It’s Time to Declare the Marcus Peters Experiment a Failure

 

 

 

Marcus Peters is from Oakland, California. He came into the league in 2015 as a surprise first-round pick by the Kansas City Chiefs. I say surprise because he was suspended in 2014 by the Washington Huskies for a sideline temper tantrum–doesn’t that sound familiar–and then later dismissed from the football program for disciplinary issues.

 

Prior to picking him with the 18th overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft, then general manager John Dorsey said he didn’t believe the pick was “risky” at all.

 

“No. Once you meet the kid, once you see where he’s from. We go through a research process in terms of trying to find that out about players. If the truth be told, the kid came here. We met him at the combine. He sat with all the position coaches at the combine. I had the chance to have a side bar with him at the combine. We brought him here to the building for a day. And then, just this past week, Monday and Tuesday I believe it was, we sent Chris Ballard out to Oakland. He had a chance to sit down with the kid, his parents. We did very extensive research in regards to this person and we talked to his coaches, his former coaches. Listen, you know what the kid is: competitive. He’s a very competitive kid. He’s not a malicious kid whatsoever.”

 

For the most part, I think most will agree with Dorsey’s initial assessment here. He’s not malicious, but he plays with more emotion than he sometimes knows how to handle. His mouth gets him in trouble with officials, and while he can sometimes be a magician with his ability to jump routes and pick off the pass — he has 18 since he entered the league, which leads all defensive backs in that statistic for that time period — he is not a “lock down” cornerback by any stretch of the imagination.

 

If you watch how Peters plays, he seems incapable of playing press coverage, oftentimes lining up 15-yards off of the receiver he is defending. This can cause him to get beat by inside routes more times than not. In addition to that, Peters is a terrible tackler. He doesn’t wrap up when he makes a hit, rather he just extends his arms, trying to push the offensive player to the ground. When he’s not doing that, he’s purely trying to go after the ball, in an attempt to rip it from the receivers hands. This ploy has only worked one time in the two full seasons Peters has been on the team.

 

However, these flaws can all be coached away. Coaches can teach players how to wrap up on a tackle instead of pushing the player to the ground. Coaches can teach how to play press coverage, and how to not allow a catch on the slant or short routes. What coaches can’t teach is attitude. They can’t teach respect.

 

Take this latest issue with Peters for example. After hitting Raiders’ quarterback Derek Carr — which was a good thing, and should not have been penalized — Peters third-cousin, twice removed, Marshawn Lynch ran onto the field, presumably to protect Peters from getting beat up by the Raiders’ offensive line. Once Lynch was ejected from the game, and the Chiefs ultimately dropped one to their division rivals — because of the secondary which is supposed to be led by Peters, I might add — Peters reportedly rode the Oakland public transit system with Lynch after the game. This included a rousing chant of “F#(k the Chiefs” by the passengers on the train, led by Lynch, with Peters right there.

 

Then, on the Sunday Fox NFL Pre-Game Show, Jay Glazer reported Peters would be testifying on Lynch’s behalf during his appeal hearing on Monday. A joke was even made asking what the Chiefs’ coaches thought about their corner back helping keep a division rival’s starting running back on the field.

 

It is clear to most people that Peters desires to be in the Silver and Black of the Oakland — soon-to-be Las Vegas — Raiders. And I say let him go. Yes, the Chiefs would have to play him twice a year, but they also have the blueprint on how to beat him. Throw slants to the receivers on his side of the field, and they’ll be wide open. All game.

 

I’m done defending this guy. Until he starts playing football commensurate with his draft position and pedigree and stops acting like the Oakland Raider it seems he so desperately wants to be, I am firmly in the position that the Chiefs should look to draft or sign his replacement in the offseason.

 

I’m curious to hear what you guys think. Should the Chiefs hang on to Peters or should they let him leave and head to the other, darker, dingier, more crime-ridden city by the bay? Sound off in the comments section below. Thanks for reading and GO CHIEFS!

    I’m not beyond calling Peters’ performance this season a “sophomore slump” but he still needs to get out of it. His play overall has been abysmal at best. It’s pretty safe to say that the league has figured him out and while the great players out there learn, adapt, and improve Peters has done the exact opposite- he has regressed in every single facet of his game.

    As far as his attitude, he acts like a spoiled, belligerent, teenager and that’s why I believe he will never become the leader that some of the players say he is and some fans want him to be. Peters makes me think of Kelce’s inability to control himself but to an Nth degree. However, where Kelce continually admits that he must improve and work in that regard Peters shows absolutely zero want to do so.

