Alex Smith is the veteran leader this team needs

The great Alex Smith debate never slows down does it? Just as we thought that Smith had turned a corner, a couple of poor performances has the questions about Kansas City’s quarterback as loud as ever. I have, and always will be a believer in Alex Smith. I understand the limitations he has as a quarterback, but I love the leadership and competitive spirit he brings to the team.

Smith has struggled as of late, but his first five games, and his performance in Oakland were excellent. Read my review of how Smith changed the offense for further proof. Smith has been very good much more than he has been bad this year.

I know none of us will ever agree fully on what Smith brings to this team, and that’s ok. What I do know is that Alex Smith is one of the great competitors in the sport. We have seen his drive and determination will the Chiefs to victory multiple times over the past few seasons. I truly believe this is the year Alex Smith finally hoists the Lombardi. He has this team completely focused on one goal, and I don’t think anyone will be able to stop him.

The Kansas City Chiefs are 6-3 in a season that has shown more parity than ever before. Every team in this league has holes, the Chiefs are every bit as talented as any other team in the AFC.

As always, thanks for reading Addicts. And GO CHIEFS!
