“I did the best thing for my career. I wanted to be a part of a winning program and wanted to get a chance to compete. I understand my role on this team right now is to back up Alex Smith. I understand he’s the starter. But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to compete every single day to push him. He’d be the first one to tell you that’s what makes a good quarterback (group).”

Translation:

"I've got a MUCH better shot at passing up Alex Smith than I do Drew Brees." :hihi:

Ok so why didn't the Saints resign him? Cap casualty? salary expectations? When in doubt, follow the money trail, I suppose. good for him, getting 10 mil for being a backup.. its pretty good work if you can get it... plus lets face it, like the guy above said.. he has a better chance of starting behind Smith and Brees.. Good luck to him!

So he signed with the Chiefs to backup Alex Smith?

I hope he beats out Smith though. Chase could be a fun guy to watch on Sundays.

he's gonna look awfully strange in that red white & yellow. best of luck to him tho , I hope Alex Smith loses his starting job 2 years in a row. that'll be the ultimate payback for that long td run against us in the playoffs 2 years ago. lol

Sad to leave NOLA to AZ; going into ministry

Pulling for Chase to get the 1 spot he knows what it takes to be a winner in the league.
Very happy for Chase:

* He's back in the Show-Me-State, and he has a great following there.

* He's NOT playing in the NFC, and we won't see him until (the earliest): 2016, barring Saints v. Chiefs in the Super Bowl before then.

* I don't know of another QB in his shoes that would NOT have jumped at the chance to be a regular starter. Face it: Drew is good for at least another 4 years.

* Chase is much more mobile than Alex Smith. He can also throw ALL the routes, and has a very accurate deep ball.

Hoping for all the best; he served us well in the Big Easy! :cool:
