Can't remember the last time I can say that it's been a pleasure watching him ball, but what a hell of a season so far. It's going to be tough to watch him leave now, may be worth letting the rookie sit 2 years like Rogers did if he keeps this up.

OL decimated like it's been, I'd be checking too. But he's making it happen and still no picks; yet, racked up over 300 yards twice already. Smith and Hunt are league MVPs in my book so far.

Through 5 games he's been the best QB in the NFL and certainly the best in my lifetime as far as Chiefs QBs go

Trent Green says hi. Alex has been great though. Hopefully he can keep it up, win a super bowl, then ride off into the sunset while the chiefs build toward a decade or better of patriot like dominance with mahomes and hunt.

Loved Trent and he sustained it for three full seasons. But I don't even remember him being this type of playmaker vs this good of competition (we may have just beaten 4 playoff teams in 5 weeks) playing behind makeshift group of backups interior offensive linemen. Alex has transformed himself into Aaron Rodgers with all these plays he's making outside the pocket. No way he can keep this up. Right? It may be to the point teams want to just try and force him to stay in the pocket.

He didn't even do the Alex Tonight, sacking himself.  Best game I've seen him play with us.   We needed every bit of it too.  Houston is a scary good team, with an excellent QB and some top WR's for the next decade.  Sorry we lost Conley.  Demarcus, time to step up.   I'd sign Seantavius Jones tommorrow.

I've been a Alex Smith fan for a while. It's mainly because I like the underdog, and wanted him to do well every since I watched his playoff game against the Saints, when he was with the Niners. I hope he keeps this up.

Can't really blame him checking down and not really taking risks with the state of the OL, besides we don't really need them so far. He's not giving up on plays as early as he used to which is a huge plus and once the OL settles I think we could see a very new dimension in Smith's game.

It’s a tough comparison because Trent had 2 HOF offensive lineman and also was throwing to a HOF TE, lots of qb’s would have thrived in that offense.

Alex has been a man possessed, we should have drafted a first round QB years ago to inspire him!

Alex is completing an unbelievable 77 percent of his passes with an absolutely stellar 8.8 YPA. And he's top 3 in QB rushing yards. This isn't sustainable for anyone. Give Andy a ton of credit too. And clearly Mahomes for lighting this fire. But again realistically Alex is gonna come down to earth and we are going to need defense to play better. But that is almost likely as we get some starters back. This is just clearly a really good team.

I give credit to this being his contract year and having a better supporting cast that Andy Reid is using well.

I think Smith can "come to earth" by getting back to his regular "good". I don't think it's going to come down to earth by playing poorly or way too conservative. Obviously, eventually he'll throw an interception. Yards per attempt will go down. When the completion percentage goes down that might actually be attempting deeper passes than we already have. Depending on when we connect when we don't, it might coincide with even better team play.

You know what I mean. Either way, it was a contract year. His 22 million makes it so. Mahomes will be special, but if we had drafted Desean, we would call the "Watson Effect." Smith doesn't care if the "special" is the better-than-Watson Mahomes or the better-than-Mahomes Watson or some other quarterback. He's either here or not.

Between Tyreek, Kelce and Kareem defenses now are going to try and take 1-2 of those guys away and leave at least one in single coverage. And Alex is getting the ball to that guy. Heck the other WRs are getting it done too. So your exactly right we haven't had weapons that had to be accounted for like this before.
Alex is on pace for 4,500 yards, 35 TDs, 0 INTs and we are a third of the way through the season. He's just been remarkably good. This just isn't sustainable. I'll say this though. If he throws for 4,000 yards and say 27 TDs, 8 INTs. It would be the best season by a Chiefs QB ever and probably enough to win 12 plus games and have a good chance at home field advantage. Can he do this would be my question? Can he be that much better than he's ever been?
