Would I take him over Alex right now? No. Simply on team consistency/familiarity alone. That, and I still don't think Rivers offers more than Smith does. If Rivers really is more accurate or field aware? I expect that to be far more even as KC progresses... plus, Alex has far more mobility.
The resurgance is interesting because the only significant change has been McCoy. I think he's as great guy off the field, but comes across as a Mannish baby on the field, but I'll still take either guy over what he have and have had since TG. Rivers was even out before the game in KC in shorts when it was cold as shit. I think he's a leader and pretty tough dude, but yeah the last 2 years were puzzling based on the rest of his career.
