Good QBs make O lines better. Defenses have no fear of the passing games against us. Get Mahomes throwing downfield and watch how everybody will think the O line and running game have improved.
I think they are getting better at that. Remember they have ran a number of pound it plays when fearing the passing game was not an issue. First and goal on the 1 when they pounded it 4 times and couldn't get a yard. That is hard to pin on Smith.
I do agree though. A down field passing game will make it a lot easier for the line. Especially between the 10s.
