3 out of our 9 drives resulted in negative yards. I don't need to remind anyone here that the Chiefs offense is in poor shape. The Texan game exposed a completely impotent offense, as the numbers above show. I fully expect the offensive woes to continue against the Bears, unless Herm decides to give Chicago a heavy dose of Larry Johnson. At the very least, if LJ gets around 20 carries, we can see how much that opens up the passing game.

Anyone else think that offensive coordinator Mike Solari is boring enough that he could benefit from a weekend of Madden 2008?
