It's the fourth episode of The Alex Smith Report! Alex talks about the win over the Green Bay Packers, his view on the roughing the passer call, settling into the DMV, and what his plans are for the bye week. Alex also answers your questions in another edition of #QsForTheQB
Interesting, but they talked more about how Alex was adjusting to DC than Football IMHO.
Some takeaways....he is well aware of our loss vs the Aints last season, and the significance of the game next Monday night.
Richardson told LM that he knew AS would throw that long TD pass to him even before the snap. AS did not necessarily agree or disagree when asked if he thought same thing.
When asked about who would win a race between him and VD....AS deferred as being slow. But LM's sidekick has some NFL advanced stats that said on AP's long run, he it 22+ MPH...on one of VD's run's he hit 19+ MPH....and on an AS scramble he hit 18+ MPH. AS said he was motivated to run by who was chasing him....fear based motivation.
On the sack/penalty from Matthews...AS thought that it was a clean hit. He did say that later, after the game and review of the new rule, he could see where that would have been flagged...and that the rule change was based on the injury to Rodgers last season. HE does think that the rule needs some tweaking as he still thought that it was a form tackle from Matthews.
I don’t believe in team motivation. I believe in getting a team prepared so it knows it will have the necessary confidence when it steps on a field and be prepared to play a good game. Tom Landry I make my practices real hard because if a player is a quitter, I want him to quit in practice, not in a game. Bear Bryant
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
