Kerry. Sometimes you're getting one and two yards is like passing mean Alex Smith averages seven yards pans dad they just going on everybody exact exactly so what you get if you get close your averaging and you get the couple once wanted to go. What you had to force pass situation. And we know that's not. Where Alex Smith's strengths are he said you had a running game staff that would those all of the blade portals has more carries over
box there make announcement Picchu dark. What was this team unbelievable time Alex Smith's life. When he was only getting four guys in the box there drop at seven and a coverage they were so worried
Mitchell plays from Spencer ware is taken away any running ability from Alex Smith . Add on to the fact that you remove Jamaal Charles in the equation. And the chiefs are one of the worst running teams in the NFL I agree with Torres you're gonna need to be able to run the ball I don't care by two ball coming back. Spencer ware is resurgence or Alex Smith finally decided that he's gonna force the issue on the ball more I don't care how it happens but they're gonna need

him the blueprint not it will forever we will use along with Alex Smith is your quarterback. The followed numbers blueprint that diverted have top ten quarterback play that elite quarterback last year they got. Good
thread Monday after the chief ridiculous win over the falcons are about Alex Smith here for a second. To me Alex Smith was good. Which was the absolute minimum he could be given the circumstances of playing the falcons. He wasn't great. But he was he was he was what I expected and hoped him to be. And I get why that doesn't matter because they want. But let's not go insane here in terms of big picture Alex Smith analysis he was 125275. Yards touchdowns no picks. Quarterbacks averaged 96 against the falcons and he was below average based on what the falcons have allowed this year they lost their third best pass rusher. And their number one defensive player. And now Marcus Trufant their best coverage guy the falcons defense was horrible. Alex Smith was. What nick fools was against the colts he took advantage of a terrible defense I give him credit for that. I don't draw any sort of greens conclusion but ouch that's going to be able to do that now against the Broncos or do that now against the titans even do that short week against the raiders at all. I hope he goes to meet the falcons defense is a huge part of the story of Alex Smith's success and by the way I don't think that takes away from announcement success. I just think that's being not so. I can't disagree with that I think the yesterday Alan Smith it would he needed to against that defense they ask in the past 25 times completed 21 of those passes. It was one of those games like saint yea ago that it was a high volume kind of passing game. I think a lot of time with Alex Smith because of war over now also the core position people failed to include context and nuance and the chiefs. All are what one of the bottom seventeen in the NFL rushing the football like game wasn't Alex Smith needs to go win us the game release them all into perspective and you've got deep and special teams fully understanding that. So right now the chiefs I would say Andy that they've above seven running game third number one receiver is out and at two passing options. Bad trust tells the entire retail I don't know logical got confidence in Chris Conley or Albert Wilson as a thorn in the bowl lie. I don't know what Moore Alex Smith at a dating yesterday's game I think you played as well as he could yesterday given the game plan the scheme in the ports around them. I. 32 against the pass so it been a big deal if you played poorly against alien bride which didn't play for the gives it an entity that effort. Being efficient moving the ball down the field ten yards an attempt that the odds that you can live with that Alex Smith is gonna I think he played as close as capacities boss. This is you could say this is unfair it's the reality
that's the nature of playing that's the king you win was that Alex Smith . Of course of course you can when it that doubts that the more interesting conversation to me is how. Applicable is that version of Alex Smith would you're not playing the worst defense in the NFL by far I would say from this point. Not very applicable at all and that is by that is the concern going forward 2000 chief's office on the site census carries in the fumbles his club oversaw what that. If you fumble yesterday I think part of it without Smith is that the chiefs don't turn the ball over that we made the ball but the biggest deal the world because. That's just not part of what they do that was bad I thought Alex Smith out of a person with a 100% out Smith to dating game against the colts playoff game. It's impossible roster if you don't like that was that one time down serial gave yesterday was like 93%. Of it that was the same. On Alex Smith to play against Oakland that was the same Alex Smith was the wasn't going out there and not trying to prove 350 yards. He officiate move the chains allow your defense to make plays that's what they did yesterday against Atlanta and it worked yesterday did. Fed Alex Smith you can with that's not balanced with the you have the big problems with. Agreed I thought but it was good and
12/05 4pm - Royals Hot Stove, Funny Audio from Chiefs Game, Travis Kelce, Chiefs Offense

