Falcons have the tools to run the table.
I think they get a ton for Smith actually . Lots of teams need QB help and this draft is shit for that . I could easily see 2 first rounders or a high first and a second .
Let's watch this one play out.
I think KC could get a 1st round, but not two.
The competition is stronger than you think.
FAs...Jimmy G...most likely will stay in SF, but they have to buck up.
Cousins, wants top dollar, but higher ceiling than Smith.
Keenum...probably can be had for less than top dollar, but I think his stock is higher than Smith's.
Draft...there are at least 3 to 4 QBs with 1st round grades...Rosen, Darnold, Josh Allen, Mason Rudolph.
So I think we're looking at a market of 8-9 QBs between the vets and rookies with 1st round grades.
SF, WAS, CLE, NYJ, AZ, DEN, maybe JAX, NYG, PIT
Looking at the picture in that light, if you are one of those teams I don't see trading for Alex Smith (and paying his $20m cap hit) being that high of a priority if the cost is in the range that you are seeking or projecting..
Maybe . If I'm a playing caliber team everywhere but QB Smith is my number one target . Buffalo, Jax, Minnesota ( if Keenum leaves ). Going to be interesting for sure . KC paid 2 second rounders so I'd be surprised if they don't get more than that but in this league weird shit is the norm
If Jerruh was in the bidding, sure. Otherwise, no.
I know it's early and a very small sample size, but I've seen Goff fail a few times already in the biggest moments. It does kind of make you wonder if he has IT.
Lol, what's funny about his comment is that LA had a tougher strength of schedule than seattle... by a decent margin. And what's even funnier, is that was partly based on having to play the mighty seachickens twice.

Based on last year's records.... Seattle had the easiest schedule in the division, and missed the playoffs...

But he saw this all coming a mile away...
He saw this coming a mile away.... 10 hours after the game was over.
Here is something I see coming a mile away, before it actaully happens, Seattle 3rd place NFC west 2018.
So one prediction is ONE game where you have a playoff inexperienced ENTIRE team vs. a team who was at the Super Bowl last year who played in a VERY competitive/difficult division. The other prediction is 9 months away, a draft, free agency, and potential coaching changes. Really?
The Rams are a good team in the making, but was it THAT big of a shock to predict the loss?
None of these teams look like a lock to me. I see no team without a vulnurability.
No, it wasnt. I was just goofing on you predicting the outcome after the game. But for all I know you predicted it before as well?
As far as my prediction, which coaching change in the NFC West will change it? Rams and niners coaches aren't going anywhere.... you expecting the ax to drop on carroll? If so, and they get a respectable coach, I will consider upgrading seattles potential.
Smith is a stop gap QB now...he can take you to the playoffs but he's not the catalyst to get you over the top...like I said earlier...a team that a good fit for him that is QB needy is DEN...yeah, he's better than Taylor in BUF, but a game or 2 is all...same thing in JAX and MIN...he's not putting you over the top...two franchises have seen him up close and said....eeehhh...I thought I could be the one to get him OTT.
You think a team will give up two first rounders to be the third team to figure out he's not the guy....I don't think they will get that much.
I could be wrong...we'll se how it plays out.
I think he's capable of winning a SB. A team like Jax would have a great chance to win a SB if they had Smith
Idk about great chance, he hasn't shown the ability to make plays consistently in the playoffs...2 wins maybe? but capable I agree.
He had a really good defense in 2015... the only year he won a playoff game for KC... the wildcard round.
In his 5 playoff games with KC he's got 1250 yards, 9 TDs to 2 INT and KC is scoring 27 PPG. Smith is not the reason KC is losing playoff games
If this happens, you can pick my avi for the next 2 years.
Then he doesn't get credit for the wins either. I am not a hater at all, but I have watched a lot more alex smith football than most. I watched him win 13 games regular season, win two playoff games then look attrocious in the conference championship. Good kid, good qb, but he doesn't have the mojo to take it all the way. I believe that.
Most of the time winning a SB is luck. Luck or superior greatness like Montana, Elway, Brady . Even some of the greatest ever won nohs or 1. Smith is not great but if Trent Dilfer , Brad Johnson , Joe Flacco can win SB then so can Smith
So he could, but he hasn't and he wont. Trent Dilfer winning a super bowl is more of a fluke than an example. But hey, if Ron Jeremy can be a poorn star, then you could be one too. Not saying it's impossible, but I would hedge my bets against that too.
