"Jaws' QB Countdown" on SportsCenter and NFL Live continued with his assessment of Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith. Smith, acquired via a trade with the 49ers that brought him out of backup status and into the limelight once again, has Kansas City fans hoping for a revival or sorts after a dismal 2012 with Matt Cassel under center. Former QB and ESPN film guru/analyst Ron Jaworski says "a year ago, Smith was coming off his best season in the NFL, having led the 49ers to the NFC Championship. This year, he’s the starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. It was a great move by (Chiefs coach) Andy Reid to acquire Smith." “The defining element of Smith’s play is efficiency.