They also react to what Danny finds as "hilarious" audio from the Chiefs game before the conversation goes off the rails. They end the hour with some thoughts on Travis Kelce and the Chiefs offense.
touchdown of the Packers game this was BS studio up today with James Brown . During the she scared tell you here this is hilarious inside your. Did this no place high majority now put your data
always have some little quick jam so you're telling me that CBS. James brown and Boomer Esiason are normally baking. Raced based. Innuendo. On wide wide receivers. I don't know that this could never happen for.
about this tech sites expense reserves six. That was blatant racism by James Brown I can't believe you're letting him get away with us. If that was the color comment about a black players they ever
12/05 3pm - Alex Smith, Lack of Chiefs Running Game, Ryan Lilja
In Hour 2, the guys get into what they saw from Alex Smith and also discuss what has happened to the lack of Chiefs running game. They're then joined by Ryan Lilja to recap the Chiefs win.
I don't think that anything that I say here is criticism. Of Alex Smith I just want an old. What people have an expectation going into again. And then those expectations are acts but not exceeded. What are you supposed to do in your praise. Coming out of the game. Because to me. He was going to be it's the 32. Ranked pass defense in the NFL. Who has just lost their horror best pass rusher. And their undisputed. Past. Cover guy in Marcus Trufant an Adrian Kleber. And Alex Smith had at least statistically against what quarterbacks have done against Atlanta so far this year. Slightly below average teams know Woodruff like 296 against them he threw for 275. He had the one touchdown he had no picks he only had four and completions he missed the throw to Chris Connelly and Spencer ware back to back on the drive where they they punted. The sponsor where one would have been a touchdown column if ultimate about a play on the ball like Alex Smith was good to very good in that game and just like that Indianapolis game. Where a lot of people put qualifiers on
that's why woods. In regards to review nick full spark against Indianapolis. Alex Smith I think played two ads closes his capacity as you as the McCain in this game. The estimates of 25 times he
opportunity if he doesn't make it that is some major referendum when Alex Smith and where he's at. I allowed Smith played well in that game was it one of his best performance as well I don't think it was that I also don't think they asked him to go on and do it it was insane Diego it wasn't a high volume kind of passing kind of day. They ask him to do the same thing they'd advance and do against Oakland. That's Alice at that I that I saw at Oakland that's I think you saw yesterday. Be efficient move the ball on the field don't turn the ball over our defense and special teams will then make the place to go out there when it now you could ask the question of is that Alex Smith enough. That's a different argument but it regards to how he played yesterday I does don't know what more you can expect
12/05 2pm - Chiefs Statement, Eric Berry, Duffy a Trade Candidate? College FB Min

it like that matters too much anymore because it's very clear. How Andy Reid has done it'd Clark Hunt gets credit for going out and getting Andy Reid . Andy Reid has created a culture where. You wanna go for when Jerry Maclin chose to sign your Alex Smith was flying for eight theory guys have resigning here. You haven't heard one word one leaked out. From the chiefs of guys not liking Andy Reid at least among any sort of marquee. Player that's suspect and Donald Stephenson. At some issues like that going out you lose a guy who is also fighting for play playing time is gonna disgruntled with his rule with in the office that wasn't a culture thing. That was a problem there sell. The culture at arrowhead is undeniably. A hundred times better than it was what I think gets lost in the Scott Pioli conversation. Is that so your best players were actually acquired by Scott deal would it as a football personnel man he stuffed with Matt Cassel . He was a terrible and the media. He created a culture of paranoia. He craves power too much so he didn't hire
Scott Pioli did I never had a problem with the acquiring of Matt Cassel I would have acquired Matt Cassel at the time. He was a nice quarterback prospect he looked well in new England and it was willing I was willing to take the chance on it. I think worst god Juli lost with Matt Cassel was he was unwilling to admit the mistake in the move along for Matt Cassel as you let Matt Cassel get him fired. Right yeah absolutely and it was type thing where eight cents at the time and what's also what history has shown to me that. No it outside of the patriot like in New England has been able to recreate the patriot way quote unquote elsewhere. Scott feel we did everything logical for first on general manager. There's Romeo Cornell lenders. You don't that later obviously there's Matt Matt Cassel would. Were able each IE he tried to recreate the one place that he do. Totally logical thing. But once you saw
