If johnnydel's theory above is true then yes I imagine it is.

Ya we can, but cap wont be pretty. Either way, Jimmy can be cut for a very small hit after the 2021 season.

Unless we have a decidedly better option at QB on the roster at the time, Jimmy isnt going anywhere.

We will likely restructure Jimmy to backload the rest of his deal so he gets 2021 to be a tiebreaker between 2019 and 2020.

except this is the first time Shanahan has been able to build his own offense from the ground up. he was the OC on other teams. he called plays and used the players available to him to fit his offense. he never had personnel say or decision-making or choice. that's the difference. and all the players Kyle has now are based off his decision, needs, and wants for his system. so that's why I agree with Thanos.

And why kyle had a hard on for Kirk (who has collected a ton of air yards and is known as a quality deep ball thrower) and drafted CJ who's really only good attribute is the deep ball...Kyle loves explosives plays, he's stated many times. It's a reason he brought in Goodwin. Aiyuk is without question a downfield threat too.

If you don't think Kyle likes to go vertical then you're only fooling yourself.

never said that he didn't like them. just you with your tunnel vision-posting, literal-based assumptions as usual. he takes strategic shots that his horizontal-stretch passing offense/running scheme set up later on

1st man out of bounds wins

did I stutter?

Alex Smith throws. That is the measuring stick at this point. SMFH.

I know we were hard on Alex....and I know he failed here for the most part,....but dude ascended late to #1 Overall for a reason.

It was the wrong pick, sure, but Jimmy could only dream of having his talent.

Did you and your father forget that Garoppolo has been hurt all year, which has hurt his ability to throw deep and accurate balls? Jimmy has consistency problems due to lack of reps, but he has already proven he can make all the throws, he just cant make them consistently yet. In 2017 he was throwing darts. He shredded the Saints last year. Its pretty obvious he was throwing on one leg this season.

Watson sure does throw a beautiful deep ball.

WOULD not matter, Shanny won't call for deep balls..

The problem with Jimmy is he can't make all the throws.

.. IF Grappy can't make all the throws, then why did our HC agreed to trade for him? I don't get that part.. he and Lynch are supposed to be close and I'm sure Lynch would have agreed for Kyle to have gone w/CJ if that was the case.

.. the problem here is that Kyle be playing his stupid POKER game, often he stated that he wanted Cousins more, but who is he joking, he just said that just in case it doesn't work out with Jimmy... He'd have that excuse that he didn't get his QB.

.. after the season, he'll have another chance to get the QB of his choice.. he can cut Jimmy if he wants, and he can even trade for which ever QB he likes..

we all shall see !!!

The 2017 version of Jimmy is what Kyle and John traded for. He was making all the throws that year, he was on fire. He got the monster contract from those 5 games. He just isn't the same player who was throwing darts in '17 and leading the team to the Super Bowl last year. He's older and injury prone now. We won't know if he can get it back until he's healthy again and that probably won't happen until next year.

An old, out of his prime Alex has a way stronger arm than Jimmy

Jimmy and Alex have around the same arm strength. Alex never had a strong arm.

Alex has such a long wind up compared to Jimmy. jimmy's quick release + gunslinger mentality is what set him apart when he first took the field for us.

alex could never do what Jimmy did with a makeshift roster back in 2017. alex had a great 2017 season- taking him 12 years to do it. Jimmy did showed more in less than 10 starts than Alex showed in 10 years. laughable comparisons lol

imagine wishing Jimmy had any "talent" of Alex Smith lol

A lot of fans, me included, are frustrated by being catfished by fake franchise QBs. First Kap and now this guy.
