'nuff said. Who's really worried about LT2? Chiefs will cram it down his throat and Priest & Larry will run wild. Seriously, if Drew Brees is the leading rusher on the Chargers team last week...what does that say?

If you're not worried about Tomlinson, you're not paying attention.

Trent outrushed Priest a couple of weeks ago. Think San Diego is overlooking him?

I watched the whole game last week, and I didn't see Tomlinson do too much. The Eagles didn't shut down Priest that well, and I think they should be the measuring stick. Perhaps if the Chiefs shut down Ricky Williams and Tomlinson in back to back games, people will realize how good the new "D" really is.

I saw Tomlinson do plenty. I didn't see the big guys up front do much.

I'm really glad you're not on the Chiefs defensive staff.

Wow. I just saw the mention of Ricky Williams and omission of Brown. Nice job.

Exaclty. Besides, if your going to make fun of the rushing yards, comparing a QB vs a RB, pick on the Ricky Williams/Gus Frerotte combo. Frerotte has more yard on the gound in one attempt in 2 weeks (1 carry against the Giants for 9 yards) than Williams has in two weeks (11 carries, 7 yards) combined.

We did a pretty good job of stuffing Ronnie Brown except for the breakdown of one play. Even then, Miami's O-Line is one of the worst in the NFL, so I wouldn't be pounding our chest over that.

However, our Rush defense has been fairly consistent all season. We are in the top 10 statistically. We haven't given up too many long runs, either.

One missed tackle on Brown is nothing to cry over. Not any more than crying when we get called for tackles in the back on Hall's returns.
