Chiefs/Cowboys (Texans/Cowboys) pregame

With the way this Chiefs team has performed this year, its apparent that the Chiefs have to rely on deactivated players from the opposing team. This week, the Cowboys number one kick returner and leader in receiving yards will sit out for todays old school game. The Cowboys offense will have some setbacks without Felix Jones and Roy Williams. They’ll have to rely highly on Marion Barber, Tashard Choice, Patrick Crayton and Jason Witten. Witten, the leader in receptions for the Cowboys and only two yards behind Williams. Crayton has also been a key asset as well for the Cowboys receiving core this year. Barber is not going to be able to take all the carries for the Cowboys. Choice has struggled a little bit this year while trying to fill in for Barber. The Chiefs have limited their key injuries heading into this game, that means its time for the Chiefs to take advantage of the injuries and woes of the Cowboys. –Keys to the game 1. LSU Ends–Glenn Dorsey and rookie Tyson Jackson, both defensive ends that played in LSU (also, Dorsey was the first Chiefs pick in the 2008 draft while Tyson was the first pick in 2009 for the Chiefs), will need to step up. They have been very quite ever since they’ve entered the NFL. Both players have a combined 13 tackles (11 Dorsey, 2 Jackson) and no sacks. Despite the Cowboys have a strong offensive line, Tony Romo cannot handle pressure. It’s been proven ever since he has came off the bench to become the number one quarterback for the Cowboys. 2. Flowers pick 6–Brandon Flowers has been quiet this season so far in his three games with one key interception early in vs the Giant last week before New York put the game away. Flowers could be a game changer if Romo cannot make the right decisions, especially with Williams out. 3. Two minute drill–As mentioned before, Romo simply cannot get the job done while under pressure. If Romo has to put together a game winning drive, then the Chiefs defense will need to hold. This game will come down to Tony Romo and whether or not he can play under pressure in one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL. The Chiefs offense should put some points on the score board. The defense will have to come through and limit the Cowboys offense in scoring.

It has only been a little over 24 hours and we have already 70 fans on The Chiefs Zone application! Thank you to everyone who have supported me through the two years.

The Chiefs obviously did not play this week, allowing more exciting stories to be covered in the NFL. How about the Denver Broncos losing their first game against a tough defense, scoring only one touchdown while giving up 30 points. Did anyone see Ted Gin Jr. from the Dolphins? It makes me want to have Dante Hall back. How about the state of New York? The Giants and Jets both started off strong, and now have lost seven games combined in the past five weeks, both teams had strong starts to the season, and are allowing other teams to surpass them in their division. It was nice to see Tennessee and St. Louis finally win a game this year. Both teams have the best running backs in this league, but have not been able to help their teams pick up a win until this week. Now it’s up to former Kansas State quarterback, Josh Freeman, to give his Buccaneers a win this season. And how about the biggest hype for week eight, Brett Favre returning to Green Bay. During the first series of the Vikings drive, fans heavily boo’d Favre. And why shouldn’t they? Favre gave general manger, Ted Thompson, many headaches when Favre could not decide what to do with his career. He brought up retirement in 2003. Here we are in 2009, still playing, after he had issues with the Packers while un-retiring the first time. The game was close for a bit as the Packers made a comeback in the second half, making up for their horrendous first half performance. However, number four’s magic came with him back in Green Bay after throwing four touchdowns as it was enough to seal a win over the Packers in his homecoming.

I want to touch on a subject that really baffled me when I first heard about this story. The NFLPA is ready to file grievance if Chiefs running back Larry Johnson isn’t the starter for the Chiefs next Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. My first question is, why does the NFLPA care one bit about Johnson’s playing status? Are they not aware he rudely put down his coach, called his fans fags, and dropping gay slurs on the media? Are they not aware that he has a history of abusing women in night clubs? Lets all forget about Johnson’s attitude. Obviously the NFLPA won’t be pleased if they see Johnson’s status does not show up as a starter. Here is something the NFLPA needs to know. They need to realize Johnson has a 2.7 yard per carry average. What legitimate reason does the NFLPA have to be upset if the Chiefs don’t activiate Johnson, nor start him? You’d imagine most teams would look for a new running back if their starter has a 2.7 yard per carry average, at least I would hope the NFLPA would be alright with that. Johnson has received many soft punishments for all of his actions as an NFL player and has gotten away with many things. But above all else, I guess the better question is, why haven’t the Chiefs cut Larry Johnson? I’d rather take a cap hit and get rid of a cancer who is holding this team back. I highly doubt Johnson will meet the success he reached in 2005 and 2006.

As for Johnson’s agent, Peter Schaffer, he’s doing nothing but defending Johnson for every move he has made in the past seven days. I fully understand Johnson pays Schaffer and that Schaffer is Johnson’s agent, but it seems Schaffer is being paid to be more of Johnson’s lawyer, than Johnson’s professional football agent.

I’m going to stick with what I predicted last week on last weeks episode of The Chiefs Zone. I feel that Johnson is done wearing the number 27 in a red jersey with the arrowhead on his helmet. We still have seven days to find out if that is the case or not. It was reported by former Chiefs Zone guest, Kent Babb, that the NFL may pile on to Johnson’s punishment once his suspension with the Chiefs is up. For right now, he is still a Kansas City Chief.
