And ladies and gentlemen, welcome back.
We're really doing a review of Project 11 The story of Alex Smith.
Um, tonight, ladies and gentlemen.
Uh, so private 11.
You know, this is based on the actual dramatic effects of what happened.
Um, what happened to the Redskins? Uh, quarterback Alex, Miss Ultimate Forever it down.
Why this happened, how this happened and what's weird about this? So, first of all the rain that the Redskins have had two quarterbacks that this has happened to Alex Smith was the second.
Ironically, they're the only two quarterbacks are cool recorded toe have a compound fracture in the NFL.
Ironically, the to the to the big men that got him the sack TEM were both the top defensive players in the NFL at the time.
So let's go here.
Yeah, place yourself in a time machine and Utah have been November 18th you know, 2000 and 18.
You're like, OK, you know what I mean.
You see on your TV on the your TV in 2018 you see a replay of the Redskins Giants game? So you're like, OK, I'm gonna You know what? I'm gonna jump.
That I'm gonna go back tonight.
You try and travel back from November 18th 19 to time Travel Teoh November 18 1985 It all on your TV On your TV on the TV, Joe Thighs One's going back to past he looks to throw But then you noticed Lawrence Taylor coming up the middle are coming from the side Lawrence Taylor and two and three of his dudes.
Get in there and sack him.
This actual size man Quarterback Joe Size manhood one Ah, Super Bowl M v P and one M v.
P was a big, big, great player and your and your life.
And then you turn and you look at you know, you're like you look at it So I get it.
It's a normal sac, and then you look at the slow mo review and you see how you see his lead and you see how is lead.
You can kind of see the bone that comes out of his leg.
And so then you're like, OK, then you're like, OK, OK, I'm gonna go.
I'm gonna you know what? I'm gonna go home.
And then after that you realize, Oh, Yeah, you know what? Let's try and travel to 2018.
Let's travel 33 years in the future, which would be 2018 Um, 33 years Exactly.
And the Redskins at the time were actually playing the Texas.
And you're like, OK, you know J.
Watt's gonna bring fresh on Alex Smith, but we've got Alex Smith.
Alex Miss gonna lead us like two consecutive playoff runs.
We might even win the Super Bowl our little But so Alex Smith drops back on a pass.
He's looking, he's around.
And then you see J.
Watt and Jay Z water another dude tackle him and then you're like, Okay, what's wrong? You know, and then you get up and you look that he's not getting up.
Do you like I love problem like a thorn, a twisted ankle or something, Nothing to be worried about.
And then you see the car coming out, and then when they get the card out, they don't realize it.
But then the they bring out the air cast, you see the air cast and you see an injury and you see a stretcher coming up.
You're like holy sh Nikes.
This is not good.
And And then you realize about two hours later that he had had a compound fracture.
That Joe Thighs man had an identical compound fracture.
Ah, Year, 33 years before.
Until you know the right skins.
I don't know if it's a curse that every 30 years they are quarterbacks is a compound fracture.
I always thought of Joe Theismann's as a, um as korma for what he's done, you know, change his name from the Zeman.
This Eiseman just because you want a deal to win the Heisman, which I'm pretty sure he might.
Oh, Joe Flacco signed with the Jets that some news, Um, see where? I hadn't gotten that, Um, but, uh, you know, So you say, you see, like, um, yes, he off sign Carlos five lays in yeoman, But then, Okay.
You're, like, a year later.
The Jets were signing Joe Flacco.
Who? Um, there A year later, you're like, Okay, they're coming out with this thing.
I don't know what this is gonna be.
And then, you know, you're listening to an ESPN daily podcast right before this thing goes and you hear the girl that was reporting on it.
She tells you that he almost died.
And you're like, Holy ****e. He's okay.
Well, I need to wash.
Is so but And I ended up going on the couch watching, you know, everything.
And so these are my takeaways from, and I'll obviously I'm not gonna spoil it, you know, it opens up with just the play.
It opens up with the play with that day of the play.
And then we're actually know it opens up with the season play when Taylor brought down Josi Zeman.
And then it goes 33 years later on it shows, you know, I look smith getting taken down, munchies.
You what? And then you get the black, it fades to black.
And then I guess it shows it is like, you know, the whole entire thing that's happening during that play.
And then you, I guess I guess they, like, talk about some things with him, you know, after that, then it goes cuts to his family's house.
But no, it starts with him with his kids, and he's got the cast on the mechanical cast on, and then it flashes back to the season thing.
and then it goes to the incident he had.
But it's a great start.
There's a great It is great.
And so it just breaks down basically and breaks down pretty well.
Breaks it down pretty well.
Considering that you know Alex Smith.
The dude got a little slight killed.
