Re: 49ers Trade Alex Smith
Sounds about right to me. It's a market driven price. If you don't have a QB you will over pay for a guy who is an upgrade to what you have. Smith can play in a wco. Reid will have tons of 3-5 step drops and the Chiefs have a good running game. He doesn't need a big arm in this system and is athletic enough to scamper when needed. When you can't get ideal, you get real. I think they figured they could stay with the status quo and have another year of bad quarterbacking, bring in a rookie and take another year of beatings and rookie mistakes, or trade for Smith and quite possibly contend for the playoffs next season. The Chiefs have quite a bit of talent...they just need a QB. Smith is their Schaub.
