Does anyone have a subscription to the Athletic? Seth Keysor has been putting out in-depth Chiefs articles and the only way to access it is through their website. Was hoping someone had already subscribed and would be willing to share the content with the rest of CP.

Seth Keysor‘s latest on Andy’s goal line offense.

This is how good The Athletic is....

https://theathletic.com/515593/2018/...the-goal-line/


Quote:
Coaching is more than half the battle at the NFL level.


This is something that gets forgotten year after year. Quarterback is king, but a coaching advantage provides a team with as much an edge as having the superior passer. An easy example of this can be found in last year’s Rams becoming an offensive juggernaut just a year after having one of the worst offenses in the NFL. The reality is that the talent level at the professional level is close enough — except for the Buffalo Bills’ offense, but I digress — that the better-coached team with the better game plan will almost always walk away with the win.

On Sunday, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid reminded the entire NFL why the Chiefs have decimated the AFC West over the past several years, having lost only twice in the division since 2015 while winning 17 games: They have the best coach in the division, and it’s not particularly close.

Reid has a habit of throwing things at opponents that they aren’t prepared for early in the season, and yesterday’s game was no exception. For the second year in a row, Reid incorporated elements of college football into the offense, and the Chargers were completely baffled by it. The most glaring example came on two goal-line plays that were virtually identical.

The first came with 9:29 left in the third quarter, on the Chiefs’ first possession of the half. Kansas City was nursing a 17-12 lead, but had marched impressively down the field and were knocking on the door at the Chargers’ 1-yard-line. Many teams in that situation, despite all statistical evidence to the contrary, would line up heavy and try to ram the ball into the end zone against a stacked box. Instead, Reid completely “pantsed” the Chargers defense and created one of the easiest touchdowns ever seen at the NFL level.

The Chiefs lined up with three wide receivers (Chris Conley, Sammy Watkins and DeAnthony Thomas), one tight end (Travis Kelce) and one running back (Kareem Hunt). Hunt started the play lined up wide left, then was motioned into the backfield prior to the play. The purpose of this was to figure out what type of coverage the Chargers were running.

Once the motion is complete, the Chiefs are in a strange alignment, with Kelce and Thomas lined up as H-backs and Conley/Watkins lined up as receivers just outside of them. What follows is poetry in motion.


At the snap, Hunt takes off to his right as though he’s about to receive the handoff. At the same time, the entire offensive line moves to the right as though that’s the direction the run is going. To say the Chargers bit on the fake is like saying it’s hard having five kids (ahem): The words are technically correct, but they don’t remotely do justice to the truth of what occurred.

In the meantime, Thomas sprints left and receives a quick touch pass from Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. By the time he runs a few yards lateral to the line of scrimmage, he has nothing but clear space and six points in front of him.

So thorough is the Chargers’ befuddlement that only two Chiefs really need to execute any sort of blocking here. Kelce delivers a well-timed and very smart (in terms of angles and direction) shove to Chargers edge defender Melvin Ingram and removes what little chance he had of affecting the play. Conley has a corner who could potentially ruin the play but doesn’t seem to even realize what is happening until it’s too late (in his defense, neither did the rest of the defense, the viewers or the announcers). The play is so well-designed and executed that Kelce has literally no one to block as Thomas walks into the end zone.

For a play to work this well, a team must have threats to score from all over the field, and they must be facing the right kind of defense. Mahomes touched on that after the game.

“With the weapons we have, and with the threat of Kareem running it down there and Tyreek or [De’Anthony Thomas] on the sweep, it’s hard for defenses to kind of choose which one they’re going to try to take away. We had good man-zone [identifiers] on those, so I just read how we read it in practice and got it in those guys’ hands and they scored touchdowns.”

That’s a professional way of saying the Chargers were brutally unprepared to deal with that play from the Chiefs. In fact, they were so unprepared that Reid ran it back the very next quarter.

After a muffed punt by the Chargers, the Chiefs were in position to effectively put the game away, up 31-20 with the ball on the Chargers’ 1-yard-line. The Los Angeles defense held firm the first two downs and the Chiefs were facing a relatively crucial third down with 9:47 remaining in the game. The math was simple here: If Kansas City scored a touchdown and went up three scores, it would make any chance of a comeback a miracle. Settle for a field goal and the Chargers remain within two scores on a day quarterback Philip Rivers and Co. were having little problem moving the ball up and down the field.

Then Reid performed the NFL coaching equivalent of dunking in someone’s face and screaming at them while they’re on the ground.


There are only two real differences between this play and the first touchdown: one-man highlight reel Tyreek Hill is in Thomas’ spot, and Hunt motions to the backfield from the right side instead of the left side. Beyond that, the play is identical to the one the Chiefs scored on a mere quarter earlier. And the Chargers were caught just as unprepared. The only player who seems to see what is happening — even Ingram crashes inside despite what had happened earlier — is the one assigned to cover Kelce, but he gets sealed off and blocked into oblivion by the All-Pro tight end.

The timing required to make this play so difficult to defend is a privilege to watch. Reviewing it close up, Mahomes “passes” the ball to Hill directly underneath Hunt’s arm.


It’s impossible to execute a fake any more realistic than that because it’s impossible to come any closer to giving a runner the ball without actually giving him the ball. It’s truly some remarkable handling and timing by Mahomes, Hill and Hunt.

Plays like this get an entire team fired up, as they see that their coach is nine steps ahead of the opponent. Afterward, Mahomes was asked about how fun it is to run plays like this, whether in practice or in games.

“It’s really fun for me because it’s a passing touchdown,” Mahomes said, smiling. “It’s cool to get the ball out quick, and when you have No. 13 and No. 10 catching it with their speed and making plays, it’s always cool.”

There will be a lot of talk about Mahomes and Hill this week, and rightfully so. But it’s worth noting that Reid put the AFC West on notice that he will completely humiliate an opposing defense if it’s not prepared for anything, and especially if it doesn’t learn from mistakes. There’s no way Reid used up all the new tricks he has up his sleeve, and watching the rest of them come out over the course of this season is going to be quite a treat.

After all, it’s not every day you get to see a 60-year-old dunk on someone.

Same here. I don’t pay to get behind all those paywalls to read some columnist article. Put the best at one site, let me set up my feed. About as good as it gets.

I tried it for a week but ended up cancelling. The content is decent, but there just wasn't a lot of it compared to what you can get from the Star or Arrowhead Pride. Wish them the best, though.
