I mean say what about the superbowl, Gannon guided one of the NFLs best defenses this season. #7 in scoring defense and 1st in yard-per-game. That much of a pedigree alone makes him infinitely more qualified than Kliff Kingsbury ever was.

Still, how good of a head coach he will be is a complete mystery. Too many variables and unknowns to make any kind of solid conclusion.

What is certain is that he has the opportunity of a lifetime. Let's hope he makes the most of it.

The optimist in me likes that the HC and GM should be on the same page for a change. If Will Anderson or Jalen Carter are drafted they should get some reps as rookies.

In the first half, enough to make half time adjustments? Chiefs had 80 yards or so at half time and one offensive touchdowns. SMH.

Just something to complain about.

Correct and then they made adjustments attacking his rush 4 man coverage and went on to score on every possession and the only incompletion was a throw away.

That's the point. He is really really passive.

things i learned:

Kyler is in the facility
He seems genuinely happy
he is wearing a Smiths t-shirt

Kyler's behavior was really like in awe, "wow, I am meeting a real NFL coach", while Gannon when he hears he is in the facility acts like a parent when someone tells him their kid is doing something wrong lol

TBF we blitzed Mahomes a ton and Vance got ripped for that since Mahomes is best against the blitz. You really have no chance against Mahomes unless you can get to him with 4. I think the loose field just killed the Eagles edge rush and that was the ballgame.

I love the energy. He jogged over to meet Kyler.

I'm a big believer in tone setters. If you can get people to be on the same page and to believe in your program, you have a chance to build something.

Mahomes got the ball off pretty quickly most the game, and in someone's analysis of the Eagles' Dline, they slipped on 38% of dropbacks.

Their whole strength is on their Dline and they got neutered, because they are built on speed around the edge. Chiefs are built on bull rush.
Hopefully he’ll learn
