Please rank the top 3 D Coordinators from any point in Chiefs history. Please note: I am only asking about Chiefs D Coordinators- I am not interested in coordinators from other teams.

Hank Stram acted as both OC and DC when he was head coach, I believe, so he would be #1.

Bill Cowher is #2.

After that, the rest suck.

If I am reading correctly, Cowher's defenses were ranked
1 in '89
16 in '90
18 in '91
and 5 in '92

17 in '96
15 in '97

Wasn't old enough to understand football till 1988 so...

1. Cowher
2. Gun-because he is better than GRob and Kurt(not saying much)
3. Kurt-I guess

Am I forgetting someone? Seems like after Cowher its been a downhill slide.

Your point?

I should tell you that stats don't impress me.
I make judgements by what I see.

Your point?
You really think Gun is that bad? I don't believe it. At worst you could say Gun is the third best D coordinator in franchise history. Most would probably rank him second behind Cowher and, speaking about them only as coordinators, Cowher and Cunningham are pretty close. The D has greatly improved under Cunningham and will be even better this year when we replace some of the trash at defensive tackle.

So I guess my point is that Cunningham is one of the few coaches we have who isn't in over his head.

I believe Gun was a good coordinator for us in the 90s.

That doesn't necessarily mean he's still a good coach though. Look at Joe Gibbs. I think what Gunther did well in the 90s doesn't really work with today's offenses. Does that mean he can't adapt? Hard to say until he gets a chance. So far our defense has been steadily improving under him.

Personally I think the coaching part of a defense's success is over-rated anyway. Look at all the great DCs and a staple of their defenses is a great D-line.

I am wrong... Arnsparger was not our DC from what I can find online.... I could have sworn he had a year with marty.

I almost hate to say this, because im not a huge Gun fan, but to his credit: His D gave us less points to the Colts in the playoffs than the Ravens, Pats or Bears did...

I'd say Greg Robinson hands down was the best DC in Chiefs franchise history.

When did the coordinator systems come about? Did Hank Stram have a dedicated defensive coordinator in 1969? I'm just curious, because I suspect that coaching staffs have grown a lot in the past 20 years.
