FoxSports 7 points: Cottam has big shoes to fill.

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/9...st-start-Quinn

Point 3: Brad Cottam is determined to fill some really big shoes in Kansas City.

As the Kansas City Chiefs finalized the trade of Tony Gonzalez to the Atlanta Falcons, Cottam unofficially became the team's starting tight end, just a few months after completing his rookie season in the NFL. The 6-foot-7, 269-pound player out of the University of Tennessee told me this week that he had mixed feelings when he heard the news.

"You know, really, I was thinking this is awesome for me. I can tell you I wasn't happy to see him go, because he's really taught me a whole lot, and I'm sure I would have learned more from him this year," Cottam said. "But you always want to be the No. 1 guy. It's always hard playing behind somebody. I just saw it as a huge opportunity and the door opening for me."

Although he caught only seven passes during his NFL debut season, Cottam gained plenty of experience during seven starts that will serve him well. And he's a mature, focused individual who should quickly gain the respect of new head coach Todd Haley.

Another advantage for Cottam this year is the more stable situation at the quarterback position. After working with Brodie Croyle, Damon Huard and Tyler Thigpen in 2008, the entire Chiefs offense will benefit from the team's offseason acquisition of former Patriots quarterback Matt Cassel.

Cottam has certainly been impressed by what he's seen so far.

"He's come in and livened up the team. He's serious when he has to be, but he's really having a good time. You can just tell when people have the kind of personality about them that says they're a winner," he said. "We haven't done anything yet in terms of playing anybody, but it's just the feeling that we're around someone that's going to be good."

He isn't expected to be a HOF'er and he isn't being asked to play like Gonzo as a primary target.

This Gonzo/Cottam stuff is silly...

He's had a lot of practice. He's been Miss Congeniality for eight years.

I know that's supposed to be smack, but damn, that's funny, and a perfect description.

I think, however, I'll just call him "Mr. Congenality"

He even looks a little like a young Matt Cassel.

I'll be happy if he can assist McIntosh and catch a few in the flat on a bootleg.
