12, they lose vs Texans, @ Broncos, @ Redskins, vs Colts.

Redskins are a train wreck. Schaub will have a VERY difficult time with the outside pass rush from Hali and Houston. Broncos x2and Colts are the three toughest games remaining.

The Chiefs could very well be one of those magical turnaround team this year to be vaulted into the NFL elite. Like the Niners of 2011. And the guy in charge of the offense for both teams is Alex freak'n Smith . In that regard, he would be one of the luckiest SOB to ever do that. Is there any other guy through football history to be the qb of 2 different teams with a 4-12 and 2-14 respectively, to do a complete turn around to go 12-14 wins the next year

There is nothing lucky about him. He makes the right decisions, reads the field well and doesn't turn it over. That's winning football. He was always underrated on this board and now the haters are getting punched in the mouth. They look pretty stupid at this point. They said he could never do it with another team. It was just the 49ers talent around him. Well he just went to a 2 - 14 team. Worst team in the league. And they 5 - 0. The only significant change is Alex Smith. It's fair to say he has A LOT to do with it.....
Love me some Alex Smith.
Give 'em hell kid.

the chiefs last year were missing two pieces. they had a lot of pro bowl talent on the team and couldnt do anything with it. JESUS the parallels you can draw between the 2010 niners and the 2012 chiefs are incredible. But yeah. They were just missing a coach and a serviceable QB. Matt Cassel was terrible and romeo crennel was worse than singletary

the chiefs could take their division. I've been saying it since june

Those who are unbiased and sufficiently intelligent could easily see that Alex Smith is a very good, very smart qb that helps his team win.

Absolutely brilliant post! It's essentially the same freaking Chiefs team that just went 2-14 in 2012. The only significant difference on the field is Mr Elite Gamemanager Alex Smith. It's no easy feat to step in to a 2-14 team and take it to 5-0 out of the gate. Looking at the Chiefs schedule after starting 5-0 12-4 11-5 or 10-6 is not out of the question.

Alex will only get better he is only 5 games in to a new offensive system with new coaches new OC new team mates new OL new city new everything.

I agree with that.
This team is so fun to watch. I love to see great defense and watch Alex excel.

Chiefs have the best scoring defense in the league. Given up only 58 points (12 less than the next best team) in 5 games and one of those games was against a team that put 48 on the board yesterday.

That "lousy" offense is now #8 in the league.

Yes, they have played a weaker schedule but their consistently solid play has put them tied with Denver and the Saints for the best record in football...and they seemed to looking more impressive every week.

Raiders next, followed by Texans, Browns and Bills before Denver. Denver has the Jags and then the Colts followed by Redskins and Chargers. Could be a game between two 9-0 teams, or 8-1 at the least. That will be a big game.

Good post...thanks!

Not sure it is luck when you do it twice....

Yeah, at that point it becomes kind of a trend.

I have to believe if Alex wins a Super Bowl, there might be a movie about the guy one day.

Currently, Smith has had 53 more pass attempts than Kaepernick. Smith has a 58.4 completion % to Kap's 56.1. Smith has a 83.7 QB rating to Kap's 81.9. Smith has a 6.5 yard per catch to Kap's 7.34. Smith has 7 TD's against 3 ints and Kap has 6 TD's against 4 ints. The Niners have played four playoff teams from last year and the fifth was the Rams in St. Louis on a Thursday night, so I'd say the Niners have had the tougher schedule so far.

So, I think it's a little early to be lurching to the conclusion that the trade was a mistake. Let's let the season play out a little more.

so now, even you are engaging in the Kaep vs Alex comparisons that the mods have been clear about wanting us to avoid?

is Kaep on a new team with a new system and new players? I need a nap..

Please look a little deeper and farther back in the conversation. The comparison was a response to someone who earlier said the trade was a mistake. My only point was that it was way too early to come to that conclusion because the stats show that performance is closer than win-loss record would lead one to believe. And, if you look at the statistics I posted, you might notice that they show that Alex IS playing marginally better football right now. As to your last point, Alex Smith is an 8 year NFL veteran playing in a system Andy Reid has put together specifically with Alex Smith in mind. Andy Reid said this himself. So let's not pretend that Smith has had to go learn an entirely new system. Smith also stated early on that the systems were so similar that it was not even like he had to learn a new one. And, what the mods have wanted to avoid was provocative arguing about the QB's. If the mods have a problem with this, it should be with the poster I responded to, not to me. Here is the post I responded to because I don't agree with it and I think it's way too early to lurch to this conclusion:

Ok, I will say it. Right now it looks like the 49ers traded the wrong QB. The 49ers would have gotten multiple firsts for Kap, and Alex Smith is playing better ball right now. Kap is in a sophomore slump right now. Defenses have found a defense that he doesn't play well against right now, plus I think he is a bit rattled and has regressed. We all hope that Kap figures things out and goes back to his playoff ways, but if he does not, the trade was a mistake.


He brought up Kaepernick. I didn't. If you don't mind me saying this, some of you guys need to calm down about this tendency you have to feel you need to defend Alex Smith. Nobody needs to defend Smith. It would be refreshing if some of you would allow that a Niner fan could support both players. I'm just an honest Niner fan. I support the team. I root for the team first and the individual players second. This has happened many times. I watched every Joe Montana game he ever played for the Niners. I was a huge Montana fan. I only saw a couple of his Chiefs games, because they were Chiefs games - I'm not a Chiefs fan. It's exactly the same with Alex Smith - huge Alex Smith fan here from the beginning. But, I haven't seen any of his Chiefs games yet - just bits and pieces, highlights. I wish him well because I think he's a genuinely great individual. My goal is not in any way to demean or dismiss him. I think he's an awesome athlete and one of the toughest QB's the Niners have ever had. In fact, I'll go as far as to say he seems to me to be the toughest Niner QB since Brodie and I've got specific reasons for saying that. I'd be happy to share the toughness observations in detail, but this is going way too long. Nobody likes long posts around here.

kudos to Smith, but the Chiefs defense is NUMBER 1 in the NFL and Andy Reid gets huge credit
