Alex Smith Dolphins

Recommended Posts

LOL.... if he were to end up choosing the Titans over the 49ers that would tell me the 49ers did not want him. Obviously the 49ers are a whole lot closer to a SB, and even multiple SBs than the Titans are.

People thought the Colts under Caldwell were going to keep getting better after the SB run in 2009 after Caldwell's rookie season. What if Harbaugh and the Niners don't live up to expectations even with Peyton? That would hurt a lot. It would be SB or bust.

BTW on the Niners forum some are now hearing Smith may hold out until he hears about Manning.

I kinda have a bad feeling on SF though. I think they are going to fall short.......I think the NFC is far too competitive and you might have two new teams in the title game against next year. The same teams don't seem to go back in the NFC.

The question is did the 49ers go to Peyton because Alex wouldn't sign or did Alex go to the Dolphins because they went to Peyton

I think his agent told him that the 49ers were going to go after Manning from the get go.

I can understand all that but Peyton has the rest of his life to dedicate time to the Tenn. community/area and stay connected. He only has 4 years max to win another championship and his best chance at that is with the 9ers IMO.

But we'll see. Maybe Peyton is fine whether he wins another one or not.

Could be and he knows how tough it is to win one no matter how good your team is or you are. He may not be chasing a ring as much as some fans are and Dungy implied as much a few weeks ago. Not all teams on paper that look great win it all either.

Guess we will see. I see no reason Peyton would go to SF unless it's for SB aspirations. No reason to go there for comfort or the community.

Didn't Smith change agents now?

This whole thing is a circus lmao

I suppose he has that obligation since he's the manager of both. I hope the 49ers sat down with Alex and told him that they were doing this. Obviously, he'd hear about it one way or the other.

I am guessing that he will announce tomorrow or tuesday at the latest.

Maybe some leaks soon or there already are. I remember the leaks on Lebron before the decision and not many believed it truly was Miami until it came out of his own mouth.

Thinking about this from the agents POV, it might be smart to have Smith go talk to the Fish, if they knew Manning was not going to sign with the 49ers .... might get his other client Smith a bigger deal to stick around no?

Yes, unfortunately, this is a very high possiblity and 49er land of fans is thinking the same way. According to Jason Cole that Smith won't sign with Dolhpins unless Manning signs with 49ers...wth. Take the $$$ LOL. Smith says willing toplay back up...OMG....LOL

    • I predict all older QBs go to the Raiders because Gruden loves QBs. Rivers, Brady, and Brees all fight for the starting spot. Vegas puts odds on it. They take turns during the season to keep them fresh and Gruden finally quits scowling and is happy . Lol.
    • You must have reading deficiencies.    I've stated the same thing over and over again.   And you keep getting it wrong.    I have to believe you're smart enough to being that on purpose.   It's part of your Trump-style to arguing and fighting.    Never be wrong.    Never admit to anything.   Change the subject.   Move the goal line.   Always be on offense.    Keep attacking.   What bothers you most about me is that you can't fool me.    I can spot a con artist, and I have.    I hope this gets to your eyes before a moderator removes it.     
    • You see?    There you go again.    That's the whole point.   You pic proves nothing.   Absolutely, nothing.    Saying it does, doesn't make it so.  All it proves is that you have Slingbox -- now.     And, or course,  you ignore what I wrote.    You've not said a word about Slingbox for 5 months.    Until now.   Ignored that fact every time I called you on it.  Have you noticed how many times I've brought up your Slingbox argument that you've never responded to?    Why?    Because you can't.    Why didn't you claim Slingbox 5 months ago?     Why didn't you claim it during the season when the issue surfaced again?     Why did you wait until now,  5 months later?     And even now, with all the endless back and forth,  you STILL CAN'T EXPLAIN IT!     Busted.   Who knows?    Maybe you got Slingbox for Christmas?    Makes no difference.     You have no credibility.    And I've demonstrated that over and over again.     As for another response,  that I sent you?   I have no idea what that is.     Maybe I agreed with you?    Did you ever think of that?    Oh,  why would you ever think that was even possible?   Agreeing with you, or you with me,  is not part of the deal.   Sorry you don't get your way all the time.   Oh, how unfair.....       This is what happens when Control Freaks don't get their way.  
    • Jeudy and Hilton together would be pretty special.  No more holding the ball as if nobody is open. 
    • Love scares you because he didn't have a good 2019 season.    A season in which he lost 9 former offensive starters,  and his coaching staff and the system they played in a very successful 2018 season.      In 2018,  Love completed 64% of his passes for 32 TD's and only 8 interceptions.   Those are quality numbers.     If the numbers were  reversed and his 2018 numbers in 2019,  then you wouldn't be scared of him.       Just remember the circumstances that surrounded the kid this past season.   And he just had a good all-star game playing with talent and better coaching.    You might want to consider that as well.     Just food for thought......
