PS - there isn't a good argument Smith has accomplished more than Schaub.
By making the trade Reid assured that the Chiefs would get a QB (Smith) who lead his team to a NFC championship game just 2 yrs ago. Smith also lead the 49ers in the last 2 mins to a comeback win over the Saints to reach that game. The 49ers were just a couple of ST micues from making the SB that yr.

If Smith had become a FA he could've signed with any team. This assured that Smith would be a Chief for the next few yrs.

BTW, when has Schaub accomplished anything near what I stated above about Smith? You might want to remove those rose colored glasses and take another sip of that battle red kool-aid.
