Tis amazing how little love there is for Alex among Chiefs fans who post in the Chiefs Planet forum. There is one thread, updated often I might add, that reads: "Alex Smith did, does, and will always suck."
The man has led the Chiefs to an 8-0 start, and the best he can get is "Alex Smith did, does, and will always suck?"
Harsh. I thought there'd be some love for the man, but after yesterday's game (not one of his best), it's all Negative Nancy.
There is some backstory to that, as Alex to them is just yet another re-tread QB that won't get their team anywhere. They are already msierable because going from a 2-14 to an 8-0 team means nothing unless they win it all and have their magical QBotF in place.
Just as the world turns, there are always a dozen or so haters on active forums that just happen to be the most vocal. Like I said, look around at other KC sites, and you will see far more maturity and wisdom from KC fans. Chiefsplanet pretty well allows any type of behavior...so they end up with lots of very immature punks that frankly lack any sense of patience, foresight, and class.
... but if it is entertainment vs insightful football discussion you seek? Then enjoy!
Not really entertainment, but just to see how the fan reaction was. I mean -- I remember when Harbaugh took us from an afterthought and turned us into a powerhouse overnight. I had a feeling he might do that, but I incorrectly guessed it would take him three years to get the job done. He did it in three games instead.
But I remember feeling damned ecstatic about it! I wasn't b***hin,' moanin,' and cryin' about Alex Smith. I had (incorrectly) predicted that Smith would never be a winner, and I ate every last word of crow for uttering a line like that. But, point is, I was pretty damn happy. After the dry spell we went through? To see wins like that? Even with Smith at QB? Count me as a happy camper.
Perhaps I need to go to a different Chiefs Forum then? I always Chief's Planet was the best one (or most popular) -- sort of like the following we have here on the 49er Webzone...
Which, of course, is the absolute best in the business, bar none!
