Chiefs want to turn it over more on defense from KC Star
"If the ball is out, we want to be there. You've got to do that every time. It's a habit. We tell the players all the time that they're not going to be able to turn that up on game day. You're either going to do that every play or it's not going to happen when you most need it," said Sutton.
Several highlight reel plays from Chiefs from KC Star
After an uneven start that began with several incomplete passes, the skill players really picked it up despite a faint drizzle that never really stopped. WR Donnie Avery kicked things off by catching a pass on a slant route in front of S Neiko Thorpe and broke for a big gain. On the very next play, Avery made a diving catch near the sideline on an out route that drew applause from the crowd. He caught another deep ball from quarterback Alex Smith and finished off the practice with an over-the-shoulder catch near the sideline in which he may or may not have managed to keep his feet inbounds.
"I went back and explored those offenses to see what was clicking, and it's really what I grew up on way back with Green Bay. I really stressed on bringing back our core West Coast stuff and mix that with the abilities and talents we have offensively, and put guys in positions to be successful."
The signing of Missouri's Brad Madison as a college free agent already looks like a good one for the Chiefs.

Right now, they are just in the experimental phase of the process. Pederson commented on the subject, saying "it's not a staple of the offense, but we're going to continue to explore it, to see if it can help us offensively. It really gives the guys some fun at it and an opportunity to be explosive."
