If you don't recall, there was some question from the Chiefs fan side of things as to whether Johnson's hit on Berry was dirty. Berry himself seemed to question the play in a couple of cryptic tweets and messages in the last year.
So some are wondering if this is a revenge game for Berry.
I don't see it at all. That's not Berry's style at all. He won't be out looking to take a cheap shot for "revenge" or anything like that. I can't see that happening. Now if he has a chance to blow Stevie up on a legal hit across the middle? Well, that's a different story but Berry would do that to anyone, regardless of whether it's the guy who tore up his knee last year.
And then there's this from Stevie Johnson:
Hahahhaha.. These Kansas City Chefs "fans"... Hahaha— Stevie Johnson (@StevieJohnson13) September 12, 2012
Why the quotation marks? No, really, I don't get it. Old Man Thorman is a fan of the unnecessary quotation marks as well. I don't even know what that means.
The four questions to Romeo Crennel are after the jump.
1. Is this a game that carries any significance where guys have circled it because of what happened between Eric Berry and Stevie Johnson last year?
Crennel: "I don't believe so. Last year is last year and this year is this year. We need to focus on this year and trying to get better and trying to win the game."
2. So nobody has been focusing on that play where he tore his ACL last year?
Crennel: "Not to my knowledge."
3. Eric Berry seemed to think the Bills went after him. Do you agree with him?
Crennel: "I know Eric had mentioned that last year, during the offseason I think it was. He hasn't mentioned anything this year other than trying to prepare to win this game."
4. Do you think it's going to be tough for him to go up against Steve Johnson?
Crennel "I don't think Eric has any difficulty going up against anybody. He enjoys the game; he wants to play the game, and he wants to play it at a high level."
