The chiefs could of had Kolb for Free, Flynn for cheaper, Carson Palmer for less than they gave up, matt hasselbeck for free, a lot of options that know the Andy Reid/ Mike holmgren systems, and they didnt. They over paid for alex smith. That should ring a bell with some angry fans that the NFL has some sort of respect for alex smith.
Alex Smith is tough, smart, efficient, and all class.
That earns respect.
I respect how he has handled himself each and every year, through all the adversity, the benchings, and the final benching last season while putting up highly efficient numbers.
But the bottom line is that he simply isn't a franchise QB capable of putting his team on his shoulders and carrying them to a championship.
As a fan that hasn't seen his team win a championship since '70, that just isn't acceptable.