    • Delaware Chief

      I wouldn’t call the experiment a failure because he did give the Chiefs two good years, but this year has been extremely disappointing and the reasons stated in the article are exactly why. Whenever a tackle is missed in the secondary or a poor effort to tackle is made,I always think it is Marcus Peters. One of the things I love about the Chiefs usually is a tough defense, but so far this year that has not really happened. I know people don’t like Bob Sutton,but he is the same coach as before, but some of the players have regressed and it needs to be turned around soon. Now that the offense is for the most part doing a good job, if the defense can start pressuring the quarterback and getting turnovers like other years, we may have something this year. If not they will either fall short of the playoffs or be an early exit again. I will contradict myself on the coaching aspect though. Look at the turnaround the Patriots defense has had the last two weeks, that is why they are perennial Super Bowl contenders, they really coach them up. The Chiefs need to really be studying why they have been struggling so much lately and come up with a solution during this mini bye week

      • Laurels and limitations

        New England actually has a viable excuse for their slow start defensively, they instituted a brand new scheme along with a multitude of new players to install in that scheme. I usually like what Sutton brings for the most part but at some point players have to take responsibility for some of the things you mentioned…missed tackles, not playing aggressively, and whatnot. I just really believe that KC is missing Berry and Nelson as the tone-setters.

        • Delaware Chief

          Yes,I agree, the players do need to be more aggressive and wrap up better when tackling. Berry it turns out is irreplaceable and hopefully when Nelson returns the pass defense will improve. Perhaps Tamba coming back will help as well, because they are not getting to the quarterback. One play on either side of the ball the other night and the Chiefs would be 6-1

          • Laurels and limitations

    Wow Jason, your article should be titled “Jason hits the panic button”. Two pro bowls in two years with this year being a down year and you are ready to dump Peters. I am glad you are not the GM of the Chiefs. He does have flaws in his game. His speed is average, so I doubt he will be effective in press coverage. Yes, his tackling is poor and I hope he works on that. Your other points, riding the subway with his relative Lynch and testifying at his hearing are all nonsense. I don’t really care about those things. What I do care about is his attitude and play on the field. I do wonder if Berry not being around to keep a lid on Peters is having an effect. Where are you getting the idea that Peters is the leader of the secondary? I think it’s Ron Parker.

    • berttheclock

      Extremely well said. Plus, at times, he appears to be ever so “uppity” and does “not know his place”, eh?

    • Jason Seibel

      If what you care about are his attitude on the field and his play, you should be very concerned. They both suck. Denying that is full out denial.

  • Chiefly Bacon

    Eh. I disagree. Blame falls more so on Bob Sutton. Peters can actually press pretty well, but Sutton won’t let him do it. In much the same way as Sutton won’t let Houston rush the passer. Ol’ Bob is so afraid of giving up a deep play that he’s happy to line Peters up way off the ball. Really, I think the main reason Sutton does that though is that Chiefs defense couldn’t stop a band of toddlers from driving the length of the field and their only hope of getting off the field early is an interception. Letting Peters play off coverage allows him to freelance a little bit more, but if the only reason we have Peters is to get interceptions, we might as well move him FS. Peters has had a down year, for his standards, he’s also still been the best CB on the Chiefs roster. I’ve criticized Peters quite a bit this year, but I don’t want to lose our best CB, especially not to Oakland. They can have him when his 5th year option is up.

    • tm1946

      If I might, Peters as a FS, he tackles like a butterfly. Whatever meanness/toughness he has usually surfaces as petty outbursts. And he is our best CB but that is because we may not have another player on the roster who is a CB by talent, desire, or nature…. LOL. Other than that you have made your point.

    • Jason Seibel

      And by Sutton “not wanting to give up the deep play” how many deep plays has he given up this year? And by “he” I mean Peters. I’m not going to do the math, but spoiler alert, it’s a lot. He’s a lazy corner back who only wants the glory of the INT. He’s not interested in actually locking anyone down.

    • this is an over-reaction. The opposition doesn’t throw at Peters. Nor Richard S. at Seattle. etc. Seth Keyser did a nice article on 4 myths about the defense, one of them bering sutton was to blame, another that Houston was in pass coverage 25 or 50% of the time. Not true. It was 6 plays I think. Overall? I think most of us are over-reacting. It appears to me that the players not getting the play by play task done is to blame. I think Keyser’s article is worthy of the read by far.

  • tm1946

    Start out – I do not care for Peters. He seems to have more problems than need to be accepted by a football team, a lot of side issues go into that. The the last time I checked the Chiefs were supposed to be about football not the ills of the world or what is inside minds.

    Now, Peters – he is not very good. He is the best we got but been there, done that. Can he play, yes…. does that carry a lot of baggage with it, YES. Is he worth keeping, ok by me but not at the big pay day CBs make on their second contract. Will he play for raiders, care less, he is beatable (and yes he can intercept passes on us).

