This Regime's Most Encouraging Sign

This opinion could drastically change once we get the figures on Alex Smith's next contract, but Chiefs fans should feel extremely encouraged by the lack of progress in contract negotiations.

I know the Chiefs have spent years in quarterback turmoil, but the biggest fault of the Pioli years was his expensive, long-term commitment to a horrible quarterback. Pioli was going to sink or swim with the Patriot way, and while he brought in a lot of talent around him, Matt Cassel lost the previous regime their job.

The fact that Reid/Dorse seemingly aren't willing to pay Smith 126,000,000 McDoubles to be this team's long term quarterback shows that they aren't settling to be average at the most important position in sports. They know and understand Smith's value. They won't overpay. The lull and lack of progress is an excellent sign for Chiefs fans everywhere. Your front office isn't letting their ego or personal like for a guy get in the way of business. Let him prove it this year. If he proves you wrong, you've lost the war. If he lives to his recent numbers, he's not worth Cutler money (I can't believe "Cutler money" is a thing).
