Smith went 1-13?

Those wr's were terrible. They couldn't get away from terrible Giants db's. Davis, Walker and dumps to Gore were the only guys getting any separation.

His best attribute is that he knows how not to get in the way if the team is loaded with talent. You can go with that type of quarterback in a rebuilding period, but it makes no sense to give up significant assets to get a placeholder. This is Kevin Kolb and Andrew Cassell all over again. In fact, I'd say that this is worse because at least those guys had the illusion of untapped potential. This is more like the Carson Palmer trade. Old starter who is no longer in the plans gets dealt for a highway robbery return. At least Carson Palmer used to be good once.

Harbaugh knew what he was doing. He drafted a replacement as soon as he could and jettisoned Smith the first chance that he got.
The fact that you call Smith a placeholder shows how little you know about the relative value of a QB. At worst, Smith is an average QB, but that doesn't really do it justice as to how incredibly difficult it is to find even an average QB in the league. A few select QB's become Tom Brady or Peyton Manning. More of them become Alex Smith or Andy Dalton, and the vast majority of them become Blaine Gabbert, Christian Ponder, or even worse, JaMarcus Russell or David Carr.

If you can get your hands on an Alex Smith, you mind as well do it. If the Ravens just won with Joe Flacco, any team can definitely win with Alex Smith as its QB, as long as it has the right talent around him. But then again, that's what you can say about every QB in the league, including Brady or Manning.

Also, if you've watched Carson Palmer play at all the this season, you would know that he's still every bit the QB that he was when he was in Cincy. The guy can play.

To be fair, his WR's weren't great until Crabtree caught on fire

Chiefs love 49er quarterbacks.

Montana gave them their post season run since Super Bowl 4, played great 2 seasons there.
Bono gave them a 13-3 season in 1995
Grbac was solid for a couple of years from 1997-2000.

Maybe Smith will have some decent success, with Andy Reid and his pass happy offense.

You know, regarding Elvis Grbac...I have no clue why the play calling on this drive completely fell apart

That's true, they were simply awful in the NFC Championship game last year. Alex certainly didn't have his best game either, but to blame him for the loss? Ridiculous.

He either could hear the call or his headset wasn't working.

And they certainly should have anyways with the play of alot of guys. Didn't think Smith was too bad, it sucks they had a couple dropped punts.

Looking at the underwhelming prospects and the horrible FA group..this was a pretty solid move by the Chiefs.
