Maybe, just maybe, if you knew football, you'd understand that not every team plays the same type of 3-4 defense.
You're right. It would be pretty stupid of me to say something like this:

Did the Chiefs really want two guys that couldn't rush the passer as DEs, or did they fit them into their defense because that's all Dorsey and Jackson turned into?

If they wanted DEs to just take up blockers and stop the run, why draft Bailey?
