    Default I'm sorry Chiefs fans...


    0 Not allowed!
    I want to start out by saying that I am not a Chiefs fan, but I do have a great respect for the team and Andy Reid. The Chiefs have made it further than anyone could have ever dreamed and they deserve it too. All that aside, with your upcoming game in Denver, I have to voice one concern...

    Alex Smith.

    Now before you call me a "hater," hear me out. I am a 49ers fan that wanted badly for Alex to do good and when Harbaugh came in, my wishes seemed to come true. The team made it all the way to the NFC Championship game and the Super Bowl was just around the corner. Of course, as you all know, Kyle Williams had something to say about that (2 muffed punts). To me, however, Kyle Williams did not deserve all the blame. Alex Smith was only 1 for 13 on third downs, 1 for 13! Still, all the focus was on Kyle Williams.

    The point I am trying to make here is that the Chiefs with Alex might, with enough heart, get past Denver this upcoming Sunday and, down the road they might even win a playoff game with Alex, but the Super Bowl is just not a plausible goal with him. The Chiefs, as far as I can tell, are just like the 2011 49ers, except with a weaker run game. Although Alex Smith might not blatantly lose you a play-off game, he will set you up for a loss. It might be in the form of a fumble from Charles or a muffed punt, after Alex puts the team in that situation by, say, going 1 for 13 on third downs. After the loss, the blame will not be on Alex, but you will know, just like I did 2 years ago, that he is to blame.

    I hope I am wrong about this, I really do (You do not know how bad I want to see a 49ers-Chiefs Super Bowl). Still, I know you know, deep down inside, that Alex is a liability.

    Again, I am sorry.

    Any QB can have games where they don't have success on 3rd downs, but those 2 muffed punts DID cost the 49ers that game, as it provided the Giants with scoring opportunities they never should have had that made the difference in that game. If those muffed punts hadn't occurred and the Niners had won, it's my belief they would have beaten the Pats with Alex at the helm in the SB. Besides, didn't Alex make some great plays the week before against the Saints to help them get to that NFC title game?

    Alex has held up very well under pressure in KC and we are aware that Alex cannot do the blocking for his O-Line or catch the ball for his receivers. The Chiefs O-Line hasn't really stepped up, nor have the Chiefs receivers stepped up to help Alex out....yet.
    I agree with almost all of this post except the "catching for the receivers" part. The blame for our passing problems, IMO, divides thus:

    50% O-line
    25% receivers
    25% Alex Smith

    Smith does need to do his part to bring down those long passes, and be more assertive with the behind the line passes to RBs. A great many of those are too high (long passes) or too short and indecisive (backfield passes). We would have won a bunch of these games more decisively had we not wasted a bunch of those situations.

    Against a team like Denver we will not have the luxury of wasting first down opportunities.

    See the dropped passes by McCluster and Bowe in the Buffalo game for an illustration of what I meant by "catching for receivers".

    I agree. You might be able to divide the incompletions 50-25-25, but the good passes being dropped by Bowe, McCluster and Charles are 100% on the receivers and that is a sizable number. They have also occurred in critical situations.

    I did say 25% was receivers fault.

    Regardless, my analysis still stands. Alex can't catch the ball for his receivers when he puts it right on the money and they drop it.

    No dispute here. Don't take it personally.

    But mine also stands when I speak of some inaccuracies on Alex's part on long and backfield passes. They certainly need to tighten up if we are to have any chance of going far this year.

    Are you talking about the same Alex Smith who, in the two playoff games, had 495 yards, 5 TDs and 0 Ints? The guy who dominated the divisional round in getting your team into that championship game?

    Feel free to ignore the fact that the two muffs cost The 49ers that game. But they were only even at that game because Alex Smith made them go.
