Mystery To Me, Part III.
I though Stephon Gilmore was spectacular this Preseason. He looked like he was going to be worth every cent they paid him. But it might have been at the cost of Malcolm Butler confidence. If it was, it was not worth the price.
I think it is also important to point out that KC's offense is not the offense that lost in the Playoff in January. That offense was built on an entire a regular season. KC's new offense was barely built in this Preseason. Yes, the veterans will be well-versed in the scheme, But they still have to get coordinated with each other again.
And KC has a very complicated offense that cannot be a perfect unit from day one. "Andy’s a west-coast offense disciple and that’s a very extensive system. I think it’s going to be within the west-coast family of what he does. I don’t think he’s going to come in and run the wish-bone. That being said, there’s a lot of ways to dress it up," BB said. "There’s a lot of ways to make it look different but it’s really the same to force different defensive adjustments or different personnel groups or run the same play but it’s on a different guy so the same player can’t really repeat his read on the play, things like that. He does a great job of that. It’s not like he comes in with a new offense every week.
"But it’s tough to defend because it’s sound. It’s well-balanced. They have complementary plays, so if you’re stopping one thing, they have something else they could go to, [and] vice-versa. They have play-actions that come off their running game and so forth. They know what they’re doing. They’re very experienced at it. They know how to attack you in all three phases of the game." But they are not the same team now that they wee last season.
The advantage KC has is that they have almost the same personnel as last
season. So they have more continuity going into the game. "They’re good on offense. They’re a well-balanced team, which there are a lot of teams in the NFL that can’t say that, but they’re one of them that can," BB said. "They’re at the top of the league in a lot of categories. They have a lot of good players. They’re a very experienced team. They don’t have a lot of new faces. They have a lot of people that are back. He has kept the guys that won for him last year that they went 12-4 with. So he’s obviously pretty happy with the team that he’s built. Not that he hasn’t made some key additions and continued to build on it, but he’s got a lot of people back with a lot of experience in what they’re doing. They can do more than some other teams just because they’ve done it over a period of time together."
This defense was decimated on the D-line. Now they have to step up and stop this well-coordinated and experienced offense. They are so over relying on Flowers and Wise that it can only be called unwise. Cassius Marsh had his three and only sacks last season. Which is a good, but scary, sign. But the Pats do have Van Noy. He can be a very effective stand up rusher. And if you give a guy like Tyreek Hill time…
Yikes! "He can attack the defense on all three levels. He’s a tough guy to defend. Tackling is an issue when he gets the ball. Sometimes they throw it to him, sometimes they hand it to him, sometimes he gets it on a kick return," BB said. "He can get it in a lot of different ways and it involves a lot of different players that might have to deal with him in one way or another. It’s a lot of stress on your team. It’s not like you just matchup one guy on him. Every guy on the team basically in the kicking game or on defense might have to deal with this player. Yeah, he’s fast, he’s quick and he’s a big playmaker." They have to stop him early, or he can go a long way on his
