I don't believe the approach taken by Dorsey and Reid here has any real chance to succeed, and is more likely to go much the same as the Dolphins-Jets.
This makes no sense. The Jets used a high first rounder on the unproven QB with lots of question marks. The Chiefs traded for the NFL proven(ish) QB. The Chiefs are going to open up the offense. The Jets shut theirs down. The Chiefs are not built on defense, the Jets were.
Those strategies are 180 degrees apart.
