Quarterbacks Need Time!

Wow! Alex Smith performance has a tear in my eye.

I agreed with the benching of Haskins from his performance the other Sunday.  He was under constant pressure and looked spooked. Happy Halloween!

Allen had some nice rushes including his td run and then on what was a terribly designed scramble had to be replaced being injured.  There is still a major problem with how we are teaching runners to protect themselves and how defenders to tackle…as we, American football, need a lesson from rugby players across the pond on such. Too many unnecessary injuries.
As for Smith, he barely missed on one deep ball to McLaurin. McLaurin fault? Smith’s rusty? Ask a former player this week on why they miss there as this writer does not have a knowledable answer.

Other than that Smith had no time all day. Still I take a lot of pride and say season complete just for Smith. Wow! Incredibe! As Washington Post’s Barry Svrluga said today in an interview verbatim Smith’s comeback gives hope to everyone.

As for where WFT stand, it looks like Haskins is our best option at QB for the future. HOWEVER, we hardly saw Allen going downfield and Smith was on his back for most of his afternoon.
My assessment after 5 games…we don’t know if the Rivera-Turner offense is a Pinto or a Ferrari. After 5 games, we are where we were expected to be. We are learning about 3 quarterbacks a new coach and with 5 games done as pathetic as we are…we are one good stretch of football. away from claiming a equally pathetic division.

Last season after our line was manhandled by the Jets in Haskins first start, we actually played very good until we tanked.

Are we about to see a similar result, the answer lies on the arm of Allen (and possibly Smith or Haskins) and if the Hogs wake up. Hmmm… writing this Monday, it certainly looks like HOG weather!
