CRAIG GLAZER REVEALS CHIEFS QB ALEX SMITH WANTS TO ESCAPE KANSAS CITY!!!



TKC NOTE: Now that the Royals season is basically over . . . Our pal Craig Glazer reveals some pretty great insights into Kansas City's favorite losing sports team and talk of discontent. Take a look:

Does Chief’s Quarterback Alex
Smith Want Out?

As I have written about earlier this late winter, the Chiefs clearly are in a rebuilding mode.

The franchise was dependent upon its core players, nearly all of whom are first round draft picks, stepping up. Even with a new Head Coach and General Manager, this core group of players looked to be much more of a bust than anything else.

The core group is Dwayne Bowe, Eric Berry, Brandon Flowers, Jamaal Charles, Tamba Hali, Justin Houston, Derrick Johnson and Dontari Poe. So far this group has been disappointing overall. Only Charles and Johnson have really played at a top notch level consistently. The proof is in the numbers. This group even with a new GM, Head Coach and Quarterback still laid a big egg this past season. I know, everyone wants to talk about the Chiefs 11 and 5 record and going to the Playoffs as a Wild Card. After going 9 and 0 with a weak offense and a questionable defense, the Chiefs went 2 and 6 including the embarrassing loss to the Colts in their one Playoff game. The Chiefs only two victories were over last place teams Washington and Oakland. Both of these last place teams had littel trouble moving the ball up and down the field against a defense which by seasons end was one of the worst in the NFL. Most notably the defense lacked both pass rushing and pass defense capability.

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith was one of the two bright spots on the entire team. Smith proved to be a great leader by season’s end an outstanding quarterback in that he had no one to throw the ball to so he invented recievers and was putting up big points in games with San Diego, Denver and Indianapolis. In fact Alex and Jamaal played well enough in all these games to win with the possible exception of the first Denver game. I believe had the Chiefs defeated the Colts in post-season, Smith’s contract wouldn’t be as big an issue today. That loss was certainly not his fault. One could argue that Alex Smith played some of the best football over his last several games with the Chiefs, but due to the team’s horrific defense, he was unable to win any of those big games.

While the Chiefs seem to be interested in paying Alex somewhere between 12 and 14 million a year, after this season he is looking for a contract that would be higher, probably 16 to 18 million a year. Smith is in the second and final year of his contract with the Chiefs so he will be the starting quarterback this year. If they don’t come to terms the Chiefs could franchise him and make him play next year much like they did Brandon Albert this past year. Brandon has now left the team.

The reality is this. Alex Smith is thirty one years old and I believe he’s an under-rated talent in the NFL. Clearly he’s a very smart player and student of the game. He can see that this franchise is likely to continue to fail over the next couple of seasons. Smith can see that because the front office fumbled the ball when it came to CAP dollars they were unable to hold onto important assets on Smith’s side of the football, including Brandon Albert, Geoff Schwartz and Dexter McCluster to name a few. The problem is the Chiefs have no one to replace these three. Most important to Smith, he has no offensive line to protect him. Eric Fisher will replace Brandon at Left Tackle. Fisher could not hold down the Guard spot last year as a number one draft pick and it is highly unlikely he will hold down the much tougher role of a tackle and guarding the quarterback.

Alex has played an NFC Championship game with the ‘Niners and now a post-season game with the Chiefs when he, along with Charles, was the critical ingredient to making that happen. Smith feels he has at least five years left as a starter and if you aren’t going to pay him a lot of money, he needs to be on a team that has a chance at post season glory. This franchise does not.

I was glad to hear that the Chiefs are trying to trade at least Brandon Flowers and possibly Eric Berry, as both are highly over-rated and undeserving of the All-League honors they have garnered over the past two years. It’s time for the Chiefs to be bold and take a big shot, move up in the draft, try and get Johnny Manziel as your quarterback. Maybe, just maybe, he’s the next John Elway. Let’s draft him and find out. What do you have to lose? For the last half-century you haven’t appeared in the Superbowl and you have won THREE post season games. Let’s try something different.

While I normally snicker when listening to Glazer babble, this time I agree with him 100%.

BTW, Mr. Glazer, thanks for not telling us how famous your are, and mentioning your sexual conquests and affinity for hookers and black strippers.

Out of respect for your respect of us. The Bear will refrain from using the N-word or the F-bomb in this comment.

