Teicher:Prodded by Andy Reid, Chiefs QB Alex Smith learning to be more aggressive

Prodded by Andy Reid, Chiefs QB Alex Smith learning to be more aggressive
By ADAM TEICHER
The Kansas City Star
One of the qualities the Chiefs like in new quarterback Alex Smith is his recent history with few turnovers. Smith threw just 10 interceptions in his last 25 games for the San Francisco 49ers, a stat that looks extremely pretty in Kansas City after Chiefs quarterbacks committed 27 turnovers last season.

Smith’s low turnover rate was due at least in part by his reluctance to throw the ball down the field. He was referred to by frustrated 49ers fans as Captain Checkdown for his habit of throwing shorter patterns to receivers for shorter gains.

Smith is in the process of being reprogrammed by Andy Reid, his new coach. Reid doesn’t want to turn Smith into a turnover machine but wants him to be more aggressive, particularly during offseason practice.

“You want to get a feel for the offense now, particularly when you’re new at it (and) if there are close throws, challenge it, see what you can get away with,” Reid said. “If it ends up being an interception, OK, it’s an interception. You learn from it. These are smart guys so they learn from it and once they get into the season, they’re not experimenting with it on game day and they know what they can get away with and know what they can’t.

“It’s a new offense. I would tell any quarterback that comes in new that that’s what you need to do. I’ve told them all that. Go ahead and take your shots and see what you can get away with, within reason. But if it’s a close throw, there are going to be a few of those in the National Football League on game day so you need to know what you can get away with on each route.”

Smith and the other Chiefs quarterbacks were rewarded with several long completions in Wednesday’s practice. Smith had three such plays, including two to Jon Baldwin, while Tyler Bray and Ricky Stanzi had one apiece.

Wednesday’s barrage of big passing plays isn’t necessarily an indication the deep ball is back in the Chiefs’ offense. But since such plays have been scarce for the Chiefs in each of the past two seasons, they’re taking it as an encouraging sign.

“We’re just kind of continuing to press to see what we can do … finding out what we’re capable of,” Smith said. “You’ve got to find that out at some point. This is what the practice field is for.”

Smith was the NFL’s highest-rated passer last season before he was injured, missed a start and then replaced by Colin Kaepernick as San Francisco’s starting quarterback. Smith was completing more than 70 percent of his passes, a high rate, and had just five interceptions.

Still, he had just 30 touchdown passes in his final 25 starts for the 49ers. While that’s a good number as a ratio with his 10 interceptions, it still represents a shortage of big plays.

Smith won’t turn into a mad bomber overnight, if he ever does.

“You want to stay aggressive,” Smith said. “But in the end I’m always trying to make the right read and throw where the defense is telling me to throw. You don’t come out here and predetermine anything, like ‘Oh, I’m going to chuck it deep on this play.’ I’m constantly trying to just trust my eyes and what I’m seeing out there, trust my reads and what I’ve prepared for and then come out here and throw good balls.”

For his part, Reid might be OK with that. But for now, when an interception costs the Chiefs nothing, he would prefer Smith be more of a gambler.

“Everybody is all on board (with Smith),” Reid said. “He’s a good football player. He’s showing that (along with) good leadership. I’m asking him to do a ton of things. He’s handling it. We’ve had an interception here or there but that’s all part of this thing. You’ve got to find out about the offense and you can’t do it with your hands in your pocket. You’ve got to go out and try things and experiment. That’s what he’s doing now.

“It’s just good stuff. He’s staying aggressive with the ball, and I appreciate that.”

The final offseason practice is today. The Chiefs won’t get together again as a group until training camp begins in July at Missouri Western State University.

Smith indicated he may try to throw to some Chiefs receivers during their downtime in an effort to stay sharp.

“We’re heads and shoulder above where we were a couple of months ago,” he said. “But that’s a never-ending thing. I don’t think it’s something like, ‘We’ve got a good feel for each other so we don’t need to work anymore.’ You’re constantly working at it. This is our job, this is our craft. Every single day, it’s coming out here and pushing to get better.”

Dane and Alex Smith Fan will be eating shit after the year is over. I can't wait until Succop sets the record for most points in a season, which was previously set by David Akers of the 49ers, and who was quarterbacking the team during that year?

I wanna make a bet with Clay.

Alex Smith will score 25 TD's this year, barring injury.

You down?

While that is true, it also shows that his short and midrange accuracy as well as his command of the offense were OFF THE CHARTS good to get that ypa while not consistently chucking it deep to achieve that stat.

No. Turds can hit 25 TDs. Especially athletic turds who can run scores in. It's a possibility.

John Dorsey is not Carl Peterson or Scott Pioli.
Andy Reid is not Romeo Crennel, Todd Haley, Herm Edwards, Gunther Cunningham, Dick Vermiel or Marty Shottenheimer.
Geno Smith is not Andrew Luck.
Alex Smith is not Matt Cassel.

To some, none of this registers.

No running TD's. All have to be passes.

2nd down: Alignment: gun pats right(bunch). Personnel : Detroit (1back, 2te, 2wr). Playcall: x slant, y corner z diagonal.

3rd down: alignment: 9 slot tight, FAT(motion by crabs out of backfield) Playcall: x fade, and then a spacing concept in which the y(Davis) runs a corner and the z runs a desigjed pick to free crabs running the diagonal.

4th down: Alignment: pistol 1 out slot Playcall: sticks concepts with z fade.


Simpathy, you powerful ****ers, this is on a phone and not including coverages. As to the belief they ran the same play repeatedly, both the 2nd and 3rd down calls feature similar concepts.

Oh well in that case, I accept. Alex Smith doesn't have a prayer of throwing 25 TDs.

My position is clear? What is my position?

I've been debunking your nonsense. Anyone with a brain that knows anything about football (which is rare on Chiefsplanet these days) can see right through the false narrative you've created.

For the record, I've never endorsed the Alex Smith trade although I think he was the best available QB this off season. I've never stated that Alex Smith will be a Top 15 QB nor have I stated that he will win a playoff game.

The only definitely statement I've made is that he is NOT Matt Cassel. That and the fact that you have created a narrative based on PFF stats only, pimped it, massaged it and convinced the dummies like SDH that it's true.

It's not.

You must be related to SDH because you're just as clueless.

You took a position that Alex Smith is better than the QB he actually is. You scoff at the evidence I present, because you are a homer and want to believe in this QB. No other reason to treat these facts with such disdain.

Alrighty, but on one condition. Alex Smith gets hurt and all bets are off.
