A way Chiefs can create pressure without both EDGE rushers: the zone blitz

A way Chiefs can create pressure without both EDGE rushers: the zone blitz

What is a zone blitz and how does it fit into Bob Sutton’s pass rush scheme? Quick. What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Kansas City Chiefs outside linebacker Justin Houston dropping into coverage? Is it pure anger at Bob Sutton? Is it a lack of a pass rush? Is it Houston running 40 yards downfield in an attempt to cover a really good wide receiver in a very important game with a blitz that didn’t get home and a safety who may or may not have been in the wrong spot leading to a giant play that was especially backbreaking and now you have to take a walk to calm...

Chiefs open to moving their outside linebackers around this season

Chiefs open to moving their outside linebackers around this season

Chiefs outside linebackers coach Mike Smith wants his best players against the opposing offense’s weakest links. Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton, cornerbacks coach Al Harris and outside linebackers coach Mike Smith all spoke to the media following the team’s sixth OTA practice on Thursday, and one thing common theme is beginning to emerge. The tone the 2018 version of the Chiefs defense is looking to set is one of aggression.

Arrowheadlines: Dee Ford could be the ‘biggest X-factor’ for Chiefs

Arrowheadlines: Dee Ford could be the ‘biggest X-factor’ for Chiefs

The latest 2018 NFL season: One key homegrown player for each AFC team | NFL.com The Chiefs found another budding star up front in defensive end Chris Jones. If Ford could provide another edge-rushing complement to Justin Houston, the maligned Chiefs defense would really be cooking with gas. Ford, coming off back surgery, might only be on the roster because his $8.7 million salary was guaranteed for injury. Only one year removed from a 10-sack campaign, a revived Ford could be the biggest x-factor in Kansas City. There just isn't another player on the roster with the potential to provide...

Justin Houston: “I want to attack the weakest link”

Justin Houston: “I want to attack the weakest link”

Houston said he is willing to play anywhere, wants to attack the other team where its weak We’ve become accustomed to watching Justin Houston at the left outside linebacker position since the Kansas City Chiefs selected him with the No. 70 overall pick in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Over that time period from then to now, Houston has recorded 69.5 sacks, a total good for No. 4 in Chiefs franchise history. But just because that is what we’re used to seeing doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll see it in 2018. “I want to be able to attack the weakest link,” Houston said when...

Why are there no reports coming out of Chiefs OTAs?

Why are there no reports coming out of Chiefs OTAs?

Kansas City Chiefs OTAs began on Tuesday, and someone in the AP comments asked why there have been no reports. There have been no reports because the first two OTA practices have not been open to the media. The first Chiefs media availability is this Thursday. Here’s what we know: Last season, when OTAs were open to the media every day, Eric Berry, Justin Houston and Marcus Peters didn’t show, so reporters asked Chiefs head coach Andy Reid about it multiple times (Keep in mind OTAs are voluntary).
