Alex Gibbs (http://www.denverbroncos.com/page.php?id=357&contentID=629)rumors - Herm wants him?
A lot of scuttle around here about importing the Denver-type zone blocking scheme that features bootlegs, roll outs and sprint outs.

Apparently Chris Mortensen has gone out on a limb (http://proxy.espn.go.com/chat/chatESPN?event_id=18655)to speculate that Gibbs will be offered a job in KC.


Does that mean Gibbs would be hired as OC?

Didn't we just fire an OL Coach-turned OC? And that one had 2 years experience... :huh:

I think the system could work for Croyle, but I predict a lot of growing pains for the rest of the Chiefs offense if this actually happens.

Thoughts on jelly-jerseyed, leg-whipping, hold-on-every-down Chiefs OL?

So if this is a repost, where's the original?

And is Gibbs being considered for the OC job?

Chris Mortensen updated his report. He actually meant to say Barry Gibb.

No just the OL coach.

Thanks, ChiefsCountry.

Why would Gibbs leave his successful gig in Denver to coach here?

And I wonder why Mortensen (usually reliable in his rumors) be sold on Herm going after a guy to make a lateral move?

I can't even think of a coach who ever willingly left his team to assume the same post on a different squad.

I like the idea of bootlegs and stuff for Brodie, but I just want an 0-line to be able to protect the QB when he drops back 5 to 7 and the WRs have time to go deep and the QB can step up in the pocket to deliver a strike. Brodie can do that too. The O-line needs to be able to protect the QB on regular plays as much as bootlegs. The O-line has to be able to block for the running game too.

Sure asking alot out of a young QB to start moving him around like that and the team has to learn with him on the run. I think Brodie can do it but he is very good in the shotgun formation too and Petyon Manning and Tom Brady have great success in the shotgunn and not running all over the field. I think utilizing a shotgun formation and running draws with a quck RB makes more sinse to me. LJ may not be that type of back but Kolby Smith is.

Apparently the 68-18 skunking we received at the hands of the Invescos left an impression on Coach Edwards.

I agree that the ticket to success is having enough horsepower up front to facilitate the 7-step drop plays. That was one of the keys to Trent Green's success here. Running LJ out of the shotgun might be as successful as a quicker, shiftier back.

Thanks for all the research dude, and I sincerely didn't mean to duplicate discussion. But none of those threads was soley dedicated to the Gibbs discussion. One of them is about Bates. Gibbs was mentioned in all of them, fair enough.

Sometimes issues deserve their own threads. Perhaps this wasn't one of them.

You may think I was piling on, but I promise I wasn't. I WAS being a bit of a smart-ass though, it seems like we've had a TON of duplicate or just flat out pointless threads lately.

I'd definitely read those though because you're going to get some perspective you may not get in your thread because the topic has been bandied about all day.

I'll believe this when WPI reports it after Adam Teicher reports it.

Thanks, friend. I appreciate the tip.
