In what could be a key development for teams in need of quarterbacks this season, the Washington Redskins are considering using their franchise tag on Kirk Cousins despite having acquired Alex Smith from the Kansas City Chiefs, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday. If Washington tags Cousins, he would be unable to be a true unrestricted free agent able to sign wherever …

The big trade of quarterback Alex Smith to Washington Tuesday night should be viewed as good news for Bills fans. It's good because the Bills did not pull the trigger on a guy who's a better version of Tyrod Taylor but who clearly is not "The Answer." Smith is a good quarterback. He's 50-26 the past five years for Kansas City. Wow. But talk about a QB-friendly situat…

Alex Smith won't be the next quarterback of the Bills. The Kansas City Chiefs have reached an agreement to trade Smith to the Washington Redskins, according to a report in the Kansas City Star. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that the Chiefs will get a 2018 third-round pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller, who was a 2016 third-round pick. As part of the deal, Sm…

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith has been talked about a lot by Bills fans as the team tries to determine its future at the position. Smith, 33, is entering the final year of his contract and has a cap number of $20.6 million for the 2018 season. The Chiefs could save $17 million by letting him go or dealing him to another team. Any trade could not happen until…

Phil Simms, who played quarterback for the New York football Giants for 14 seasons, thinks Tyrod Taylor’s critics are too harsh. Simms this year transitioned from game broadcaster to being a studio analyst with “The NFL Today,” the CBS pregame show. He also works on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL.” He spent a few minutes by phone this week talking about the Bills’ playoff m…

A week after a disturbing and inexcusable loss – following a bye week – to an otherwise lifeless New York Giants team, the very least the Chiefs might have been expected to do against Buffalo on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium was demonstrate what an aberration that was. This was the time to make a stand and seize some redemption and a reset for the stretch. Instead, the…

Twice on a crucible series of downs, the Kansas City Chiefs challenged E.J. Gaines. The Chiefs' stick of dynamite, Tyreek Hill, who three weeks ago weaved his way through the Dallas Cowboys' seven-man-deep-drop prevent defense for a 56-yard touchdown, had the ball on Gaines' watch. On first down, a large blocker tried to smother Gaines. On third down, the Chiefs drew…

Tyrod Taylor's struggles in the first quarter have been well documented this year, as the Bills have not scored a first quarter touchdown with him under center so far in the 2017 season. Bleacher Report featured columnist Marcus Mosher recently sent a tweet with a table of quarterbacks' passer rating by quarter thus far in the 2017 season. Here's a rundown of Tyrod T…

Andy Reid is unlikely to make a change at quarterback before the Chiefs take on the Bills in Week 12, but many Kansas City faithful are pining for rookie signal-caller Patrick Mahomes to take the reins from Alex Smith. In his weekly post-game mailbag column Chiefs beat writer Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star wrote, referencing Chiefs, "many of you are calling for…

You could say Sunday's game meant nothing, and, in the grand scheme, that's true. The Buffalo Bills and New York Jets had been eliminated from postseason scenarios. Two scuzzy clubs mopping up the year. Big whoop. But the game did mean something. The game was a chance to give dispirited Bills fans a glimpse toward 2017, to provide hope, to let them exhale with some r…

While it must bolster Jim Kelly's ego to know he has been irreplaceable for 20 years, he'd rather watch another quarterback take his Buffalo Bills back to the playoffs. Snow falling on a frigid January afternoon, a miserable opponent and Bills fans going bonkers for their boys ... That's what Kelly and Super Bowl teammates Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith and Steve Tasker…
