How many games will the Chiefs win PYMWYMI

How many games will the Chiefs win PYMWYMI

That short stuff early will set up passes to the WRs. Imagine being hit with that short stuff all 1st qtr, safeties will start to cheat and boom WRs will get theirs! This could also set up 1st plays against other teams the following week. It's a chess game and I think Alex is the type of QB that can win at chess especially now that he has his hands over the pieces. They came out in spread formations and it looked like Alex from Utah, the deep stuff will come!

One thing you should keep in mind is Alex has never had the killer instinct. He isn't a guy that will carry the offense with his arm. He is a smart QB, but he out-thinks himself and takes very few chances. This will result in few turnovers, but it will also result in a dink-and-dunk offense. This type of offense will work fine if your defense can hold off the opposing team, but it's going to be a problem if your offense needs to put up 30+.

Andy's tendency to throw the ball may change the way Alex plays, which could be good and bad. If he becomes more aggressive, he will commit more turnovers. If he doesn't, your offense will lack the firepower needed to hang with high-powered teams unless your defense can shut them down. Alex isn't the type of QB that will give you the best of both worlds.

As for the poster who said we won championships with the same dink and dunk offense... those championship teams had no problem putting up 30 points. Dink and dunk philosophy, but that offense, at the time, was unstoppable because nobody knew how to defend it. That isn't the case anymore.

This. If the Chiefs D plays lights out, they will win a lot of games. If their D is poop and gets down early. Then good luck. Anyone comparing Smith's play to the days when we had Young and Montana or even Garcia is out to lunch. We never had a prolific offense with Alex. Not even close. So much delusion here it makes me laugh.
The offense was very good here the last 2 seasons. The only knock Alex was that it wasn't as explosive quick strike and aggressive downfield until Kap took over. But anyone saying we didn't have one of the better offenses in this league under Alex was sleeping. Now I can agree that Kap unleashed our true potential as Vernon Davis said "they took the chains off". We need look no further than to what Alex did week 1 in Lambeau vs Aaron Rodgers. Alex was very good
Anyone watch Smitty in KC last night. Glad he's gone he was captain check down All over again. He attempted nothing but check downs to the slot receivers, TE's and backs. I had a complete déjà vu. Glad we turned the page. Go Niners. BTW I say 8 games for Smitty and KC.

Smith and Reid know their tribulations last season are the reason they are together. And they know the success of the Chiefs is largely dependent on them.

"We'd love to stick it to everybody who thought we couldn't do it, he and I included," Smith, 29, said in a recent interview.

We haven't heard much from this Alex before. I like it.

7 for 8 and the one inc was a throw away. Kaep will be great and certainly better than Alex on your fantasy football team, but your captain checkdown comment demonstrates your knowledge of the game.
11-5

He did not make one attempt to a WR beyond 5 yards. Hard to miss those. Hahaha what a homer. I don't care about fantasy football and yes he was 7/8 but the throws were easy to complete. Watch the game don't only rely on stats.

Marched all the way down the field. TD was scored. I don't see the problem.


This whole fixation/obsession is bizarre, really.

If these throws are so easy to complete and result in a scoring drive as it did, why doesn't every team do it? Especially the ones without qbs?

By the way...he made one pass to a wr...I think it was more than 5 yards...I know it went for 12 with yac...but who's looking at stats? You're right, he didn't even look downfield on those two screen plays. What was he thinking?

maybe you missed that they scored a td on smith's drive

Apparently those don't count when the ball doesn't travel over 5 yards to a wr.
Alex talking smack about doubters. 8 years of failure would qualify as a realist more so than a doubter.

Gotta blame someone for arguably the worst ball club in the NFL... But it can't be the owners, the coaches, or any of the other players... just the QB.

Anyhow, he looked pretty good on that drive, saw some of that mobility, some pretty good throws...

What a lot of people who think he's a dink and dunk QB won't tell you is that the majority of those passing plays had MAYBE one deep route, all the rest were short to intermediate... No reason to throw 30 yards downfield, risking an INT when you can pick up 5, 6, 10...
