New QB pleased with the mentality the team has going into this off-season workouts.
Kansas City Chiefs starting Quarterback Alex Smith is looking forward to working with the re-vamped offence this off-season, and is already impressed with the tempo the team is bringing to its off-season workouts.
Speaking to the Kansas City Star, Smith was delighted to be working with this group of players on offence this year, as the team prepares for a tough three day mini-camp.
“Up until this point, you could only look at the team on paper, basically,” said Smith.
“You see potential there, but from here on out it’s about us putting in the work and coming together, getting out here on the field, executing plays. That’s what it’s going to come down to.
“You have to treat every day like a sprint, work as hard as you can to get better each and every day and keep stacking days together.”
The 28-year old himself is a new face on the team this year, after the Chiefs traded a second round pick for his services, after he was dropped in favour of Colin Kaepernick in San Francisco.
The offence will include stud receivers Dwayne Bowe and Dexter McCluster, plus superb running back Jamaal Charles, all players that will help boost this offence that struggled to score consistently in 2012, ultimately becoming the reason why the team finished a league worst 2-14.
With the players in place and a new head coach in Andy Reid, there is a cause for optimism at Arrowhead Stadium, as the team could go from worst team in the league, to a playoff contender in just one year.
