I like Henne. I was wrong about him.

He seems to have gained pocket presence since last year and isn't doing what analysts thought which was "snap... look straight for Marshall and throw it".

With that Running Game and what is looking like a strong D, Miami are going even better than my prediction of being joint top of the AFC Beast division with the Patriots

I must say, however good Moss' TD catch was last night, I think I prefer Hesters.

49ers off to a good start. :clown:

Well if Favre had of scored 10 points and not minus 2 I'd have won....

Legend. I didn't have time to watch the game but I zapped the programme just to watch the build up ...

I have to disagree, the Moss catch was pretty amazing ... simply effortless, sheer quality in the throw but Moss had to be there to take it ... one handed and all ..

ardeo 21-09-2010 11:12 AM

Moss' was better, running at full pace, reaching out with one hand to catch it over his shoulder, unbelievable really.

To be fair, that same Browns side raped the Chiefs defense last year.

Their D looks much stronger this year under Romeo.

Denver Broncos coach Josh McDaniels led the tributes to Kenny McKinley today after the 23-year-old wide receiver was found dead at a house in Colorado.

Although investigations are ongoing, authorities have suggested McKinley may have taken his own life.

It's a big jump for the Chiefs though, and they haven't done anything passing wise this season.

I just don't think you can downgrade or upgrade teams a massive amount after two games of the season. So apparently Cowboys are a worse team than both the Chiefs and the Bucs? Ridiculous.

Did you watch the Cowboys game?

They are awful.

I don't think you can rate teams simply on what they can do on paper.

Oh, and the Chiefs' D looks great under Romeo Crennel. Again, watch some highlights or read some reports before you go criticising teams because they don't look strong on paper.

I like your honesty :) Even though we are 0 and 2 I'm not overly concerned. I just don't but into all the hype about getting to the SB, the first team to potentially do so at their own stadium. Last team to reach a SB after starting 0 and 2 was us ... Don't get me wrong, two disapointing losses but the NFC East hasn't exactly been tearing up trees so far this season ... Tough match up next weekend but one that we may well relish and more than likely get a result out of ...

Clausen will be starting QB this weekend for the Panthers.

Neil 21-09-2010 01:00 PM

Hooray, we're not bottom :)

Mind you, if we couldn't beat St Louis, we'd deserve to be.

Yea I did, and they are not awful, they are second in passing yards this season, and 4th on total yards, despite the fact that O-line is all banged up. Once they have that o-line back they will start putting up the points and winning the games.

The Chiefs D has looked great so far, in a thunderstorm with crowd noise so Rivers couldn't communicate and at the Browns. I still think it's a good D, my point was they have done nothing in the air, and in fact very little offensively. They have scored just two offensive TDs in 2 games.

We are only two games in, there have already been some turnarounds from teams, e.g. Jets, i'm just not willing to give any teams a massive bump after 2 games, unless they really really deserve it
