Covitz:Chiefs envision Eric Berry as pass rushing and defending threat

Chiefs envision Eric Berry as pass rushing and defending threat
By RANDY COVITZ
The Kansas City Star
Chiefs strong safety Eric Berry just may be capable of pulling off a rare double this season.

The way the Chiefs are using Berry as a pass rusher as well as a pass defender he just could rank among the teams leaders in both interceptions and sacks.

Im going to be all over the place, Berry said of his role in defensive coordinator Bob Suttons aggressive scheme.

Berry, in fact, needs a road map as much as a playbook to figure out where hes lining up from play to play.

Hes the strong safety in the base defense. He can be a blitzing safety or cover safety in the nickel defense. And hes a linebacker in the dime defense.

I really had to get into my playbook because there are certain things I didnt know how to do in the past, said Berry, in his fourth season with the Chiefs. I have to know what to do as a linebacker sometimes Im rushing off the edge. Sometimes I have to stay on top of my game before like with the safety position.

There are just so many different things that I have to know what to do, and I pretty much just cause confusion on the opposing offense. I guess thats my job.

Sutton believes Berry, a 6-foot, 211-pounder, can handle covering tight ends and backs coming out of the backfield as well as provide run support and put pressure on the passer.

Eric has a great skill set, Sutton said. Hes one of those guys that can play deep he has the ability to come down and play low in the box in (nickel) situations. He can cover, he can blitz, hes a very active run defender for a defensive back down in the box. He has a feel for it, he can slither in and out of the box, so he gives us a lot of flexibility. The more things he can do, the more difficult it is for the opposing teams to say This is what he is.

Its certainly more fun for Berry than sitting back in centerfield waiting for the action to come to him.

I dont look at it as doing one job, Berry said. I like my job because its multiple. They ask me to do a lot of things. I blitz, I cover, I play the pass. I feel like thats a lot to put on a player, but I feel like I can handle it so I put a lot on myself. I want to be able to fit that role.

Berry, the Chiefs first-round pick in 2010, has been known to get to the quarterback. He had two sacks in a game at Oakland as a rookie. And he has five career interceptions. Now, quarterbacks will have to play a guessing game with what Berry might be doing.

Last year, people kind of game planned, and they always knew, I would be here, Eric would be there free safety Kendrick Lewis said. Coach Bob is doing a great job disguising they dont know where well be. They cant locate Eric Berry. He can do all those things where Coach Sutton sets him up.

Berrys confident he can fulfill his added duties because hes completely healthy. After a Pro Bowl rookie season in 2010, Berry missed the 2011 season after suffering torn knee ligaments in the first series of the season opener. Though Berry returned in 2012, ranked second on the team in tackles and returned to the Pro Bowl, he didnt have the impact he expects to make this year, both as a player and as a team leader.

I have a lot of confidence in my knee right now, my athletic ability right now and the knowledge that I acquired last year from dealing with that, Berry said. Its a total difference

Im going to do what I do. A lot of people look to me for different things and Im just going to be strong for my team. Im going to try to be a good example and get us pushed in the right direction. I want to be a sparkplug for the team.

Nickel back Dunta Robinson, a 10-year veteran who signed with the Chiefs in the offseason, has been impressed with what hes seen in Berry.

Youre talking about a guy who can play any position, Robinson said. Hes as good as advertised. Hes on his way to becoming the best safety in this league. As long as he keeps preparing, and stays humble the way hes doing, and stays focused the way hes been hes probably the best safety Ive been around. Ive been around some good safeties, but hes probably the best.

Chiefs invent brand new defensive concept: " Safety Blitz "

This is part of a novel & radical 4 part idea:

1)Pressure the QB

2)Cause ints or get sacks

3) stop the opponent from scoring

4) get more turnovers than we give away

All 4 of these concepts were "ivented" by the chiefs in 2013 with the overall theory in mind to:

WIN FOOTBALL GAMES


This new incredible system will revolutionize chiefs football as we know it

To you two specifically. Tight Ends, are very VERY hard to cover. Pointing out that Eric Berry cant cover Antonio Gates one on one is kind of an oxymoron. No one has been able to do that for a Decade. But, all I can assume, is that the Chiefs are going to rely on pressure up front, to ease some of the burden of having to cover these guys for an extended amount of time.

Pressure, busts pipes. Meaning, the more pressure you put on a qb, the less time he has to throw, leading to a sack, incompletion, or a turnover.

The more time a qb has in the pocket, a receiver, or tight end is going to get open. You can NOT cover forever. I don't care if you had Revis, Champ bailey in his prime, and Deion in his prime, with Ronnie lott, and Ed reed back there, if you give a qb in this league with the offensive rules 5 seconds every play to find a receiver, they are going to get open.

You will be amazed, just remember back to your DERRICK THOMAS Neil Smith days of how good your secondary looked....

Remember that, now think about that this year.

Holy shit. What a load of crap.

If Berry is a team leader in sacks, we have big problems.

And you're blind. He struggled a lot more than early on and he was not at the level at the end of last year that he was at the end of his rookie season. It was a complete joke that he made the Pro Bowl last season.

It's weird but I am remembering it the other way around. I'm remembering Gates destroying us until we put Berry on him, after that Gates still made some plays but nowhere near the amount before Berry started covering him.

if we really are going to go to an attacking/zone blitzing 3-4 defense then i imagine everyone is going to be used more in pass rush.


berry and Houston come to mind first

DJ as well


Arenas is a pretty good blitzer ....... oh wait

For what it's worth, this is similar to what I remember.

Gates was destroying us and they put him all on Berry's shoulders. I remember thinking "WTF, he's going get owned" while slinging slurs at the imposter collecting a coaches paycheck on our sideline. There's no doubt he got owned on several plays, but I seem to remember him doing much better than I expected. If anyone really expected him to get on an island with one of the best, and most experienced, tight ends to play the game and shut him down, there and idiot.
