KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs defense has lived by the bend-but-don't-break mantra the past few years under Romeo Crennel. Well, that's out the window now.
New defensive coordinator Bob Sutton would prefer to attack from the word, ``Hike,'' and during the first week of organized team activities, his players have taken quite the shine to it.
The Chiefs only intercepted seven passes a year ago, tied for last in the league, and managed to come up with six fumble recoveries. But the new system under Sutton is designed to create confusion for opposing offense and, in theory, lead to more sacks and turnovers.
Asked about the defense, cornerback Brandon Flowers said: ``I love it. We're coming to get the quarterback every play, and as a defensive back, you love that.''
