      The Bill Callahan era began here at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. For the first quarter it was really,really bad football being played by both teams. 
      The Redskins were determined to establish the Run game. The First Quarter all they established was that they still couldn’t run. Or pass. Or do much of anything. 
       
      It wasn’t until the 2nd Quarter that Peterson was able to start ripping the worst Run D in the League for chunks of 18 & 24 yards. The Skins managed to score a TD with a 25 yard pass to Scary Terry McLaurin. 
       
      The Dolphins would open the Second Half only managing five plays before the Redskins would get the ball punted back to them. They would run a balanced run/pass attack of six plays for 70 yards in 1:25 ending in McLaurin’s second touchdown of the day. The Defense would then get a turnover allowing the Offense to get to Field Goal range and add another 3 points to make the score 17-3. 
       
      To open the Fourth Quarter, Hopkins would miss a 55 yard Field Goal, leaving the score at 17-3.  After being sacked five times, the Dolphins would pull their own switcharoo at QB and go to Ryan “Neckbeard” Fitzpatrick which resulted in a touchdown drive for them, making it 17-10. They went for & recovered the Onside Kick. They also managed to not score any points after that. The Dolphins would find theirselves with ball at the 2:00 Warning. Fitzpatrick would take them on a 9 play 75 yard touchdown drive with six seconds remaining on the clock. Miami went for the win with the 2 Point Conversion and failed. The Redskins would recover the onside kick by Miami and Keenum took a knee to get the Redskins their first win of the season.

Whats going to happen when Alex Smith is healthy next year

Recommended Posts

I believe "if" is the proper conjunction to use in that question.

 

I don't think there's much of a chance Alex comes back.

He will never be cleared to play football again.

I hope we give him a coaching job

Is he even gonna be healthy next year? Last I thought about him he still had that internal combustion engine on his leg. :(

He got that taken off back in July. A few weeks before training camp i think. He was on crutches all through training camp. But yeah i dont think he’ll ever play football again anyway so i dont think this should even be a question.

Assuming he's healthy and that's a big if, what happens with him greatly depends on what happens the rest of the year with haskins and with Gruden. 

There's way, way too many variables to know but we can certainly speculate.

Cool, we've agreed this should be Haskins team by then.

 

So what do we do if he doesnt want to retire?  Isnt the third year (2021 offseason) when cutting him becomes more realistic? 

 

To be clear, are we waiting until the doctors say hes healthy enough to cut and not get in trouble for it?  Will he ever be?

well he says he wants to try to play again.  And we can't cut him without it being to expensive.  So assuming he's cleared he becomes the most expensive backup in Redskins history, maybe third string

He's going to continue to cash his check every week just like he is doing now.  And the quality of this roster will suffer from it.

If he can play special teams then he’ll be active.

 

And God forbid if Haskins starts going North/South.  This offensive philosophy is for East/West and Smith can show him how it’s done.

Let him start, see how the season is going, if they aren't in the playoff race, sit him and play Haskins, but give him one chance to go out on top

If he wanted to go out on top then he probably should have signed elsewhere.

He was on his way to going out on top until the injury. 6-2 at that point, remember?

He didnt go to the colts..or...or cardinals or vikings or the dolphins or the Buccaneers but to the Redskins to most likely end his career in the absolute most horrendous way imaginable..of course it was with the Redskins..of course.

Hell he could have stayed as a backup to Mahomes on a legit championship team but no he chased the money. He got what he wanted but he also literally put himself in the absolute worst case scenario - team in perpetual limbo.

I think we would have blown it anyways. We were winning with smoke and mirrors.

This is a serious question- why have I seen so many people say 6-2? We were 6-3 and losing to Houston when he got hurt. But it''s just weird how often I've seen 6-2 written on this site.
