Odd how everywhere Smith goes the defense improves! Go figure!

Because he never turns it over and puts the defense in a bad position. He for sure improves defenses.

With all the pro bowls and MVPs to prove it

What's even more amusing is all the people that said KC was in for a long season because their defense wasn't close to as good as ours and they didn't have our OL or receivers (te and wrs) yet there he is...doing the exact same thing he did here...finding a way to win.

I would LOVE to see that game...and what a story it would make. I doubt it'll happen...but wow.

Yup.
As I watch this one again, I must say.. the scrub #3 TE that KC just picked up to help with the absences of Fasano and Kelce... Sean McGrath? He is really beginning to win me over as a potential impact weapon. (if Fasano or Kelce can't make it back soon or get their butts in gear)

I doubt the Chiefs will finish with a better record. Their 3-0 start is very misleading. Dallas and Philly beat themselves more than KC beat them. KC's defense is very good, much better than I expected, but their OL has been horrendous for most of the last two games. Unless it drastically improves I'm sorry to say Alex will probably finish this season on IR.

It needs improvement but I would not call it horrendous. Brandon Albert and Jon Asomoah are Pro Bowlers. However, LG has been a problem due to injuries. Return to full health for Jeff Allen will help a lot. #1 overall pick Eric Fisher has struggled but has also shown all the tools to become a top level OT. Right now he is learning a new position. (he played OLT in college and now is at ORT) As he gains experience his play will pick up. Andy Reid has helped them out by calling a lot of quick pass plays that do not require pass protection to be held for more than 2.5 seconds. Alex is the perfect QB for that role as he reads defensive alignments well and has been making excellent adjustments to protection.

For all that they have struggled in some situations, they have also opened holes for Charles and given Smith reasonable, not great protection. The arrow is pointing up for that unit.

Only fantasy fans said the defense was not good. Those who actually watched the games saw the talent there. The reason the numbers looked bad was because the QBs kept giving the ball back to the opponents. In addition to 5 Pro Bowlers on that defense, they have now added Sean Smith to the secondary. Right now, I would rather have the KC defense than the 49er defense. Berry, Sean Smith, Brandon Flowers, Poe, Houston and Hali are playing better than their counterparts on the 49ers.

I do struggle to agree with this. The OL has been far more horrendous than good. Very unimpressed with the OGs so far, and Fisher looks like a 6th rounder. Of course, it's early, and I won't condemn them. They must play better though, or the losses and potential QB injury will show itself.

The run blocks are hit and miss... sometimes clogged up entirely, and sometimes quite good.

eh, we are just questioning degrees. The OL definitely needs improvement. I read an article, I think on NFL, that called Fisher a 6th rounder. IMO, he looks a lot like Anthony Davis did his rookie year.

Whatever the level they are at now, they will have to improve when they get to Denver and Houston.

Not really true. Even the Chief fans didn't have very high expectations for their Defense. Above average at best was really where most people were estimating. The front 3 were unproven and thought to be adequate at best..and many thought much worse. The LBs were solid, but with no expectation they'd be anything near our LB core and the DBs were pretty good when you considered Berry and Flowers...but Sean Smith hasn't never demonstrated himself to be anything near what his performance has been...and I'd be shocked if 2 out of 10 NFL fans could name the Chief's other safety.

I think Davis was better, but not so much so that it is unreasonable to think Fisher could be a stud next season. I'm more concerned about the interior line than the tackles.
alex smith gets a chance to exorcise some demons with the giants coming up next..same for colin kaepernick with the rams up next..i hope both come out winners

DJ, although they may not be horrendous talent-wise and potential-wise, they have played very, very poorly in pass protection. I would say pretty close to horrendous at times. Smith was absolutely battered in the Dallas game and got lit up constantly. The Eagles didn't get to him quite as much but he still was running for his life on a fair amount of plays.

Fortunately for Alex after having Kwame and Chilo, the bad line protection was not as disconcerting for him. He's seen it before and can deal with it moderately well.
