Bob Sutton is Jerry Sandusky and Andy Reid is Joe Paterno. When you know your assistant coach continues to do bad things, but you keep him on anyway cause he is your friend. OK, comparing the Chiefs to the Molest U. situation is insensitive and wrong. Andy has been lazy in hiring the assistant coaches. When someone leaves to move up, he just looks around the room and promotes somebody. Bob Sutton epitomizes the “Peter Principle”, but in his case it is the dic_head principle.
