Chiefs’ Alex Smith is the politest quarterback in the NFL

We already know that Alex Smith is the most handsome quarterback. Now we know he’s also the most polite.

There’s a story floating around from Aaron Rodgers’ appearance on Bill Simmons new show Any Given Wednesday. Rodgers was talking about the 49ers decision to draft Alex Smith over him and suggested this as a reason why:

“The story that I heard, and I don’t know if it’s true or not, was that (then 49ers coach) Mike Nolan said that when he saw Alex open the car door for his mom, he knew that was the quarterback he wanted.”

Rodgers said that his Mom didn’t go to his meeting with the 49ers so he didn’t have a chance to show how polite he was.

At last, Chiefs fans can say their quarterback is nicer than yours.
