and dunk" style, but the guy just wins*. Always has and most likely always will. 


    *Playoffs not included.

    All he does is win.

    And get shoved out the door.

    Time after time.


    And both organizations who shoved him out the door got better and went farther than Smith ever could take them.

    It was Alex.

    We would not have made the playoffs without Alex.

    The defense would not have carried us.

    We could not win games with that defense, but another QB.

    That was proven over and over.


    This team, going back to 2018, won a game when the opposition scored more than 17 points once and Alex wasn't the quarterback.  


    This defense & AP carried the team for the first 10 weeks of 2018.  This defense carried this team for the second half of 2020.  This was proven when a guy signed off of the street looked better than the 36 year old veteran did in any of his starts.

    and being the main reason we made it to the playoffs.


    The defense would like a word, considering Alex Smith never won a game when the defense gave up more than 17 points...2018 included.  And then there was that whole thing about having to play Ryan Finlay, Nate Sudfeld, Nick Mullens, and Andy Dalton that didn't hurt either.
