It certainly begs the question of who the guy will be in the future. My guess is we trade up for him in 2014.
They gave up a second round this year and have expectations to at least go 8-8 with Alex Smith this year to warrant him to be our starting quarterback for next several years to come barring injuries.
Injuries maybe our best hope to force the Chiefs to do something different than Alex Smith. I'm betting they will stick with him as long as they can. They look at 8 wins as an "improvement". It's not an improvement when we went the playoffs with basically the same team in 2010.