You know, he's he had black, like, bacteria inside his leg.
And I mean, actually his is at some time his, uh he's into return.
Teoh, not a football injury.
Never wasn't football injury. Probably.
You guys would probably never guess what this injury turned into.
The injury turned into a military injury.
Like he had sustained a massive blast.
You know, blast.
He had sustained a bomb.
He was in land mine, Neil.
And so they were debating, like, or you cut this thing off or we have, you know, are we gonna remove tissue? Let's remove tissue.
Okay, So they removed tissue and then now Alex Smith, permanently after they were removed.
Tissue to get this thing pretty much trying to get this thing covered.
You are most tissue and ah, skin from his legs from his upper ledge.
And so the sides of his legs look kind of red, but it's fine.
It doesn't, You know, it doesn't affect him There.
Are they surgically removed that so he won't feel the pain.
And so, you know, they take the hospital, and after this, I'm just gonna break down.
What? You know what happened with the blood? No, I was Project 11.
So Avery Law Hospital, after they realize, Oh, God, this compound fraction it's no good.
They're like, Yeah, he's not coming back.
He's not coming back this year at least.
And everybody's like, Oh, yeah, it's broken.
Like that's all I got was, you know, here.
And he was forced to 60.
All we got was a broken leg.
You know, I was going around.
I even called Adam Schefter on ESPN to try and get some words out of them.
But all I heard was broken life.
And, um, I physically went on the ESPN and trying to get a hold of Adam Schefter, which I did not succeed, considering that they called me a kid and they hung up on me.
But who cares? Um Ah, let's see.
Um, so that meeting hospital and they realize Okay, this cast is, you know, they take off the aircraft now, like Holy Holy Holy notice that I'm not saying anything.
I'm just saying Holy, holy, Holy, Holy Fully Only holy holy Or you.
You know, all I'm saying is, holy um, holy psyches, they say, Holy sh Nikes.
This thing is not what This is not good.
There's bone popping out.
So I put him into surgery, just like three surgeries overnight.
He he's just like the whole entire surgically, like putting in the leg.
You don't reattaching it and they're like, OK, well, you know, let's just let him go.
You know, they said, Listen, it's gonna be two days until he's out.
And, you know, once he's out, he'll be fine.
He doesn't need you.
So they let him out.
And then he developed a high fever, and they end up taking him back, and they end of reopening the cast.
And they realize you know what guys way should a clean the world.
He got a football injury.
We should clean the dirt out of his bloodstream, you know, are out of this skin or I haven't bone.
So we should you know, So what is Bowler locked out in Russia gets his soft, which had bacteria from, um a lot of stopped from, uh, no, namely other stuff, and they wouldn't be surgically reattach that boat.
Bacteria floated little blood stream, and so bacteria flows into his blood from this is not good, because that now, at the time you're seeing pictures of his leg, his legs bulging, it looks like there's like black, you know, there's like his leg is filled with black fluid and it looks like oil's coming out of his leg.
And so they're like, you know, we're either gonna cut it or work in a Or were you trying to say this thing? And so it was like, OK, we're trying to save this thing.
So I am going through a lot of surgeries and a cutting back his whole entire skin down here getting into the bone in of striking that bacteria.
And there's like sharpies marking silver Sharpie markings that were like, you know, that the tally each day where the bacteria waas and they ended up going in and they got it.
But, um, so Alex Smith, you know he's back in the hospital and you know that it almost killed.
And so, you know, they read their read puts in things on.
They surgically remove some of the leg, some of the skin from his upper leg, you know, because he's like, I don't wanna I don't want to look like a freak When I you know, I just there like either we're enough to amputate your leg or you There's all there all term in these you can, like, take cheek skin from your cheek.
You could take skin from your arm.
You could take skin, you know, muscles from your hand.
You know we'll take anything and he says, No, I want it where it's going to do them least damage.
So let's do my legs.
And so they get to the side of the leg like right here.
But right there, I know I have an offer.
10 with their right there, like right there, they take off, strip that skin.
Then they stripped skin over here and around the same part, and then they short skin like right here.
I believe we're right here.
We're on the waste as pretty cool.
And you know, it's pretty cool seeing how he, you know, did this thing.
And then they take, you know, a nailed casting like an actual cast, and they shove it in their using nails, and that mechanical cast allows him to walk.
And so he's released from the hospitals and he's walking.
And so you know, he's walking, and then they put him.
They send in the San Antonio, uh, military hospital.
It's a rehab center for people that have gotten, you know, blasts and have got meal in bombing things until a lot of people there are like, You know what? You might as well amputate your leg.
