Coffee with the Chiefs – Is 2015 do-or-die for Andy Reid?


Good morning, Addicts! We are less than a week away from the Kansas City Chiefs starting training camp in St. Joseph, Mo., with quarterbacks and rookies getting there before the rest of the group. So what is being talked about around the web involving the Chiefs? Plenty.

Is 2015 a make-or-break year for Andy Reid and the Chiefs?Ty Schalter of Bleacher Report

"Despite making the playoffs seven times in the 21 intervening years—including 2013, Reid’s first in Kansas City—the Chiefs have been unable to make anything happen. With back-to-back winning seasons, the successful retention of monster pass-rusher Justin Houston and a much-improved receiver corps, Reid’s Chiefs look potent in a watered-down AFC."

"It’s fair to say that teams that run primarily zone blocking schemes want their linemen to be quick on their feet and smart (able to recognize when to combo and when to pass off a defender). Zone blockers CAN be smaller but as long as they can move they don’t HAVE to be undersized. These teams want guys who can work in tandem with other linemen and move / steer their defender in the proper direction to ensure they don’t make a play."
