Watching practice, Alex Smith just seems to have something other Chiefs QB's haven't had in a while...focus??? Attention to detail?

Andy Reid and John Dorsey bet the house on Alex Smith this offseason, so this is the sort of feedback you like to hear in OTAs. It's early and lots of guys get praised this time of year who will fail to impress later on. But Smith is doing all the right things early for the Chiefs.

From everything I've read and heard, Alex commands respect. Fasano I think said when Alex is in the huddle, all eyes on him. No question he's already the leader on offense, as most QBs are.

Agree. Bowe, the backs, and TEs don't concern me a bit. But I do hope there can be a WR2 that can step it up and truly earn a solid role.

Yeah, Alex has been a huge addition to the team. It is crazy to think we could have gotten Geno with our 2nd pick, but the Geno hype train from me was really just me wanting a franchise QB and forcing Geno into that role, kind of.

Bowe said that he's never played with a QB like Alex Smith who is so demanding in the huddle. Called Alex Smith the team leader. Also sounds like Alex Smith already has most of the new offense down, telling guys where they are supposed to be and what they are supposed to be doing.

Man I can't wait for the season to start. I don't care if being enthusiastic has left me let down in the past. I won't hold it back this year either, and I really, really have a good feeling about this year.

I really love this attitude.. thanks. I have been reading all around on KC forums. Lots of different perspectives.. and some are downright miserable. I was shocked to see so many defeated fans... as I think there is much to be optimistic about.

Failed attempts in the past does not equal failed attempt this time. Lots of changes occurred.. and this team is looking good.

You know what else....Alex ain't good enough to overcome garbage at nearly every position like a Rodgers, Brady, or Manning (they always atleast had a good WR or two), but let's say the running game is top notch, the TE's are are very solid with depth, the OL is extremely capable, the playcalling is proven, he's got a slot toy he's never had who's produced decently despite poor circumstances, and a true #1 WR....even if worse case scenario happens and WR #2 is the worst in the league, will that hold Alex back from being able to lead a very productive offense?

Despite the easy schedule, you can even point to what KC with Cassel was able to do in 2010 with crap for a #2 WR...that was unable to be duplicated in following years, partly because Cassel was exposed, but mostly because of poor preseason preparation, injuries, and coaching issues.

I'm struggling to name a team off the top of my head that is at or above average at:

WR1,WR2,slot, TE's, RB's, and OL. KC looks to be right at or above average at all but WR2 (TE's are average, but as a group look to be about top half of the league).

Lol it will just make this season even sweeter when I can rub it in the faces of those who say things like "we've heard this from you fans the last couple of years" as if this isn't the same talented core with even more surrounding talent, a infinite times better coaching staff, and a veteran QB that people will compare to Matt Cassel when he is really much much better.

Don't apologize for being optimistic or excited. I think most of us are, including me (believe it or not!). I don't have grandiose expectations like some, but it will be nice to see fairly competent QB play and coaching for a change. The last few years have been miserable!

The Kansas City Chiefs are the first team in the AFC West to wrap of their offseason work. They had their mandatory minicamp this week and do not assemble again until they begin training camp in late July. The other three teams in the division have their mandatory minicamps next week.

Tyler Bray has impressed during Kansas City's OTAs.
Kansas City coach Andy Reid is excited about undrafted free-agent, quarterback Tyler Bray. He was expected to go in the mid-rounds. But because of worries about his overall inconsistencies he went undrafted. Yet, Bray was strong this spring with the Chiefs. He has a very strong chance of sticking on the 53-man roster as the No. 3 quarterback, where he would start the process of a being a developmental player. Ill tell you, he did a nice job. He did a really nice job, Reid told reporters in Kansas City on Thursday. You never know until you get them here. Hes in a good room, so hes got good examples around him as players. Hes got coaches that have played the game and the position in there. Hes embraced that and really focused in. The fact is that he did a nice job and improved every day. He was a bit like a sponge just taking everything in. I was impressed.
Running back Jamaal Charles ran for 1,509 yards last season. Yet, he knows his job description is changing with Reid as his coach. Charles will still carry the ball often, but Reid likes getting his running backs involved in the passing game. I know my role in my mind will be doing lots of stuff with the offense, Charles said. Im like (Brian) Westbrook and (LeSean) McCoy as far as how I fit into (Reids) offense ... I definitely need to do more studying and knowing the scheme of the defense, especially playing a position like wide receiver. I have to go in there and try to read the defense. Last year, I didnt have any catches out of the backfield. I feel like this year it will be more.
New cornerback Sean Smith said most of the defensive backs will train together in the Miami area during the coming weeks.

Two things that stand out...

Certainly seems like the Stanzi project is over

Not to point out the obvious, but it can't be less. Though if our QB's last year could have been marginally accurate...he should have had SOME catches.
