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.

I think you're right unless they cut Berry. That might change the dynamic since Berry is "his boy".

That white tee played more snaps than Berry

Berry isn't getting cut.

Sutton's regular season overall performance here was acceptable. His post-season Ds were an abomination. It really can't get worse.

Looks like I won't be using Chiefs defense in Madden anymore

Give it time. You may be pleasantly surprised. I would not call you wrong.

Spags with good talent= above average defense.

Spags with talent similar to this season's defense= similar result.

It wouldn't shock me to see the Chiefs D go from bad to average. Still not impressed with the hire.

First round exit to the Browns at Arrowhead in Jan 2020?

I think this guarantees Houston stays, mostly because Ford likely will not. Hope he’ll restructure but either way they have the cap to keep paying Houston and can make a year to year decision on whether to continue that

I'll reserve judgement of Spagnuolo until we see the defense in 2019. I do know that what happened in overtime against Tom Brady isn't acceptable in regards of playcalling. No way you give Tom Brady the same look over and over again. Especially when you don't take away Edelman on either 3rd and long situation.

I think with this change the hardest part will be Veach finding the players to fit Spag's scheme. Dee Ford for example is an interesting dilemma now.

He's sure had an up and down career. Let's hope he's in an up cycle now.

Yeah but presumable we already found two good OLBs

So who gets fired from the coaching staff on the defensive side of the ball or was Sutton the fall guy?

No. It's about the most uninspiring hire Andy could make.

But being realistic, I don't think good candidates were going to be ok with having asst's already in place being forced on them. A Richard, Hewitt or a Rex Ryan likely wasn't going to have the DL coach already picked.

Maybe some insight about what spagnuolo is thinking. He mentions MOBP (missed opportunity for a big play). It does sound a little like bend don't break. But it seems to emphasize taking chances to make big stops. We've seem several games where we dropped key INTs. We sat way too far back in passive D at the end of the NE game.

Read another article that spagnuolo has talked to guys like urban meyer about stopping the spread. I have a feeling he's been studying up a ton on the new nfl offenses in his off time. I don't think we quite know what he has up his sleeve. Keep in mind at the end of Reid's days in Philly, people had questioned if he lost his offensive touch.

Not sure i totally agree with the mentality. Think fangio and Martindale have shown that defenses can stop the modern nfl offense. But it may give insight into where he might lean.
