Personally, I see him as the kinda guy who probably won't screw it up for you but probably won't be good for all that much extra value himself. So basically he would be okay for a team that has a lot of other parts in place and just needs a non-trainwreck at QB to be competitive. But a bad team that needs a transformational type franchise QB, no way he can shoulder that and succeed.
I think calling Alex Smith a "non-trainwreck" is under-selling his abilities a bit. Yeah San Fran may have been stacked on both sides of the ball, but it still takes a good QB to put up decent stats, and lead the team to victories, which Smith has done the last two seasons.
At the very least, he's probably a very good game manager. It's probably not what KC needs, but it's unlikely they can do any better than Smith.
