    Was that Jeremiah Johnson scoring for Denver? The guy who was with the Texans and couldn't stay healthy?

    Was he the other UDFA running back we had stashed on the practice squad from the same year as Foster?

    IIRC a lot of people were very excited about him as well as Arian at the time.

    Yep, that's the guy. He had a separated shoulder that he'd played his senior year with.

    I thought he would be a great player. Good for him.

    yeah, me too. I was thinking it would be him to emerge instead of Foster.

    I was expecting them to be a 1-2-3 punch along with Tate. I didn't foresee us getting Ward.

    The AFC West was really bad last year.

    Not that I expect the Chiefs to win the AFC West again this year, but it is only preseason. The long off-season could make a lot of teams look a bit rusty this week.

    JJ another UDFA last year ? Just makes one wonder again why Kubiak/Smith wasted a very valuable 2nd round pick on a back since they are a "dime a dozen" every year ?

    Smoke and mirrors. That's what amazes me about our team. We've never been able to better 9-7 and over the course of the past 3-4 yeas we've been better than teams that have been in the playoffs. We've been pretty unlucky.

    Johnson was in the same draft as Foster. I wouldn't say they wasted a 2nd round pick on Tate yet. You have to also take into consideration where the Texans were at in the running game when they made the selection of Tate. They were coming off of a piss-poor rushing season in 2009 where they were ranked 31st overall in rushing. They were going into last year with an UDFA RB as the starter. I don't think anyone was predicting Foster to lead the NFL in rushing last year.

    The Chiefs last year reminded me of the Bengals in 09. It was an absolute miracle the Bengals made the playoffs that year, and they weren't really that talented and it showed in 10. I remember us marching up and down the field against that acclaimed defense that same year in their house.

    However, if KC can learn that ******** Thomas Jones should not be in this league anymore much less being their "starter" and start giving Jamaal Charles 80-90% of the touches, they will be much better off.

    Yeah... but... it was a rookie QB making his first start against us. That's almost not fair. We almost always find a way to let those guys win.
