Alex Smith 60 Minutes Interview: “This year has only emboldened for me that I can play at this level”

Despite quick playoff exit, Washington fans believe in the future; NFC East rival fans not so much

Photo by Rob Carr/ Vince Lombardi famously said that “winning isn’t everything; it’s the only thing”. Well, the Washington Football Team didn’t do a lot of winning this season; they finished 7-9, but at the top of the NFC East, and were bounced from the playoffs on the first Saturday of play. But fans have responded to the team and its direction. Ron Rivera and Alex Smith have provided ‘feel good’ stories through their respective battles against the coach’s early-summer diagnosis of cancer and the quarterback’s 2018 leg injury and subsequent...

ERFA, RFA and Washington’s quarterbacks

Photo by Patrick McDermott/ Who’ll be in the QB room in 2021? Alex Smith’s situation The Washington Football Team has only one quarterback under contract for 2021 that has ever taken a snap in an NFL regular-season game: Alex Smith. They also have Steve Montez, the former Colorado quarterback. Montez is, in my eyes, a practice squad quarterback; the fact that Ron Rivera signed Taylor Heinicke off of his sofa in December rather than trusting Montez, who had been with the team since training camp, says all I need to know to inform that opinion. Alex Smith’s...

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports Ron Rivera speaks to the media Ron Rivera spoke to the media today due to this week's playoff game being on Saturday night.
