Don't underestimate Alex Smith. He has come through in the clutch more than a few times and nobody ever thought he'd make it this far. If he thinks this is his last season in KC then he might be motivated to make it count.

One person shot in stomach near Prospect, Linwood in Kansas City....

How's that new police station working out? Pearls on Prospect? Nope, just more random violence, shootings, prostitutes and the usual suspects. Things in that corridor has gotten much worse since the police moved in. We can no longer count how many violent acts have occurred since they unnecessarily uprooted so many people from their homes. And for what?
