Open Thread: Let's Make Fun of Alex Smith

Streeter Lecka

Alex Smith is on his way to being the starting QB of the Kansas City Chiefs. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

After stewing over it for the last few hours, I've decided that we (as a people) should rescind Alex Smith's "San Diegan" eligibility. He's not from here. He's allowed back for vacation or to visit family, but shouldn't be allowed to own property here. From this moment on (when his trade from the San Francisco 49ers to the Kansas City Chiefs isn't final or official but seems likely to happen), he is the target for every San Diego Chargers fan that wishes to root against the Kansas City Chiefs.

It seems like there's a lot of people that want to talk today, myself included, so I thought an open thread would be in order.

I want to make jokes about how Andy Reid has crafted himself a fine trade to bring his team an older, less successful version of Nick Foles (who has a 1-5 career record as the Eagles' starter). I want to talk about Smith only having success in an offense where he was being hidden, and how that relates to him being traded to a West Coast play-calling Head Coach that loves nothing more than to throw the ball more than run it. I want to laugh about the picture above and how intimidated Smith looks of Kaepernick's tattoos and charisma.

So, that's why this open thread exists. Let's go crazy.
