The Kansas City Chiefs have had one of the more explosive offenses in recent memory. They can score in bunches, and they can score quickly, like 13 seconds quick.
Just ask the Buffalo Bills.
The offense can also be complex. We hear players talking all the time about implementing and inserting a new play into the playbook, and how much they work on it before that happens. This offense is no different. It may be one of the hardest to learn, and that’s how Andy Reid and Eric Bieniemy like it to be. The harder it is to learn, the harder it is for opposing teams’ defenses to catch on.
Imagine coming in as a rookie wide receiver trying to learn this offense. I’m sure it can be challenging. The Chiefs rookie Skyy Moore is having to learn it all, in such a short amount of time.
Chiefs offense starting to “click” with Skyy Moore
Having Patrick Mahomes as your quarterback gives you the freedom to be complex in your offense. The Chiefs have been that since 2018, and I can promise you Alex Smith’s offense was not near as complex.
“It’s going to be a process because it is a complex offense, but it is starting to click,” Moore told reporters on Thursday.
“I feel like everything in this offense is counters, like we run this play, and this play is a counter to that play. Once you get the basics of everything, it starts to click a whole lot faster.”
It’s impressive that Moore is already getting in-synch with Andy Reid’s playbook. As he said, it’s a complex system and it’s one that hasn’t treated rookies well in the past.
The Chiefs will have an even more overpowered offense when Moore learns the full playbook come the regular season. Add in JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Mecole Hardman, Travis Kelce, and now Moore, and it’s going to be crazy.
Now the Chiefs just need to go out there and get the job done. It’s easier said than done, but this roster can do it. This offense can do it, and Moore has the potential to become the rookie of the year.
