Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 7-of-9 passes for 49 yards and a touchdown in the team's preseason opener. What It Means: Mahomes was the third quarterback through the rotation in his NFL debut, entering the game in the second quarter after Alex Smith and Tyler Bray. The rookie dropped a dime to Demarcus Robinson for a 41-yard gain down the right sideline on his first drop back, but it was called back on a penalty. It was a relatively quiet performance the rest of the way, but he led a short field goal drive in the third and capitalized on a blocked punt...

Alex Smith asked about Colin Kaepernick, says a lot has changed since they were teammates

Alex Smith was asked a number of questions at his Wednesday news conference. The longest answer he gave was to the question about Colin Kaepernick. Sam Mellinger asked the Kap question for this piece in the Star. I grabbed some video of Alex’s response which you can watch above or read the quotes via the Chiefs below. Q: Do you have any thoughts on Colin Kaepernick’s situation since you used to play with him? SMITH: “A lot changed in a few years obviously since I had been gone and came here. Everything that has gone on since is certainly not something I saw coming knowing Kap. My...

Chiefs 2nd preseason game: Alex Smith gets the 1st half, Patrick Mahomes gets the 3rd quarter

Chiefs 2nd preseason game: Alex Smith gets the 1st half, Patrick Mahomes gets the 3rd quarter

The Kansas City Chiefs will see their quarterback of the future for another full quarter, according to KC Chiefs coach Andy Reid who told the press after Wednesday’s practice his plan for playing time this Saturday against the Bengals. Alex Smith will play first half Saturday, Patrick Mahomes will play the third quarter, and Tyler Bray will play the fourth, per Andy Reid.— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) August 16, 2017 So, it sounds like the Chiefs will get to see Mahomes with the second team if Alex Smith and the first team are playing the entire first half. That’s a step up from...

Alex Smith’s agent says, “He’s as tough as an old boot”

Alex Smith’s agent says, “He’s as tough as an old boot”

I recently had an opportunity to interview NFL super-agent Tom Condon on “The Fuzzcast,” and towards the end of the interview, I asked him about one of his clients, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith. My question was what he tells someone like Smith when his team drafts the quarterback of the future. I found his comments rather interesting: “Alex Smith? I don’t have to give him any advice,” Condon said. “He knows exactly what to do, and he’s been in some really tough situations before, and he’s as tough as an old boot. And so he knows just what he’s got to do, and he’ll play...

Chiefs rewatch: 25 thoughts on the first preseason game

Chiefs rewatch: 25 thoughts on the first preseason game

Friday’s preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers was a mostly positive experience for the 90 players on the Kansas City Chiefs roster. Here are my observations from the game by quarter. First Quarter 1. I mentioned in my training camp notebook the other day that Alex Smith is trying to put the ball in places he normally doesn’t. Sure, the aggressive shot to Tyreek Hill was a positive sign, but the best thing I saw from the work they’ve done in camp was something else. I saw Smith throw with a little more anticipation and a slightly quicker trigger, surely a byproduct of being...

Chris Conley’s diving grab is the play of the day at KC Chiefs training camp

We are not out at KC Chiefs training camp today - back on Monday! - so we’re following along with the tweets from on the scene in St. Joe.

49ers vs. Chiefs preseason: 6 winners, 4 losers | Arrowhead Pride Alex Smith came out Friday night and on his first play, threw a 32-yard pass to Tyreek Hill. That had to feel really good given to the endless “but he doesn’t throw the ball down the field” chatter we so often hear in Kansas City. But I’ve never been a naysayer in that regard. I know Smith can throw the ball down to me. What jumped out to me was his 10-yard scramble.
