In terms of retreads I don't know what to think about Alex Smith.
He was having a great statistical year but the 49ers also have an above average running game, a fantastic offensive line (built by the regime for true fans), and really good receiving weapons.
To me, Alex Smith could probably be as good for the Chiefs as Trent Green was.
We didn't really win anything with Trent but we probably could have if Dick stumbled into a competent defense.
I'd still rather just draft Geno...but I don't think Alex Smith is nearly as bad as the Matt Cassel trade was for this franchise. At least Smith has talent, doesn't throw like a girl, and wasn't a college TE.
