Im curious to know your opinion if you think Jerry Gray would be a good choice as Chiefs new DB coach?

Personally, Im a big fan of Jerry Gray. Im rooting for him, and I hope the Chiefs express interest in him. I like the job he did in Buffalo. Liked him as a player for both Texas and the Rams. He was a good DB coach in Tennessee, and molded some pretty good DB's in Samari Rolle and Denard Walker. They had a well respected secondary during his tenure there.

Gray co-ordinated some well respected pass defenses in Buffalo. Finishing 1st and 3rd respectively the last 3 years.

So I figure since this team managed to hire Krumrie and Blackmon, why not Gray? Get a majority of that Buffalo Bills defensive staff in here, its only a good thing since they all can relate from working together for years. Im thinking all those guys, Krumrie, Blackmon, and Gray will be familiar with each other and get a good feel. They were very successful in Buffalo.

I'm just glad we got rid of Guinta. Not necessarily because he sucks. If he was as bad as Gun-apologists claim, he'd never have been immediately snatched up by Tom Coughlin. I was just so sick and tired of having our D problems be blamed on a position coach. It was a joke.

Well, he was part of the problem.

But having Bartee, McCleon, Wesley, and Woods are another problem.

Scouts takes: Runs a pressure defense that thrives on blitzes from all over the field ... loves the element of surprise ... knows how to identify personnel to run his schemes ... a very creative guy ... utilizes 4-3 defense but can use 3-4 scheme ... doesn't get as much credit as he should.

Well....I know there are a lot of people that can blame Gunther.

I understand he played Surtain and Warfield 10 yards off their man. Most people would love to see Surtain and Warfield being applied in press man to man coverage. However, it's not so easy. Their are a few factors imo. The rules nowadays negate top CB play....And we really don't have a defensive line, so I don't blame Gunther for the way he utilized Surtain and Warfield.

My take on it is, did he really have a choice but to call those schemes?
