I don't give a rat's ass about Sutton, so this has no agenda.
The overall lack of talent at safety and ILB, no pass rush option at DE, lack of depth at OLB, and a vet corner who historically struggles in zone, and a rookie with only a couple of years of college experience at the position, and the overall lack of versatility limits adjustments.
So tell me, just what should he have done?
Everyone is a dumbass... lol...
Anyway, what I saw was a lack of creativity in blitz schemes, and this was also a problem with Crennel. Every team in the NFL knows Hali is coming every play and Justin Houston is coming most of the time. The ILBs and safeties rarely blitz. A 3-4 wasn't designed to be this way, but the Chiefs throw the same shit at a team week after week hoping it somehow works. I'd like to see more variation where and when the blitzes come. I want to see both OLBs dropping into coverage with some regularity, not one less than half the time. I want to see both ILBs being blitzed at various times. I want to see overload blitzes, etc. The best pressure, the quickest pressure, comes up the middle. The Chiefs have to do more to disrupt quarterbacks up the middle, yet they don't. I don't give anyone a pass in the organization by saying the pieces weren't there.
As for coverage, I don't think there is much the Chiefs could have done a whole lot differently. What I think is more the problem is that teams don't have to guess where pressure is coming from versus where the coverage areas will be. They know where pressure is coming from and they know what areas will be open, and that is the problem in a nutshell. On top of that, the entire secondary aside from Berry played pretty shitty last year, that doesn't help anything.
