    Spineless!!!!!!!

    Your team went to the playoffs last year, KC no longer has Hunt and probably won’t have Tyreek, and your going way out on the limb and saying your d will be really good.......
    Look up the word Bold and get back to us ��
    did you not read the post you just quoted? how come the patriots almost always split with the dolphins? answer that question and then we might be able to continue this "debate"

    the gus bradley defense doesn't need innovation. it didn't need innovation in Seattle, it doesn't need innovation in Jacksonville, and it doesn't need innovation in LA either.

    his mistake was playing too much zone and not adjusting, as well as not having even one healthy LB'er except for pure scrubs. if you want to say he got out coached in that game i won't argue with you but making concept changes to his defense isn't the answer. the defense works well as is.
    He's always been a zone guy. In Seattle they played almost exclusively cover 3 press. They have they free safety high, and the corners play press on the receivers and match the receivers vertical stem, but play cover 3 once the receiver breaks. But he also had a pass rush. In Jacksonville same thing. With San Angeles (and I admittedly didn't watch all of every game) but it seemed more cover 3 without the press.

    The changes that need to be made to the defense don't have to be whole sale, but he needs to be able to mix more coverages. There are lots of little adjustments he can make which change coverage but still give similar looks. Playing cover 3 press you can easily change between cover 3 press and cover 1 press, if the receivers are running vertical routes the defense will be cover 1 anyways. You can align in your regular cover 3 press setup and drop the strong safety late and play cover 2 press, which would actually be a pretty good look to mix in. Mix in some Tampa 2, which again you can run from that cover 3 press look.

    The biggest thing against QBs like Brady, Roethlisberger and Mahomes (small sample size) is confusing them by changing coverages from play to play. Never show a consistent look and never be scared to change it up.

    But yes you do need to get pass rush as well, and obviously it's better if you can get it from 4 rushers. We'll see if they fixed that? As for the LBs do you believe Perryman can stay healthy for an entire season?

They went against the Patriots and once again heavily used 7 DBs against a team that will take what you give them and exploit matchups.

    Whether they were weak at LB or not, using that game plan against the Pats was just a stupid thing to do. Which is why they gave up more first downs than they had plays (24 to 23) in the first half, along with 367 yards and trailed 35-7 at the half.

    Whether the Chargers rank top 5 in defense in the regular season or not, they won't go anywhere in the playoffs without more innovation (such as a new game plan) from Gus Bradley. The biggest improvement the Chargers can make this year is making their scheme more versatile, playing more coverages (they're a heavy cover 3 team) and giving the opposition more things to see post snap. They've got some good pieces there, but it'll be wasted without some serious evolution from their DC.

    I like both of your predictions about the chiefs but even if reek gets thrown to the dogs i think that offense will still be potent. but yeah, saying mahomes will fall back to earth isn't really bold, it's pretty much inevitable in my mind.

    i do think the broncos will be improved this season and be more competitive in the division but it will depend on the play of JF as well as depend how improved that OL actually is.

    yeah raiders will likely still be bad, they are a couple years away at least IMO.

    also at some point baps will have an injury excuse...wait that's not bold ha ha!
    the chargers went on a 3 year ride through Injury hell that no other team had to endure during that span, so i mentioned those injuries being a big part of the reasoning behind their struggles. the last two years have been better and no mention of injuries, so i'm thinking that actually is a bold prediction.

    I was actually pretty spot on with those "excuses" because they went from being decimated and only winning 5 games as well as losing to the historically bad browns team. to being considered one of the more talented teams in the NFL virtually over night.

    it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why.

    Bold prediction..............

    Chiefs will only muster between 7 & 9 wins at the most. Mahomes won't duplicate last year and teams have a full year of tape to make some changes. Hill gone hurts. Defense took a step backwards, not forwards. Running game will be mediocre.

    Chargers will lose week 1 against a tough Colts team but will go on a 6 game tear but slow a bit to be 8-3 at the bye. After the bye they will only must 2 wins to finish 10-6 but win the AFC West. Rivers will be in the MVP talk up to the bye week but father time will slow him down to close the season.

    Denver will surprise the doubters with a controlled steady offense and the defense will be back to their nasty form to finish 10-6 and get a wildcard birth. Von Miller will come just shy of 20 sacks on the season with 18 and be in the MVP conversation. Lindsey will have 1800 all purpose yards and Noah Fant will be the next great TE with over 1,000 receiving yards and 11 TD's. This will merit him a chance at ROY....

    Raiders will continue to Raider winning 5 games on the year. There will be some improvement all around but the offense doesn't muster enough to score points. Carr will lead the league in INT's and Gruden will finally move on in the Off-season with a new QB to lead them into Vegas, where 15 players will miss 4 games to open the 2020 season being there's just too many things that can get them in trouble in "sin-city".

    don't you have anything ignorant to bring to the discussion like usual? or is it just whining now?
