“He’s been everything that we thought he was,” Chiefs quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy said of Smith, via the Kansas City Star. “He’s a true professional. He’s in his [playbook] every day. He’s always asking questions, trying to get better. He’s being a leader for the other [quarterbacks] as well.”
Alex Smith went from a bust to being traded for a pick at the top of the 2nd round in this past draft. Why? Because he excels as a game manager and won’t screw things up. Don’t the Chiefs need a guy that can win games for them at this point though?
