It looks like there’s an Alex Smith interview coming. I saw this interview preview with Alex and Graham Bensinger pop up on YouTube. I’m not sure exactly when it will air. Here’s the description:
Veteran Chiefs QB, Alex Smith, invites Graham to both his Kansas City condo and to Chiefs training camp for an In Depth look at his rising career and a discussion that includes the many obstacles Smith endured en route to his current role as the leader of the Chiefs. Smith talks openly about what it was like being a young QB charged with turning around a “dysfunctional” 49ers franchise, losing his job to Colin Kaepernick and why this could be his last year with the Chiefs, among many topics. The episode also includes conversations with those who know Smith best, including his wife, Elizabeth, Coach Andy Reid and Pro Bowl tight end, Travis Kelce.
A few quotes from the short preview:
- Alex: “I haven’t reached my potential as a quarterback. I’ve shown flashes of it but I haven’t done it really at the level I know I’m capable of.”
- Alex: “If something comes up with Patrick that I see and I want to say I’m certainly not going to bite my tongue and not say it.”
- Alex: “There was definitely a few year period where I was more comfortable playing on the road (than in San Francisco).”
- Travis Kelce: “I feel like me and Alex and coach Reid have all been on the same page in terms of what we want out of certain plays.”
I’ll update this post when I find out when it airs. UPDATE: Looks like it’s out here.
