Thoughts after Chiefs vs Chargers Game, Week 15
I’m not sure if I’m on board with the thought that Sutton needs to be fired. The defense has been regressing the last three years, but I think with all of the changes this past year should be enough to keep sutton for next year.
If you fire Sutton, you have to replace him with someone who will do a better job. Mike Macdonald, LB coach for the Ravens is a good option but Reid is loyal to a fault. If the Chiefs fire Sutton, Reid will be the one hiring his replacement. My question is, can we trust Reid to make that decision? I’m not sure we can.
I think they need to fix interior linebackers and the secondary. The secondary couldn’t cover even for 2.5 seconds against the chargers while the chiefs had plenty of pressure on Rivers all game long. Not a good sign, it means there is either a lack of speed in the secondary and/or a lack of talent.
I wouldn’t mind it if the chiefs cut Justin Houston and use the cap savings to resign other Chiefs players. He has not proven to be worth his contract for this season.
