QB Alex Smith under the gun in KC: 'You can't ignore everything, you can't live in a hole'

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith is starting to feel the heat after two straight losses and his inability to break out of the dink and dunk style that is frustrating fans. Once the savior of the franchise, Smith now has to prove he's capable of leading the team going forward.

Chiefs' QB Alex Smith under fire in more ways than one

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Alex Smith is feeling plenty of heat these days. The Chiefs quarterback has been sacked 13 times through three games, putting him on pace for 69 this season. That would be the third-most in NFL history, behind the 76 times that Houston's David Carr went down in 2002, and Randall Cunningham's 72 sacks in 1986. Neither of their teams, incidentally, made the playoffs...

WATCH: Chiefs throw first touchdown to WR since 2013

Packin’ in the Rain

HISTORY IN THE MAKING PEOPLE In what was an oft-rainy night an Lambeau Field (IF ONLY IT WERE SNOW WE'D ALL EXPLODE), our long national nightmare finally ended. No, Alex Smith did not retire. Instead, he finally threw a touchdown to a receiver (shown above), something that hadn't happened in the Chiefs last 17 games. Or, in calendar terms, not since December 8th, 2013. Folks,...

WATCH: Green Bay Packers Defenders Miss Alex Smith And Whack Each Other

During the fourth quarter of Monday night's game Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs finally started generating some offense. As much damage as the Green Bay defense did on the Chiefs offense the first three quarters it was about time Kansas City started fighting back a little.

Lawrence Tynes mocks Alex Smith as ‘check down master’

    The Kansas City Chiefs put on nothing short of a pitiful performance on national TV against the Green Bay Packers, opening them up criticism from all angles.

Andy Reid might be biggest thing holding back the Chiefs

While Andy Reid has earned and maintained respect for years throughout NFL circles for his drafting, scouting and coaching ability, his play calling has always been something critics have pointed at as the reason he never won a Super Bowl as the head honcho of the Philadelphia Eagles. Now in a new environment with all the control he could ever want, Reid’s play calling has never...

Will Chiefs QB Alex Smith really throw the ball deep in 2015?

Is this the year Alex Smith finally shrugs off his short-passing tendencies and takes shots down the field? The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback has long been allergic to distributing the football to his receivers and has been the worst in the league at connecting on deep passes for years now.
