Alex Smith Holding Back The Chiefs?

Ever since that made headlines yesterday, it’s left a real salty taste in my mouth. While yes Alex contributed to the loss of the Chiefs, it wasn’t the only reason why. Let’s look at this a little closer, shall we?

The Difference Maker

Alex admitted that throwing that interception was the difference maker. I couldn’t agree more. While this interception did was a big part of the loss, I feel that it wasn’t the only reason why. It does take more than one play to lose a game.

Play Calling

Head Coach Andy Reid admitted that he was the one that called the disastrous play which caused the turnover. Alex couldn’t call an audible to get out of the situation, and it ended badly. I have no Idea what Reid was thinking when he called this play, but I agree it was bad. This is another thing that cost the Chiefs the game.

The Offense

Where do I start? I’ve seen other Chiefs games, and it’s always the same: the offense doesn’t perform as well as the defense. Why? Part of the reason is Alex Smith (I like Alex, and it kills me to say this), he’s mediocre at best as a quarterback. Jamaal Charles is still out (which adds to the problem), and the rest of the offensive line isn’t much better. In my opinion, we need to do a weed, seed, and develop on the offensive line.

The Defense

I don’t feel that the defense is apart of the problem. The Chiefs defense is Super Bowl Quality, hands down. The defensive line just has to keep up the good work.

Injuries

Dee Ford, Charcandrick West, Marcus Peters, Justin Houstin, Jeremy Maclin, Derrick Johnson, Marcus Peters, Dontari Poe, and Tamba Hali. These are just some of the injuries that the Chiefs had for the week 11 game. Another contributing factor in the loss of the week 11 game.

Conclusion

In conclusion, it just wasn’t one thing or person that caused the loss of the week 11 game. It wasn’t just Alex Smith.
