Eric Bienemy is exactly who the Atlanta Falcons need
The Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy went to the Chicago Bears to become their head coach, and Andy Reid decided to promote within and Eric Bieniemy became the offensive coordinator for the Chiefs…and what 2018 that team had.
Patrick Mahomes took the entire league by storm with 50 passing touchdowns and over 5,000 yards passing in his first year as a starter. They were 1st in total yards, 1st in points, it was an offensive clinic. After 2018, last season, Bieniemy had multiple interviews but he did not get a head coaching gig, thus he’s back in Kansas City and they picked up right where they left off.
Four weeks into the season, the Chiefs are 4-0, are #1 in points and #2 in yards. Patrick Mahomes is back in the MVP race with 10 touchdowns and no interceptions, and this is without star wide receiver Tyreek Hill, and there has been no Kareem Hunt neither, as he is a Cleveland Brown and is suspended. I could write an article alone on how many new names these last few years Patrick Mahomes has thrown the ball to.
And I don’t chalk that up as the Chiefs having 15 great playmakers at wide receiver, that’s Patrick Mahomes, and coaching as a whole. But the question is; how much of this coaching is Eric Bieniemy?
