I am still scratching my head a little as to why Le’ron Mcclain and Dexter Mccluster aren’t getting premier back carries. Thomas Jones has clearly hit his limit and looks far slower and less explosive than he did last year and his counterparts are a perfect thunder and lightning combo. With that said, Casey Weigman is another player who has hit his limit. While he I doesn’t make silly mistakes, he often looks overmatched and overpowered, which would lead me to believe we will be seeing more of Rodney Hudson as the season progresses. I am also shocked Jared Gaither hasn’t taken the starting right tackle spot from Barry Richardson yet.
I look for the Chiefs passing game to pick up in the coming weeks, as Cassel is a notoriously slow starter (refer to last season & his starting season with the Patriots) but picks it up in week three or four. He is even starting to notice Steve Breaston’s downfield speed opens up the middle of the field for Dwayne Bowe and Leonard Pope. Regardless, the Chiefs show life and have been competitive the last two weeks, which is all you can ask after the first two games.
