If you haven't known, Smith is passing at 56% with nearly half as many INTs as TD's and a low rating. I'm talking about Reid's offense with Alex Smith. The KC passing game has gotten worse. Why don't you look at Smith's weekly rating. It has dropped nearly each week where it was at 94.4 in week 1 and was 56.9 week 6.
Even heard on the radio that the Raiders were focusing on the underneath routes. I have seen some of the other Chiefs games and the ones Alex played well, there were a lot of underneath routes open. In the past few weeks, the underneath coverage has been tighter and teams are forcing KC to throw the long bomb.
So, if teams are not beginning figure out the offense, then how do you explain the drop in production from week to week?
Really...? lol JCharles got huge chunks of yardage out of the backfield from Captain Checkdown against the Raiders. So what the hell happened to that game plan
I think it's more of the Raiders covering the deep and intermediate 10yds out, and keeping 5-10yds in front of them, couple that with a good pass rush. And you saw what happened to the Chiefs, struggling to convert any 3rd and 9.
