Alex Smith to Chiefs?

2011 NFL Trade Rumors Alex Smith to Chiefs?

August 18, 2011 08:10 PM EDT

comments: 1

Alex Smith has been given several opportunities to win over the front office and fans of the San Francisco 49ers, but the former NFL first-round draft pick has been inconsistent throughout his career, and it could be time for a change in scenery.

The 49ers drafted a quarterback for their future and now are looking to bring in a veteran quarterback to lead the team for a year and let Colin Kaepernick learn the ropes from someone other than Smith.

The latest trade rumor has Smith being sent to the Kansas City Chiefs in a deal that will give Smith a fresh start, and the Chiefs badly needed backup to Matt Cassel. Kansas City now has just rookie fifth-round draft choice Ricky Stanzi as the teams backup, and an injury to Cassel could be harmful to the team's success in the upcoming NFL season.

The good news for Chiefs fans is that Smith would be a cheap acquisition, and it would give the team some much-needed insurance at the quarterback position. If San Francisco brings in a veteran in the next week or two, look for Smith to become a member of a different team before the season begins.

I do like the arm strength and the accuracy he has displayed when he's gotten the chance to set up and throw, and I liked the moxie he showed when under pressure and getting that flip out to Battle last week.

I'd like to see how he fares with some protection.

I know this.

His mechanics are miles ahead of Cassel's.
thanks.

Pretty much what Ive seen so far, just wanted to make sure Ive been realistic.

That was not Green.
We're talking Eddie Kennison as our number one wide receiver. I'd say Green made those around him alot better. Dante Hall wasn't squat before or after Green QBing for him. I think Green is one of the better QBs in the accuracy department, especially considering previous Chiefs QBs.

Green's problem was a short-lived career, due to injury. Would I build my team around him? Probably not, but if he could have given one team 12 years plus, his skillset was franchisesque. We had a juggernaut offense and Green played a huge role in that. I think he teeters on being a franchise QB. Nobody on our roster even came close to unseating him.

Food for thought.

I liked Green too, he was one of my favorite qbs of all time, great leader. Oh do I miss the days of him behind center, one thing is for sure, Cassel can never be what Green was.

Green made Kennison look better because the O-Line made Green look better.

Without that O-Line, Green was not a guy that could carry a team, and late game situations, I had no faith in Green to make plays.
