Chargers’ view of Chiefs’ offseasonSDNativeinTX from Bolts From The Blue

"The 2015 Chiefs should look a lot like the 2013 and 2014 versions of the team.  Andy Reid and Offensive Coordinator Doug Pederson run about the purest form of the West Coach offense in the league.  This offense features short passing routes with mostly 3 and 5 step drops, with a 7 step drop mixed in to keep a defense honest.  A high percentage of passes are thrown to backs and tight ends behind or within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage.  Deep passes are thrown occasionally and a lot of play action passes are used in this system."
