Part of being a big fan of a particular team allows for some insight that "fantasy experts" and your self-proclaimed football guru buddies often miss. I always hated watching Antonio Gates butcher the Chiefs for first downs and td's. I was impressed how the Chiefs handled him this last time (even without Berry) by blanketing him in double coverage off the line...unfortunately Rob Gronkowski is just as good (and statisically better this year) as Gates and then the Pats through Hernandez in the mix...how does Romeo stop two awesome TE's with Tom Brady throwing to them? We can't double team them...who's going to cover them? Injured Brandons (if they play)? Injured McGraw (now our best safety..yikes!) Javier Arenas ( close to a foot shorter than Gronkowski) or Sabby Piscatelli who should just wear a Patriots jersey tonight.
I'm worried guys. The Chief's defense was good on Monday vs the Chargers but that was also the Chargers...I do think that Palko will get some decent throws in..it's hard for teams to prepare for new qb's that don't have a lot of film on them and the Pat's air defense is weak. Maybe Ol' Bill will let his run game attack KC just to mix it up on a defense that made Lance Ball look like Peterson.
That being said it is Monday night and if there was ever a trap game this season..this is it.
