Tyler Thigpen Doesn't Sound Like A Fan Of Chiefs 2008 Defense

New, comments

Former Kansas City Chiefs QB Tyler Thigpen reunited with Chan Gailey in Buffalo inking a deal with the Bills this week. I think it's a good move for Thigpen because he's familiar with Gailey's offense and has had some success in it.

Back in 2008, Gailey was the Chiefs offensive coordinator and Thigpen started 11 games for the Chiefs under Gailey. Thigpen noted his time with the Chiefs in an interview with the Buffalo News and doesn't sound like a big fan of the 2008 Chiefs defense.

"For the most part, when you put up so many points on offense and the defense can't stop the opposing team, what good is that going to do at the end of the day? We go back and forth and that one time they stop you on offense, but our defense can't stop them that one time, they're going to outscore you."

I'd be upset if he weren't speaking the truth. Thigpen wasn't an all-world quarterback but he was the best option back then if you cared about putting points on the board. Unfortunately, the Chiefs 29th ranked defense couldn't keep them off the board.
