The Kansas City Chiefs are probably not going to make a quarterback change this year. Alex Smith probably is their man, for better or for worse in 2016.”Probably” is the key word. It would take something truly terrible to make a change.But in 2017 and beyond? That’s another story, and an important chapter might be written Sunday night.

Then there is Kansas City’s signal-caller. Quarterback might be the most overrated position in the NFL from a salary cap perspective — too many are paid too much at the detriment of the rest of the team — but it’s still a vitally important position, and the Chiefs have to ask a big question about it: Can the Chiefs win a Super Bowl with Smith as their quarterback?
