Alex Smith’s Recovery

Recommended Posts

I don’t know if anyone has seen this video posted by his wife but it’s inspiring. Poor guy has been through hell and back. I’m rooting for his comeback but if he never plays a down of football again he has my respect forever.

It's almost impossible that he will ever play again. He may not even want to anymore.  17 surgeries so far.  He's a tough guy for dealing with this injury.

Not many players in the NFL right now that have gone through as much ***** as him, and been such a great dude in the process. 

 

- drafted by a terrible team and playing for terrible coaches which led to playing poorly (on him as well) and being labled a bust.

 

- finally got a competent coach and started to look like a good QB.

 

- replaced by a guy who athletically just had more to offer (which, in hindsight is a questionable decision after all).

 

-traded to a team that made him look very good- played with a great coach and looked really good for several years.

 

-replaced again by a superior talent and maybe an all time great.

 

- traded to a team that aspires to one day be as prestigious as a burning pile of *****.

 

- makes said dumpster fire look really good for half a season

 

- gets devestating injury that potentially ends his career. 

 

 

All that to say- best wishes to him. My advice would be to get right physically and find a new profession. Football isn’t worth the risk at this point.

Play again?  To hell with that.  He has plenty of money.

 

I just hope he can live a long life free of pain and debilitation.

Who am I to say but ...  I think he should retire.  Find a lice warm beachfront home and relax and enjoy the family.

Good for him. I hope he recovers the use of his leg without pain so he can enjoy retirement. I wouldn't play again if I were him.

I think the real lesson here is, NFL players are stealing all the hot women.

That's a good summary! An Alex Smith Football life would be interesting for sure. Best of luck to him.

There is no way...no team is going to clear him medically...i think the doctors would be worried about being held personally liable or maybe even having their licenses suspended if they got reviewed if something happened.

No chance he plays again.  He should enjoy life back on his feet.

He's had all those surgeries, limps around Redskin Park with a cane, and is a millionaire.  Plus, if he were to come back, lest we forget he'd be playing for the Redskins, an extremely solid and caring organization.  No thanks.

Having a reason to rehab and staying motivated to get back in the league might keep his mental state very healthy.  But yeah, he's never going to play again whether doctors clear him or not.  He can't walk properly and may never be able to.. let alone run, plant, take a hit, etc..

Wow, seeing him running and lifting like that, I thought he wasn't even close to that level.  

 

It's really too bad that horrible injuries like that aren't reserved for people who deserves it.  Like Brady!!!!

Why would he play Again?  To throw 17 td passes and lose in the first round of the playoffs? He had a nice career and made good money.  Have an awesome retirement Alex.  You did well in life.

Career earnings put him at 161 million currently.  He did make 27 on the signing bonus from Washington, and the guaranteed salaries of 13 mil in 2018 and 15 mil in 2019.  2020 is i believe injury guaranteed - so there's another 16 million.  It sucks that his career is over - but he played 10 games for Washington and will get 71 million dollars.  I'd cut my leg off for 71 million dollars...
