Alex Smith averaged 5 yards per pass attempt today.

Well, to Jacksonville's credit, they did manage to score 2 points against the Chiefs, so they weren't entirely shut out.

Gabbert is so horrid, even Tebow would be an improvement there.

They will have a lower attendance record than the Raiders. Tebow will not make them worse and sell tickets. New owner needs to realize this and turn that team into the wishbone offense so they eat away a ton of time so the fans can get back in the parking lot to drink their sorrows away.

Or, they could just draft a real QB out of college? Gabbert has sucked from day one but I think they want to give him every opportunity to succeed before they spend another #1 pick on a QB.

I'm surprised Jax didn't take a flyer on at least one QB in this last draft, especially in the later rounds. They could have picked up Bray in the 7th round.

Just bad management decisions by that front office.

I find it hilarious the Chief fans celebrating after having a good game against a terrible Jaguars team that was without its best offensive player in Blackmon, like that would've made a difference.

Blaine Gabbert
Quarterback, Jacksonville Jaguars
Gabbert deserves credit for forging ahead with fractured right thumb, and for continuing to play with a cut on the same hand that needed 15 stitches. But the offense he and the Jaguars put on the field Sunday was historically bad. Gabbert managed just 121 yards and was sacked six times while completing 16 of 35 passes. His average yards per attempt of 3.46 is the seventh-lowest in an NFL game, with a minimum of 20 attempts, since 1960.

I just want to throw this out there for all the kc fans: Alex Smith stats for this game--21 completions on 34 attempts for a staggering 173 yards, 2 TD passes and not INTs. That's an average of 5 yards per pass. His two TD passes averaged 4 yards. The good news is kc did well in the redzone. The bad news is Alex Smith looks like Alex Smith.

Alex Smith is a better name than Croyle, Quinn and Cassel.

Cecil Shorts is better than Blackmon.

Croyle, Quinn and Cassel sounds like an eastcoast law firm.

Still no response at to why kFc's O was unable to score in the 2nd half vs a bad team, down 21 who were lucky to manage a hand full of 1st downs...

To be fair, it wasn't like they needed to do so. Once KC got up 14-2, it was over.

Alex Smith is not going to win or lose games for them.

Did anyone see how overly obese Andy Reid is?

Disgusting, that man is gonna have a coronary on the sidelines!

The Chiefs fans are excited about beating up on the lowly jaguars. They have the #1 defense. Lol.

Yeah, when you are 2-26 lifetime when your defense gives up 24 or more points, it is a label that you are going to have to try to shed

Dinking and Dunking all the way to 7-9.
Reid called the dogs off in the 2nd half. It was more vanilla than our 3rd preseason game.

I think we'll see Reid open the playbook this week.
