Alex Smith Headed to the Kansas City Chiefs
As a diehard Kansas City Chiefs fan, I have to say that I’m pretty stoked right now about the Chiefs' decision to trade for Alex Smith! I’ve gone through some rough seasons as a Chiefs fan, we all have, but I have high hopes for next year. The position we needed the most help with was at quarterback. Matt Cassel had one decent year with us, but his time is over. He turned the ball over way too much last year and was just awful. Brady Quinn isn’t the answer either. Ricky Stanzi never even got on the field despite how horrible we were last season, so I think that shows no one had confidence in him being the future of our team.
The Chiefs trading for Alex Smith is brilliant. He’s not the greatest quarterback in the league, but he took the 49ers to the NFC Championship game in the 2011 season. There were no good quarterbacks worth taking with the first overall pick in this year’s draft, so this is the best possible move that the Chiefs could make.
Smith, a former first overall pick in 2005, spent eight seasons in San Francisco. He played his best football during the 2011 season. The 49ers were doing well in the 2012 season, but when Smith suffered a concussion midway through the season, Colin Kaepernick took his place. Kaepernick performed very well and ended up starting for the rest of the season and led the Niners to the Super Bowl.
So what do you think of the trade? Let us know!
