In an interview with Ed Graney of the Las Vegas Review Journal, Mark Davis said, “Obviously, the Chiefs are the team we haven’t been able to beat in the division lately. It’s one of the reasons we drafted edge rushers in (Clelin Ferrell and Maxx Crosby) last year. We need more of them. We need another guy up the middle against Mahomes. We need linebackers to hold the edge. We need guys who can cover (Chiefs tight end) Travis Kelce and all their speed outside. Patrick Mahomes is unlike anyone else — he’s the monster now — and we need to improve all our phases of defense to deal with him. They’re just tough. Their offense is incredible. I believe (Gruden and Mayock) will build a defense to get the job done. The second total disintegration of our team under me came when we brought back (Gruden) as a coach in 2018. We changed a lot of things with our roster. But now, I believe we’re close to making this thing sustainable and competing for the division and playoff runs. No question, our goal and next step is to win the division and get a home playoff game which is critical. Right now, that means beating Kansas City. I believe we’re close. I really do.”
