When you’re an offensive football coach, you want to try to really set precedent on defense and attack the defense,” said Daboll, who broke into the NFL as a defensive assistant under Romeo Crennel with the Patriots in 2000. “I think it’s important to be balanced to help the quarterback out in the run and the pass, utilize different personnel groups, different formations.
“Sometimes we’ll move and shift, sometimes we’ll be stationary. I think you need to have ability to get to an up-tempo scheme where you’re in a no-huddle package, threatening runs, passes, all those types of different things. You have to try to keep a defense as off-balance as you can.”
“I believe in the leadership of the organization from top to bottom. I think they have a good plan. I think they’re organized. I think they understand what they want to get accomplished. And, there are good people here in terms of working with these people, I think it’s important to work with good people, have good relationships, build something strong together, do it together collectively, and those are some of the factors that made my decision fairly simple.”
Lastly, here are some “highlights” from the Chiefs vs. Dolphins game from last year. I thought I would post it to ruin your morning and also let you get as look at the moment Miami started to turn things around. There is some clever play design here by Daboll and he definitely does a nice job of using Bush. Also, it is pretty clear the Chiefs didn’t come to play. The defense looks like they are just going through the motions.
What do you think of Daboll’s offense here?
