Now, unless Al Saunders has a brain tumor, we "should" be running the ball, and often, down Buffalos throat on Sunday.

Yep, Dante Hall and Eddie Kennison will have 100 yards each off the reverse ROFL

Sorry, couldn't resist...

I wonder if Buffalo was watching the game of the week on NFL Network last night.After the Chiefs win they showed Vermeil's post game speech to the team and he said something like,"offense,we as coaches finally got smart enough to figure out what the hell you can really do,and that's run down their frickin throats,and you're going to see plenty more of it,I promise."

God bless Dick. He has his moments. I just hope Al was listening too!

They will stack 8 men in the box and force KC to pass to open it up a bit and with the situation at tackle that might be a difficult proposition especially on the road. Their pass defense is pretty good.

All in all it's not gonna be as easy as it looks on paper. From what I've seen they've given up a lot of yards from being overly aggressive kind've like KC last year...their front 4 get in the backfield but miss tackles etc.

Knowing AS, we'll try to throw it the first 2 plays of a series, then run it on 3 and 8.

I wish I would have seen that.

Playing on the road in a hostile enviroment like Buffalo, we could see
LJ rush 20-25 times or more. If thats the case look for Kennison to have some nice downfield receptions on big plays off the play action.

Given the number put up against them, you'd think they would have tried that before week 11, no? I'm guessing they have. Looks like it failed. Miserably.

Because most of those teams have been able to pass on them against an 8 man front. I wouldn't consider that a given with KCs situation at offensive tackle at this time....If nothing else I'd expect them to make KC prove it.

It does seem that Squanders likes to attack a D's strong points.
