    Kansas City Chief's Fans - Dream Scenario?

    I posed this question on Twitter, how about this one Chief's fans

    Chip Kelly as Head Coach with Geno Smit running his speed offense with Jamaal Charles and Dexter McCluster as weapons? I think it could be pretty fun to watch!

    Re: Kansas City Chief's Fans - Dream Scenario?

    what makes you think that Geno Smith would ever get the starting nod over Stanzi? I hear that his Chiefs teammates have taken to calling him "Joe Montanamath" and "Elway McBradymanning" in awed tones, whenever he brings the 3rd team out onto the practice field.

    That would be interesting. I know one thing for sure, it cannot be any worse than it is right now.

    Chiefs are my 2nd favorite team after the Colts and I would respond with a big old no thanks to that thought.

    When has any team fully committed to it and built a team around it? Yeah, I don't remember that either. The Broncos BARELY even tried with Tebow and their running backs had much more success than they did with Orton.

    They would have to get a new GM, no decent to good coach will come work with Pioli.

But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    It is not just coaches that would avoid him. As a Chiefs fan, I think the best scenario is to get rid of Pioli ASAP!

    Re: Kansas City Chief's Fans - Dream Scenario?

    I would think a Chiefs fan's dream scenario would be winning a play off game.

    I know as a Cowboys fan that is pretty close to mine.

    Re: Kansas City Chief's Fans - Dream Scenario?

    1) More even playing field. Offense vs defense speed is much more even in the NFL.
    2) Position depth. Running that type of offense is bound to get players injured.
    3) Length of season. By mid-season teams would have figured out how to defend this gadget offense.

    Re: Kansas City Chief's Fans - Dream Scenario?

    btw if Pioli stays the next coach of your Kansas City Chiefs is Kirk Ferentz

    Can it possibly be worse than what they are doing now? And what is most frustrating as a Chiefs fan is that they actually have a lot of young talant. IMO the trio of Pioli, Crennel and Cassel have to go at the end of the year.

    The problem is there is too much speed on defense. In college, Oregon's offense works because they spread the D and expose weaknesses (slower players, big guys in space, etc.). In the NFL it is hard to do that because the guys on D are just as fast or faster than the skill players they are defending.

    Just for reference, you said use McCluster and Charles like Oregon does. McCluster ran a 4.58 40 yard dash, Charles ran a 4.38. Look at guys like Patrick Willis (4.51) Brian Cushing (4.57) Von Miller (4.49) and even a huge guy like JJ Watt (4.81) and compare those to any team Oregon plays (say Cal for now) whose 2 outside linebackers run a 4.77 and a 4.98.

    I know thats just going off 40 which obviously doesn't perfectly translate to everything on the football field. But when you have athletes, that are basically the cream of the NCAA crop every year, starting at every position on the field in the NFL, a system like that just doesn't seem to translate.

    A very good point. Actually it might work a little better than what they are doing now.. I just think NFL defenses catch up pretty quick and it wouldn't be long before that system went the way of the Wildcat.
