He absolutely has been playing behind a beat up oline, especially after we lost Morse and LDT and playing at an elite level on top of that, but he himself would tell you the two throws that he missed at the end of the game were huge, the first one over the middle where he sailed it over the WR's head after Shazier went to the outside and our guy went to the inside might have been a TD. Then the obvious TD miss that again sailed over his head, those were huge and that can't be blamed on anyone else but Smith. Smith also doesn't get a pass....

LDT was playing elite. That guy is going to be an elite guard going forward in this league.

You missed my point. Aaron Rodgers is out for most of the season with a broken collarbone because his offensive line didn't do its job. Smith's isn't doing their job either, and you're obviously missing Smith's hero plays among the plays you disapprove of. The important thing is that Smith lived to play another down, and three starting-caliber interior offensive linemen have had another week to heal. Meanwhile, the Packers are done.

 

Smith's been making lemonade out of lemons for weeks now. Everyone around him played badly, but you singled him out. In case you missed it, the Packers lost their entire season because their quarterback did exactly what you expect Smith to do.

 

Let me see if I got this; Alex overthrows his receivers so the big, mean football men won't break his bones?

 

Your point is lost on your incessant references to GB and Rodgers. Making lemonade out of lemons is in the job description. When he does it, I praise him. Missing wide-the-fuck open receivers is pinching off a turd in said lemonade which I will refuse to drink. But hey, if you're into it...

LDT at the time when signed, I saw a lot of head scratching going on for the price signed. Thing is, they jumped ahead of the market and saw what we had in him. A few weeks later you had G's signing for exponentially much more than LDT and we see just how well he is doing now since especially being out. This was one time that getting them locked in early, as well as other OL helped us. Just wish we had done the same for Houston and Berry too.

This is how Smith's contract was. When he signed it it was much higher because they knew that the market was going to go up for quarterbacks and a lot of quarterbacks were due for extensions or signing. So now the average of his contract was 20th or below. At the time, it looked pretty high and some people remember that so people don't. Now, the backloaded part of next year is higher, but overall the average was lower than a lot of people view it. It worked well for Smith's agent because he was able to say that he got a good contract and it worked out for the Chiefs because it was less than what the rest of the market would get and this year and next was easy enough to get out of if they wanted/want to.

Dorsey had some real issues with contracts mainly because he waited to long and some of the players ended up being POed and all of them had to pay top dollar to get deals done. His contracts with Smith and LDT were both how it should be done.

MLoe, do you have any more "inside skinny" on why Dorsey was fired?

You are relatively new here and I only come to this message board. I was wondering if anyone at Scouts had any other insights?

I wasn't jumping your ass.  I laughed at what you said and stated you were sticking to your agenda/opinion no matter what.  I'm not stating anything outlandish here.

 

The facts are we are 5-1 against the toughest schedule in the league and all 6 games we faced a legit QB. 

 

If you're really going to try and say the Patriots suck and won't make the playoffs to back up your Alex Smith opinion, history itself is going to prove you wrong.

FO has Indy with the league’s easiest schedule so far and its toughest from now on. KC toughest so far, 31st on out https://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/teameff

Don't open that can of worms. LOL. It became WWIII on Scout board.  I was REALLY po'ed when it happened and after Clark didn't offer any explanation even dumped my season tickets. As the dust settled I only heard the rumblings like everyone else. Dorsey wasn't good with contracts, had some issues with veteran players and didn't communicate very well with his staff.

Each day since I've made my peace with it and do think Veach will hopefully provide something similar on draft day with more upside in other areas. It's still a huge risk considering all the veteran leaders we will likely send packing this offseason. I think Clark Hunt is a very intelligent calculating owner that had what he thought were legit reasons. I can respect that. But as with everyone else the real frustration is we are still looking for any insight as to why. Maybe there will be a book one day.

Thanks...Yeah, everyone here was about the same. Total WTF?

Chiefs are pretty darn secretive anyway, much less things like this.

That was the head scratcher with Dorsey. Make Houston and Berry the highest paid players at their position and still piss them off. That is hard to do.

It almost like the Steelers have Alex Smith shell-shocked. I admit, personally James Harrison worries me. He seems to not care if he hurts someone or not, and I don't like him. This is all from my perspective, looking at it from the outside of course, he could be an ok person.

The cheap shot Alex took was awful. The league should suspend that guy to make a point.
