I could be wrong about this, and hope I am if we make the switch, but I think you know that I think this D is a lot better than what they showed this season under screwed up conditions, and is pretty close to very solid 34. We'll see I guess. I just don't want to walk away from what our LB core could be with the right coaching in an attacking scheme.
I expect this defense will resemble Houston's one gap schemes next season. Just because a team is a "one gap" base, does not mean that they run that all day, all teams mix it up with two gap, zones etc.
The thing about the Chiefs though, they still need to get faster on both sides of the ball. The have Houston & DJ, those two give them some speed on defense and of course Jamaal is the speedster that propels the offense. They need more though. that will give more flexibility.
