Re: 49ers Trade Alex Smith
I'm sort of in the Vinny camp here. I think if anything, the Chiefs got the better end of the deal in terms of value.
Starting quality QB's don't grow on trees. They have a certain value. I think the Chiefs ultimately are declared the victors in this trade.
I also don't get the AS hate in here. Sure, he isn't Tom Brady. Name a QB that is readily available via any method that is better today than Alex Smith is?
He has actually made me a believer and I think Reid has his starter for the next 5-8 yrs and he can win with him. Like Schaub, he is a piece not a franchise QB. But all in all, I like this and the Chiefs just became a contender in my eyes.
