They say the third season for an athlete or a coaching regime is the most pivotal, and it makes a lot of sense. In the case of Alex Smith, Andy Reid and Co., 2015 is that year.

Smith has now been in Reid’s offensive system for two years, and any kinks should no longer exist.

Reid and General Manager John Dorsey have now drafted three times, and are starting to build a team around “their guys.”

Smith, new addition to the wide receiving corps Jeremy Maclin, tight end Travis Kelce, backup running back Knile Davis, cornerback Sean Smith and others were all brought in by current Chiefs brass.

It’s time they, along with Jamaal Charles, Justin Houston, Tambi Hali and other veterans step up and help the KC Chiefs compete for the AFC West Division crown.

The links below take a look at what Dorsey needs to do to keep the team successful, some interesting position battles and a (not so) fun look at some historically awful Kansas City quarterbacks.

Here’s what’s going on around Fansided.com.

John Dorsey’s Make Or Break Year [Arrowhead Addict]

"The general consensus in the NFL is that a general manager or head coach will get three years to prove themselves.  Obviously there are exceptions to this, and the rule clearly does not apply in Oakland where coaches are lucky to get three weeks, but by and large it is accepted that three years is how long it takes to show whether the team leadership has things moving in the right direction or not.  That’s where Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey is now."

Kansas City Chiefs: Predicting The Third-Year Players [Arrowhead Addict]

"The majority of the buildup to the 2013 NFL Draft was dominated by the choice between two left tackles; Eric Fisher and Luke Joeckel. With the first-overall pick, Kansas City general manager John Dorsey decided Fisher was the superior left tackle. Although playing left tackle at college, Fisher’s rookie season was spent at right tackle."

"The KC Chiefs might be led by a decent quarterback right now in Alex Smith, but it wasn’t always like that for Chiefs Kingdom. While some might disagree that Smith is a decent quarterback, the Chiefs have had some pretty awful guys starting under center over the team’s 55 year history, and that in itself should make fans appreciate Smith more."

Draft Moves at Linebacker Were Aimed at Future [ESPN]

"The roster of the Kansas City Chiefs is at the NFL limit of 90 players. While they still could make a personnel move or two, the roster they have now is at least close to the one they will take to training camp this summer at Missouri Western State University."
