10 Questions for 10 Days: Who is the real Alex Smith?
lets hope last season continues for him
It's more perplexing question than who the real Slim Shady is? Hopefully this link can inform us on Alex Smith, and his fit in Wash's offense.
Both offenses are forms of west coast offenses. The question is which Smith did the Redskins get. Last years AS was top of the league. His career suggests something different. Could be that he continues to improve year to year. No way to know until they start playing real football. I think Guice is going to help him succeed.
lets hope he does keep the upward trend
I agree, but a season long healthy Jordan Reed will be just as/ if not more helpful to his (Smith's ) success this season. So let me ask you this... IYO what's the ceiling on a season featuring a healthy Jordan Reed? Are we looking at Travis Kelsey numbers?, Something better? something a bit less than that?
I know it's just speculation, but I do appreciate your opinion on this. (anyone else who wants to chime in as well)
BTW: let's not laugh too much at the thought of a season long healthy Jordan Reed. Not likely, of course, but humor me.
Heck even having Reed for say 2/3s of the season would be huge. Throw in a predominately healthy OL, Guice & healthy Payne & Allen & I think that this team is a lot better than last season if Smith is even close to being a decent QB.
i will answer that by way of our record , 10 wins if he is healthy and producing , 8 wins if things dont go all the way as planned and 7 wins if we have issues like last season
i think like 10 wins is doable
I think Jordan Reed is the most important receiver on the team when healthy and put up numbers with any TE in the league. He would not only be key to Smith but the entire offense. I would love to see what he could do with a full season. I wouldn't put a wooden nickel on it happening but you never know.
I'll finance you.
I'll be ok if the Alex Smith we get doesnt turn our offense into
1st down Hand off up the middle
2nd down Short crossing pattern for 3 yards
3rd down Repeat 2nd down and warm up the punter.
i would be ok if he even came close to reaching the hype he gets . we can have a very good offense if he plays well
Just my opinion but the guy doesn't suck. I believe he is a step below Cousin's but not a fall off the face of the earth guy. He is a little more agile as a runner so maybe that adds to the offense.
IM trying to be positive.
SO i will take he doesnt suck.
Contrary to popular belief, I do not believe he sucks. I believe he has talent; however, I believe he is far to risk averse. This leads to him not throwing to guys who are NFL open and missing out on key yardage.
What hype are we talking about for CDC? To date, all I have heard from teammates is: professional, engaging, hard worker, personable and great to be around. As for his play, jury seems to think he is average, game manager and fully evolved a QB as he can be.
I think Dad is referring to the hype of some on this board.
you havent been looking too hard . he is being hyped up a lot
time for smith to prove he is worth the 71 mil guaranteed contract and the 2 high resources we gave up to get him
some on this board say he is better , ok fine , well better had better make up the deficit is what i am saying
