Alex Smith to the Chiefs: My Thoughts

Follow me on Twitter @BrianSanchezDU Like my Facebook page The Sports Report   The first words that come to mind when I think about the proposed Alex Smith trade are highway robbery. Luckily for the 49ers, this is a, “what have you done for me lately” league. Because of that, the fact that Alex Smith was one of the worst quarterbacks in the league for the first five years...

Dwayne Bowe Extension, Alex Smith Acquisition Make Chiefs Immediate Contenders in Weak AFC West

The Kansas City Chiefs will be a playoff team this season. No, seriously. The trade for Alex Smith was a huge step in the right direction, but Monday’s roster moves — highlighted by the signing of wide receiver Dwayne Bowe to a five-year extension and franchising of tackle Branden Albert – solidified the necessary foundation for the NFL’s worst team to morph into a legitimate...

This year, paired with new QB Alex Smith he is poised to increase his production. In the hours before today’s franchise tag deadline the Kansas City Chiefs and receiver Dwayne Bowe agreed on a five year deal that could conceivably keep the 28 year old wideout in Kansas...

Kansas City Chiefs Could Make History With No.1 Overall Pick

BY J.P. SCOTT ON MARCH 6, 2013 Despite finishing with the worst record in the NFL in 2012, the Kansas City Chiefs headed into the 2013 offseason with a limited number of needs. Perhaps the most pressing need was stability at the quarterback position, which was taken care of with the acquisition of Alex Smith. This all but ruled out the possibility that the Chiefs will take a quarterback...

Revisiting The 2003 Quarterback Class: Ten Years Later

The 2012 draft was a special draft that saw five rookie quarterbacks emerge as starters in the NFL with two of them being selected back-to-back with the two picks.For most of the season things looked as if the 2013 draft could go the same way with USC quarterback Matt Barkley drawing the majority of the talk while West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith was showing what he had with...

49ers Not Interested In Darrelle Revis & Cut Kicker David Akers

After trading Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs, the San Francisco 49ers are doing more this offseason in preparation for the upcoming draft. One direction the 49ers do not intend to go is the signing of the highly skilled New York Jets star cornerback Darrelle Revis. Coming out of the 49ers camp was this quote on their pursuit of Revis, saying they are “.001 on a scale of 1...

Chiefs Make Dwayne Bowe Third Highest-Paid WR in NFL With $56 Million Contract

After agreeing with the San Francisco 49ers on acquiring quarterback Alex Smith in a trade late February, the Kansas City Chiefs made sure they had a legitimate target for the veteran signal caller to throw to by signing wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, according to the team’s press release Monday.

Kansas City Chiefs re-sign WR Dwayne Bowe

I don’t have a strong opinion on this move. It was a buyer’s market at wide receiver this off-season, but your own guy is always more valuable to you than anyone else. Bowe will be learning a new offensive system and playing with a new quarterback this year in Kansas City with Andy Reid and Alex Smith coming in, but Smith is arguably the best quarterback he’s ever had (not...
