Daboll Speaks On Chiefs

Speaking for the first time as offensive coordinator of the Chiefs, Brian Daboll said he found the job attractive due to the leadership of the team.

“I think they have a good plan, I think they are organized and I think they understand what they want to get accomplished,” Daboll said Tuesday morning during a conference call with the Kansas City media. “These guys understand what it takes to win … There are good people here; I think it’s important to work with good people. It helps you build something together, collectively. Those were some of the critical factors that made my decision fairly simple.”

When asked what type of offense he plans to run, Daboll capsulized it in one word: attack.

“When you are an offensive football coach you want to attack the defense; sometimes that changes week to week,” Daboll said. “It’s important to be balanced to help the quarterback out. Utilize different personnel groups and formations. Sometimes we’ll move and shift, other times we’ll be stationary.

“You have to have the ability to get to an up tempo scheme, in a no huddle package. You have to try to keep defenses as off-balance as you can.”

His offenses attack and that’s also the way that Daboll coaches – aggressively.

“I’m a high energy, up tempo guy,” he said. “I expect perfection. I know that’s not possible most of the team, but I think we have to hold ourselves to a high standard in setting the tone and expecting the highest attention to detail from all of ourselves.”

    I truly wish the guy all the success in the world. His job “OC” is absolutely CRUCIAL to the success of this team. Iam rooting for this guy all the way!!!!

    I support Brian Daboll. He certainly attacked our defense last year. As Bob mentioned in another article, he helped Reggie Bush achieve 1000 yards rushing as well as Brandon Marshall receiving. He’s got more weapons with our team.

    The Chiefs need to settle on the final list of coaches and let them do their job for the next couple of years … consistency! No more revolving door for the OC office.

    The best way for Pioli to leave behind the Star article is to win. WIN!

    Go CHIEFS!

    I certainly hope he works out. I’ll be VERY interested in how the QB position is evaluated. That will tell us A LOT.

    Great hire expect offense put up way more pts this season. I expect this offense even with Cassel be top 10 in scoring next season. With so many weapons at skill position (Bowe, Breaston, Charles, Mcluster, etc) we need fix oline now then we will bust out.

    I’m interested in seeing if something can be made out of Cassel, but I don’t have any genuine confidence at this point that he is a long-term solution. I certainly don’t want to sit in the stands and continue to see what I’ve seen out of the QB position since Cassel arrived. A SERIOUS upgrade in QB play is DESPERATELY needed at Arrowhead.

    It is crunch time for Matt to make a leap in performance. He was completely outclassed by Orton in the last three games, and few in NFL circles have annointed Kyle has the second coming of Joe Montana.

    One thing is certain. With Daboll calling the plays, there will be no more of St. Haley the Martryr’s kooky playcalling by committee system. That in and of itself is a substantial step forward.

    Daboll is in every sense a young Todd Haley, in his temperament and style. I think he’ll be a great hire.

    Come to think of it he does remind one of a young Haley. I knew there was something I liked about the guy. But then again, as Ed will tell you, Matt Cassel is no Big Ben.

    As we enter into the doldrum period of the NFL off-season, we can spend more time focusing on our day jobs. We’re going into our 5th year of economic uncertainty leaving us all a little short tempered & questioning the sanity of getting pregnant and convincing ourselves that little Johnny or Susie has a bright future ahead of them.

    Same could be said about the KC Chiefs. We are going into our 42nd year of futility & uncertainty on all levels. We have at one time or another blamed the coach, the owner, the GM or the prized 1st round drafted player who ended up being a dud. Maybe bad luck or missed opportunities are to blame. As a dedicated lifelong fan who has spent literally Thousands of hard earned Dollars on related Chiefs tickets and goods with our iconic logo. Not to overlook the Tylenol, Excedrin, Pepto-Bismal, Tums, Jim Beam, Wild Turkey & Miller Beer (in the clear bottle) all of which to excess at times. How can I forget the Lazy Boys I have worn out or abused or the countless TV trays I have knocked over and how about the times I have had to defend (lie) to my wife that the new four letter words our little ones were getting in trouble for, did’nt come from me.

    Sometimes I think the Chiefs owe me big time. I’ve payed my dues… I’ve served my time…I want to feel like a Giants fan does right now. Why can’t I have what they have. Yes…I am whining. Yes I am giving up another year of my life as a Chiefs fan. Little Johnny & Susie are all grown now and have made me very proud. I have new little ones scampering & crawling around the house when they visit. Then on Sundays I put them on my lap & point out the team they should be rooting for. The wife & I buy them Chiefs Jammies & shirts etc. When they are old enough I will take them to Arrowhead & share some of my war stories with them. I want one of those stories to be the time we won the AFC Championship game in that stadium and the sights & sounds of that day I have never forgotten.

    Mr Hunt, I really want to tell them that story. Are you listening? You owe me…now make it so.
    Go Chiefs.

    Jimbo, I couldn’t agree more. We’ve been buying tickets, yelling in the stands and buying Chiefs merchandise through thick and thin. PLEASE, PLEASE give us a reward!

    I was in first grade when the Chiefs last won the Superbowl, and I remember sitting in the stands at the old KC Municipal Stadium. I’d sure love to see another Chiefs championship in my lifetime, and I’d like some longterm team success as vindication for sticking with the Chiefs through the many dark, nearly hopeless years.

    Amen, Jimbo and txchief.
