Is Martyball Back in Kansas City?

Scout.com seems to think so.

He decided to send out the field goal team, and Lawrence Tynes kicked the Chiefs to a 3-0 halftime lead.

That one decision, that one play, set the tone for the rest of the season. Edwards isn't going to take risks. He is going to play the odds, minimize his risks, and he is going to take the field goal. In a nutshell, he is committed to "Marty Ball." And that's fine. That could be the best way for the Chiefs to win games this season.


Jeff Rake of Scout may be onto something here.  Still, two games into the season is pretty early to be assessing and predicting what a coach will do for an entire season.  The seeds are planted though.  Low-risk, grind it out games may be back in vogue in KC.
