The Official Heinicke Hive Thread

Two things:

 

1) I think for a lot of us it is not about Heinicke over Smith, it is Heinicke over an injured Smith that can't plant and throw and/or becomes ineffective anytime he is flushed from the pocket.  If Alex Smith was 100% or at least could still make all his normal throws then that would be a different story.

 

 

For me its not even him rolling out. I think if he is on his mental awareness game he can bail and roll out just fine, not as good as pre injury but acceptably. Its his huge drop off in ability to navigate the pocket. He cannot move laterally or step up quickly if the foot he is planting is the bad leg. 

 

The 49ers game he couldn't throw. That wasn't the problem recently it was inability to slide and step up in the pocket.

I figured this was going to happen anyway, just in case. Alex stepping in as the starter is totally natural, but glad they are getting Heinicke ready.

 

Guess we all have to learn the right way to spell that, huh? lol

Holy ****! Dude was a momentary understudy for the goat!??

 

Looks like Saturday he could well come full circle.

 

Time to snatch the pebble from Brady’s hand.

With Smith STILL being sore on Thursday with just one more full day before the game I really hope we go with Heinickeeeeee. If Smith was healthy you go with him, but if he is like he was against the Eagles we will not win with him. Might as well try Heinickeeeeee even if it doesnt work out, I think its the only chance.

We’re playing with house money so I’m totally fine with Taylor if Alex isn’t ready

 

Exactly.  Alex got them this far so they they should see what they've got with Heinicke going into next year and IMO gives them the best shot to win if it's close.

Is Steven Montez getting any reps this week?  Any with the first team?

 

I think we should start Alex, once we see the bucs defensive coordinator rip up the Hienicke portion of the game plan, we sit Alex and let the kid become the legend he was destined to be.

Rivera said both Heinecke and “Man Mountain” Montez threw well.

Looks more like a wrist to me.  It matters, especially when you want to use the front of your hand for, well, you know, tossing balls....

I'm hoping they give Heinicke the start.  I'm not as excited about him as a lot of people here are, but I think you gotta go with the guy who's 100% healthy in a situation like this.  And he knows the offense really well, too.

The main reason I don't want Heinicke to start, is because if he goes down then it's definitely over. 

 

If Smith starts the game and establishes the game, then Heinicke starts the second half it'll be a spark we will probably need and they won't be as prepared.
