To welcome our new QB Alex Smith, here is a breakdown of his two regular season games played against the Chiefs. Even though Smith has only played us twice, both games ended with a nasty loss for him.
Sunday, October 1, 2006
On October 1, the Chiefs hosted the San Francisco 49ers at Arrowhead Stadium. Coach Herm Edwards confirmed Trent Green would not play in the game. The game was broadcast on Fox at noon Kansas City time.
The Chiefs defense shut out the 49ers high scoring offense, forcing two interceptions and three forced fumbles. Quarterback Alex Smith was held to 92 yards passing and the 49ers to 93 yards rushing. In their first three games, the 49ers had given up only four sacks,but against the Chiefs, they allowed five total sacks.
Quarterback Damon Huard completed 18 of 23 passes for 208 yards and two passing touchdowns. While compiling a 133.3 passer rating – 158.3 is perfect – Huard was hardly ever touched or even hurried by a San Francisco defense which had rung up 12 sacks in its first three games. The game marked the first shutout for the Chiefs defense since December 1, 2002, and the 49ers their first shutout since 2004 and only their second since 1977.
With the win, the Chiefs improved to 1-2

Dominating in every phase, the Chiefs got three touchdown passes from Matt Cassel and sacked Alex Smith five times Sunday en route to a 31-10 victory over the winless San Francisco 49ers.
The 49ers wound up with 251 total yards, which included 53 yards on their final two plays. Linebacker Tamba Hali had three sacks as the rejuvenated defense under first-year coordinator Romeo Crennel harried Alex Smith all day and Frank Gore rushed for just 43 yards on 15 carries and had 102 yards on nine catches.
“We were pretty ineffective the entire game,” Smith said. “I don’t know if there is anything to point to. I think it is everything. We were pretty inept all the way around, throwing the ball, running the ball, protecting, penalties, it was all in there.”
