How Brett Veach can maximize Steve Spagnuolo's scheme
The Kansas City Chiefs are going through a defensive transition.
The 3-4 base defense the Chiefs have been running for years under former defensive coordinator Bob Sutton has been thrown away. Old faces — such as Derrick Johnson, Tamba Hali, Justin Houston, Eric Berry, and Dee Ford — have been shown the door.
Under new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, this is a new era in Kansas City. Instead of the rigid scheme Sutton ran, the Chiefs have a new 4-3 Under hybrid scheme that is built around getting pressure.
This style of defense will be refreshing for Chiefs fans. But how is the defense going to be built?