    How much is it Sutton, Reid, Veach, or Peters fault… no idea, just another failed experiment. Chiefs get credit for trying, Peters gets credit for trying…. can we move on?

  • freshmeat62

    Peters came on like gangbusters w/ his playing off and then able to attack and make interceptions. That was great for a couple years. At the beginning of this season they still weren’t throwing his way much, but now it looks like the league is catching on to him, and are now more willing to make plays his way, and they are succeeding. And when the ball carrier runs into his area, the Chiefs basically have only 10 men on the field, because he’s not doing anything. As a sidenote, he should really try to stick his shoulder in there and make a tackle. I can speak from experience that there is no better feeling on the football field than to be going full speed, and/or the runner coming your way full speed, and then you put a shoulder into his gut. He should try it…he’ll like it! Just don’t do it to a QB that is already all tied up and not going anywhere. As soon as I saw that play I thought, ah crap, there goes 15 yards and a 1st down. You can’t hit a QB like that no matter the situation. Especially an NFL fave like Carr. Stupid!

    He’s probably going to want top pay when his contract runs out after next year. I say let him get it somewhere else, and take the 3rd rd comp pick he’ll probably bring. And to Mahomes, you’ll have seen this guy play every week for 2 years so know his weaknesses as you’ll probably be facing him twice a year.

    • ladner morse

      Same in reverse works… Peters will have seen Mahomes…..

      • Laurels and limitations

        Hehe, not sure why that scares anyone…Just run Ware or Hunt out to that side on a bubble screen. Peters is not going to arm tackle either of THOSE two!

    • Laurels and limitations

      Peters hit wasn’t even dirty: whistle had not blown, Carr was no longer protected as a QB since he was on a designed QB run play, and no helmet to helmet contact was made.

  • berttheclock

    Kudos to both Merlin and Chiefly Bacon for having their respective thinking hats on squarely this AM.

    Before the last draft, whenever anyone mentioned the fact the Chiefs needed to shore up the corner position opposite Peters, there were several comments about how well Mitchell appeared to handle the spot near the end of last year. Very small sample of his work, but, they said he had nailed the job. That has been shown in the first seven games to be very wrong and he, usually, is a detriment to the team.

    Did anyone even read and or listen to comments from the Raiders’ staff saying they were going to put Amari Cooper on the side of Mitchell as much as possible and stay away from having to confront Peters? This was repeated even by Romo during the early part of the game as Cooper torched Mitchell.

    So, dump Peters and retain Mitchell, eh? Then the coming “Savior” of the Chiefs, young Mahomes II can lead the Chiefs to title after title trying to pass twice a year against Peters???????????????

    Mr Peters, I wish you well, Sir, because, you do have the courage of your convictions and I hope you can find a team out there with some Defensive Co-ord who does know how to coach and plan strategies for opposing OCs. Sutton has reverted to his days under Rex Ryan and looks far more as the failure of a HC trying to lead Army against Navy. Sutton is nothing more than a former LB coach who failed upwards.

    • tm1946

      Interesting but what do the Chiefs do to fix this, another 5 years of reloading (team hate to say/hear “rebuild”)? We had a shot at the golden ring this year before raiders got going and while broncos on decline and the defense may have shot that hope to pieces – already. But that is football. And hating on Mahomes is fine but redundant…of no use. How about our OL is pretty much set for years under contracts and, IMO, average at best? Lots of issues, only speculation for we peons.

      • berttheclock

        “redundant”? The drafting of Mahomes II set the Chiefs back. Not only due to huge amount of money they had pay for a 10th pick slot, but, Dorsey did not address the real problems of the Chiefs in lacking defensive back quality, did not address adding punch to the defensive front, did not address the need to upgrade the LB corps, plus, gave away both the 91st pick, and the 1st next year. The scary part of this for me is the fact it was Veach who brought Mahomes II to the attention of Dorsey to the point, Dorsey went to the Iowa State game to personally scout Mahomes II when Texas Tech played in Ames.

        As noted by an astute visitor to this site is the fact each and every loss from no on will only help Buffalo to a far better pick. BTW, at that 27 spot, they added a very good young DB in Tra’Davious White from LSU. Already, he has had one pick and I have not checked out the box score of yesterdays’ Bills game.

        • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

          Redundant…..as in beating a dead horse.
          Mahomes, regardless of what he cost is on the roster……..no amount of buyers remorse changes anything.

          • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

            No doubt Alex is playing better than anybody ever expected, but in 2017 he is throwing to Hill and an improved Kelce….not Avery and McGrath…….then throw in Conley, DAT, Wilson and now Robinson……the man has targets for a change.

