This^.....

Reminds me of the guy who said Drew Brees sucked for his first 5-6 years....

I hate the Raiders and Chefs, but I don't like seeing them stoop to Alex Smith and Matt Flynn. Pretty pathetic really.

Don't agree. Reid will build up Alex Smith to become as good as Alex Smith could possibly be. Granted, that will never be anywhere near a Peyton Manning, but Reid has a pretty solid track record with QBs.I read some time ago that Brett Favre credits Reid for turning around his career.

Reid scares me in this division. The Raiders? Meh.

All Reid has done for most of his coaching career is produce choke artist qbs that play average or just above and show their true colors come playoffs. Game managers. Granted hes put together some real good teams with a lot of talent around. I think its more about the teams he builds up on both sides of the ball. He isn't bad with qbs, and I'm sure Smith will fit right in managing the game for him. The one guy I think of having a solid track record with qbs is Shanny. He could almost make any qb look great.

If there is one team in the West that is a threat, its definitely the Chefs.

I also love what Elway did last year, Basically (hopefully) solving the QB position now and for down the road.
Also I bet they can see right now if Oswieller will be any good. Broncos probably already have a good idea if he can be a good starter someday.

I also disagree Reid is washed up. He can coach up good offense and i think Chiefs will be way better this yr. Better not sleep on them they have a talented duo in Charles and Bowe and high enough picks they could get 2 starters out of the draft easy.

I'll say this ... few if any observers understood what a deeply flawed player/person McNabb was until he was without Andy Reid. In fact, there were some who waxed poetic about McNabb's "place in history." You don't hear that talk any more these days.

WTF is wrong with your assumption he is a good qb ? other than your wrong............The Niners added talent around the guy and then and only then he got better..................

Since your such a smartass go look up how many games he played and how many he rode the bench before the last two years ? He has been benched multiple times.

**** no I didn't remeber he was drafted by the Niners cause I don't give a chit about them..............

You a-holes thinking he will play in KC like he did in SF without the same talent are clueless.

If your gonna deny the talent went up dramatically in SF and thats when Alex Smith got better but that wasn't why then you truly are drunk or stupid or both.

He doesn't have the support cast in KC,,,,,dumbass


The difference in the offences is ALEX SMITH BECAME A GAME MANAGER.....UNDER Harbough............

**** you even Trent Dilfer looked servicable once upon a time...........lets here your stupid excuses for him.

Smith is a game manager on a good football team and sucks without a high level of talent around him .

Unless you want to deny recent history go F yourself............cause these are the facts.

I saw the Chiefs are taking a look at Geno Smith today. There had also been rumors earlier Oakland liked him.

Now consider this: Both Alex Smith (KC) and Matt Flynn (Oak) are coming off years where they were presumed starters who were replace by younger, much more athletic QBs. If either KC or Oakland pick up Smith that would have to immediately rattle Smith / Flynn.

Stop, just stop. You clearly have no knowledge on Alex Smith aside from what you just hastily googled. Hence, you have no real knowledge with which to base an opinion.

Run along now.

What a horrible year to have the #1 pick if you need a QB. Geno Smith doesn't impress Reid and Reid turned McNabb into a franchise QB.

I'm a Geno Smith supporter ... he looks like a tall Russell Wilson to me. Both are hard-working, nose-to-the-grindstone guys. Like Wilson, Smith put up sick completion % and TD-Int numbers in college. And just like Wilson, Smith made a big jump up in conferences his senior year - from Big East to Big XII. Despite the move, his numbers actually improved. The guy just doesn't throw interceptions.
Smith's senior season 71% 42-6 numbers remind you of .........
Wilson's senior season 73% 33-4 his one year @ Wisconsin after three @ NC State

What supporting cast on offense did Smith have in SF that wasn't in place until Harbough arrived? The only piece he added was Crabtree, most of the OL, TE and RB where in place. And is not like Smith went to Crabtree much.

Smith started to do great because for once, he had a coach that believed in him and for once had continuity with the offensive coordinator. Smith is not a world beater, but he is definitely better than any QB they had had since Montana.

Plus, your post (rant) loses all credibility once you state Dilfer looked serviceable once upon a time. Smith is far away from Dilfer talent wise. Dilfer sucked an rode the Best Defense in the history of the NFL to a title. Dilfer sucked balls.

I initially thought this too, but after watching him play, it's easy to notice that a majority of his throws are within 5 yards of the LOS.

The only knock on Wilson was his height. If Wilson had Geno Smith's height, he would have been drafted in the top 10.
