Quarterback Alex Smith was named the Kansas City Chiefs Most Valuable Player and running back Kareem Hunt was named the teams Rookie of the Year. Smith threw for over 4,000 yards for the first time in his career and Kareem Hunt led all running backs in the NFL in rushing by gaining 1,327 yards and accounting for 1,782 yards from scrimmage.
Alex Smith threw 26 TDs but only had 5 INTs. Smith’s 104.7 rating was a quantum leap better than his career rating of 87.4 and also led all league QBs in that category.
Start – Bench – Cut
The Rich Eisen .Sports Talk Show offered an interesting game of sorts… so I’ll present you with your own chance to respond to this game. If I offered you these three ex-Chiefs QB options A) JoeMontana, B) Matt Cassel, C) Todd Blackledge, to “Start or Bench or Cut” who would you place in each of those positions? That was purposely an easy example because I imagine most of us would Start: Montana, Bench: Cassel, and Cut Blackledge.
With that said… who would you Start, Bench, and Cut, among the following ex-Chief QBs, Trent Green, Bill Kenney, and Alex Smith? BTW, Bill Kenney played for the Chiefs throughout most of the 1980s with 106 appearance, 66 starts, and ranks 4th all-time in Chiefs passing yards.
Still, I’d start Green, Bench Smith and Cut Kenney.
So… on the flip side… try this one called, “Best Chiefs Backups” – Mike Livingston, Nick Floes, Ron Jaworski?
