Chiefs Name Bob Sutton as Defensive Coordinator (http://www.kcchiefs.com/news/article-2/Chiefs-Name-Bob-Sutton-as-Defensive-Coordinator/9c61cef8-7fcd-4197-a418-06b7c4a9f1f8) What do you all think? I like it for now until I hear if he wants the 3-4 or the 4-3.

Gotta love the way they are getting things put together as fast as they are. They ain't screwing around.

The new GM will probably come once the Packers season ends.

It would have been nice if clark would have got involved sooner than he did. I like this pace we are on.

True regarding Clark, but at least he moved swiftly and decisively once the season was over and didn't wait around.

Sutton coached a 3-4 Defense in NY, and I like the hire because they are not going to insist on a 4-3 given the players the Chiefs have on their Defense. That shows common sense & logic, something that Pioli never demonstrated while he a GM in KC.

This ^^.

We have spent 4 years worth of high draft picks putting together the pieces for a 3-4 defense. To switch back now would be a big waste in my opinion.

He seems really versatile, like he's going to work with the players on the roster and play to their strengths. Will probably keep the 3-4 and work with that, but try to get the most out of those players. Seems like a "safe" pick, which might be smart so that Reid can just hand him the keys to the defense and not worry about it. Not have to micromanage it. Reid can just concentrate on fixing the offense. I just hope Sutton is aggressive enough with his blitzing. I guess if he's from the Rex Ryan school, he probably is.

His def wasnt that good when he was the cord before rex got there.

He also didn't have the talent and went from a 3-4, to a 4-3 sans the right personnel back to the 3-4. Now if our defense was in the shape of our offense and needed that kind of focus I wouldn't like the hire. With the talent w have he just needs to maximize the potential. The pieces are there and one would think a little of Rex has rubbed off in his defensive schemes. So if our offense scores the D will be just fine.

I mean 3 different head coaches have kept him on staff there. To me that's a good sign.

+1. It would also be fixing something that isn't broken, which never bodes well.

Yes it would have been good for him to get involved sooner.

Like them or not, we can give credit for his involvement to the crazies that flew the banner. Those guys showed Clark, and the rest of the football world what kind of a joke the Chiefs have/had become.

I may add I did not agree with any of that kind of action, but I give credit where credit is due.

If he would have got involved sooner what was he going to do fire the HC and promote one of the assistants as interm, have the interm win games then have the quandary he had with Crennel or just wait until the end of season to do it right?

I do not think the "crazies" really had a thing to do with it. You don't think he knew the team stunk when we end up with the #1 pick in the draft? Or the empty seats on game day? Or the comments most commentators were making? Or the drop in revenue? Maybe not in ticket sales because they were season ticket holders, but when you are missing 20,000 people from stands that is around 5,000 cars at $27 each equals $135,000? Say those 20,000 only bought one drink and one thing to eat that is $120,000 every game right and I bet parking and concessions dropped at least 1/2 million a game. Lets say that was only the last 4 home games we are looking at $2 million. He also has to expect a big drop in season tickets sales for 2013 if he did not do something, the fans staying home even though they had a ticket and leaving a stands not full told him that.

If you truly believe the "crazies" are what did it I have some land to sell you.

^^THIS is exactly what needs to be corrected by the new regime & why I'm hopeful that John Dorsey becomes the GM.

I love long-tenured coaches. Don't know hardly anything about Sutton. I like his resume, though.

FLIPPIN' SWEET !! And it's just been posted at NFL.com

It's said that he's done a heck of job scouting for the Pack & the Chiefs could certainly use some excellence in the scouting and player talent evaluation that hasn't been seen in ages.

Crossing fingers on this.

Yeah I have heard he is THE guy when it comes to evaluating talent.

Remember when I said Clark didn't give a rats arse I was wrong, Clark Hunt means business and he wants to win. Soooo happy to be wrong.

I felt the same about Clark not givin a crap. Could've never been more wrong.

Hunt is not a meddler like other owners but gotta hand it to him. When its time to do something he does not mess around , and goes for what he believes is in the best interest of the team.
