Alex Smith got head coach Andy Reid his first win with the Kansas City Chiefs. They beat the Jacksonville Jaguars convincingly 28-2 in their season opener. Is this the year the Chiefs make a return to the glory days of Chiefs football? It is certainly a turn in the right direction. With Smith as the team’s new starting quarterback and a head coach that knows how to win in the NFL, the question now becomes if the Chiefs have enough Indians to get the job done this season. Smith is certainly going to make a difference in Kansas City. It has been a while since the Chiefs have had a quarterback who is truly a leader on the field. Smith threw for 173 yards and 2 touchdowns today. Te Chiefs ran the ball for 120 yards and one more touchdown. The defense rushed the quarterback and hit him a total of 10 times in the game and sacked the QB, 6 times. Defensively it looks like the Chiefs have enough personnel to get the job done this season. The defense has been good for the past couple of seasons but the offense was the missing link in the equation. Now that they found their quarterback they just may have enough Indians to get the job done. We have to remember they played the Jacksonville Jaguars today and not a team that is considered an NFL contender. But I would say the Chiefs look like a much improved team this season and they could turn things around in Kansas City if they can continue to play with the confidence they played with today. As far as if they have enough Indians to get the job done, only time will tell. But they are off to a great start….
