    The way it's written makes them seem that much better. I could easily substitute Chiefs players with Texans players on that list and it would work well enough (other than the safeties party).

    We will see.

    The D only got better. We got rid of some dead weight and the middle is solid as a rock. LB are the best in the league. Look at the depth Chart. With the loss of JA Taylor is going to have to pick it up a notch and has had an outstanding preseason. The D could be responsible for 3 to 10 points if this happens you might as well move on to the next game

    This though is more of a team of Marty ball. Not bragging about our Offense. Herm is very concervative and Solori our OC is an *****. For what ever reason Huard and the Offense jelled last year. The poor outing in the preseason is nothing to worry about as he had the exact same preseaon last year.

    Chiefs 13 - 10 Texans.

    Yes we did. I will be the first to eat some BBQ CROW if you all do win. On the other hand I have been told we serve some very nice BBQ CROW KC style. I might have to ask for a catering service if we do win. There seems to be a lot of you all. LOL

    If you have someone that can run the ball and chew clock, it helps your defense because they aren't on the field as long.

    It would be nice if the Texans could put up some early points.

    If that happen the Chiefs are in trouble, if we get the coin toss and keep your offense off the field you all may be in trouble. Either way it is going to be a good game I am sure of it.

    We have a great punter, and who know who we will have before the week is out for a kicker. Time will tell but if I am the Chiefs I kick it out of bounds on Punts, and squib it or onside the kick offs. Can't be any worse?

    That would be the smart move. Jones has some serious speed... and Mathis is no slouch either. Both are great returners.

    That is what I hear. If they are not touching the ball it can only be a plus for the Chiefs

    I seriously think the key for the Texans will be scoring early and minimizing Larry Johnson's input. If KC is forced to throw too much their glaring weakness will lose the game for them. Their offense both scheme wise and personnel wise is limited by a less than adequate O-line. My main question is will their O-line be able to make the holes for LJ to exploit? I think if we are to be successful on offense we will need Ron Dayne to soften up the defense in the early going.

    Well the OL just got a shot in the arm. MacIntosh will start. He practiced today and was very impressive coach Herm pronouced him the starter at LT. He is especially good at run blocking. Passing game might surprise you. There are players you have not even seen yet. The D is very impressive. We can score and if that happens on D it will be a long day for the Texans. I agree with you about the TX's scoring early though. It would be a huge advantage.

    Put the link to your normal board and I'll be sure to come by and take a few bites of crow.

    Fair's far.

    This game's going to be a tough one, no doubt. KC has a very strong defense and a very good running game. If we can limit the turnovers and get a consistent pass rush on Huard it's game, set, match. LJ's going to do his thing, no doubt about it, but even he can't win this game by himself. Home field advantage, Matt Schaub at QB, defense swarming to the ball.....

    LJ will bust a big one and set up a TD and that rookie kicker they have will go 1-2 and as far as the Texans go I see 2 to's on D that results in 10 points and Matt to AJ for one TD and Green for another add one more Brown FG late to make it a three score game.
