Chiefs D Coordinators...
Please rank the top 3 D Coordinators from any point in Chiefs history. Please note: I am only asking about Chiefs D Coordinators- I am not interested in coordinators from other teams.

Hank Stram acted as both OC and DC when he was head coach, I believe, so he would be #1.

Bill Cowher is #2.

After that, the rest suck.

If I am reading correctly, Cowher's defenses were ranked
1 in '89
16 in '90
18 in '91
and 5 in '92

Cunningham's defenses
4 in '95
17 in '96
15 in '97
9 in '98

Wasn't old enough to understand football till 1988 so...

1. Cowher
2. Gun-because he is better than GRob and Kurt(not saying much)
3. Kurt-I guess

Am I forgetting someone? Seems like after Cowher its been a downhill slide.

Your point?

I should tell you that stats don't impress me.
I make judgements by what I see.

Didnt Cowhers D give up the passing record to Warren Moon?

You really think Gun is that bad? I don't believe it. At worst you could say Gun is the third best D coordinator in franchise history. Most would probably rank him second behind Cowher and, speaking about them only as coordinators, Cowher and Cunningham are pretty close. The D has greatly improved under Cunningham and will be even better this year when we replace some of the trash at defensive tackle.

So I guess my point is that Cunningham is one of the few coaches we have who isn't in over his head.

who was the old man between Cowher and Gun??? I think he DC'd for tha dolts after here.

I believe Gun was a good coordinator for us in the 90s.

That doesn't necessarily mean he's still a good coach though. Look at Joe Gibbs. I think what Gunther did well in the 90s doesn't really work with today's offenses. Does that mean he can't adapt? Hard to say until he gets a chance. So far our defense has been steadily improving under him.

Personally I think the coaching part of a defense's success is over-rated anyway. Look at all the great DCs and a staple of their defenses is a great D-line.
