Yep, Alex Smith is here to stay.

Hard to swallow.


What a horrible draft. Glad I didn't stick around for the whole thing. I would have wasted valuable time. Reid is a complete moron. Never go all in on a guy like Alex Smith. Your offseason is a complete joke.

That's all

This place will be lit on fire if Alex bombs his first game and throws 3 INTs. Need that GIF of the guy catching on fire and falling out of the window

Not predicting awesomeness, but I'll wager there will be several, huh, Smith is better than I thoughts, on here. I'm saying this, again, not because i think he's gonna be incredible, but if people really think he's Cassel II, they're going to be pleasantly surprised.

I'm also basing this on the reaction several had when his highlight video was posted. It was like all the Cassel part 2 people had never seen him play, at least not recently.

LOL None of this surprises me - Look Andy Reid got out coached a lot last season. We shouldn't be excited by his name alone. We're basically 6-10 screwed. So if you're cool with ten losses then this new regime is for you.

So Reid is only good enough for 4 more wins than Crennel?

I grew up in Utah and have seen articles in the past stating that he wasn't. I'm not a Mormon either. I'm new here so I'm not allowed to post links and don't want to go around the rule by adding spaces or anything to hide them. Look it up, it's out there.
He most certainly is a Mormon

Andy Reid is a piss poor game day coach, who is also over rated as a QB guru.

So, with Alex Smith, a game manager that can't exel in the system that Reid likes to run, with more downfield passing than a conventional west coast system, then it;s very likely that this team can only win 4 more games with Reid instead f Crennel.

I actually don't believe they win more than 5 games, unless Reid goes more conventional west coast.

This isn't rocket science. Reid/Dorsey believe in him.
Yes, I think it's possible. Dorsey has an interview where he says pretty directly that he doesn't throw the best deep ball and has a strength mostly on the short and short-intermediate stuff. I don't think Dorsey is clueless about his value, and we all know Reid likes to go vertical.

I think it's absolutely possible that the Chiefs had a directive by Clark Hunt that they need to start winning to get fans excited about the team again. I will give it a year or two to see where this goes. What I do feel pretty sure about is that Reid isn't going to play the game of protecting Alex Smith with his offense. Smith will have to pass a lot so he's not going to skate by with a conservative approach.

Reid is absolutely a QB guru. Unquestionably, he can coach up QBs. The question is if he can evaluate them. This is a guy who has won with Jeff Garcia, AJ Feeley, and the Detmers. I'm not a fan of Alex Smith, but he's better than those guys.

The tea leaves say that Reid will go more to a spread. Maybe that's the rationale behind Chase Daniel -- I'm not crazy about this move either, but to fork over that kind of contract, there's something they're seeing that maybe we're missing.

If Smith sucks next year, he will not be here for a long time. Smith is a guy who is either going to prove to be a great fit for what Reid wants to run, or he is a guy who we will look to replace in a couple of years. And if he is a great fit and plays great, he can stay.

IMO the entire Smith trade had more to do with them not trusting any QB in this draft to be ready to win anytime soon than it had to do with Smith being the unquestioned QB for the next four years like Cassel.

We shall see. They may have been completely wrong on This QB class, but if any of those QBs never ends up being any better than Smith, then we would need to replace them in a few years anyway. Smith is still young enough that if he works out, you've got a Trent Green type for 4-5 years. If he is mediocre, you've at least got a bridge QB and are still able to look for a QB in next years draft to develop. If he completely sucks, you dump him. It would be a mistake for the Chiefs to talk extension before he plays a year here, unless it is a purely salary cap move that doesn't prevent you from dumping him if he sucks...

URBAN MEYER on Alex Smith:
In a question and answer session with The Sacramento Bee, Meyer, now a college football analyst at ESPN, revisited his 2005 comments and spoke about Smith's resurgence.

Why do things seem to be different this year with Smith?

"I follow the NFL a lot with Alex, Tim [Tebow] and other players. It's amazing to me in the NFL that if you're on a really bad team — bad offense, bad defense, bad kicking game — then it's the quarterback's fault.

"Alex was like my son. I was real close to Alex. I watched coordinator after coordinator come out of there. The defense was ranked near the bottom every year. It's a really bad team. And all of a sudden, it's, 'Well, Alex can't play.' And I'm thinking, 'What are you talking about? Alex certainly can play.' It's the same thing with Tim.

"So quarterbacks, they get far too much credit and far too much blame. The best thing about Alex right now — he's on a really good team with a really good coaching staff, and he's a member of a team. I give so much credit to that. I don't know the whole situation, but they're playing really good football."

Did he ever express frustration to you after leaving Utah?

"Oh, I spoke with him and with his mom and dad — we're really close. And, yeah, he was frustrated. You know, he's a perfectionist. He's a guy that grasps things so fast. He wants to learn and he's a relentless worker. So he was very frustrated. He was used to winning. He did it in high school. He had a great high school program.

"Then he goes to college and won a lot of games. The biggest frustration was losing. He really liked Norv Turner. When Norv Turner was there it was like a second life for him. And then Norv left to be a head coach and it just devastated him [Smith]. But he always stayed positive. He always wanted the best for San Francisco."

Did he or his family talk to you about the decision to remain in San Francisco after the 2010 season?

"A little bit. He had really liked Mike Singletary. He was a loyal person. That's the way he was raised. He really wanted to see it through. The San Francisco 49ers gave him a lot by making him the first pick."

You said he grasps things so fast. Doesn't that run counter to what you said about him in 2005 about him being "nonfunctional"?

"Mentally, he's on a different plane. He graduated from college in two years. I've always said he has like a photographic memory when we game-planned with him. But he went through so many different coordinators in San Francisco that he would try to — I don't want to say overanalyze it — but it was like € he made the comment to me going into his sophomore year that, 'I fully grasp everything in the system.'

"My comment, when they first drafted him in San Francisco, is that he wants to know every little thing about quarterback. He's a perfectionist. He wants to know why, what everyone's doing on the field. And if everything kept changing on him, it would be very slow. That's probably what's happening now without knowing the whole story. From what I understand, he's very comfortable with the system."

Knowing what you know about Jim Harbaugh, do you think he and Smith are a good pairing?

"One thing about Alex — he's a tough guy. We ran him a lot. We would always start the game, when I was coaching Alex, he would want to run off-tackle power with him carrying the ball. And he would just drop his pads and get in there. How many quarterbacks do you know who do that?

"Jim Harbaugh's that kind of coach. He wants tough guys. So that made perfect sense."

He also went on to say that Alex throws the best deep ball of any QB he has ever coached.
