Texts from Last Night: The Alex Smith Edition
It seems like the perfect opportunity to poke a little fun at Smith as he prepares for the next phase of his career. We have all seen some of the popular "Texts From Last Night" memes that have circulated around the Internet. What if Smith had some of his own?
Keep in mind this is all fictitious and purely for fun, but let's sneak a peek at the iPhone of the Chiefs new signal caller and see what some of his recent conversations have been like.
News from Coach Reid
We start with a conversation between Smith and his new head coach, Andy Reid. It appears that Smith may not be going into a situation quite as different from the one he leaves behind in San Francisco.
Harbaugh Rips KC
It would make sense for Smith to feel resentment toward Jim Harbaugh. After all, the coach basically decided Colin Kaepernick was better than him right in the middle of the regular season. Still, Harbaugh pulls no punches about Smith's new team.
Kaep Tries to Make Amends
It really is not Colin Kaepernick's fault that he was given a chance at the starting job and took full advantage of the opportunity. He proved his value and made Smith an expendable piece of the 49ers' puzzle, but that doesn't mean Smith can't be a little bitter.
Show Me the Money
News has broken that Dwayne Bowe has signed a five-year extension to stay with the Chiefs. This is great news for a franchise that desperately needs him to validate its receiving corps and provide a vertical threat downfield. However, Smith may have overestimated his role in Bowe's decision.
The 'Curse of Kaepernick'
It appears Geno Smith thinks Kansas City may still have eyes for him with the top-overall selection. This would at first not make sense, considering KC just brought in Alex Smith to be its leading man. Still, Geno remembers how the situation played out with Kaepernick in San Francisco, and seems to have a new curse in mind to follow Alex around.
Just Let It Go, Aaron
This conversation at first seemed like a gesture of goodwill from Aaron Rodgers. These two have always appeared cordial during postgame handshakes, even joking around at times. But Rodgers is clearly still harboring some ill-will from that 2005 NFL Draft that saw his name not get called until the 24th pick.
Down the Same Path
It is hard not see some irony in the fact that Smith will continue to endure comparisons to 49ers legend Joe Montana. After all, Smith was supposed to be the latest QB in the lineage of San Francisco stars. That didn't quite work out, and now Smith has to go to the city where Montana closed out his career.
The Chiefs had six Pro Bowlers on their roster last season and now add a competent QB and head coach to the mix for 2013. This is going to be a fun team to watch that also harbors a ton of talent.
After seeing these messages we know someone will need to keep an eye on Smith's phone throughout the season.
