Alex Smith's Accuracy Sparks Chiefs Practice

aaKansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith wowed the crowd with pinpoint throws

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith didn't care that the skies were again overcast during practice on Monday; likely because his accurate throws would've outshined the sun, had it made an appearance.

Smith was on-point, nearly perfect, unofficially completing 17 of 20 passes for three TDs during the roughly two-and-a-half hour practice.

"It’s a reflection of the group,” Smith said. “O-line was great today; it starts with them. They did a good job communicating, especially in the blitz period, third down, everybody was on the same page and then there were guys making plays outside. We got off to a good start but really, I think the spark came from the guys up-front."

Among the many pass-catchers Smith connected with on Monday, Chiefs TE Anthony Fasano continues to play at a very-high level. Smith threw to Fasano three-straight times, late in practice, including one TD.

"He's such a dependable guy, so reliable," Smith said of Fasano. "He has such a great knowledge of the game, a great feel for it, defenses and how they’re playing him and he uses his body so well. He continues to make tough catches. He’s what you’re looking for in a TE, that reliable guy that continues to be open, time after time."

Another of Smith's targets was Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe, whose best catch on Monday was a one-handed grab in 7-on-7s.

"That’s just him making me look good," Smith said. "There’s not much to it. I threw it up there and let him do the rest."

Bowe described the play from a different perspective.

"No, man," Bowe said of Smith's pass. "He put the ball right on the outside; he saw the inside leverage, and our job is to catch the ball; it happened to be a one-handed catch, but it was a great pass by Alex."



Bowe also shared how he's feeling just days away from the team's first preseason game of the year.

"I’m feeling good,” Bowe said. "We’re going against the best every day at practice, so when we get to the games, we will be ready."

Following Smith, Chiefs QB Chase Daniel stepped in Monday and continues to move the ball effectively, highlighted by his completion to a determined Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki on a third-down play in the red zone.

"Chase did a great job of getting the ball out quick," Moeaki said. "I was just trying to get the ball vertical and it was a third-down play, so getting the first down in the red zone, that’s huge. We as a TE group feel that’s where our number should be called; we’re just trying to help the team score."

Later in 11-on-11s, Chiefs QB Ricky Stanzi closed out the drill with a beauty of a throw for a TD to Chiefs rookie WR Frankie Hammond Jr.

"It was a great throw by Ricky,” Hammond Jr. said. "I kind of pinned the guy inside and he just made a great throw and I went up and got it."

Like the other Chiefs rookies, Hammond Jr. is ready and waiting for his opportunity to shine on Friday night.

"Definitely,” Hammond Jr said. "It’s just ‘lay it out all on the table’; you’ll only get so many opportunities in these preseason games, so when we get out there, we have to make the most of them and go out there and play hard."

The team played hard yet again today, which caught the eye of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.

"Good work today," coach Reid said.

"This is our fifth day in a row of full contact and going. This is our longest stretch; we’ll have another day tomorrow. So, the guys pushed through a big red zone day today, big 3RD-and-long day today. I thought they traded back and forth, challenging each other and working hard.”



Part of the hard work paid off for the defense in 11-on-11s, when Chiefs DB Otha Foster III was in the right place at the right time for his pick-six INT.

"I was playing free," Foster III said. "The guy dragged across and the QB threw it to him, bounced off his shoulder and landed in my hands. We were going full contact, all the way, tackling to the ground and that’s why I ran it all the way back."

Foster hopes to carry the defensive momentum with him into Friday's road game against the Saints.

"I feel good about that because it’s close to my hometown in Louisiana," he said. "I’m going to have a lot of family there and they love the Saints, except when I’m playing; they’ll be on my side (on) Friday.”

The Chiefs return to the practice field tomorrow, before a day off on Wednesday, travel day to New Orleans on Thursday and then, the real fun begins Friday night at 7:00 PM CDT, from the Mercedes-Benz

newsflash: hes injury prone and should be the biggest concern. He is one hit away from having any chance of a winning season go down the toilet. His shoulder is flimsy and his skull is mashed potatoes. He cant take another hit to either and get by.

The fact that he takes a lot of hits/sacks is why you should be concerned with the injuries. He likes holding the ball cause he doesnt want to give up the interception, but the double edged sword is hes giving up is body and prone to getting hurt in the process.

You cant argue these two facts about him. These are the only knocks against him and they are big ones, whether you love him or hate him that's our QB.
I dislike the trade for Smith, but I think too much is made of the shoulder by others that dislike the trade to justify their position.
He injured the shoulder, came back too soon and re-injured it before it had fully healed from the the original injury.

After fully healing, there has been no further issue.

As for the concussions and sacks, those legitimate concerns.

However, those concerns should be alleviated to some extent by Reid's offensive philosophy, which is predicated on getting the ball out quickly.

I would not be the least bit surprisexd to see Smith play the full 16 game schedule, and to see him exceed all of his previous season numbers in yards and TTs.

My concern is that he is not a guy that can lead his team to a SB.

At some point the QB has to make plays againsr superior defenseszin the playoffs,and I don't see a guy with the confidence to make those plays in Alex Smith, and at the end of the day, that confidence is what separates Alex Smith from the Eli Mannings and Joe Flaccos of the world.

I just don't believe you give up 2 high draft picks, whether it's a 2 and a 3 or 2 2nds, for that guy.

There's some argument to the injury bug with Alex. Now is that a function of the number of hits he takes? Dunno. 2012 he was injured twice. Everyone knows the concussion that lead to his replacement, but he also injured his throwing hand against the bills. The following two games he played badly...Giants and Seattle. When he said it healed, it was against AZ and he went 18 for 19 in that game.

Personally, I don't think it's THAT big of a deal...but I can't deny it could be a concern.

meh, this offense should be able to keep AS upright. it's designed for a lot of movement with QB rollouts and quick passing. the OL is mobile as hell too, so this should be a good match.

If he can't stay healthy all season here, then ya -- he's injury prone.

I don't know what he means, but Hulce was nominated and lost best actor to Abraham.

When you factor in the difference in the games. One being they play the ravens, you play the browns, and the other being you play the Bills, and they play the Patriots, that's two games they can lose, and that's two games you SHOULD win, then you factor in that the Chiefs should be much better than they were last year, while it appears the Raiders, and Chargers are worse, that further separates the schedule.

Its not close....It could be the difference in the division...... A huge part of the Broncos weak schedule is playing twice against the Chiefs. We both know, that the Chiefs are clearly the second best team in the Afc west. Which actually makes the Broncos schedule tougher.....

Stop it. You are being naughty.

The AFC north is so competitive, that a key injury here or there could really destroy any one of those teams.

I believe that the Broncos are far overrated. They are beloved because they got Wes Welker, but their defense is older, they lost dummerville, cut joe mays, and their secondary is suck city and Champ Bailey is 10000 years old. I have no idea how they are going to stop anyone. Especially if Von Miller misses the first four games, and when he comes back, you just double him, and then what do you have to worry about?

NOTHING.
Joe Mays? Losing the guy that got benched after 4 games is why our defense will be bad this year?

Also, older? There are 2 starters over 27 on Denver's defense.

You also don't have Dj Williams.

your secondary is BAD, and your best player in your secondary is OLD, and other than Von Miller, NO BODY is impressive on your defense, and hes going to miss the first four games of the season.......


bad defense, is bad.......
