Alex Smith hopes Chiefs offense picks up where it left off

The Chiefs made sure running back Jamaal Charles would be in camp on time by reaching agreement on a revised contract that gives Charles a salary more in line with his role on the team’s offense.

Among the people who should be thrilled with that development is Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith. Smith is looking for a contract of his own, but he surely knows that his chances of putting up another strong season leading the K.C. offense are greatly enhanced by Charles’ presence and Smith hopes that’s just one way that the Chiefs offense will resemble the one they rolled out as last season came to a close.

“I felt at the end of last season we were doing some good things offensively,” Smith said, via the Kansas City Star. “We were really on a roll those last six weeks … moving the ball, scoring some points and protecting the football. We had a great off-season and want to get back into it.”

The Chiefs didn’t make any big additions at wide receiver this offseason, but the group they had on hand was enough to help Smith throw for 14 touchdowns and three interceptions over the final two months of the regular season. Smith also had a huge game against the Colts in a playoff contest the Chiefs might have won if Charles had not been injured during the proceedings.

That bodes well for the Chiefs offense this season and Smith’s chances of getting a deal that keeps him in Kansas City a little while longer.

    He plans to keep throwing 5 yards passes to keep his completion percentage up.

    Losing Branden Albert, Jon Asamoah, Jeff Schwartz, and Dexter McCluster all on offense won’t help the situation any. Then throw in losing Branden Flowers, Kendrick Lewis, Tyson Jackson on the defensive side as well. I would honestly say the Chiefs have taken one very large step backwards this year.

    Correction the Chiefs would of won if Charles did not get injured. No running game = lose.

    “the Chiefs might have won if Charles had not been injured during the proceedings.”…and the Chiefs played any defense at all in the second half.
