Default Redskins QB Alex Smith

Watching Texans/Redskins game yesterday and saw Redskins QB Alex Smith suffer a gruesome leg injury on a routine sack that looked as bad as Joe Theismans . One of those so bad they did not show replay

Reports said they did immediate surgery on him at hospital, broken fibula/tibulia . Ironically this was on the exact same day 33 yrs ago Theisman had they injury

Man that was tough to see. Was in garage putting a tv table together for my Wife and had game on. Just happened to look up in time to see the play

Yeah, that sucked. Hopefully not a "Joe Theisman" break.

Me too. FWIW, you could tell Theisman's leg had been crushed into a number of pieces on the play, Alex's didn't look nearly as bad.

Same yard line and same final score as the Theisman break, apparently.

It was just as bad, it just that you didn't see it snap and buckle like Theisman's did.

Poor Alex Smith!! I hope he makes a complete recovery and gets to win some Super Bowls. I wonder if San Francisco regrets letting him go in favor of Kaepernick?

How many Super Bowls did Smith take the 49ers to? How many did Kaepernick?

And to make it worse, I hear the Redskins signed Mark Sanchez!

He is a 'safe' game manager. Alex Smith will never make it to a Super Bowl in this day and age. Regardless of this injury. He will make it to the playoffs a ton, but never the big dance. Kaepernick did because for a few years he had a flash and dynamic playmaking ability. Would you rather have no chances, or one chance? The politics can't take away that Kaepernick was a tough QB to defend for 2-3 years.

Since you asked, I’d rather have a qb with mental capability then superior physical skills. Montana, Brady, Manning’s, Brees.... Jus me tho. Go buy some Nike’s

I have read a book called "When We Say Never." I and the author and many others have had times when things we thought would never happen happened. Look at Trent Dilfer with the Bucs winning a Super Bowl. I think that most of the thoughts I have read on Trent is that he needed not to make too many mistakes and let the team win the Super Bowl with Defense and other things besides just super star quarterbacking. If Alex Smith found the right team he certainly could be part of a winning Super Bowl Team. I wish that a healthy Alex Smith was part of the team I follow, the Dolphins.

I wonder what happened to Kaepernick? Could he have some sort of injury? He still is pretty young for a quarterback. Obviously the Dolphins and other teams are willing to have folks who kneel on their team so maybe Colin has lost his mojo.

Dilfer won with the Ravens. Game was at Bucs stadium. He had what could be argued as the best defense ever. His team scored 2 TD's on returns and 1 on defense. He threw for 153 yards. So, yes, it is theoretically possible, but statistically unlikely as hell. Dilfer had the perfect storm on the other side of the ball and a 1,9xx yard running back that season to get there.

However, the game was soooo different back then. The rules were different, and didn't cater to high scoring offenses.

I think what happened with Kaepernick was mental. Don't know what triggered it, but for a few years he was a decent starting QB. Then it just went poof. Kinda like a golfer that loses his swing or gets the yips.

Hey! Look at it this way: last year the Eagles were on a tear, lost the QB, and ended up winning the Super Bowl. Maybe that's in the cards for the Skins!


Naaahh.
