Alex Smith hasn’t been out of San Francisco for that long, but he already got a chance to meet up with his old chums.

The Chiefs new QB faced the 49ers in a preseason game on Friday. And the going got rough real quick. I guess it’s much easier when you’re leading the San Fran offense, rather than going against its defense.
The 49ers sacked Smith three times and held him to just 62 yards on 7 of 16 passing. He did lead a scoring drive, which ended with a Ryan Succop field goal.
It’s not like his backups did any better, as Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray didn’t do much under center. It should be noted that Colin Kaepernick, the man who took Smith’s starting job in San Francisco, played just one series. He completed 1 of 2 passes for -3 yards.
So, how did the personal reunions go?
