Well, basically 2 2nds.....
By Darin Gantt
The 49ers used Kansas City’s second-round pick this year to add another pick in the third round next year. And depending on how the Chiefs play, it could net the 49ers yet another second-rounder next year. Peter King of Sports Illustrated has filled in the blanks on the conditional 2014 pick the Chiefs owe the… Read more…
Well, basically 2 2nds.....
Dumb dumb dumb. If this team goes 8-8 and is out a 2nd round pick, I just don't get this trade. Alex will be going into the final year of his contract and the team is basically no better than it was during Haley's tenure.
I really never liked this trade, but what can you do.........
And why so certain that they won't get an extension done with Alex Smith at the proper time?
The Alex Smith trade is what it is. It could work out and he could win the next 6 Super Bowls and all is well. But all we have to go off of is his previous track record, and I don't think that was worthy of #34 overall in 2013 AND a 2nd or 3rd in 2014. And if 8-8 is where you're setting the bar at whether or not that goes up to a 2nd rounder, well then you're not exactly setting it that high. Why not negotiate for it to be a playoff berth before they get another 2nd? I mean, I have a hard time believing SF would pass that up, knowing they are going to have to pay their backup QB $8.5M. But that's why Trent Baalke is running one of the best franchises in the NFL, because he got more out of KC than most thought Alex Smith was worth.

You keep bemoaning about what the Chiefs gave up for Smith & yet you were all on board with them spending the #5 overall pick in 2010 on a Safety and giving him a 6-yr 60 million dollar contract with 34.5 mil guaranteed. Tell us, which move is really dumber. There is no logic to that whatsoever & I'll take giving up a pair of 2nd rounders for a decent veteran QB that has proven he can win in the NFL & is very much in his prime over spending the #5 on a Safety -- ANYTIME !!
But I will say again his track record while not meaningless also doesn't hold a lot of weight IMO. Alex Smith as I have stated in other threads has never played with the talent around him that he will in KC. He has never taken a snap in an Andy Reid Offense. I have listed in the past how if the talent and the system wasn't right around a qb how even a great superbowl winning QB can struggle.(Kurt Warner,Brett Farve) What he has done in the past does have some meaning but not much
I'm just conditioned to never having anything nice with this team, so my initial thoughts are that they go 8-8 and lose a 2nd round pick, because that's just the Chiefs thing to do...Hopefully they go 10-6, win a playoff game, and all is better.
