I wonder how bad is Te'o's stock considering that Honey Badger seemed to impress more at the combine despite spending a year in rehab.

Maybe the Browns can make a move on Cassel!

Also I sure hope the 49ers don't become Jets west.

Isn't that a smart trade? There's no real long-term QB prospect in this draft, and Alex Smith is a competent starter. You won't win the Superbowl with him (at least Jim Harbaugh doesn't think so!), but you can be an upper-tier team. It allows the Chiefs to wait until they're in a position to draft a good prospect, and/or take a flyer on less likely prospect, digging for a Kaepernick/Wilson if you like.

Or are you saying it's dumb trade by the niners?

Smart on both sides, but I wonder what the 9ers are gonna do with all the picks they have.

It's a fantastic trade. I believe that you can win a superbowl with smith as your QB. Last time I checked, Harbaugh W didn't win one with the guy he replaced him with (zing!), Smith didn't lose the niners the NFC title game last year. that was their stellar return man.

They are laughing, because I have been chomping all off season about how it made GOOD SENSE for the Browns to go after Smith Aggressively. I'm going to tell myself that the reason the Browns didn't come up with it, is because we don't have a 2nd rounder to part with, and I can't imagine there are too many players Harbaugh would have wanted that the Browns would have parted with to compensate for taking a 3rd rounder. I don't want to believe that we just didn't pursue him.

So now, I can go wallow in self pity as I realize that the Browns are going to give wheelchair another season. AND I'll have to watch Peyton lose in the playoffs again next year.

Oh well, Baseball season is close. I haven't been this excited for baseball in a VERY long time. Come on Francona, don't let us down.

The 49ers robbed the Chiefs in this trade. Smith needed to be moved both in a cap room sense and in a get this guy out of here ASAP sense. Chiefs paid too high a price for him.

Smith will revert to being the Alex Smith of old in KC for the simple fact the team around him isn't that good.

That only looks at why the 49ers want to dump him, and doesn't take into account any other teams that might be interested (like, say, the Browns). Alex Smith isn't "elite" or a "franchise quarterback", but he's going to give the Chiefs breathing room until they can find such a player (or let them ignore QB and build around the defense).

Alex Smith is Matt Cassel with a different name.
