Smith told NFL Network's Stacey Dales on Sunday there won't be too much of a difference in terms of the play-calling changes. He said Nagy usually is the one speaking to him inside his helmet during games. The move is part of the overall group of adjustments the Chiefs have made to improve on offense.
The hope is the move will jumpstart an offense stuck in the mud.
After averaging 32.8 points per game over the first five tilts, the Chiefs are scoring nearly 15 fewer points per game (18.0) in their last six matchups, falling to 6-5 on the year. K.C. has scored 10 points or less in back-to-back games for the first time since 2012 (with Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn at QB).
Will a change in playcallers make a difference? Coaches can only do so much from the sideline. It's on the players to execute or further alterations to the offense could come down the road.
