    So it's starting to look like their O-line may be closer to full strengh.

    Fully staffed, but not close to full strength in comparison to the OL they had two years ago.

    I'm really looking forward to the match-ups across the OL to see how our young guns fare, if Mario can get off to a good start it could bode diaster for a depleated KC line :mario:

    If the D can slow down LJ, even if it reguires 8 in the box; and force Huard to beat them I think we'll have a great shot at a W.

    The question is not if we can slow down their offense. Our defense is going to give up a few points early in the year, and thsi game will be no exception. I expect them to score anywhere from 10 to 21 points solely based on the fact that we are notoriously poor against pass catching TEs AND against bruisers like LJ.

    The MAIN question I have is can our offense move the ball against this defense? Lets not forget that while our D was much improved last year statistically, the Chiefs were a surprise too, surrendering something like the 11th fewest points per game. They've since then revamped their LB corp, they've revamped their secondary, and bolstered their DL. And Edwards is a good D coach.

    Looks like LJ will be held back a bit.

    That should help. Michael Bennett just doesn't make you that nervous.

    Mario is going up against a guy he recorded 1.5 sacks on or a converted DE; I like those odds.

    Don't mean to hi-jack the thread and change the subject...but we don't need TWO Cheifs threads, they don't deserve that. :texflag:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3005400

    Seems like the Cheifs themselves feel like LJ might not be ready, I am really feeling good this game. I also wonder how Dunta will be after being robbed, I hope he is pissed off and ready to hit...

    :d:

    I don't see why we should believe anything a coach says before a game. Herm (and every other head coach in the NFL) has every reason to employ every misdirection he can in everything he says before we hit the field Sunday.

    very true. they all are BS artists. why give away your hand.
    plus, isn't a "light load" for LJ around 25 carries?

    Houston, again.
    I'll take the over. I think all of Herms good intentions will go out the window as the game goes on and they are wantng to win.

    Over 23 carries and over 100 yards, although it's going to take 32 carries. No way does Edwards hold back on LJ, even the Texans are game planning like he's the premier back. When it comes to the NFL, "You play to win the game....hello!"

    I'm in the over camp....unless we jump out and take the lead and can control the clock. Otherwise, they are cramming him down our throats.

    I never bought the coachspeak that he would not see many touches the first game...he is the Chiefs best player and he will touch the ball quite a bit unless we get out to a big lead. He knows their offense and RB's don't need much camp (just ask LT). With our new offense (one that finally sports a real starting caliber NFL QB for a nice change of pace) we may be able to put some teams in the hole and control the tempo of the game.

    I will take the under for the 25 caries and 100 yards. Although I did start him on my FF team.
