I was on the Geno bandwagon, but I'm willing to keep things in perspective. When guys like Kiper and McShay insisted that there are no elite quarterbacks in this draft, we called them ****ing idiots and ignored them. But guess what? Based upon the first 3 rounds of the draft, it sure looks like every GM in the NFL agrees: THERE ARE NO ELITE QUARTERBACKS IN THE DRAFT THIS YEAR.

Given that, the only choice Andy Reid had was to get the best free agent quarterback available. The Alex Smith haters on Chiefsplanet insist that Alex Smith is simply Matt Cassel Part Deux, but I find that hard to believe. Cassel elevated suckage to an art form. Alex Smith looked a helluva lot better the last two years than Cassel ever did.

The fact is that there weren't any Drew Brees type free agents out there. So Dorsey and Reid are putting together the best roster they can under the circumstances.

How about waiting before the new Chiefs actually hold a practice, play a game, or even play a full season before you declare Andy Reid to be 7 years past his prime and you give up on the Chiefs altogether? It's fine to be a fan and to examine and criticize what the team is doing, but there's a hell of a lot of people on this forum who aren't nearly as smart as they think they are.

Thank God we at least don't have to read all of the pillowbiter postings about the Chocolate Penii any more.
1. Nothing I said has anything to do with Geno Smith.

2. This is why I say Andy Reid is probably 7 years past his prime (and I should have said 8):

2000 11-5
2001 11-5 conference championship
2002 12-4 conference championship
2003 12-4 conference championship
2004 13-3 - superbowl - fairly clear line of demarcation
2005 6-10
2006 10-6
2007 8-8
2008 9-6-1 conference championship
2009 11-5
2010 10-6
2011 8-8 - with perhaps the most talented roster in the NFL
2012 4-12 - see above

I am not saying he will fail here. I have no idea what he will do here. What I am saying is that, based on the last 8 years, I was not excited about the hire. This is not Andy Reid circa 2004, winning 12 or 13 games a year and fielding a truly contending team. This is Andy Reid, 66-61-1 since 2005. And the last two years in Philadelphia may be among of the worst seasons I've ever seen from a roster that loaded. It's even worse than the Chargers annual woes. So that's what I mean by "past his prime". And I don't think it's an unfair statement to make.

As far as "giving up on the Chiefs", well, I wouldn't be here if that was the case.

Best draft ever was when the Jags took Gabbert.

can anyone show me this extension Alex Smith has signed? Anyone?
We are all geared to expect the organization to protect the QB even if it hurts the team. Even though its a different regime, I do it as well. In the back of my mind I see them protecting Alex even though what Pioli did has no impact on the current situation. Hopefully they put Alex to the test and if he doesn't work out they aren't afraid to see it.
