WASHINGTON — Mister Smith is going to Washington, even though the burgundy and gold will be training in Richmond, Virginia, and what Redskins fan doesn’t want to watch him get ready for the season?
As Washington’s 2018 starting QB, Alex Smith is coming off his best NFL season.
But he still needs to at least live up to Captain Kirk, who, despite how fans feel about his three years with the Redskins, is only the 11th QB in NFL history to post three straight 4,000-yard seasons, and the only Redskin to do so. He started all 48 games, set a bushel of franchise passing records, and led a team that couldn’t run or play defense to consecutive winning seasons for the first time in a generation.
How will Mister Smith fare? Only time, and maybe observations at training camp, will tell.
