Gailey sees promise for Chiefs' offense as offseason program begins

Gailey sees promise for Chiefs' offense as offseason program begins


By ADAM TEICHER

The Kansas City Star



Chan Gailey isn’t ready to turn around and go home, not even after he’s had the chance to watch on video an entire season of Chiefs offense.“A lot of the guys that were on that film,” said Gailey, the Chiefs’ new offensive coordinator, “will not be here next season.”


The departure of five starters is not all that kept Gailey from bolting for the nearest door. In the six returning starters — running back Larry Johnson, tight end Tony Gonzalez, wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, offensive linemen Brian Waters and Damion McIntosh and even quarterback Brodie Croyle — Gailey sees something positive to work with.


“I see some guys that have some ability to make plays,” Gailey said. “What you can’t do is just be shooting that scattergun out there and hoping something hits. There’s got to be an approach on how you use each of those guys. None of those guys will be used exactly how everybody in the stands would expect. We’ve got to have a plan.”


The process starts in earnest today with the beginning of the Chiefs’ offseason program, though the first practice won’t come until May.


That fact aside, coming up with that plan figures to be difficult for Gailey at least until after the draft. Almost half of the starting lineup is undetermined. The players who will eventually be given most if not all of those jobs aren’t even with the Chiefs yet.


“I have no problem playing rookies,” Gailey said. “I’ve done that everywhere I’ve been. I started a freshman quarterback in college one time and that’s even harder to do.”


Croyle, who started six games toward the end of last season, is no longer a rookie but occasionally played like one. The Chiefs lost every one of his starts as he was unable to breathe any life into one of the NFL’s worst offensive teams.


“He shows all the signs of being a good, young quarterback,” Gailey said.


“There’s plenty of talent to work with. He’s been in and we’ve talked and he has a good understanding of the game sitting in a chair. That’s all I’ve been exposed to with him. Once you get on the field, that can change and I’ll go back to that word ‘consistency.’ There’s not a position you can play unless you’re consistent. It’s magnified at the quarterback position.”


Gailey must devise a plan for Croyle to get the ball to Johnson, Gonzalez and Bowe so that they’re more effective than they were last season.


“I don’t know yet what our strengths are going to be,” he said. “We have to wait and see who we are. We’d like to run the football and be more successful that way. We’ll have to get the ball to Tony and to Dwayne Bowe. When we get to the end of the season, that’s what I hope we would have accomplished. It may not happen each week, but the tailback, the tight end and the receiver have to be involved.


“We’ll start putting in the basic offense that I’ve used in the past, and then we’ll adjust as we determine what we’ve got.”
How quickly Gailey can get the Chiefs up to speed is another matter. They started slowly on offense in each of their first two seasons with Mike Solari as their offensive coordinator.


They never recovered last season.


“I hope we’re good enough to win the first game, but we have to get better during the course of the season,” Gailey said. “We’ll have to continue to get better. We’ll have to limit the things we do early in the season. If we get good at that, we’ll start to expand and create more opportunities later in the season. The best thing we can do for now is to not try to do too much too early.


“How long it takes to get to where we want to be, I don’t know.”

I like this answer. No fluff, no promises.

Question remains: how is he going to fix the tackle positions?

I thin this is a good interview with an honest assessment. I would have like the interviewer to ask them why they have not signed any FA olinemen but thats not Chan's fault.

Well, I for one would like Tony Gonzalez, Brian Waters, Dwayne Bowe, and Brodie to be used how we in the stands would expect, since they are the best the Chiefs have at their respective positions...

Well shoot, any one of us here could've told him that and saved him a lot of time in the film room. Speaking of which, he must've been fed a mixture of Redbull and crack intravenously in order to stay alert during that entire film of our offense.

We will have games where our defense will score more than our offense.

I think a lot of people are underestimating how much it is going to mean to this offense to have a "real" offensive coordinator.

Gailey isn't the best in the business, but he is a competent, experienced pro.

Plan

Oh NO. Another plan. How long does he want to keep his job. 5 year plan, 7 year plan. Fits right into Herm and Carl's goals of a plan and an attempt to keep their jobs because they have a "plan" that takes years to employ.

I'm starting to wonder if Marty didn't pour roids in the water bucket. He took KC and SD to the playoffs quickly. They were competitive quickly.

I don't want Marty back but I'd sure like to know what he does to rebuild so quickly...

i imagine the offense will at least be an NFL level offense this year. Unlike last year when we play like a high school team.

depends on how well they can jell an offense line together
