    Default Alex Smith

    Quarterback Alex Smith had a perfect passer rating of 158.3 on 17-for-20 passing, for 287 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions. Chiefs are now 11-3 and in the playoffs with him at the helm. (sarcasum starts here) But - he stinks, we payed to much for him, we should have drafted Geno, he is Cassel 2.0, etc. (end sarcasum) I had no prediction before the season started because I had no clue how he would do, but now, I am quite happy we have him.

    I remember it well. Trent had earned himself the nickname trINT.

    And Alex is playing better for the Chiefs than he did for the 9ers. A lot of that has to do with the team around him. A lot of it has to do with coaching. But the fact remains that this year Alex Smith is going to BURY all the numbers he had with San Fran.

    He already has with a career-high 23 TD passes for the season.

    I believe--though I haven't checked the stats yet, that he has also had his most yards ever passing....and that is only after 14 games with him being pulled in the 4th quarter of the last 2 games. Alex Smith is going to have far and away the best year of his career. What the hell are we going to do when we find ourselves in the AFC Championship game with a "game manager" under center? Probably just win the game and then tell the NFC to send us our next victim.

    He's smart with the ball. He's proven that he can do all that is nessesary to win in any circumstance. There's something to be said about a QB who doesn't stick out as a huge playmaker, but one that plays as mistake free football as Alex Does! If there's no need to force something then why take a risk. It's like playing the lottery, spend a dollar to win 500 million but look at those odds of winning. Each and every throw Alex makes could be the deciding factor in a game if he messes up. He's an educated player. He's only going to put that game on the line if your going to give him the first 3 out of 5 numbers. I had huge hopes for him here and was super excited to see him come over. I thought he was a class act player who could win us games. After that debacle of a season we had last season I was just happy to have hope again and Andy/Alex gave me that from the days they signed.

    He has done much better than I was expecting. If it weren't for all the dropped balls, his comp percentage would prob be much higher as well.

    I was skeptical of the price we paid for Alex and didn't see him being here more then 2 or 3 years. That being said I knew and so did most of the Chiefs world, that he was the best "win now!" option we had. The Chiefs were loosing their fan base and couldn't even give tickets away at the end of the 2012 season. Alex has out played any and all expectations I had for him. We should however put credit where credit is due, that would be Charles first and foremost. Without Charles, A Smiths numbers would not look like this. without good blocking up front, and I believe we have the best blocking wide receivers in the entire nfl. Cassel and Smith DID have similar career numbers. The biggest difference is, Cassels confidence as a leader was gone and completely nonexistent. A Smith was chuck full of confidence and was getting better in every year. We had a good team without a coach and leader, that gave us a record of 2 and 14. Add the coach Reid, and and the leader Smith and we suddenly look like a super bowl team. I love Smith, but he does get too much credit for winning, and not enough credit for not loosing. Those numbers from yesterdays game, look good for Smith, but those were earned by JC and company. The Defense with 6 turnovers deserve theirs too.

    Anybody remember this thread back in Feb. when we heard the trade was going down. Kind of 'chicken little -- the sky is falling'.

    I remember telling people that I didn't give a damn about what happened with Alex Smith in SF, because it's what he does in KC that counts now.
