    Default Game 4.....How is OUR Smith doing?


    0 Not allowed!
    Been a lot of talk about Alex Smith here on Chiefscrowd since we traded for him.

    Some say we paid WAAAY too much for him.

    Some say he is Matt Cassel 1.2

    Some say he is a "good game manager".

    But I think it is only right that until we finally reach a consensus about him that we disect his play in every game until we reach an overwhelming conclusion.

    So here are my thoughts after game 4.......

    24-41. 58.54%

    Net passing yards........288

    Yards per attempt..........7.02

    Yards per completion.........12

    Interceptions....................2....(One was a fluke bounce off DB's foot).

    Sacked........................1......0 yards lost.

    Touchdowns...................3

    Cumulative for the season.......

    88-146. 60.3%

    Net passing yards........957

    Yards per attempt..........6.55

    Yards per completion.........10.87

    Interceptions....................2....(One was a fluke bounce off DB's foot).

    Sacked........................11......51 yards lost.

    Touchdowns...................7


    Them's the numbers. Here's what I think.......

    Alex Smith is a good QB. Give him a great team and you will go a long way. And he had an exceptional day today. I mean really....41 passes and he only got sacked once? That's GREAT! Yes, he had 2 INTs, but one of them was in no way his fault. Just a fluke series of bounces.

    And yet again he was a true CLUTCH quarterback. When the game was on the line, yet again he put together a long, time consuming drive plus another 5 minute drive to lock the game up.

    He may not be a star. Maybe he is or can be. Time will tell. But IMO today was his best performance ever as a Chief. He threw mostly short but also got some important completions downfield. Maybe he won't win you a whole lot of games on his own but he won't lose you any games. And I am no longer convinced he can't win games on his own. All he seems to need is 1 receiver with a hot hand and he just gets us ahead and puts the game away when it needs doing. That is starting to smell a lot like a GREAT quarterback

    So what does everybody else think????

    Once Fasano and Kelce come back with McGrath as a third TE that is some nice tools for Smith.
