So in his few minutes with the media Tamba was asked about the new coaches and the difference and he immediately responded with that. "demanding more mentally", I think he even might have said "much more". Have we had coaches who didn't demand enough from our players previously? Is that why we are so "talented" but never winners? Stuff like this gets me really excited.

Also, he said that he can't compete with Justin as an athlete and it isn't even close. Houston's gonna be a rockstar OLB for years.

I loved when he spoke about Houston. Hali said he benched 360 for 6 reps? That is INSANE for a natural (knock on wood) athlete, who also has to focus on cardio and flexibility.

Unlike Jarvis Jones, Houstons athletic ability was never in question coming out of the draft, that i remember at least. Im looking for a huge year from him.

Suttons defense demands movement and like TJ said to media that they're moving all over the defense, you have to have the mental aspect to excel in this attack style defense.

DJ said this:
Quote:
"All the blitzing. Personally, me doing different responsibilities as far as blitzing or covering tight ends here and there, it's testing my skills as a player and it tests everybody on this whole defense to play at a high level and you have to do your job; if you do your job, this defense will work for sure."

I find it sad (though refreshing) that we're excited over the people being paid millions of dollars being asked to be more mentally committed to the game/gameplan.

I absolutely think Romeo's D was too simple and too safe. Which is exactly why it only worked some of the time.

Didn't see a link, but this looks to be the same stuff...

Quote:
“These (coaches) came from systems where they attacked. Nothing against our old system but there wasn’t attacking. We’re looking forward to this defense because (it allows the Chiefs) to attack, shoot gaps and push guys back and make plays.”



I love this! and it will only help Alex and the offense. Right away in the preseason games, we'll get a real sense of how well the KC offense has learned to counter the attacking styles of D. Going up against the Saints and 49ers defense will be a strong test (remember, the Saints now have Rob Ryan and he will be looking to test out his attacking style with the new team).

The Chiefs better be on their A game for the pass block adjustments and receiver hot routes.

I really liked that quote as well. The fact that these guys will openly admit that the DL was never supposed to penetrate or attack and that this one does really excites me. I want to see Dontari just shoving fools like rag dolls this year instead of just holding his ground and hoping some other guy makes the play.

I'm intrigued to see what happens to Jackson with this shift as well. I don't honestly know what to expect out of him. It has been well accepted that he has been very good against the run and god awful against the pass. But how much of that was the scheme? It is very possible he could actually be a fairly poor or mediocre run defender that was masked by that being his only job, or that he is a solid pass rusher, but that was being under-utilized by the scheme. Him and Poe will be interesting to watch this year.

I think this is Poe's scheme. Let him 1 gap, and get upfield.

As for Jackson, Will be interesting, Sutton has him lining up all over and he' in a contract year.

Poe has an unreal burst for someone his size. The comparisons to Ngata Holati were not just smoke.

The one I want to see in the one gap is Alpha Bailey: sudden and explosive.

That is insane, but what's more insane is that Hali really said, " he can put 4 plates on each side and rep it 4 times."

That's gonna be FOUR HUNDRED and FIVE lbs (405 lbs). So he very well may be the strongest on the team lb for lb. Although, I wouldn't be surprised to see McCluster throwing up twice his weight at a measly 360.

Undoubtedly. I never minded the Poe pick. I greatly minded Crennell making the Poe pick.

Poe is going to establish himself as an elite NT in this scheme.

You're right. I didn't count the bar as an extra 45.
