Expectations and Alex Smith

Just curious. Inspired by the ongoing thread about "Geno fan" expectations, and I'm curious what the thinking is on the other side of the fence. What do people expect out of Alex Smith over the next, let's say, 2-5 years? Specifics, even, yardage and TDs, wins and losses, offensive rankings, etc. This is not a thread with an agenda, I'm genuinely curious what people think, so let's try to keep this from turning into snipe thread #368.

No, we're hoping for better than mediocrity (the most overused word on this forum, by the way. Maybe some of you should get a thesaurus).

This isn't baseball and sabermetrics. There is far more year to year variance in QB rating than OPS, for a whole host of reasons.

Mediocrity wouldn't be so overused if it didn't perfectly define Alex Smith and the Chiefs.

I think we have a better chance at 5-11 that the other way around.

I suspect we will be better and I actually think there is a better chance of going 11-5 if Smith does get hurt. Stanzi or Daniels might pull something out of their rectums. We know the verdict on Smith.

So you are saying its just as likely that Alex goes 1,900 yards 17 TDs and 22 INTs at 54%?

I never noticed your signature with those stats until now. That pretty much says it all.

If we're no no longer allowed to use mediocre, then I hereby nominate "fairish", "humdrum", "middling", "no great shakes", "pedestrian", "second-rate" and "unexceptional" for average mediocre replacement and "crappy", "junky", "ratty", "raunchy", "rinky-dink", "rubbishy", "shoddy", "small-time", "tatty", "tawdry", "trashy" and "two-bit" for inferior mediocre replacement.

I think we will win 7 or 8 no matter who the QB is. I think there is a chance we will win 10 or 11 games with Alex Smith (only because I don't think we were as bad as the 2-14 record indicates, competent coaching last year and we would have had a better record).

But the truth is that none of us know what will happen. Declaring Alex Smith a failure at this point is ridiculous.

I didn't say you aren't allowed to, just that is would be nice. It seems that a lot of people here just parrot each other so every post from the people with low expectations starts looking exactly the same.

First, you're on a Chiefs forum, so the usage is natural. Second, I could have just said "A True Fan's wet dream," but this makes vaginas sensitive.

Well Clark definitely thinks Andy is the sh** otherwise Reid probably doesn't take the job as keg said.

No, I am saying Andy Reid believes he can make Alex Smith more productive than he has been previously, and Reid has SOME history in doing that with players. That's all I am saying. The chance of Alex Smith throwing for 4000+ yards with limited interceptions is possible, and Reid thinks he can get that. Main argument is that Reid thinks he can get that.
