OK, Kansas City Chiefs, your starting quarterback is Alex Smith. That's a pretty good deal when Brian Hoyer or Matt Cassel is throwing passes for the other team, but you're instantly running a fat deficit when Aaron Rodgers or Ben Roethlisberger is carving up your secondary. That's no shot at Smith, either. We could substitute the names of eight or 10 other quarterbacks earning $15 million a year or more.
