Re: 49ers agree to trade Alex Smith to Chiefs
Some months back this pundit spat out this fact that the Chiefs have not drafted a QB who has STARTED for them since Todd Blackledge.
Smith makes [at least] four former San Fran QB's since 1990 (Montana, Bono, Grbac).
As far as availability/choices/moves go this is probably the best the Chiefs could do. Considering the Chiefs lack of offensive threats and their solid D, a 'game manager' like Smith may be a solid fit to maximize thier limited winning potential.
It will be interesting to see how Smith fares in Reid's system on an offense which will probably be on par with the 49ers during his first three years in the league.
