    Just like your defense will be any good with that pathetic defensive line of Denver's. : )

    It's a good thing Jay Cutler was a proven winner in college. Oh wait, nevermind.

      Maybe you should put it this way instead. I wouldn't look at his entire seasons stats. I would look at what he did in those 9 games and spread them out over an entire season:

      In his 9 starts he averaged:

      150.1 yards per game
      29 carries per game
      5.18 yards per carry

      Spread that out over an entire season and that equals:
      2401.6 yards
      464 carries

      Yes that is a heavy workload but Larry Johnson has not been pounded alot in his career as he did not play alot in college until his senior season and he did not play much in KC until 2005. I doubt he reaches 2400 yards but 2000 seems easily attainable for him.

      I wouldn't factor in the loss of our tackles too much. First of all, John Welbourn was never supposed to start at right tackle last year. Kevin Sampson was supposed to be the starter but he got injured in preseason and had an asthma attack in the bye week. Those two events effectively ended his season. Also, the loss of Roaf really doesn't affect Larry Johnson too much. Larry Johnson't production was about the same with or without Roaf in the game last year. Kyle Turley did very well in Houston on Saturday and will help out alot more than Jordan Black did last year. Our tackle situation is not near as bad as everybody thinks.
      So what you're saying is that the first seven games don't count? That would be ignorant to say the least. Reality check for you Kmart, you make all the hypothetical projects you want unless he actually played those seven games you have no idea what he would have done.

      Well Raiderjoe, whoops I mean Kmart if you really think your tackle situation is not a concern then I was right when I said you don't much about your team.

          I have him on Fantasy Football so I hope he does well except against Denver

            Damn, some of you Donkey fans are idiots. I don't know much about my team because I don't think our tackle situation is a concern? No, you don't know much about the Chiefs because if you did you would know our tackle are just fine. Kyle Turley is going to do great in pass protection but will suffer somewhat in run blocking. We can live with that. Kevin Sampson is going to be a good right tackle and would have been the starter last year if he had not been injured.

            No, the first seven games don't count because Larry Johnson didn't start those games. Considering he will be starting all 16 games this season barring injury, what matters is the 9 games he started in.

              The whole team didn't do too well that game. Again, he didn't start that game so that shouldn't be a good indicator of how he would do this season.

                Kmart-
                Some quick points.

                LJ is a great back, not going to deny you that... but living in KC, it seems like everyone here assumes he's a 2k back. I know, I know... IF he had started last year... etc, etc.

                Look- he had as good of a 9-game run then I can remember in recent memory... I'm sure he'll be a top 5 back this year... but there's a reason only 5 backs have ran for 2k... there are lots of obstacles.

                Also... Even with his great run... guess who led the AFC in rushing (team)... in fact, only once in the last 4 years is KC ahead of Denver. Without Roaf, it's going to suffer.



                AFC Rank-
                Den KC
                2005 1 2

                2004 3 4

                2003 2 6

                2002 3 2
