Why does Alex Smith get a break?

43

It seems like every Chiefs' fan gives Alex Smith a free pass, and makes it sound as if he's free of errors to this point in the season. All the problems that happened on offense are not his fault, it's a combination of the offensive line not giving him time on every single play that he has to check the ball down, throw it away, or run with it. And when it's not the line's fault, it's the receivers' fault not getting completely open on every single play (When Bowe specializes in out-muscling/out-jumping defenders). When will Chiefs' fans hold Smith accountable for anything? Maybe question his lack of willingness to put the ball in his position for his receivers to make plays? His inability to get rid of the ball quicker when he sees the blitz coming, or audible to a different play? It seems like everyone trashes Bowe and the offensive line, but Alex Smith is the golden boy who can do no wrong. When does that change? It's annoying, unfair, and becoming a common theme.
