See how Alex Smith performs in the red zone compared to rest of AFC West

It was a breezy, borderline chilly, Sunday afternoon in mid-November last season. The 7-2 Kansas City Chiefs were at home against the five-loss Tampa Bay Buccaneers, rolling with a five-game winning streak that included victories over the New Orleans Saints at home and the Oakland Raiders and Carolina Panthers on the road.

It was also ... confession time ... my first visit to Arrowhead Stadium.

I will say, it was an experience Iíll never forget. The atmosphere, the tailgating, the fans ... it was all amazing. But, at the same time, it was just about as frustrating a game as youíll ever see.

The funny thing is, though, Alex Smith had your typical, average Alex Smith performance. The Chiefs QB threw for 261 yards, had one touchdown and one rushing touchdown, along with one interception. Pretty so-so, but that seems to be then norm for No. 11. Spencer Ware rushed for 69 yards on 17 attempts, a stat line that pretty much was his average performance on the ground in 2016.

I did some digging and found the postgame column of The Kansas City Starís Sam Mellinger. You donít have to read too much to remind yourself of how that game panned out.

What couldíve been another ugly Chiefs win turned into an ugly-as-vomit 19-17 loss to the mediocre Buccaneers at home on Sunday the moment quarterback Alex Smith executed a bad throw, poorly leading to an interception in the end zone when even a field goal wouldíve probably been enough to win.

The biggest frustration, aside from the inability of the offense to score, was the red zone performance by Smith. Most notably, Smith threw a crucial interception from Tampa Bayís six-yard line (the one referenced by Sam above) with KC trailing 12-10 early in the fourth quarter.

I wonít spend too much time dwelling on the Smith interception, but it appeared to be a predetermined read, where Smith failed to notice Chris Conte waiting in the middle of the end zone.

And as a Chiefs fan, you probably feel that this missed throw in the tweet below by Smith is one you see every Sunday.

Click here to see Tigerupyourbutt's lover boy make one of the throws that led to his AFCW ranking:
https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2017/...red-zone-stats

The Chiefs scored in the red zone 46 percent of the time in 2016, which was 26th-best in the league. Thatís about 10 percent worse than Kansas Cityís red zone conversion rate in 2015.

Plus, what really makes the red zone inefficiency by Smith & Co. so frustrating is that the offensive line for the Chiefs did a pretty good job in 2016. According to Pro Football Focus, the Chiefs offensive line allowed the fewest pressures in 2016 (they tied with the Raiders) and Smith saw the lowest percentage of pressures on third down.

For an offense that operates like the Chiefs, scoring in the red zone has to be one of the most important parts of their game. Minus Tyreek Hill running wild throughout the field, there isnít a big-play threat out there. Itís reasonable to contribute the lack of a play maker to Smithís inability or unwillingness to take shots down the field.

So, if you were asked a trivia question on where Smith ranked in red zone passing performance in the AFC West in 2016, youíd be a winner if you answered with ... ďdead last.Ē
2016 AFC West Red Zone QB Stats
Quarterback Passing Completion % Passing Yards TD INT Passer Rating Yards/Attempt Rushing Yards
Derek Carr 44/90 47% 306 19 1 91.9 3.4 -7
Philip Rivers 45/96 47% 333 22 2 86.5 3.5 1
Trevor Siemian 28/55 51% 164 10 1 89 3 5
Alex Smith 29/63 46% 167 11 3 72.7 2.7 51
Statistics via Pro Football Reference

The only real edge that Smith has over the other three quarterbacks actually has nothing to do with his passing game. He has 51 rushing yards; the other three have -6 combined rushing yards. Congratulations.

Trevor Siemian threw for one less touchdown than Smith did in the red zone in 2016 but had eight less pass attempts. Smithís passer rating was 16.3 percentage points worse than the next-best rating, owned by Siemian (89).

The Chiefs are at the point now where no one reasonably expects them to be any better than an average offense so long as Smith is behind center. The AFC West wonít be an easy division to play in in 2017 by any means, and if the Chiefs want to compete for a playoff run, improvement in the red zone should be one of their highest priorities.

"Perform" is not a word that should be associated with Smith.

Ever.

Maybe someday. Let's see him actually beat good teams.. or play well when his great OL doesn't block well.. or win a division.. or win a playoff game. I think he's an above average QB for a long time in Oakland. Awesome? meh. He has much work yet undone for that.

Game of Thrones time... whoooooooo!!!!! **** the Faid!

You and tiger always saying Great oline like the chiefs line isnt good. They both allowed 126 pressures last year. That the oakland line is way better than the chiefs is just alex delusional justification.

Hard to quantify HOW MUCH better, but I think most Chiefs fans would agree on three things when discussing this.

(1) Last season's KC OL was good at pass pro... even if the quick pass scheme assisted.
(2) Not good in run blocking.
(3) Oakland's OL is >>>> KC's.

Ultimately, your post has nothing to do with mine. I can legitimately feel that Carr is being overrated, and that there's no genuine motive behind that assessment. You can spin and dance it, if you must though.

Here's another breakdown of the offensive line, not allowing Alex to deliver the ball

Nope. Sorry. Just good. The Alex and Andy scheme of getting the ball out quicker than shit was a nice yet painful way to disguise it.

Nothing wrong with good, though. Good is far better than they have been in years. (of course just pass pro.. their run prowess was the worst it has been since Andy Reid took over)

Oh for ****s sake; dear God just drop him dead on the field so we can end this nonsense once and for all.

There are no ****ing excuses, assholes! Alex Smith has not been.. nor is likely ever to be... good enough.. to carry a team like the Chiefs through a SB.

You gettin' that?

That's right, He can help better your team from a 2-14 one to a top 4 AFC one... but he needs more than a team 20th ranked run game, top 5 in drop efficiency, and a coach that takes his foot off the gas when they get ahead.

You got better than that? Pat Mahomes? yeah? throw him in then! IDGAF.. Smith had his small measure of career redemption and is getting paid. Throw that unsigned rookie in there... NO MATTER WUT.. that shit will be entertaining!
