Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton is installing his 3-4 attacking schemes and he feels the players like it. In years past, the 3-4 was a read and react, a more cerebral style of playing defense. However, Sutton wants to replace cerebral with aggressive force, he wants quarterback to know every play will be dangerous; every drop back could be bad. He’s trying to change the mindset and the culture of a defense that for too long has been on the losing side of doing things. Sutton isn’t void of players and the reality is if it all pulls together, the Chiefs could have an upper echelon defensive unit. "One of the things that we’ve really tried to get everybody to understand is that we’re trying to develop a culture here, not only how we do something but the way we do it," Sutton said, via Reid Ferrin of KCChiefs.com. "To me, that’s just as critical as learning the X’s and O’s, the blitzes, the coverages, etc., because I think that’s the one element that allows you to sustain through all parts of the season. We know every season in the NFL has its ups and downs. When you have this culture, which is just a learned behavioral pattern, I think it really helps you. That’s one of the things that the guys have really tried to embrace, buy into. Anytime they start to reflect those same views out there, I think you’re moving in the right direction.”
