How many games will the Chiefs win PYMWYMI

Except Marino and Fouts were the exceptions to the rule. The Niners were a top 10 passing team just about every year under Montana. We were not anymore run balanced then the average team.

I think part of that is the scoring efficiency. Playing from a1-2 score ahead of the other team. Where as Marino and Fouts were mostly about their offensive team that tries to outscore the opponents rather than concentrating on playing better defense to go along with their offense. Niners tend to beat them to the punch to go up early in scores, than just methodical ball control passing and running, along with a good defense.

Smith and the Chiefs may not jump out on top early in the game, but they do play ball control passing and running mix. Once they are up 1-2 scores going into the 4th, it's another 9 minutes scoring drive to take total control of the TOP and the game.

Similar WCO style offense that doesn't need to amass 300+ passing yards a game. The purpose is to take scores and TOP away from the other team.

Sean McGrath was asked this question.

Describe Alex Smith.

"Alex is a great quarterback. He spreads the ball out and as a tight end, you're looking for a guy that does that, because you get the pill a little bit more. He goes through his progressions and the great thing about Alex is, he's going to hit the open guy, no matter who it is. From what I've seen, he doesn't have a specific target, before the play is already called; he's going to make his reads and he's going to throw to the open man."

wonder what we would have to trade to get him back? lol
I honestly think our coaches aren't the best at bringing out the best in our players. Alex is doing some things under Reid that I wish our coaches would have done with him. I've always thought he had the tools and mind to be great in this league. He's looking like that kid from Utah that was going to light up the NFL. It's pretty clear now that he just never had the right coaches around him to bring out the best in him.

They either play well with a lead or come back well when behind...not sure there are any other possibilities. In both cases they are winning...which is what counts. Those 9 minute drives are heaven sent for the defense and that's why I've always concluded that Smith helps the defense as much as the defense helps him.

The point was that you COULD put up big passing numbers in 1984 if you chose to play that way. The WCO was/is a system that holds onto the ball, wears out the other team's defense and keeps the defense fresh to do its thing. The TOP is just as important as personnel is to having a "good" defense. In short, WCO is very defense-friendly...for their own defense.


If you had Dan Marino you could.

Not totally in disagreement but a solid run game with big passing plays will work as well. See Pittsburgh and their 2 Super Bowl rings.

Well, lets put it another way, they stay competitive going into the 4th. Then they put up a 9min scoring drive (3pts or a TD) . Now the other team has about 5-6 mins to respond. And in reality, it's only about 3-4 min because the Chiefs gets the ball back in between. I'm thinking in terms of 2 scoring drives for the other team to get a win in this situation.

Huh? The Joe Montana was a top passer during those years. You are assuming Walsh would have never adjusted to this era and would have still kept that run-pass ratio. Back then, teams that had better QB's had better passing numbers. Joe Montana was one of those QB's which was why 49ers always was a top passing team. They just weren't crazy with it as they are now due to the new rules and 3-5 set WR's.

Walsh wouldn't have kept the same balance and the passing would have been more explosive. Harbaugh had direct contact and conversations with Walsh. Harbaugh has that balance mentality but it is still adjusted to today's game.

A coach plays to the strength of this QB. Alex's strength is not to be a dynamic passer.

On hindsight we can look back: If you are a HC going into a 2-14 team like Andy Reid, someone offers you a qb that will shore up the most important position in football, to let you concentrate on the other aspect of implementing your newly installed offense at a cost of 2 - 2nd rounder. That's actually a pretty good deal for Andy Reid. I thought we could only get a 4th, maybe a high 3rd for Smith, myself...

...and that would so stupid, seeing how Smith is now

I think even Smith's contract is on a cheap side for a starting qb and playing like he is. So that's also cap friendly for the Chiefs.

It was also Smith's luck that Reid happened to be fired by his team, and hired by a team that only needed a QB (no need for serious rebuilding.) It was much better than going to places like Jacksonville.

What I found strange was the Vikings never tried to trade for Smith.

With his age (27) and consistent good play, he could be a starting QB for another 7-10 years, so it might be a while before we get to read such a book.

Oh yeah... I forgot. It'd have been awkward a reunion.

Halfway through the book, the publisher will switch authors and put in an author who is more exciting and has better upside.

Throws 41 times, gets 288 yards.

Joecool's daily planner

  • Wake up
  • Pee
  • Not watch NFL analysts
  • Hate on Alex for personal reasons
  • Check Chiefs score and realize they are about to win
  • Get pissed off for reasons we can't figure out
  • Post some anti-Alex crap to make himself feel better
  • Go to bed

Hey! Hey!

I edited for you.

LOL! Very important distinction!

Further edit: Pee on his Alex Smith fathead
