If the Chiefs rookie QB has a winning record and a QB rating of 104, I'd be ecstatic. I just highly doubt that happens.
Everyone blames Kyle Williams.
But the fact is, if Alex Smith makes just one or two plays, Kyle Williams never gets the opportunity to muff the second punt.
Alex Smith converted 1 of 13 first down opportunities.
That one conversion was a meaningless coversion as the first half was running out.
Alex Smith is more responsible for that loss than Kyle Williams.