I usually enjoy Glazer's stories on 'himself.' This time he hits the Chiefs fans nerve. He is exactly right. This franchise is a total bust. Reid is not the answer, Dorsey's draft was terrible. There are too many holes, too tough a line up for Chiefs to win this year. Smith deserves better. Chiefs are only good against crap teams. They never beat the good ones. Never.

Well glazer, congratulations. You just wrote what any goofy, Jock sniffing sports talk radio listener in kc could have done. Fuck,you're lame

TM said...

Hate to agree with Craig but he's right on this one. Alex Smith needs to get our of town. But KC might be his safest option in the NFL that stands for Not For Long for quarterbacks.

Bowe cost kc more losses than anyone last season.
If I was Smith, I'd wanna get clear the fuck away from that dude!

TM said...

Agreed. Bowe is basically just a pot head comedian who can run really fast. He knows one route and doesn't show up to play half the time. He's not Jerry Rice.

Nothing like a losing failure saying someone else is a losing failure. To make it worse the loser only says what everyone else has been saying from ESPN on down to well Glazer on the bottom of the media pile.

Who doesn't want to escape Kansas City? Maybe rich white people. Everybody else wants out.

Glazer is the only one in the media who says all this I have heard. The rest say playoffs and 9-7. A joke. You speak the truth budy.

Meebo said...

Of course alex smith wants to leave. who would want to pay this e-tax? duh!

8:20 you need to get out more.

Meebo said...

Glazer might be right but we'll never know it because all of KC sports media is on the take. They wouldn't dare speak up against their bosses.

Anonymous said...

looks like Glazer commented 10 times on his own artilce. WTF is wrong with this loser?

Knows Glazer Is A Phony said...

8:20 only reads TKC so he can see Glazers stories since no other reputable media outlet will display or print the shit. So that really explains why he hasn't seen it anywhere else. Notice how Glazer never comes over to GregHallKc to talk with myself the boys any with his ignorant views on sports. He is a smuck always was in school and will be till the day he dies. Upon his tombstone it will read, "Here Lies a Rat Fink Snitch for All Times"

The Captain said...

Who is this Craig guy? I like the cut of his jib!

CH said...

@10:04 said Craig doesn't "talk with myself the boys"

I call bullshit. Did you know that Greg Hall gets along fine with Craig? They both have different styles, they do their own thing.

He does hang out with you in a chat room and you got your pussy feelings hurt. @10:04 you sound like a sports bitch who doesn't know anything and you aren't gonna find the answers by sniffing Craig's jock.

Man the haters are always out in force on the Glazer. Read his take, good one. Usually they are. Never got the hate.

Chiefs Fan said...

No I have not heard anyone in the media say the 'core group' tanked. Just Glazer. Know what he is right. KK on 810 gets close sometimes. Petro and the boys at 610 believe the Chiefs can contend. Really.

Anonymous said...

I think the chiefs would be wise to not offer Smith any sort of long term deal.

Anonymous said...

This guy is a clearly not a football guy. First of all, Fisher never played guard last season. He play right tackle. He'll now move to left tackle which is the position he played in every game he's ever been a part of before arriving here. Secondly, the 2-6 meltdown at the end of the season had a lot to with Hali and Houston being hurt. Do you think that could affect our pass rush? I think these guys stink as much as the next guy but let's be honest. Glazer needs to stick with his strengths, hookers and blow, and leave topics like these to someone who has a clue!

Tony you need to put the brakes on glazer posting multiple fake comments in his posts. I count 7 in this one at least. His syntax and short 1 to 4 word sentences are easy to spot. Hearne already stated that glazer had to be stopped on his site for this same thing.

Guy at 7:41 The only place I read about Glazer snitching is from the haters on this site. I read KCC as well. Hearne was a Star reporter, covered Glazer, he wrote a few times that was not true. Can you name someone he did that too? I have never seen that either. I think the pile of shit is you, not him.

I got no dog in this hunt. Seems a person or two here hates Glazer and writes same dung every time. Any good comment he wrote right. Man must be up 24/7 and never goes to work.

Jack ass needs to get his facts straight Fisher never played guard. He played right tackle. If he cant even get that right I can not respect anything else he says. Also how can you say Eric Berry is overrated he was rated top 10 last year.

Likely the most poorly written piece of moronic blabber I've ever had the unfortunate displeasure of reading.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
