According to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star via NFL.com, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith was seen running a bunch of plays out of the pistol formation. He of course ran the same offense with the 49ers last season.
The Chiefs hired the creator of the pistol, former Nevada coach Chris Auit to help with running as well as stopping the pistol.
It would make sense for the Chiefs...
Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star wrote Monday that the Chiefs are tinkering with the Pistol Spread offense for newly-acquired quarterback Alex Smith.
Smith, who ran a similar offense while in college at Utah with Urban Meyer, would be allowed to run and get outside of the pocket more in Andy Reid‘s offense. The hiring of Chris Ault – “Godfather of the Pistol” – as an...
The new Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly had interest in Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith while he was still with the San Francisco 49ers.
Kelly felt Smith had the athletic ability to run the read option offense, well, so does the former Eagles now turned Chief coach Andy Reid.
Smith ran a similar offense with Urban Meyer while in college at the University of Utah...
The Kansas City Star’s Adam Teicher is reporting former Chiefs offensive lineman, Ryan Lilja, is putting his possible reunion tour “on hold” due to offseason surgeries he endured, as well as Kansas City’s content with the “capable bodies along their line.”

The Kansas City Chiefs defense has lived by the bend-but-don't-break mantra the past few years under Romeo Crennel. Well, that's out the window now.
New defensive coordinator Bob Sutton would prefer to attack from the word, ''Hike,'' and during the first week of organized team activities, his players have taken quite the shine to it.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) It hasn't taken long for Alex Smith to become the leader of the Kansas City Chiefs.
The weight of the franchise was foisted upon his shoulders from the very second word leaked out that former No. 1 draft pick would be sent from the San Francisco 49ers to the Chiefs during a topsy-turvy offseason.
If he wasn't considered the leader in the huddle then...
The last time the Kansas City Chiefs got competent and consistent play from the quarterback position, in 2010, Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe led the league with 15 touchdown catches. So with Alex Smith coming to KC to bring some much-needed competency to the quarterback position, it wouldn't be far-fetched to imagine Bowe returning to the top of touchdown mountain in 2013...
The Kansas City Chiefs have signed 2013 NFL Draft Pick, 204th overall Braden Wilson to a four-year contract. He has a tough road ahead of him making the 53-man roster as he really contributes lead blocking and nothing else; something that is getting waned out some in the National Football League. Expect him to either latch on as a special teams player or be added to someones practice...
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is one pretty confident person. He told the Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star that he’ll lead the league this season in receptions and touchdowns. He also believes in running back Jamaal Charles and said he’ll be the league leader in rushing. I think Bowe is a heck of a receiver, but I can’t imagine the Chiefs throwing the...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. The first thing Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith did when he saw left tackle Branden Albert arrive at the team's training facility?
Smith rushed over to greet and welcome him.
"You bet I did," Smith said with a huge smile. "Your left tackle is your best friend. You bet I welcomed him. It's great to have him here."
That Albert arrived...
Haven’t we seen this before? The Kansas City Chiefs were overly impressed with Matt Cassel over his performance for one season, and now they are reliving the past.
The deal for Alex Smith will be an epic failure because it will not lead to a Super Bowl winning team for the Chiefs.
While Alex Smith is not a Super Bowl quarterback, he is a very capable system quarterback. Smith...
