The Kansas City Chiefs had an active offseason. They got a reputable coach with a history of success in Andy Reid and they solidified their quarterback position by acquiring former San Francisco 49ers. Running back Jamaal Charles is excited to have a quarterback of this caliber.

And what caliber is that? Super Bowl caliber.

“I think he is. He’s got a great arm,” Charles told Around The League. “He’s been winning most all of his career. I think he wants to prove people wrong: That he is a good quarterback, that he can stay consistent.”

He led the San Francisco 49ers to an NFC game, a season later Smith’s 49ers made it to the Super Bowl but with Colin Kaepernick at the helm. While Smith made it to the Super Bowl, he didn’t get to play.

“It probably hurt him,” Charles said, “because he probably felt like everybody forgot about him because of the Kaepernick situation and being a backup. Making it to the Super Bowl but not playing in the Super Bowl. Everybody wants to play in the Super Bowl. So, I think he’s got a lot to prove and he’s a Super Bowl quarterback … with the passion to go out and prove people wrong.”
