We take another look at what the addition of Eric Bieniemy to the Chiefs as offensive coordinator could mean for the offense next season.
The NFL’s Divisional playoff games definitely lived up to the hype this weekend with three great games. The Tennessee Titans were easily outmatched by the New England Patriots, but the rest of the action was fun football to watch. The Pittsburgh Steelers falling to the Jacksonville Jaguars in a shootout is probably the most unexpected ending to a game this weekend.
The Kansas City Chiefs can take a lot of hope with the way these games turned out this weekend. In three of the four games on Wild Card weekend, the team with the weaker QB ended up winning and heading to the conference championship. This means that there is more reason to believe the Chiefs should be able to get a good return for Alex Smith. Teams have show that they don’t have to have an elite QB to make it to the conference title game. We will see over the coming weeks how much the Chiefs can get for Smith.

Alex Smith is also headed back to the Pro Bowl after Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers decided not to participate. Smith is the first alternate so he will be playing in two weeks. It is probably going to be the last time you will see him in a Chiefs helmet. Smith has been a lot of things for the Chiefs over the years. With his best pro season ever this year, how underappreciated he has become is even more evident. The Chiefs will head into 2018 with a new young signalcaller at the helm most likely, but they wouldn’t be in great shape to succeed with him without Smith.
