In a quarterback-driven league, it is hard to say that there are a lot of good defenses in the NFL. Many quarterbacks are finding it easy to throw the football with a good offense to work with.
Ten quarterbacks, including rookie Cam Newton, exceeded the 4,000-yard passing mark in 2011. Ten years ago, Kurt Warner threw for 4,830 yards. Coming in second place was Rich Gannon, throwing for 3,828.
Many defensive coordinators are struggling to find ways to limit the hot hand that quarterbacks have nowadays. However, Romeo Crennel can find a way to get his Chiefs defense to not fall victim of the quarterback domination.
With pass-rushers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston on board, the Chiefs defense can't allow opposing quarterbacks to be given time to make the throws they want to make. By doing so, Hali and Houston will help the team and provide pressure, forcing plays to end sooner than the opposing offensive coordinator would like.
