There is no "Brady, Rodgers, Manning or Brees guy available. Therefore, we are going to get a guy that will not be the second coming of Montana. Therefore, Smith is a huge possiblity, whether we like it or not. So, Im trying to see the other side of it, look at his positives, so I dont hang myself the day it haappens.
Now, if we sign Campbell, draft Smith or Wilson and one of those guys starts day one and shows us a real football season, Ill be stoked. But, Im mentally preparing for something a little elss than that, becuase with the QBS out there, that may be the case. Thats not a Chiefs fan mentality, it just seems like a bad year for Qbs, draft and FA wise.
The thing is, you're omitting a 3rd, and really most probable, outcome.
Alex Smith is a STARTER, he's not a backup. If he's going to come here, he's going to START.
You're right, he's not Brees or Brady. He's QB purgatory.