            Yeah, Smith has targets but it’s more than that. Fastest WR in the league, Hunt running the ball, Kelce one of the best TEs, is all a big help..but Smith has to afford them the opportunity first. That has changed this year.

          • Chiefs-Kings-A’s

            True…..Eli Manning is a perfect example of a Superbowl caliber QB when he has talent surrounding him and not so much when the talent just isn’t there.

  • berttheclock

    Did anyone watch the Seahawks against the Giants? Now, the current Giants are not that good, but, for about 3 and one half quarters, their defense held the Seahawks in check. However, it became a game where the Seahawks’ defense was the one who held off the Giants until their offense could jump start their game. The Seahawks are vicious in the 2nd half of games and absolutely own the 4th quarter of any game they play. They get stronger and stronger playing their patented Cover One and Cover Three and they all know how to help each other out to cover any weaknesses of any of their players. One reason for this success is Earl Thomas who demonstrates why the loss of Eric Berry has crippled the Chiefs.

    But, the point is strong defenses can prevail even in an era of the NFL of more gun slinging by QBs.

  • berttheclock

    Interesting point about defensive backs being poor at tackling. I noted after the draft that poor tackling was a major problem of McQuay. But, did anyone read about the young safety of the Bears, Eddie Jackson, running two defensive plays back for 75 yards each? One was a pick and the other was a fumble

    Now, who is Jackson? He played corner, but, switched to safety for Alabama. He was noted by scouts as having great athletic ability and speed, but, was thought to have a light frame. PFFs’ scouting report noted those as well, but, added the fact they thought he was poor at tackling, took poor angles and appeared to wait for help. Those comments dropped him into the top portion of the 4th round of the last draft.

    John Fox saw something in him and it has paid off.

  • drwillez37

    Whats going on with Tamba has he been with the team?? Is he going to games and traveling with them,? I ask because I haven’t seen him once this season. Is his problems really health or does this team black ball people? Remember when DAT disapeared without a trace. For someone that was so mad about playing time and what not, why do that if your unfit for duty??or is there other KC problems going on? ? Remember Peyton wouldn’t even take a phone call from the Chiefs!! Wonder if Reid being here would’ve changed that.

    • ladner morse

      I think that Peyton not taking a call from the Chiefs has to do with his desire to have full control of the offense while on the field and he knows — because he’s been around the league — that Andy doesn’t give up full control… or any kind of control… of his offense.

    A little assumption on my part, but Peters will not sign on Kansas City’s dotted line after next season.
    The mid west does not fit the mans personality……the Raiders will come calling and he will be waiting.
    We will be facing him two times a year in the future regardless of whether we trade him or he plays out his deal.

    • Laurels and limitations

      Right, Peters won’t have a choice until 2019 unless Veach trades him off, 5th year option and all. Of course, by then KC has an estimated 81.7 MILLION in cap space so they can afford to pay him assuming that he turns his game around and Veach wants to commit that much monies to the defense in 3 players. The 4th is just added in for good measure.

      Gaines has been the Alex Smith of the defense this season. Not elite, nor terrible, but mostly underappreciated. Meanwhile, Alex Smith has been the Marcus Peters of the offense, consistently dominant and will burn you eventually. Meanwhile, Marcus Peters has been the Justin Houston of the defense. Really good, but not as good as you’ve come to expect, so you start to think he’s bad because you have high standards for him. Justin Houston, well, he’s pretty much been the same.

          • Laurels and limitations

            That listing is the RB depth though. It just is. I agree though, If Hunt #1 gets hurt Kc is in trouble enough, but if West get hurts KC is even more trouble. Lordy forbid that we ever see DAT in the backfield running up the gut ever again.

By the by, in case, you think one is riding a white horse to save the season….. most have not been in a game and will take a bit to get up to game speed, IF they are close to 100% healed, which I doubt.

    4. Everyone loves donuts.

    great tackle by Jalen Watkins, maybe we can hire him to tutor a certain local CB on open field tackling this next offseason, lol.

    and our very own Ladner gives his very valid 2 cents, lol.

    … the Chiefs have dropped Houston into coverage TOO MANY times and rushed 3 TOO MANY times. https://t.co/LgTWwcbrpN— Ladner Morse (@Laddiemorse) October 24, 2017

    Wentz just made one helluva throw..plenty of air underneath it to allow his shiny new rookie to adjust to the ball. 64 yards folks.

    Even Gruden is hollerin’ about the refs now. Aaaaaaaannnnd, Wentz is on fire when he finds his stance.

      If they go on to beat Washington tonight, they will own the NFLs best record at 6-1

  • KCMikeG

    He has more attitude for the refs than he does for our opponents. Ditto – Negatives > positives – Done. Let’s get some picks for him though.
