    I think it's gotta be Brian Waters. He has been so invaluable to us especially considering our O line situation. I think the O line played well tonight, despite the sacks. With vollmers injury as well as Koppen being out for the year, where would we be without him? He has been more than dependable, in fact I'm wondering why KC parted ways with him.

    I agree, Brian Waters. Mark Anderson hasn't been bad either.

    Waters was phenomenal. The whole line was amazing. Many thanks to the clueless Chiefs braintrust.

    Waters. Hope we can give him some rest time later in the season.

    He's not a young un

    Oh for sure, Connolly has stepped up BIG time. I honestly didn't expect the ansition from Koppen to him, to be so fluid.

    Yes i Has to be Waters he and Conolly have pretty much shored up the middle. Most of the pressure on Brady was coming from the edges and he can handle that. He struggles (as do most qbs) when it comes up the middle.

    Muddy Waters. Can't wait until Seabass comes back. Solder at te. Gronk lined up right to the left of him off of the line. A. Hernandez will be a short-flex te on the right. That team is going to run the ball down team's throats all year if we stay healthy.

    The Chiefs had a young player they wanted to start and Waters had too big of a name and was earning too much money to be a backup there. Cutting him wasn't really that bad of a decision.

    Waters is the no-brainer, but Mark Anderson is making key Fourth Quarter plays with regularity. He and Carter have proven themselves worthy. Ocho and Big Al need to be shown the door....Ocho at seasons end and Haynesworth once Brace and Deaderick return.

    Brian waters....the most important aspect of our team to overcome someone like the jets is the O-line...giving brady more time to throw/better blocking at the line for the run game.

    Waters has been a tremendous signing just like I thought it would be. It's like having another Mankins on the right side.

    Waters no doubt. He's been real good in all phases.

    eh...big al has been injured...but when hes been on the field he's made an impact...I thought he looked good today...helped create pressure on the pocket so others could get penetration. Sanchez just was able to get rid of the ball most of the time

    same with ochocinco...hes looked good these past 2 weeks. came out today. grabbed 2 quick first downs...13yards each catch..the problem with him is that hes only getting about 19snaps a game...and isnt targeted much.

    people have to realise that he's the #3 wide receiver on a team that runs twin tight end sets 80% of the time..so, ocho isnt going to get the targets. the reason he was signed was for in the event that branch(which is very likely) misses games as someone who can step in and be productive..there will be some games that he will play a big role in IMO

    Waters no doubt about it he has been very dependable so far. Mark Anderson making his mark also. His makeing his bones with little snaps. DL needs to gel we talk about when it comes nov. and dec.
