I am not sure how this is going to come out after writing this but here it goes.. While reading yet another article (Chiefs' Bob Sutton Avoiding Absolutes by Paul Heitman over at Arrowhead Addict) about my beloved 7-0 CHIEFS, this article coming from my second favorite fan site Arrowhead Addict. Sorry Arrowhead Pride for mentioning another sites article on your site, but as a misplaced CHIEFS fan from California I read everything I can from any site that has to do with my favorite football team the CHIEFS their division, upcoming opponents, the draft, trades, off-season, pre-season.... but I digress, if your still reading this fanpost your probably just like me. On another note I love Arrowhead Pride, from the all their staff, writers, to all the fans that post their own thoughts and comments, what you guys and gals do hear all year long is amazing!!! Thank you ALL so much for keeping me entertained all year long!!! Any way onto my original point.
I have completely enjoyed this season, as a 34 year old CHIEFS fan who's favorite "Old School" football memories are of 90's CHIEFS defense. I just can't help but feeling elated about how are TEAM has com together. For the defenses success, we as fans are giving a lot of credit to Defensive Coordinator Bob Sutton and rightfully so given all of the CHIEFS defensive accolades they have received this year so far. But what about the genius hiring Andy Reid made in Chris Ault, who was hired to help implement the Pistol Offense into our system, while teach our defense how to defend it? Look I'm not an X's and O's guru like some people here, but I can't help but think some of our teams defensive success has come partially from the Ault hire. When the CHIEFS face some of the most dynamic offenses in football by talent or scheme, we need our defense to be prepared for the new offensive trends they might see. I notice the attack style defense from Sutton's time with Rex Ryan and the Jets, but look at how our secondary and linbackers have been able to shut down offenses like Dallas and Philadelphia. I think a lot of our defensive scheme has been influenced by Ault. I am just so happy to see how Andy Reid has been able to come to Kansas City with such a terrific HC and Offensive background, and has been able to adapt his own style and system to fit his TEAM strengths the Defense. Reid even went out of his own comfort zone to assure our team could throw in a few different wrinkles into our offense and defense schemes. Anyway I have kept babbling long enough. What do you think has the Chris Ault hire helped turn our defense into the Elite unit it has become? With 2 games to come against Denver, SanDiego, and 1 agains Indianapolis and Washington, we need to be defensively ready for anything and I think we are the only defense that is. Anyway on to 8-0, this is and always will be the best TEAM with the best FANS in the NFL, win, loose, or draw. GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
