The Chiefs are, how do you say in English, not very good. They may be able to put up some points and even give you some fantasy options, but their defense is going to keep them in the realm of the rotten. Dwayne Bowe says that they’ll go after Nnamdi Asomugha in an attempt to recreate Delhomme and Cutler’s performances from last weekend. It’s kind of an avant garde piece, that I’m guessing will go right over Chiefs’ fans heads, but it will be one for the ages and the tape of the game will go straight to the Guggenheim.
LaDainian Tomlinson: He didn’t practice and is wearing a boot. I wear boots all the time, but I guess wearing just one means you might be a little unstable. Or is it one of those boots they put on cars? Now that would really slow you down. Whatever it is, it’s not good for LT and his owners. I have him in a league and he’s already on my bench going against the Ravens.
Terrell Owens: He thinks Trent Edwards didn’t look down field often enough against the Patriots in week one. I tend to agree with him. Ouch, my skin hurts. Look for Edwards to try to keep TO placated, which actually should help them as a team. You can’t spell T-E-A-M with T-O, but you can spell torture, torment and torpedo.
Antonio Bryant: He’s looking questionable for this week. His knee is all gross and swelled from having been cut into by maniacal surgeons. This is more than a bit disconcerting. I would hold for now, but if he isn’t back at full health in week 3 I’m starting to worry, a lot!
Anthony Gonzalez: He says he’ll be back in week 7. The problem isn’t with his MCL, but with his PCL which I hear from people that have at least a clue is harder to heal. If you are really hurting for bench space I could see dropping him. I’m holding on for dear life since I have him on 10 out of 9 teams. I picked him up in a non-team as well.
Hank Baskett: He’s taking AGonzo’s spot on the Colts, but unless he really wows them I see Garcon and Collie playing in front of him. But he did convince a Playboy Playmate to marry him, who knows what his power of persuasion is. Maybe Coach Manning will fall for him too.
Jerome Harrison: One of my preseason favorites who got hurt and had to watch James Davis smash all his toys is now the healthiest RB for the Browns. I still think it will come down to Davis and Harrison getting the bulk of the work, but I am very interested in how Harrison plays in Denver this week.
Knowshon Moreno: Coach McDaniels says he wants to see the trio of Marshall, Royal and Moreno get the ball more this week. No duh, as my 12 year old self would say, and say, and say. Moreno is right on the edge of fantasy flex starter this week. He didn’t show much last week, but this is the Browns in Mile High. A lot depends on your options, but I might roll the dice.
Brandon Marshall: Marshall broke his media silence yesterday. Now this guy has lost what tiny sliver of brain he must have had at one time (you know, the parts that kept him breathing and eating). He looked like, and was, an idiot yesterday while talking to the media. Will this impact his on field performance? I don’t think so, but I’d rather him shut his hole.
Steve Smith: Smith to Delhomme: “I never really liked you as a quarterback. But as a person . . . I love you as a person.”
