Andy Reid: Alex Smith was the greatest thing to ever happen to Pat Mahomes
Jake White @JakeWhite58
When the Kansas City Chiefs selected QB Patrick Mahomes in 2017 it wasn’t universally celebrated as we know it today. We had incumbent Alex Smith who just came off a season in which we won the AFC West, clinched the 2 seed, but ultimately lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Divisional Round. Although Alex Smith wasn’t necessarily losing games for the Chiefs, Andy Reid and company felt the need to upgrade the position with Patrick Mahomes – a prospect they fell in love with for good reason.
