Default Who was the most pleasant surprise tonight?

Okam showed us the player he should be.

Orlovsky showed a great deal of poise in the pocket.

Chris Brown showed us the road grader we need.

Chris Brown and Okam without a doubt. Those two guys showed up to play tonight.

I expected it, but I was also very pleased with Barwin and Casey. Those two guys look like they are legit.

From what I heard, I'd say Chris Brown, Frank Okam and Darnell Jenkins...

I liked Okam, Pittman, Busing & Brown tonight. Busing played really well on special teams. Pittman looked like the best CB with the 2nd-3rd teamers to me. I didn't like Richardson. It looked like KC was picking on him way too much.

Aside from all the guys mentioned above Brice McCain had a good game. I don't recall him allowing a catch.

Ditto on the list, though I'd put Barwin higher.

I remember one weekend a couple of years ago when Chris Brown was the NFL rushing leader. Then he got injured. The rest is history.

I would put Barwin 1st personally and would add the fact that Jacoby didn't screw up and actually had some good catches. Have to agree with the rest.

Barwin didn't surprise me at all. He went mostly against #2's tonight, and I expect him to be one of the Texans leading sack leaders this year. Casey didn't surprise me either, since I knew he had great hands.

A guy not yet listed that I thought played well is Kasey Studdard. Played into the 3rd quarter and hustled on the Brown fumble. Looks to be an improved player.

A guy I'd just as soon cut now is Brandon Harrison. He looks lost on the field. Start searching the free agent lists for safeties, Rick Smith.

I think only one of you mentioned him, but I also have to add McCain to my list. He played very very well. He stayed with his man, put on a big hit with Demeco to cause an incompletion, and looked very confident. Very impressed with him.

Agree on both points. Harrison looked awful.

Harrison's replacement is Busing and or Nolan. I doubt we find another gem like we did last year with Eugene but who knows. I actually feel decent about the safety position because I like the top three guys.

I wouldn't be surprised if some quarterbacks were brought in for a tryout. Kubiak seemed PO'd at Grossman, he could be on the outs.

Barwin got his sack vs Branden Alberts. The Chiefs starting LT.

Pulled hamstring as reported by Bob Allen.

EDIT: For content

The entire DL stuffed the Chiefs up and down the field. The LB's caused fumbles, all in all the defense was very pleasant.

The offense was pretty good. The running game was good, the 2nd string passing game (Because face it, 2 series of the 1st stringers is not enough data) was meh. Dan was good/bad Rex had 3 snaps before being pulled. Overall, I think our depth is better than in years past. That or our 2's can style all over what appears to be an uncoordinated team.

Rex? Pulled hammy?

Hope it doesn't interfere with his trip home for the season.

BTW, Jeff George is available on the cheap if we need a head case big armed QB.

another guy not mentioned who I thought played really well was Bentley. I know he is not a rookie or even trying to make the team but he was flying all over the field and making play after play.
