Teicher:On first play at camp, Chiefs show their new look

On first play at camp, Chiefs show their new look
By ADAM TEICHER
The Kansas City Star
Andy Reid delivered a not-so-subtle message Friday with the first play at Chiefs training camp. He had quarterback Alex Smith heave a pass deep down the middle that was hauled in for a touchdown by wide receiver Dexter McCluster.

The play served notice that after two seasons with a dormant passing attack, the Chiefs intend to revive it in a big way.

“I wasn’t ready for that,” Smith said. “I came up and I got a good look for it. Crowd pleaser.”

Much more needs to happen before the passing game can be called successful. But the intent is obviously there. Smith completed another deep pass to McCluster a few plays later.

As much as Reid enjoyed the big plays, he liked the consistency of the passing game. Smith, who completed 70 percent of his passes for the 49ers last season, went several plays into practice before throwing his first incompletion.

“There weren’t a lot of balls on the ground, and it looked like the defense had people covered,” Reid said. “They were in position.”

The trade for Smith was the biggest of the offseason moves aimed at revitalizing a sluggish offense. Smith, the first pick in the 2005 draft and San Francisco’s long-time starter, is used to such pressure.

“I’m much better equipped to handle it now,” Smith said. “When you’re a young guy and coming in and playing early, I dwelled on (negative things) too much. I let it affect my play too much. I tried to please everybody.

“I’m going to play my game. I’m going to try to work as hard as I can to get as good as I can and try to reach my potential and win a bunch of games. That’s the goal. I’m not worried about a bunch of other things.”

Smith received another peek at the expectations waiting for him at the end of practice, when a fan called to him asking Smith to be the Chiefs’ savior.

“That’s a strong word,” Smith said. “That’s a great example. When I was younger, I would have taken that literally. I tried to make every single throw and I tried to prove to everybody on every single play that, yeah, I could do this.”

That McCluster was on the receiving end of Smith’s long passes was another bonus for the Chiefs. They practiced without their most accomplished receiver, Dwayne Bowe, who is on the non-football injury list with a viral condition.

Bowe may return to practice as soon as Saturday. But no matter when he plays, the Chiefs are still in search of a consistent threat to go along with him. The diminutive McCluster has long tantalized the Chiefs with his big-play ability, but he has delivered precious few such plays since arriving as a rookie in 2010.

He bounced from receiver to running back and again to receiver, never seeming to find a comfortable spot. While it’s far too early to call him a changed player in Reid’s offense, it’s a start.

“It’s always good to start a first practice … with a big one,” McCluster said. “I’m happy I held on to the ball.”

Reid’s arrival could rescue McCluster’s career, which stalled last season under coach Romeo Crennel. Reid, then coaching the Philadelphia Eagles, was intrigued by McCluster when he was available in the 2010 draft.

The Chiefs got to him first, but Reid began making plans for McCluster shortly after arriving in Kansas City in January.

“He gives you a little flexibility,” Reid said. “You can move him around a Iittle. We’ll use him here and there.”

During offseason practice and again on Friday, McCluster lined up in a variety of spots.

“I don’t know where he couldn’t line up, to be honest, as far as skill positions go,” Smith said. “He’s got that many tools in the belt.”

Another offensive player the Chiefs are counting on is rookie running back Knile Davis. The Chiefs hope he can be turned into a kickoff return specialist, even though he never returned a kick during a game in college at Arkansas.

That process got off to a rough start Friday when Davis, who was a frequent fumbler in college, dropped a kickoff.

“We’ll get that fixed,” Reid said.

No its facts. Thinking it will be any different would be hypothetical dude.

Facts are facts and by almost any measure Alex Smith is on par with Cassel in terms of production. He averages less than 200 yards a game.

He's been in the league eight years, make all the excuses you want but he's been middle of the pack.

I never said he wasn't. But it is awful hard to put up stellar numbers, when you hand the ball off more than you throw.

A prime example of that. Troy Aikman. Hes a hall of fame qb, who spent his career, handing off to Emmitt Smith. Now, obviously, I am not saying Alex Smith is as good as Troy, hes not, troy might of been the most accurate passer in the history of the NFL. What I am saying is, that your scheme, and coaching, sometimes dictates your stats. And it is why, I have never said that Alex is going to succeed or fail here, because I don't know. I don't know if he can handle passing more, I also don't know if Andy Reid will use him that way. So yes. To speculate on how playing for a different style of coach, and assuming that the results are going to be the same. Is useless.


COMPLETELY, USELESS.

Who? Again, you asked me who said this season was a failure? Who told you HOW to feel.

Or did they say, Alex is a nice guy, wont turn the ball over, will work hard.

Isnt great, but he isn't bad. Those sound like way more of the things that 49ers fans said. Myself included, and im the biggest ****ing alex smith homer in the world. I already ordered my Alex Smith Chiefs jersey.

And I wont tell you he is a franchise saving qb, and is at best a stop gap.

no one ever said alex smith was great, and that you should be thrilled to have him.

Sorry I dont see the difference.

Now if you think its a possibility, then you have hope.

Many people do not believe it is remotely possible.

I think its a possibility this year.

Granted we haven't even seen a preseason game yet.
Thinking he won't win a playoff game isn't calling the season a failure already. its being realistic. He won one in San Francisco with a really good team. In eight years. One.

so if you think we can win a playoff game this season do you call this season a success already? Its the same thing.

LOL at not including Alice Smiff being picked over Aaron Rodgers as an example of overreaching.

Oh, wait. I'm supposed to ignore the first 5 and just focus the the last two - which by sheer coincidence are the same years his organization was dying to get rid of him.

Yawn. Pats trolls. Niner trolls. Rinse. Repeat.
uh, dying to get rid of him? Jim Harbaugh gave him his playbook, without a contract with the team, to teach it to the rest of the team.

Again, your lies don't work here junior. Just like I don't try to tell you about your Chiefs, you sure as hell will never be able to tell a lie about my niners. Ill call your punk ass on it every time.

Yep. I'm fully expecting to start driving the ball 325 yards now that my coach has complete confidence in me, and has given me complete control.

My old coach told me I should only drive the ball 250. Same with the coach before that. And the coach before that.

Yep, I'm sure coaching has been the problem.

See you at Q-School!
