Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith soars in latest QB Rankings

Quarterback remains the most-important position in all of sports, but that doesn’t mean it’s not evolving. In fact, the past 10 years have seen a drastic shift in the way success is defined behind center. No longer are quarterbacks asked to simply stand in the pocket and deliver passes to receiver. More and more, they are becoming dynamic, two-way threats, players who can torment...

In this game of chicken, Chiefs fans see red, Houston sees miles of green

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It takes two to tango, kids. So before you throw John Dorsey under the Twitter bus for the 15th time this afternoon, ask yourself two questions: 1. If you were in Dorsey's shoes, would you rather have Justin Houston locked up, pain-free, in the long term for the Kansas City Chiefs, or quarterback Alex Smith? 2. Which player is likely to go out and break the bank...

Can the Kansas City Chiefs afford to let this offensive lineman walk in free agency?

It’s a tough position to evaluate. There aren’t a lot of stats to help with the cause. Styles of play can sometimes skew opinions. And the difference between a win and a loss on any given play isn’t always black and white. But what is clear is that it’s a vital position. Whether a team is run-first or pass-happy, the ability to control the line of scrimmage is the key to...

Report: Kansas City Chiefs release veteran tight end, save nearly $2M

Chiefs mock draft: Just because they need a WR doesn't mean they'll take one first

It might surprise Chiefs fans to learn that quarterback Alex Smith threw just two fewer touchdown passes last season (18) than Seattle's Russell Wilson (20) and that the Chiefs scored 36 offensive touchdowns, compared with 40 by the Seahawks. For a beleaguered offense, it wasn't that much less productive than one that almost won a Super Bowl. Even so, that reality is overshadowed...

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith slides down in this week’s QB Rankings

Quarterback is the most important position in all of sports. That’s why teams are so willing to pony up big bucks to a signal caller when they have (or think they have) a guy who can do the job. One look at the highest paid players in the NFL will support this fact; it’s a list littered with QBs. But part of the equation is also tied to supply and demand. Sometimes, teams are...

Alex Smith doesn’t understand why Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers couldn’t make it work

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has been gone from San Francisco for two seasons now. Smith was one of the pieces that former 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh used to bring the organization back to prominence.

Should the Kansas City Chiefs consider a QB during free agency?

There’s one axiom that almost every football coach, analyst and fan believes about the game today: The NFL is a quarterback-driven league. If a team has a good one, they are a contender. If they don’t, they have no chance of competing for a title. Thus, landing an elite signal caller is priority No. 1 for every team. While the best place to find one is in the draft, not every...

Did Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith get disrespected in one-game QB Rankings?

Not all quarterbacks are created equally; that’s something that is apparent on a weekly basis during the NFL season. Thus, it’s important to have a signal caller who can step up and make plays when the pressure is on. It’s vital to have a quarterback that can handle the pressure of having everything on the line during one 60-minute test. That was the basis for cover32′s latest...

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith tabbed as iffy option for next 10 years

On Wednesday, cover32′s weekly Quarterback Ratings had a slightly different spin to them. Instead of just ranking all of the league’s current signal callers from best to worst, each of the 32 starters was graded based on how good of a prospect they are for the next 10 years. It made for an interesting list, as some of the game’s top passers fell toward the bottom because they...

Should the Kansas City Chiefs consider a QB in the 2015 NFL Draft?

Right now, the Kansas City Chiefs appear set at the quarterback position. Alex Smith is entrenched as the starter, continuing his development into what the team hopes will be the long-term answer at the most-important position in football. Given the way Smith has struggled at times, however, that remains anything but a sure bet. He’s still primarily a dink-and-dunk quarterback...
