    I want to say that no matter what happens whether it's a 3rd or a 2nd rounder:

    Jesus Christ Andy Reid what the **** are you doing?

    Seems like Reid believes in Smith.

    Smith has accomplished more than Schaub. How much did Gary give up to get Schaub?

    Two 2nds and a change in draft spots in the 1st rd. This makes the price Reid paid for Schaub seem about right. Or is it OK when the Texans make a trade like this, but when a team like the Chiefs make a trade like the Smith trade they're somehow stupid?

    So using records from this year, it could be as high as pick #48, and as low as pick #80.

    2014 2nd/3rd for a much better QB than what was available in the draft, translates to a 2013 3rd/4th. Good move, imo.

    Other than a random chance to slag Schaub, how about looking at the circumstances. Smith was going to be cut or be paid a gigantic salary to ride the pine. The Niners had no leverage. Schaub was dirt cheap playing on a rookie contract and Atlanta had already received multiple offers for him. Kind of a different situation.

    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.

    I didn't criticize the trade. I commented on your blind hatred for Schaub.

    LOL - yeah, says you. Apparently any team doesn't include the one he led to an NFL championship game.

    They have the same playoff record. 1-1. Other than that Schaub has Smith beaten across the board as Blake has listed.

    I thought Smith's playoff record was 3-1? They got to the championship game last year on won both their games this year.

    So 3-1 and a Superbowl appearance is accomplishing more than Shaub IMO.

    Kaepernick was the QB in the 2012 playoffs and SB.

    {///Qoute} Give me the 1-1 that includes a confrence championship and was only a couple of fumbled PR's from a SB. Over a guy who got his team just as far in the playoffs as a rookie 3rd string QB did the yr before. Despite Schaub playing with a healthy AJ and the DPOY (Watt).

    Carry on with your blind fandom, I'm sure I wont be changing your mind.

    The only thing I will say that is different between the Smith and Schaub trade is that Schaub was an untapped young potential filled QB. Smith may be untapped, but tomorrow will be 29. Schaub was 25.

    With that logic one might say give me Yates with a 1-1 record that was a couple of special team fumbles from the AFC Championship.

    Or maybe, just maybe, Gary overpaid for Schaub?

    Not that I blame Gary for overpaying after having to watch HWNSNBM for yrs.
