    The pick in 2014 is a conditional "mid-round" pick. Not necessarily a 2nd round pick.

    KC sure likes to give up 2nd round picks for QB's, first Cassel and now Smith.

    Re: Alex Smith traded to KC (title change)

    SF is hitting on all cylinders these days. With an inexpensive QB for a another year or two, they can really build a sustainable force ...reminds me of the early Brady years.

    Smart coaches like Jim Harbaugh know how to work with what they have instead of try to force a square peg into a round hole. With Smith, Harbaugh simplified the reads to get the most out of him.

    KC's coach better understand this, or else the Smith era there is going to look a lot like the Nolan/Singletary era in SF.

    Regards,
    Chris

    How is this such a good trade for SF? What was the cap hit if they released him? Seems to me like they should have got more value in a year with such few QB prospects and free agents... Kevin Kolb went for DRC and a 2nd himself...

    Because Alex Smith sucks and should have almost no value. He's going to be awful without Harbaugh.

    I agree but looking at previous years QB trades I'm trying to understand how Cassel goes for similar compensation and Kolb goes for more? Out of the 3 doesn't Smith have the best resume at the time of trade?

    Don't you want more out of a former #1 pick which you invested stupid money in?

    I love Smith, but KC got hammered here in terms of not understanding leverage.

    SF will take whatever they can get reasonable. No-one was parting with a 1st rd pick knowing that SF would more than likely cut him if no-one bit.

    Presuming a contract extension for Smith, this is a good deal for both teams. Filling a major need with a 2nd rounder is a huge gain for KC.

    I guess.... just makes the pats front office look even better for getting similar compensation for Cassel a few years ago.

    Those of you who don't mind the salty language might want to pop on over to Chiefsplanet....

    Their displeasure is on full display.

    Alex Smith has no arm or accuracy. They aren't much better off than with Cassell. They got hosed.

    Re: Alex Smith traded to KC (title change)

    the rich got richer. SF already has the most picks in the draft and now a very high second rounder, too...I think this can be a very good draft this year and for the future for them.

    In my opinion Kansas City gave up to much.

    Cassel probably has a better arm, but saying Smith has no accuracy could not be more untrue. He completed 71% of his passes before getting benched.

    Do you blame them if this is true.

    Blame/don't blame is irrelevant to me. I view this as karma happening to a fan base that didn't give the previous regime a fair shake. They never forgave Pioli for not drafting Sanchez, and they never forgave Cassel for being traded for. They actually paid for banners and pressured the team to fire the last regime.

    The result: The next regime steps right in and trades for Alex Smith. Yes, indeed, Karma just took a big bite out of the collective ass of the Chiefs fanbase.

    In all fairness to the fans, the last regime sucks (whatever the reasons maybe), but they sucked.

    The last regime did a pretty good job in many areas, but it had a disastrous season last year. It was the kind of season that gets a lot of regimes removed. The issue isn't with that happening. The issue is with what happened almost from day one.

    Imagine being such a sick and twisted fan base that you can't forgive your team for not drafting Mark Sanchez.....

    You're assuming Smith actually fills said need. Which is questionable, at best.

    That stat is very misleading. He can't reliably complete a downfield or outside throw. Unless he only sucked in the games of his I watched over his eight year career.

    I'm telling you, San Francisco is turning into an absolute monster organization. They are already loaded, have one of the best young QB in the game, are led by one of the best coaches in the business, just cleared a bunch of cap space, and have like 5 of the first 90 picks in the draft.

    I think football is better when the Niners are good, but holy moly, they're suddenly unbelievable. Glad they're in the other conference.

    Could be. But remember that he's been in a constant state of new coaches and coordinators. Reid/Pederson will be his... what... 7th?
