Eh, I am not sure what kind of message it sends when you start this sacred cow business.
Washington has a chance to send Brady packing, but they will have to put up somewhere around 20 points to do it and I am not sure that's going to be possible with a sitting duck at QB going up against that blitzing Tampa defense.
Matsko's done a terrific job with this offensive line, but when you have a pass rush that doesn't have to respect the QB as a mobile threat it's tough to block those extra guys consistently.
Heinicke is going to continue to get 1st team snaps so that works in Washington's favor and gives them flexibility going into this matchup.
I'd expect Smith to start the game and how long he plays is going to come down to how well the defense holds up against Brady.
And TB is 4th in the NFL in sacks and 2nd in QB hits. Given the extra physicality of a playoff game, Alex' health should be considered.
its potentially his last playoff start and you want to sit smith for a guy with 8 nfl games under his belt? thats such a redskins thing to do.
Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit, right?
