I really believe Smith is a better QB than some are giving credit for. The guy doesn't have a WR worth a damn to throw to. Give this guy some receiving help and we'll be ok. Devante Parker and Demariyus Thomas are on the trade block. I have heard Golden Tate's name tossed around, too.
BTW, IIUC, The $71 million is only guaranteed for injury.
Better receivers than what Cousins was working with and he never had issues getting the ball down the field or using our best offensive player (Reed - when was actually out there).
We did not "can" Cousins. Cousins "canned" us. Huge difference. Biggest myth on this board.
Matter of perspective. We canned him in 2015 & 16. He canned us in 17. In the end the feeling was mutual.
Keen to see who we move on to next because it sure ain't Alex Smith. AS will end up being the most expensive backup. I think we'll be in the QB draft sweep stakes next year if both Allen and Gruden are fired. If Allen stays he will once again protect his mistake by insisting the new coach use AS I'm sure. Wont be a good look getting a first rounder next year only one year removed from trading for AS.
rskin72: Wonder who else was injured today. Schreff….

Carnack: Dunbar lost his mind
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:20 GMT -5
Carnack: still very much a WIP
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:44 GMT -5
rskin72: Yep....we are. But we need to beat Dullass and NY. The Fecals will be a tough nugget.

Carnack: we match up wel and play the eaglestough every year. Its teh Cowboys we have a hard time getting by
Oct 14, 2018 15:09:19 GMT -5
rskin72: AS still has some growing pains with his receivers. Just not totally in synch. And God only knows it seems like every team musters a rush against us
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:04 GMT -5
rskin72: Yea, I will agree with you about the fecals and turds....the Gits also seem to have our number
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:34 GMT -5
rskin72: Or KC's number to be specific
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:44 GMT -5
Carnack: we will at the least split with the boys and the giants this year, though I think we will sweep the giants..the Eagles are the best team in the division and we will have to bring our A game to beat them.
Oct 14, 2018 15:11:50 GMT -5
rskin72: And hopefully have some folks back from injury. Need to be at full strength....or close to it
Oct 14, 2018 15:12:33 GMT -5
Carnack: we just need to get this secondary some experience without losing....its obvious they are very raw
Oct 14, 2018 15:13:34 GMT -5
rskin72: we should sweep the Gits. Manning has looked bad. But he does have OBJ...and their rookie RB looks very good
