at least if it was contingent on a playoff appearance you could rationalize it...8-8?
It's called negotiating. You're making too much of the 8-8. The Chiefs probably started high the 9ers started low and they ended up in the middle. It's not some sign that Clark Hunt only wants to go 8-8. The Dorseid needed to walk away from this deal but they were too desperate to get Alex Smith. It's hard to even write something like that it's so ridiculous. They should have just backed away and picked up some other veteran for a year.