It's gonna become a burden for you, you know, until Alex, despite getting here, hearing all these people, he says, No, I'm gonna keep my like, I'm gonna keep But my like I trusted the doctors.
It I think you might like.
So he's his left and he still if we have it with the coaches there and they're like, You know what? Your you have a good you have a really bad chance it ever going and, you know, maybe walking in the next five years, you know, maybe running in the next five years that that that might just completely disfigure your life.
And he said, and he says, OK, fine.
And so I start walking, you know? And you know, he starts throwing any, you know, he plays and he basically lives there.
Uh, in 2000 started 2019 then they take him home, and he, uh he's still he's still like his contract doesn't expire until 2022.
That he was initially supposed to retire in 2022.
I can see him play until 2024.
I could definitely see him playing until 2024.
Considering you know how this is knocked him off, I think that he'll be able to, you know, come back well rested and you'll be able to put.
But, you know, my dad was like, You're insane.
He's not gonna play again, But, um, you know, you have to check his instagram in his twitter for that, but which I ended up going and getting my hand check this instagram like, Yeah, look, it's textbook.
He's come, but no.
So they have the, you know, they keep the the medically the medical caste and you can look up pictures now off.
What it looks like with that met with that mechanical cast off his leg is all bruised.
There's a little slit where the boat went through.
And that's what the medical doctors there they they said, you know, we're gonna remove the cast.
And so they removed the cast and removing the cast, you know, is just pulling a little bit like a name nails off there.
And then, you know, you put it back in its talking to her because his leg is so.
I mean, his leg is so juiced up that it has, like, it has no feeling and, you know, it's he then new demo with so much cat, it's was so much, you know, paying killers in his leg that he's not going to feel anything in his leg.
But, you know, they take him out and he, um So they take him and they like, Okay, well, you know, we're going to rehab you this and he can have coming home after Then he comes home and he's walks around, you know, he stays at home.
He's pretty much set.
He's a smart dude.
I'm pretty sure he's gonna make the right decisions and he's gonna probably have a good life because, I mean, the fact that he got a $90 million contract were a four year, $90 million contract back in 2018.
And that contract had, like, a lot of bonus money.
Plus you, plus Kansas City, given one a lot of money.
And also the Niners got, um, a lot of money.
I think he's gonna be set.
Plus, you know, he might even have, was it called? It's like when you retire your issue this because you're older and you get like, a certain amount of money each year.
See you like 8000 year.
Something is like It depends on how much you worked for a certain for action.
It's like a I can't remember.
Uh, you can also have Social Security, which I'm sure he has, and he's probably not gonna have to work again, But nor is his family.
Norris's mole are Norris's Excuse me.
Nor is his wife.
I mean, even though I think his wife is probably getting more into like the fashion sense is now because you know I'm Alex Smith's life, I can do anything I want.
No, I'm currently stuck.
Your baby sitting. My sister.
I made, uh, pizza made her nachos.
I made homemade nauseous.
Lee made I grill.
I toasted a ah ah, tortilla to where it's just like it's you know, it's a slate.
I mean, tortilla chips.
And then I took it and I put, uh, and I put, like, a couple, you know, those cheese, you know, the grated cheese on it and put into the microwave.
Let it, you know, disintegrate.
Well, said I Are you okay? Are you okay? Okay.
Listen, Joan, um, yeah.
So projects 11 is really weird.
And I mean, it's really cool.
Actually, it's like it's pretty cool.
It's one of the best thesixties I've ever had I've ever seen.
Now, do I think that they could have been a 30 for 30? Yeah, he sixties are for movies.
They shouldn't even call me sixties.
They take up our time.
But that's with commercials are only 37 minutes without him in 30 for thirties.
I think you have to.
They have to be at least like 48 minutes.
I think are like 52 minutes.
I can't remember.
I mean, it could easily they could easily have had his doctors actually like elaborating more, given some more raw film, you know, But they should have.
They're probably gonna do, like, apart to, like, Project 11 or Project 11 part to the, uh, you know, he could come back if he comes back.
I guarantee you, that's the story of the century.
They're gonna make a 30 for 30 on that.
And even if he comes back playing for the Redskins, anyone's the Super Bowl is he wants a Super Bowl for the Redskins.
I do not think he will come back for the Redskins in his career.
Um, but some teams that could see him actually playing four teams like the Jets for a year to you know, I know they got in Flacco because Flacco, you know, is gonna teach Donald and hope that he can teach Donald had actually play.
And so let's see, like, I mean, he could play for, you know, potentially for the Steelers.
But so then he's like, apparently he was admitted back into the, um Teoh.
He had gone his mechanical cast off and he was starting to walk normally.
He didn't have the actual, like nails in it anymore.
They actually put in iron roll on in their titanium wrong toe help like it's like a plate that was gonna help him.
