Jaworski rates Chiefs QB at No. 20 among NFL starters

Jaworski rates Chiefs QB at No. 20 among NFL starters

The Kansas City Star
Former NFL quarterback-turned-broadcaster Ron Jaworski ranks new Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith No. 20 among the NFL's 32 starting quarterbacks.

That's according to Jaworski's ratings on ESPN's MediaZone site, transcribed from his three-minute daily segments dubbed "Jaws' QB Countdown" on SportsCenter and NFL Live.

Smith, of course, was acquired in a trade from San Francisco this offseason, and has yet to throw a pass in Kansas City (aside from OTAs, that is).

Here are some excerpts from Jaworski's evaluation of Smith:

“A year ago, Smith was coming off his best season in the NFL, having led the 49ers to the NFC Championship. This year, he’s the starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. It was a great move by (Chiefs coach) Andy Reid to acquire Smith.

“The defining element of Smith’s play is efficiency. He executes the offense the way it’s designed, and he makes very few mistakes. Last season – for the second year in a row – he was exceptional on first down. In 2012 he led the NFL in first-down passing, with a quarterback rating of 119. Much of it came off play-action, or in the case of the 49ers, hard run-action out of base personnel. There was no better play-action quarterback last season than Smith. He had a quarterback rating of over 132.

“Smith has been outstanding out of multiple tight end personnel over the last couple of seasons. No quarterback has thrown the ball more with three tight ends on the field. You don’t see that very often in today’s NFL.

“This play was beautifully designed with all three tight ends to the same side. First, look at the impact of the run-action on the two linebackers and the safety. This was hard run-action. Then you see that Delanie Walker’s vertical route occupied the corner. That left Vernon Davis matched on a safety, a safety that initially reacted to run. He had no chance on Davis’ wheel route.

“One area Smith improved in 2012 was in the pre-snap phase of the game. He was much better at the line of scrimmage checking and audibling.

“It will be interesting to see what Andy Reid does in Kansas City. Don’t be surprised if he turns Smith loose a little bit and features an up-tempo offense with an emphasis on quick throws. Remember, Alex Smith played for Urban Meyer at Utah.”

Other QB's that Jaworski has analyzed so far:

No. 32 Matt Flynn

No. 31 Jake Locker

No. 30 Kevin Kolb

No. 29 Chad Henne

No. 28 Mark Sanchez

No. 27 Christian Ponder

No. 26 Brandon Weeden

No. 25 Michael Vick

No. 24 Ryan Tannehill

No. 23 Carson Palmer

No. 22 Sam Bradford

No. 21 Josh Freeman

Jaws had Cassel at 22 last year. So according to Jaws, we gave up a 2nd and a 3rd that could become a 2nd to move up 2 spots.

New England and Baltimore only turned it over 16 times. Houston only 17.

The 5 teams with the fewest turnovers in the NFC all made the postseason as did the best 4 in the AFC.

The 7 best teams in + - in the NFC all had winning records, so did the Top 4 in the AFC.

Yeah guys taking care of the ball still matters quite a bit.

So Cassel and Quinn are supposed to be responsible for turnovers they didn't commit? Smith had 9 turnovers in 8 games last season. Add his 18 for a full season to the 10 fumbles by the Chiefs non-QBs last season.

28 turnovers would have been 24th in the NFL last season. Sounds like 11 wins to me!

Doesn't work that way dumbass. The focus of this offseason will be ball security. You can bank that on your invisiballs.

In 2010 the Chiefs only had 14 turnovers as a team, so all the extra turnovers may be a fraud anyway.

No, the focus of this offseason so far has been getting Alex to be aggressive with the ball. That's basically the opposite.

Oh, for ****'s sake. You can be aggressive with the ball, while still being smart and picking teams apart with the short passing game. See Brady, Tom and Brees, Drew.

Could be that these ranking are meaningless.

Yeah, Alex wasn't utilizing the short game enough. That was the problem.

By the way, Brady threw 84 passes of 20+ yards. Brees, 80.

Smith threw 19.

They really are. They are for lil kids, basically.

There are 5-6 excellent QBs (that still have flaws, but get overhyped) stick around into the mid-high 90's +)

There are over a dozen good QBs (that hover in the mid-low 90's/upper 80's, yet have their occasionally abysmal games)

And then, there are the rest of either unproven, lucky to get into the 80's, flawed but occasionally decent, barely clinging to a job, backups at best and lucky to be a #2.

Way to miss the point. There is a difference between reckless and aggressive with the ball. Yeah, he's going to throw the ball downfield more, doesn't mean that it will lead to more turnovers. Damn, you are a horrible poster.
