Great Article....read it...

Hey guys, big time article on Thigpen and the offensive changes we have made on SI.com....read it if you haven't. (H/T to NJChiefsfan in Fanshots)

"Thigpen, who starred in a spread offense at Coastal Carolina, has benefited from offensive coordinator Chan Gailey incorporating some familiar spread-like concepts into the game plan. Using their "Ace" personnel packages (one back, two tight ends and two wide receivers), the Chiefs have been showing a four-receiver look with Tony Gonzalez, Dwayne Bowe and Mark Bradley lined up at a variety of spots. "

 

"Gailey has also helped his star pupil by increasing the use of their "Red Ball" offense in recent weeks. "Red Ball", the Chiefs' version of the no-huddle, is used to quicken the pace and keep defenses in simpler looks. Defensive coordinators are reluctant to aggressively come after the quarterback with a number of exotic blitzes when the game is moving at a frenetic pace. Thus, Thigpen has been able to attack while working in rhythm, and the results have been so impressive that the Chiefs are expanding their offense to feature more of the no-huddle, spread offense."
