What if KC Chiefs' Andy Reid and Alex Smith aren't a good fit?

USA TODAY Sports

Let's consider another perspective on the Andy Reid and Alex Smith marriage.

As a Kansas City Chiefs fan, I can tell you it's easy to buy into what the Chiefs are doing.

Andy Reid is an established, veteran head coach. Alex Smith is a heady, accurate passer who fits well in Reid's system. The defense is loaded with first round picks. Jamaal!

It's easy to to buy into the Chiefs. And I'm not alone. They're a popular worst-to-first pick. They've been a trendy playoff pick in each of the last three seasons. At least a few national media folks have tabbed the Chiefs as a playoff contender in each of those seasons.

Like I said, it's easy to buy into them.

With that said, let's also remember that only once in the last three years have those trendy playoff pickers been proven correct. Despite what I believe what the future holds for the KC Chiefs in 2013, it's important to have other perspectives.

Enter Evan Silva of Rotoworld.

He had some opinions on the 2013 KC Chiefs on Twitter today. Some very strong opinions. And they weren't very optimistic about the Reid and Smith era.

Obviously many of us will disagree with some of what he said, but I think it's good that we at least consider perspectives that significantly vary from many of our own.

Your comments here will also help me with a series I'm working on, looking at some of the Chiefs burning questions entering this season. The first one is on this topic -- how Reid will tweak his offense, if at all, to fit Smith's strengths.