Still, it's gonna help run.
He just basically so plate.
You know, baby trees are out there and you put baby trees and you tie him to like a little wooden stick wouldn't stick.
It's about the height of the tree, and you tie it so that it doesn't, like, fly and away in the wind.
Well, basically what they did for his legs, they put a titanium rod in there, and it's gonna help his leg, you know, for the rest of his life.
Just gonna help his leg, and it doesn't hurt, and it is gonna help his leg for the rest of his life.
And, um, most likely, if he goes back to football, there's a good chance that they may take that out.
You know, once he gets more stable, but he actually ended up going back to the military heist hospital because he felt like he the doctors warn him in there a year later, you know, to check out his, you know, his rehabilitation.
And he goes there and the doctors air.
Can you check if you used, um, you know, if you use like, magic on your leg, he's not sure that's not supposed to be with your leg is supposed to be like, and then they're like, and then the doctors air.
You know, the doctors air.
You know the doctors.
Really? You have, uh you have what we call is a miraculous body because that that should not be happening within a year.
They expected him when he was coming back.
They expected him not toe have that Ron in.
It's like having a break.
It's having brace.
It's like having braces and three months versus having braces all 24 months.
Yes, kids, it's two years and even more the first time around, I had it for three years, so I've had him for five years now.
This is my second time.
But I mean, I tell you, ladies and gentlemen, um, so it also as he leaps and Iran, he leaves around February because he goes January to January, our January February, he leaves the first week of March.
Right is this thing is rubbing up and they don't show this, But I've actually done to research and he's gotten, he's gotten better.
He's like he started to run and the military facility.
They were showing some pictures of him like actually, um, taking snaps and like running around throwing the ball.
He actually ended up pulling back to the Washington Redskins training facility and throwing the ball.
And, you know, that's why a lot of people a lot of people, have conducted a little bit of theories considering that robber Riviera Onley has to keep bees when he should normally have three.
Colt McCoy was released.
Um, let me check out.
Let me check that out.
One side him my eyes.
Yeah, we'll see.
And f l Here we go.
Washington Redskin Redskins roster.
Okay, they have there.
Three q B's they dio or four.
Yeah, I mean, Alex Smith still on the active roster right now.
He's out on the active roster is returned.
Stephen Lawrence says Dwayne Haskins.
Call Allen and Alex Smith.
Now I can imagine why they bring in Kahlout.
Call Alan has brought into scared Dwayne Haskins.
Um, but I know that Steven Mullan says, is brought in just because I think that Ron Ramiro holds a doubt in Dwayne Haskins and call out one.
I think he pulled a doubt, and when Alex Smith comes back, he's 36.
Right now, I think Alex Smith will be able to perform.
You know, Stephen want says, is a great quarterback.
Um, he's actually the same agent Dwight Haskins, But you know, he's rookie and I think seem want is to be able to do some things that you know.
It can't be done on.
Well, he actually has been shown like he did races within sons.
He actually was running.
He was often sprinting.
He's been working out during quarantine.
He's been released now to the active roster on this team, and I think that this could be an actual say, You know, this could be this could be cool.
This could be actually, nice job you.
I think that all ultimately, uh, Steven Mullan says, is brought in to show, uh, to show what he can dio.
And I mean, um, Alex Smith.
I don't think they can't cut him his nose money.
And, um, I think the lose money.
Actually, I don't think they want, you know, I never hurt.
Um, but I think Steven Montez was brought in there because I think Stephen Montas actually may make the actual talk wine.
So if I had to make a guess, I think it's gonna be Dwayne Haskins.
Call Alan and I mean, I think Mullen says in The Dropout, I think Mont.
Says, want actually play on the active roster? I think the third quarterback will be Alex Smith, considering that he probably will need another year to just like, you know, get right him and come 2022 He's going to just get out there for last season, try and get in there.
But you know what kind of makes me mad as they moved on from them so fast? You don't know.
Seeing this, I realized why.
But you know, Alex Smith is nursed back to health and he's pretty good, and I could definitely see him, like maybe the Chargers bring him in or something like that, you know, you know, to come in and you know, Coach that air play for that team.
I mean, the Redskins were on the right track you know, let's see why I'm looking up.
Because I have my pennants, um, off their every team.
Considering off who's considering the changes off the logos and most NFL teams now, so the chargers want is out of date.
The Falcon soldiers out of day.
Um, the Colts one is out of date.
I'm pretty sure colds kind of alter their like logo to make it kind of small.
Er's um Oh, what was the other guys you remember? But thank you, Ladies and gentlemen, Alex Smith should come back.
I think that he will be ableto come back every day and I'll see you tomorrow.
