Alex Smith knows he'll likely play elsewhere next year

Alex Smith knows he'll likely play elsewhere next year

The Chiefs have a ton of great weapons on offense so it'll be fun to see how Smith uses them throughout the season.

Smith had an awesome performance in the Chiefs' Week 1 win over the New England Patriots.

Smith has a contract that runs through the 2018 season, and if the Chiefs do get rid of him after this year, it would nearly certainly come through a trade, and if Smith continues to look the way he did against the Patriots, his trade value will be sky-high by the time the end of the season rolls around. Of course, Smith is again trying to prove himself.

The Chiefs selected a promising young quarterback in the 2017 NFL Draft in Patrick Mahomes. What he hasn't had - until now - is offensive continuity (he'll be playing in the same scheme in consecutive National Football League seasons for the first time) and a robust receiving corps. While Smith has never finished a season in Kansas City passing for fewer than 3,265 yards, the 49ers are still trying to figure out who their franchise quarterback might be.

49ers legend Jerry Rice was not shy about criticizing Smith during the QB's time with the franchise. Smith said he looked forward to playing on the road more than being in front of the home crowd during those tough times. "I mean, I knew we were potentially gonna take a quarterback", Smith said of the Mahomes pick. "I do know that the situation I was in was not the 'right way.'" . "But there's a lot of games where you walk out of and you feel great and maybe you played lights-out, but the numbers didn't match it, but you did everything you could to help the team win".

The insane part is that Smith strongly believes that he's only going to get better this season. "They brought him in, drafted him".

He disclosed that he will hold a series of high level meetings on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in NY later this month. Nafees Zakria noted that terrorism was an worldwide issue and sought coordination of each and every stakeholder to defeat it.

"It was hard", Smith said of watching the Chiefs taking a quarterback. He said he would stand on the sideline trying to figure out his completion percentage and other statistics because, for many fans and analysts, that was all that was looked at.

"Yeah, you know, for sure it absolutely does, without a doubt", Smith said when asked if felt like 2017 was his last season in K.C. Smith shared his perspective on job security and what it is like mentoring his future replacement.

Smith was shown a video of Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre, who once said it's not his job to go out of his way to teach and then-young Aaron Rodgers.

"I just think that if you play long enough you realize how quick things can change", Smith said Wednesday. We got this window of opportunity and let's take advantage.

Will the 49ers go as far as Smith takes them in 2012?

"The whole D-line jumps out", Smith said. "He was always really, really respectful".
