Deal for Alex Smith Done?

They are reeling at Alex and want Gino Smith....now that is why KC will never win a superbowl.

Of course we can hold on to both but as you noted, no one is going to sell the farm for Alex, so why should we pretend to play hard ball when everyone knows that we want to trade Alex and that it would be terrible for the locker room if we did hold on to him? The money owed to Alex is not overwhelming amongst QBs, however it is top end money for most other positions in this league. Everyone knows we are best served trading Alex, keeping him prevents us from improving as a team by allocating his salary elsewhere.

I explicitly said in my post that playing hardball isn't really Baalke's style. Though, I think the whole "locker room chemistry" thing is a bit overrated, especially in this case. Can you really see Alex causing a stink? Despite having NUMEROUS occasions offered to him where he would have been well within his rights to go apish*t he kept it professional, and kept it moving.

I mean really, if he flipped out and horse-slapped Nolan after being benched for JT O'Sullivan, could anyone really blame him?

Two, the money is irrelevant as I stated that we can comfortably afford both. But I fully agree that the money is better spent elsewhere considering he is no longer a starter. And that is exactly why he is going to be traded. If not to the Chiefs, then somewhere else.

Fret not my friend.

AS will have the chiefs as instant playoff contenders in that division.

LOL Please send me some of that good stuff you are smoking.

That chiefs team is ready to roll with AS under center. He fits nearly perfect there.

From you comments you would think that Alex Smith is the Hall of Fame and SB winning QB and Manning is the guy that very few teams really want.

From yours you would think he was Matt Cassel.

LOL Alex Smith is a hell of a lot closer to Matt Cassel than he will ever be to Peyton Manning.
It's terrible all the hate Alex Smith is getting around here. Comparing him to Matt Cassel? Granted, he's not better than C. Kaep. But, for crying out loud he's a way better option than Matt Cassel. Contrary to popular belief, Alex wasn't the main reason we were loosing all those seasons. Bad coaching, the coaching carousel, mismanagement of the available talent, all had, in my mind, a much bigger negative affect on this team than one Alex Smith. This possible send off by some fans here is in poor taste.

Sincerely,

Every NFL Team
This. As much as I have certain opinions about the draft and free agency, ultimately I trust the people who are paid to do this, whose careers hinge on making smart decisions, to do right by the team. Had the 49ers listened to the fans, this team would have Adam Carriker and Blaine Gabbert in lieu of Patrick Willis and Aldon Smith. I also seem to recall the Taylor Mays pick being highly popular around these parts and people calling it a "steal."

Of course, there are also times when your team opts to take a punter in the 3rd over a potential franchise quarterback but I digress........moves shouldn't be judged by how immediately popular or unpopular they will be with fans but how they will affect the ultimate product out on the field that people will be paying to watch.

Liking this "Peyton's Princess" dude on the Chiefs board. Feel bad for him trying to single-handedly convince the delusional Chiefs fans who think the world will end if they trade for Smith.


Chiefs fans apparently would b***h about anyone who wasn't Geno Smith. They're so incredibly f**king delusional and it's absolutely priceless. Can't stop reading this s**t.

Every fan board is like that. I'm sure many outsiders say the same about this board. Geno Smith isn't a top pick but he is pretty damn good.

No, but I don't understand what that has to do with anything.

Why would anybody here defend a random QB? I know its hard for you to give any credit to Alex.

Let's be reality, he's basically the same player that Alex Smith was coming out of college. Spread QB that directed an explosive offense, athletic, bright, not seen as ready to become a starter immediately in the NFL...etc. The best thing for Geno Smith would be to have a smart veteran QB to sit behind for a couple seasons.
So nobody knows what we are getting? A 3rd round next year? A 4th round this year?
