Poll: Alex Smith trade

Now that you have had some time to absorb the move, what do you think of the Kansas City Chiefs' trade for quarterback Alex Smith?

Are you confident Smith is an upgrade over former Kansas City starter Matt Cassel? Cassel fell out of favor the past two years. Like Smith, who was replaced by Colin Kaepernick as the starter in San Francisco, Cassel was a game manager.

But Smith has won more consistently than Cassel and he protects the ball better. And Smith seems like a fine fit for Andy Reid’s offense.

With all this in mind, are you confident Smith is an upgrade over Cassel? Please take our poll and express the reasons for your vote in the comment section below. We will review the poll results Wednesday.
