The Lounge>Chiefs hire Steve Spagnuolo as new defensive coordinator
TLO 04:33 PM 01-24-2019

The #Chiefs are hiring Steve Spagnuolo as their new defensive coordinator, sources say. The former #Giants DC and interim HC/#Rams HC began his NFL coaching career as an #Eagles assistant under Andy Reid. Now rejoins Big Red in KC.

Given Spygate 2.0 and Spags' proven success against Belicheat, it's looking like a pretty good hire. Of course a few weeks ago there was a lot of despair about the defense after the Titans game. Guess time will tell over the long haul. Hopefully they can get some better linebackers in the draft.

Itís pretty obvious he was a good hire 13 games into the season. Thereís no need to even talk about the past. Have you watched the Chiefs at all?
Sample size.

Bullshit. The improvement is very clear 13 games in. Whether it’s coaching, scheme, adjustments, communication etc. it’s been a significant improvement across the board.

They deactivated Pennel for that game. Huge mistake. Spags appears to have learned from it

Dude. Spags has been a huge improvement from last year.

It's silly to say otherwise.

We get it. Spags was a terrible head coach, and you had to suffer through the brunt of it. Sorry to hear that.

He's not a head coach here. He's a defensive coordinator. And through his DC record outside of NY looks pretty pitiful, he's a clear fucking upgrade over Sutton. I think coaches evolve and a lot of it depends on support, both from the rest of the coaching staff as well as the players.

Spagnuolo CAN field a great defense. He's had trouble more often than not, but he's demonstrated before that he can do it, and it really wasn't all that long ago when he did it.

In the meantime, what we have to judge him is that YES the defense in KC is unequivocally improved from last year, and the scheme/system appears to be a better fit moving forward in terms of finding the talent to play within the scheme and make it work. The LBs are FAR less of a liability this year, and the defensive line is drastically improved. I think it would have been a lot harder to keep Sutton and magically procure a starting NT, new ILBs, new safeties, and new CBs who didn't suck in his shitty 3-4 that Tony Romo could call out and predict doom upon in the goddamn AFC Championship.

It has definitely improved but we'll see how they do in the playoffs. If they do good rest of the season but then in the playoffs get lit up it won't mean much.

So while I am as excited as anyone here I'm cautious because we all know the history of this franchise in the postseason. Lets see how the rest of the season plays out. So far so good but I've seen this story before. Hopefully the ending is different this time.

You are spot on my friend !!!:-) This defense only gets better because these players are now starting to get Spags schemes down and what he wants specifically each game. You can really see that they are truly a solidified unit out there playing as a team and for each other.

What a difference a year makes

Saw these tweets randomly on twitter.

There is zero accountability on that side of the football. Zero. Justin Hamilton calling out Houston and it's December and no can get aligned. No accountability from Andy to Bob to the position coaches to the players. Embarrassing. https://t.co/v1w8TKrfWp

In regards to the 30th ranked run defense, they’ve gotten much better there as the season has progressed. 8 weeks ago they were awful. Since the Denver game they are 12th in the league in run defense.

How about the games with Pennel and without him?

They need to give the guy a 2-3 year extension.
