Summary

Smith's struggles early in his career were notoriously blamed on the constant change in offensive philosophy in San Francisco. Well his first year in Andy Reid's system proved to be no problem at all. Smith set career highs with over 3300 passing yards, 431 rushing yards, and 23 touchdowns in 2014. From weeks 12-16 (Smith's final five games) the 30 year old ranked third amongst quarterbacks in fantasy points. He topped that off with one of the best games of his career in the playoffs. Against the Colts in the Wild Card round he completed 30/46 attempts for 378 yards and 4 touchdowns. Over his past three seasons he's completed 62.7% of his passes with better than a 3-1 touchdown to interception ratio. In 2014 Smith will have a second year in the offense with what should be a similar supporting cast. He lost Dexter McCluster to free agency but the team hopes to have tight end Travis Kelce back from knee injuries that cost him his rookie year. The offense should continue to focus on the short timing routes that Smith excels at. This system showcases Smith's talents better than any other but also limits big play ability, especially with the Chiefs lack of playmakers in the receiving corps. (May 1)

Chiefs | Alex Smith doesn't like Andy Dalton's deal (Sat Aug 9, 09:08 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith said he has no interest in signing a pay-as-you-go deal similar to the contract Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton just signed. 'I want to get something that's right that I'm going to play out, absolutely, and that's definitely a focus of mine,' Smith said Saturday, Aug. 9.

Our View: Smith is entering the final year of his contract with the Chiefs. The team should be concerned about signing Smith to a traditional long-term deal. Smith is a good starter, but he may not be the caliber of quarterback this team needs to contend for a championship.
