    Default Fire Sutton and....

    OK, this probably won't happen. Sutton is not as bad as GRob (ooh I just got a nasty chill typing that name), but he does not know how to adjust. We could do a lot better for DC.

    Furthermore the title of this thread is somewhat hypothetical because I don't think Andy will fire his friend Sutton. That said, who would you want as the Chiefs next DC is by some miracle Sutton was dumped?... And why?

    - Wade Phillips?
    - Ray Horton?
    - Any of the recently fired HCs?

    Suttons problem is that he keeps believing his players are good enough to cover a receiver that a bad Qb is throwing to. At the start of the year we were looking at Cooper as a steal. He soon became a liability yet he kept leaving him out there on an island. They ended up Benching him and put Dunta Robinson in there until they remembered why Cooper was playing in the first place. At no point did I ever see this team this year play anything but Man to Man.

We can't even hold a 28 point lead is saddening.
    I totally disagree with the bolded part. I agree with the rest.

    All man to man... Your crazy. When you blitz you have to play cover 1 or man, howevr, rewatch the long pass to Hilton that gave them the lead, straight up Cover 2. No reason a single reciever gets over the top on two safeties. Right call that time of the game, very poor execution by two deep halves in cover 2.

    I believe the defense went from attack to preserve, and that was a big mistake.

    Yup! "Prevent" most always prevents you from winning the game.

    Well you can if you have that big a lead with less than five minutes to go in the game, but I've never been a big fan of the "prevent".

    Bottom line is that Bob Sutton has got to learn to make adjustments and do a better job of that. If he can't do that in 2014, then it's time to look for a new DC.

    exactly how I feel. Gotta give him a second year with some better players to work with. I'm not a fan of firing coaches or coordinators after 1 year. It's pretty hard to get players that run your scheme well in one year. Would like to see adjustments made as games progress. Not sure how much was poor planning an how much was poor play, but def need some change next year. Was happy to see the offense open up and feel good about it moving forward, especially if we can get some better wr, and add some depth at ol when Albert leaves. The future appears bright for us!!
    Doing my best to keep my sons memory alive!!!

    Spot on. And if you go that route, count on the Andrew Lucks, Peyton Mannings & Tom Bradys of the NFL to rip you apart every time.
