Winners & Losers

+

WINNER • Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles All week long, Chiefs coach Todd Haley sent out signals that he was warming to Kolby Smith and not so hot on Charles, leading some (including me) to believe that Smith was going to get a chance to be the Chiefs starter. In hindsight, I think I was duped along with anyone else who read into Haley’s demeanor. I now think he was trying to motivate Charles, who ran for 103 yards on 18 carries and became the driving force behind Kansas City’s second win. Charles also had a 40-yard kick return. Look no further for Larry Johnson’s interim replacement, as long as Charles can hold on to the football. LOSER • Oakland Raiders wideout Darrius Heyward-Bey JaMarcus Russell was awful in this game before getting benched, but I have to wonder if things would have gone differently if six different players hadn’t dropped passes. Particularly Heyward-Bey, who let a bomb that could have potentially turned into a 57-yard touchdown go right through his hands. Russell couldn’t have thrown the ball any better. It went right into Heyward-Bey’s arms … and then onto the turf. The potential touchdown could have been the difference in a 16-10 loss. ---There is also a nice piece on Titans owner Bud Adams and a rip on Fox Analyst Joe Buck
