Chiefs are their own worst enemies

That is why at this juncture the defensive woes are pinned to defensive coordinator Bob Sutton. Defensive coordinators have a scheme that they believe in and I totally get that. However, if it’s not working whether it’s injury related or simply due to lack of talent, you can’t force players to play a scheme that’s not working. Sutton is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results, Einstein would not approve of this method and neither do we.  I’m hoping he gets it and starts to try some different things but I have my doubts as we’ve seen a few stubborn defensive coordinators in the past go down with the ship holding onto their scheme.

Some of you are  calling for Reid’s head and I think that’s fair. You could make a case that even with back to back winning seasons his teams have gotten progressively worse. Especially with the outlook of this year where Kansas City could be heading into top five draft pick territory. I don’t however think Clark Hunt will pull the trigger as he brought Reid into restore things and Reid still has two more years left on his contract. I guarantee you though, Hunt isn’t happy. He had high hopes for this team this year too and is realizing Reid isn’t making progress in Kansas City.

In early September Hunt was interviewed by the Kansas City Star and stated his thoughts on the 2015 season

"“I think we have a very talented roster, I think we have a very deep roster,” I think Andy, his coaching staff, John Dorsey and his staff have done a tremendous job, not only this year but really in the last three years, of building this thing, this team. “I’m always a little reluctant to say this is going to be our record, but I certainly expect us to build on what we’ve accomplished the last couple of years and hopefully better it.”"

This isn’t what what he had in mind.

If you look at this offensive line, Reid has had three seasons to build it and accomplished nothing. I’m not a betting man but if I did, my money would be on the Chiefs axing the defensive coordinator and offensive line coach. That would at least be a good start in trying to go a more positive direction.

As a loyal fan I can only hope that we see more Jekyll than Hyde in the future with this team and that the good memories start outweighing the bad. So I’ll keep watching and tuning in at that same time and on that same painful station, for better or for worse.

That’s what’s on my mind, Addicts, what’s on yours?
