Teams like Denver, under Payton Manning run a hurry up offense which makes it difficult for defenses to substitute personel. The chiefs cant afford to have a player who is limited to sub packages or one position such as 3-tech, because teams (such as denver) can easily switch to a run play without substitution. I dont think that Aaron Donald is an every down lineman for the chiefs (at least in a 3 man front).

Finally, the same issues that the chiefs faced in the second half of the season (teams beating the blitz with quick passes) was something that Sutton faced in the past. Here is what he said in 2009
