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.”

Here's a few more: Doomy3 owns your ass.

Oh, and I'll add a few more: You're definitely one of the dumbest ****ing people on Chiefsplanet. You've been banned, you've had multiple user names and you have exactly ZERO honor for welching on a bet.

You're MethHeadHootie.

The jury is out on Geno Smith.

Acting as if his ball washers have been proven wrong is intellectually dishonest...to use your overused term, Mister Dane Homer.

Bullshit.

You and your band of homoerotic dumb****s blasted this site and every single person that wasn't in love with Geno Smith.

I told each and every one of you morons that he was not a first round pick nor was even remotely worth the first overall pick. For that, I was verbally abused for months on end.

Well guess what, Mother****ers: Who was right and who was wrong?

Geno was absolutely worth a first round pick and it will be proven in time.

You don't get to claim victory.

I'll leave the glue sniffing and eating to you.

Although it's clearly obvious that you've had more than your quota.

If Geno Smith had been taken in the top three, you'd STILL be shitting all over this site.

As I stated, he was NOT worthy of a first round selection and he was DEFINITELY not worthy of 1.1.

The NFL unanimously agree with ME, not you.

This is a fight you cannot win.

I honestly think that if this year, Alex Smith got us to an OT loss in the Championship game from the SB like he did in 2011, than people on here would still hate him.

So Geno didn't go in the first? So what? I think the point you're missing is that he was seen by many on this board as a worthy pick for developmental purposes. You, however, are one of those idiots who believes that a first round QB MUST START IMMMEDIATELY(HERP-HERP-HERP!).

Oh well. The Chiefs agree with you. And, seeing as how the Chiefs are just one giant institution of FAIL(But you can go ahead and call it "bad luck" or "snakebitten", or some other such dumbassed excuse), I'd take my "victory" with a broader perspective.

If that's at all possible for you, Mr. "I'M SOOOO ABUSED BY CHIEFSPLANET" McDouche.

When Geno Smith is a badass QB for the NY Jets and we're arguing over whether Alex Smith can ever win a playoff game for this team, I win.
