In other words, taking more chances.
Being more aggressive isn't just about throwing deep. To be a good NFL QB, sometimes you have to take chances. It sounds like Reid thinks Alex can make passes he's not attempting.
We'll see. I don't have much faith in Smith, but I don't have a problem with Reid trying to improve him as a player like some folks do.
Yup. They're going to let him sink or swim, not hide behind a conservative offense. I really don't care if he sinks, as long as they recognize the problem and move on. Rather that than have mild success because he wasn't taking chances, and convince KC fans that he's the answer.
