Understandably, Steve Spagnuolo is a sizzling commodity proper now.
Kansas City Chiefs fans waited a extensive time for a new defensive coordinator, and they bought a person in the sort of a guy with 18 years of NFL coaching working experience.
So the Chiefs ongoing to feed the beast Thursday with two new movies of ol’ Spags:
“The emphasis on fundamentals and just developing a rock-stable foundation will be the main aim.”

SPAGNUOLO: “I feel there’s sufficient pieces there that we can mould some thing collectively. Search. I feel people today get a tiny way too wrapped up in the 4-3s and the 3-4s. Definitely the 3 issues that are important to defensive football—that’s getting able to defeat blocks, good hard work and getting able to deal with. Now that has nothing at all to do with the 4-3 or 3-4. So the emphasis on fundamentals, and just developing a rock-stable foundation will be the main aim, and then from there, we’ll make a decision 4-3s, 3-4s, 5-6s, whichever it is likely to be. 5-6 adds up to 11, proper? We can do that.”
The guy’s bought jokes! 5 + 6 = 11!
The unlucky actuality is there were points previous year in which fans would have taken five defensive linemen and six linebackers on the industry.
By the way, our very own Craig Stout looks to have been proper on the cash with his takes Thursday morning.
Spagnuolo discusses new defensive line mentor Brendan Daly in video two (from aged good friend BJ Kissel):
“You cannot argue with his results…he is bought 3 Tremendous Bowl rings.”

SPAGNUOLO: “You just can’t argue with his results. He’s bought 3 Tremendous Bowl rings now, and just in watching the Patriots engage in protection these earlier five or six years, I can see Brendan Daly‘s handprint all more than it. I really like the way he coaches, his electricity, what he can carry to the desk. Even as a D-line mentor, I feel Brendan has a good feel for overall—all-11, back close, up entrance, so that is likely to be truly valuable for me.”
Daly is an intriguing addition, provided that it looks he was passed more than for the Patriots defensive coordinator posture, New England rather likely with Greg Schiano. Spagnuolo’s text, “three Tremendous Bowl rings,” do converse volumes, and looking at into that quick profile, it appears like Daly may possibly be serving Spagnuolo as an assistant defensive coordinator of types.
Daly will mentor the defensive line in Kansas City and has also been named the operate sport coordinator, so very own Aly Trost set collectively a glance at the Patriots protection in opposition to the operate in the course of his tenure.
An additional a person from BJ:
SPAGNUOLO: “Well right after I arrived listed here, the initial detail that went as a result of my mind is I hope [Patrick Mahomes] didn’t use up all his fantastic plays (laughing). He’s really amazing to enjoy. I described this: if you could be in an business that has a best-notch head mentor, which the Kansas City Chiefs do, and the quarterback posture is finding that sort of engage in, then you bought a chance to be really fantastic. Our (defensive) aspect of the ball and our career is likely to be, make absolutely sure that they rating less points than our offense scores, and we’d like to do a tiny bit far better than that—really be a person of the factors why we earn soccer video games. That is the most critical detail.”
This is relatively cliché things, absolutely sure, but I do like the ultimate position.
The issue with the Chiefs protection all previous 12 months is that it felt like its ceiling was executing just sufficient to earn. Spagnuolo wishes to be a motive the Chiefs earn.
