In their second day of rookie and quarterback camp, the Kansas City Chiefs are practicing nothing but passing plays on offense. According to the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs have not attempted one running play in the two days they have been on the practice field.

Head coach Andy Reid is in his first season with the Chiefs and no doubt will be revamping an offense which really struggled to score points in the 2012 season. Reid has been known as a pass happy coach during his career. The biggest question will be how newly acquired quarterback Alex Smith will respond to an increase of passing plays.

Smith found success in San Francisco under head coach Jim Harbaugh but his role was more of a game manager with the 49ers, not a pass happy quarterback. Smith did succeed in his role with a limited passing attack. In 2011 Smith accounted for just five interceptions, the lowest number of any quarterback that started all 16 regular season games. He also attempted just 17 attempts per game that season, also the lowest in the league. Look for that number to possibly double under Reid.
