i also was the one that broke that Nate Davis got traded to the Colts before it happened .. so believe what ya want .. but this is pretty much the deal. Obviously anything can happen between now and 3/12 but from what i was told today.. This was the deal agreed on and good to go.


Lulz.

Yes, because his track record indicates that's exactly the kind of guy he is. Doing that would be a surefire way for him to continue his career elsewhere in the NFL....oh wait, NO it wouldn't.

My point is still valid. If Alex tells a team he doesn't want to play there they won't be inclined to give up anything of value to bring him in. It is just common sense. History has shown he is emotionally fragile and needs the right situation to succeed. Nobody is giving up anything of value for him unless he is on board with it.

what's not to like about KC as the best situation for Alex?

Pro Bowl RB
QB friendly/guru HC
talent on defense

what other QB needy team offers a better situation for Alex?

Agreed. Best situation for Alex IMO. They also have the no.1 pick and will likely draft LT

I would disagree that Alex Smith is "emotionally fragile". That man has gone through 7 years of all sorts of different crap and has held his ground and came back every single time (including the incident this past season with his concussion, he has handled the situation very professionally and that's the kind of guy he is).

Now back to the whole Alex Smith and KC thing. Good thing this trade is between the front offices only so if Alex doesn't like where he ends up and expresses it, it would be too late because the trade already happened.
Man if we seriously get a 3rd and another pick for Alex wow.. Totally raped KC

What?

I could have sworn he continued to play through a shoulder injury, public degradation, 60,000 fans booing him... How is that emotionally fragile, Vince Young?
Alex Smith for Brady Quinn !

There's a video a month or so back I think it was nfl network where they were talking about the top QB's in the draft and Geno Smith's NFL comparison was...Alex Smith.

That would be freaking hilarious if that got posted on the Chiefs board.

Found the video. Not as good as I remember but still good.

I have to be honest, if Smith was emotionally fragile IMO he would have topped himself.
