    Default ALEX SMITH = Done deal!!!

    Source: Chiefs to acquire Alex Smith
    ESPN.com news services | February 27, 2013
    The San Francisco 49ers have agreed to trade quarterback Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs, a league source confirmed to ESPN.com's John Clayton.


    Terms of the trade, which can't officially be completed until March 12 when the 2013 league year begins, weren't immediately available.


    The trade agreement was first reported by Fox Sports' Jay Glazer on Twitter.


    Smith, the 2005 No. 1 overall draft pick, lost his starting job to Colin Kaepernick while sitting out with a concussion but was professional at every turn and continued to mentor his replacement.


    Before his injury, Smith had completed 26 of his last 28 passes -- including going 18-of-19 for 232 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in a "Monday Night Football" win at Arizona on Oct. 29.


    He then sustained a concussion in the second quarter of the 49ers' next game, a 24-24 tie against St. Louis on Nov. 11. Smith sat out the next game as Kaepernick dazzled in his debut as an NFL starter, beating the Bears handily at home on "Monday Night Football." Smith didn't start again last season.


    The 28-year-old quarterback has thrown for 14,280 yards with 81 touchdowns and 63 interceptions in 80 career games.


    Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

He may or may not have already hit his ceiling and there may or may not be any upside to him. But he did graduate from MU, and he has not proven that he can't be a back up yet.

    The fact that we are throwing $3 mill a year at him and six other teams were trying to acquire his services. Someone sees potential there.

    Until he plays no one will know. But someone on this current staff is really fond of him.

    Just to be clear. I am not bashing him, and not saying anything negative about Daniels. I know there is biased opinions for him becuase he is an MU tiger, and biased opinions against Matt making him almost as bad as the devil.

    We just can't declare him better than Cassel, until he has proven that he is or is not. The only people who would know that (The Saints) didn't pay him as much as we did. That being said, the Vikings paid Cassel more than what we paid Daniels.

    Well the end of this thread will come when time tells the story to become, the story of Alex Smith, a CHIEF QB! So let us all let the story play out, and put to rest the cost, and focus on the fact, it is done. That being said, I would encourage you all to make finale comments so we can move on to the coming season, and the draft.
    I will make mine. Alex Smith is a Chief! No QB in this draft this year is worth a #1 over all pick, in fact, no qb in the draft is worth a 1st round pick, some are worthy of a later rounds. We need OL first round. That is my thoughts, and all I am going to say about the Alex Smith deal.

    I do remember people saying something to the effect ( and are still saying it ) that they wanted a QB taken with the #1 overall pick. Well, you got him. Alex Smith was taken #1 overall -- just not in 2013 or by the Chiefs -- outside of that, what is all the complaining about?



    The point is, nobody knows what's going to happen with Alex Smith any more than they know what would happen with a rookie QB drafted at #1 in 2013. Get it? Got it? Good.

    Supposedly Geno is coming to KC to meet with the Chiefs. While most teams will try and hide that he is coming, I believe the Chiefs are posting it to get more interest in a trade back. However, the Chiefs are saying they find him to be fantastic remind everyone that John Dorsey is not afraid to draft a QB to sit behind a starter for three years and develop. Alex Smith only has a two yeat contract.

    Also the Chiefs are shopping Albert for a second round + a pick next year. They are trying to get their picks back for A. Smith.

    Yeah but Dorsey has already come out and said that there is no QB is this draft that doesn't warrant a first overall (or was it first round) pick

    So... Tony Romo for $108m w/ $55m guaranteed and only 1 playoff win. Suddenly Alex Smith for a couple draft picks and $8m/yr looks like a freaking bargain!!! If Jerry Jones is trying to prove he's a good GM, he sure has a funny way of going about it... geez... next time you feel bad about the direction of this franchise, just count your blessings we don't have a star on our helmets. lol

    Not to mention, the 1st round pick and the two 2nd round picks the Raiders gave for Carson Palmer, plus the 13 million he is scheduled to make in 2013 along with the fact that he might not even be there in 2013. Imagine that -- 3 high draft picks and the money already paid out for a guy that only lasted 1 and 1/2 years and will be 33 this season -- and people think the Chiefs overreached for Alex Smith who will be 29 and the Chiefs brass knew they were getting 2 compensatory picks back.

    So, if one wants to look at it this way, to get Smith, the Chiefs traded from the top of the 2nd round to the bottom of the 3rd round in 2013 and traded a 2nd or 3rd round pick in 2014 for a 2013 6th rounder.

    And of course, according to the draftniks, let's take a QB or D-Lineman with the 1st pick, so that Alex Smith and other Chiefs QB's can continue to get splattered all over turf, like we've seen with previous Chiefs QB's from 2007 on to this day since Roaf and Shields retired.
