Kansas City Chiefs Defense Is Based On Speed

It appears that the Kansas City Chiefs players are booming with confidence this offseason. Players have had nothing but positive views on their new coaches and playing schemes. The chiefs seem to be taking the same approach that many of the other teams in the NFL are taking, which is a team that is purely based on speed and unpredictability. Nose tackle Daniel Muir had the following to say on KCChiefs.com.

“We’ve just been flying around, Guys have been having fun and making plays. The thing about our defense is, even if you make a mistake, if you’re just running and flying around, coming off the football, you’ll make plays and that’s exactly what’s been happening. It’s awesome, because as a defensive lineman, you want to come off the football and dominate; you want to get up-field and make a play, that’s exactly what he calls our defensive line to do.”

As mentioned above, speed and unpredictability has been recurring theme this offseason. Teams are turning their practices and workouts into “track meets” to ensure that their players will be able to keep up with these high-octane passing offenses. The Chiefs are no different.

It’s been a busy offseason for Chiefs players on defense. They have had to adjust to the needs of their new coach Bob Sutton, who has brought in a whole different approach and view on how they should play the game. Will these adjustments be to much for the Chiefs players to learn in such a short time? Or will they turn the Chiefs into one of the NFL’s most feared defenses?
