Chiefs | Alex Smith can improve under Andy Reid

San Francisco 49ers QB Alex Smith, who will be traded to the Kansas City Chiefs, should benefit in head coach Andy Reid's offense, particularly in the passing game, according to analyst Trent Dilfer. Reid will provide an enhanced passing game that's heavy on short and intermediate routes, which will suit Smith's strengths. "Now he's going to the same structure and a superior passing system," Dilfer said. "Not a superior system - I'm not taking a shot at the Niners at all. I love what the Niners do. But just from a passing standpoint. A passing-tree standpoint. Multiplicity in the dropback, and playaction and movement game. The screen game. Trick plays. You name it. This is one of the better passing systems in the league."
