Last year, I didn't watch a whole lot of the Chiefs. Part of that was because of the misery that came with it, and the other part was that I didn't have cable (poor college kid). Now that I have been watching them every Sunday, I find myself frustrated with one aspect of our otherwise outstanding defense...
He routinely gives up the deep ball, and misses tackles because of really, really poor angles. I honestly think the guys on the sub-packages could do a better job. Quintin Demps, in particular, has been pretty impressive to me as he leads the team in interceptions.
Just today, the Ravens released safety Michael Huff. Now, we Chiefs fans are familiar with his ability, as he was the Raiders' franchise player from a couple of years ago. He also has nice speed and tackling ability. Whatever reason the Ravens had for releasing him don't seem to compare to his real ability to play the safety position. The emergence of Matt Elam doomed his standing with the starting team, and his release could make him a cheaper option to bring in, ultimately strengthening the overall depth of the secondary--potentially replacing Kendrick Lewis as he is in a contract year.
The Chiefs may not have cap space to bring in a guy like Michael Huff, but nevertheless need to upgrade from Kendrick Lewis in the coming season. We cannot afford to lose games because our secondary gives up the deep ball, and in the postseason, that's a huge issue.
