...about how the Chiefs utilize their OLBs?

"Vermeil indicated that Johnson will compete with Scott Fujita for a starting spot. The Chiefs don't play their outside linebackers strong and weak. They line them up right and left. Johnson could play either side."

A little help?

they don't switch sides apparently regardless of how the formation comes out in regard to the TE... i guess? Maybe they just shading their Mike instead with line adjustments?

Makes sense IF your OLBs are both quick and good in coverage. If they aren't, a static lineup will quickly lead to having the worst defense in the league.
