Alex Smith Expects Chiefs to Throw Deep More in ’15


Now that you’re throwing to Jeremy Maclin, can you take advantage of the deep ball more than you have in the past? Alex Smith: Absolutely. I think two things: For one, the deep ball for sure is something that gets a lot of attention. It’s a matter of time and striking when it’s right and being able to take advantage of those opportunities that are few and far between — and when you get them, you’ve got to be able to hit them. That’s kind of the nature of it. They are a lower percentage just across the board. I think as far as Jeremy goes, I think he’s the type of receiver that excels in all the areas. I think that’s his biggest strength is just watching from afar. I don’t think you can kind of pigeon-hole him as just a speed guy or over-the-top guy. His game is way more complex than that, and he can do a lot of different things.
