Hali is a liability in coverage, which is why you send him after the QB more than half the time. - Which is why I fully support his replacement being drafted this year and him being let go in the 2015 offseason -

Jordan was a liability in coverage, which is why he was sitting on the sidelines and Berry was in the box as a hybrid LB in subpackages on more than half the snaps. - Two fold deal here. One, the nature of the single-high safety scheme places the SS in a position to be in coverage primarily but from an "in the box" placement. In the same breath, you are 100% correct that Jordan was a liability in coverage, which makes me wonder why the hell the Chiefs brought in Joe Mays who is equally inept. Nico Johnson is also a liability there. Drafting LBs that cannot cover forces your team to come out of a base look into the nickel more often. With the part above about Hali, KC would be as well off playing a 4-3 -

And blitzing is far more effective when at least one of your DEs can create pressure.

Even when he did blitz DJ or Berry, the lack of any pressure from the DL made it far to easy for the blitz to be picled up. - I'm going to couple these last two into a single response and say that pressure in the sense that the DE can at least force double-teams is a huge priority in a 3-4. KC has routinely trotted out DE's that cannot even win 1-on-1 battles, which is absolutely limiting. This was a huge reason I was a proponent of drafting Star Lotulelei a year ago and moving Poe to DE. I think Poe is now entrenched as a disruptive NT, so the Chiefs have to figure some way to find DE's that can force double-teams rather than being merely run stoppers in 1-on-1. Again, if the DE's can't do it, then moving to a 4-3 may be better for the team -

I don't know how effective Sutton is, or can be, as a DC.
And I won't know until we fix those positions. - I don't disagree with you, all I cite is that I saw a lack of "try" from Sutton. Perhaps he was scared to try things given the limitations of the above players. Nobody gets bonus points from me for being scared. - .
