Alex Smith believes the Chiefs can go from worst to first

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith believes he can help his new team go from one of the worst teams in the NFL to one of the best.

“I think that’s the case for every NFL team, and if it’s not the case, it’s a problem. We’re trying to win right now. I think that’s the great thing about the NFL,” Smith said Monday, per NFL.com. “You’re out there and there are very few perennials. It’s a battle every single year. You can go first to worst, worst to first. There is so much parity across the league. That’s the mindset here, that’s for sure. If it’s not win now, then that’s a problem.”

I think Smith is right.  The AFC as well as a the AFC West is so weak, I could see the Chiefs making some noise and even possibly make a trip to the playoffs in 2013.
