    I though Sammy Morris looked good coming back from his injury. Same guy who played well last year. I'm still surprised so many thought he'd be cut. Wither Lamont Jordan?

    Deltha O'Neal looked good - couple of good plays. As did Seymour.

    Oh boy James Sanders. Where were you going?

    Edit: I can at least spell the guy's name right

    GOOD

    Cassel - Played about as well as you can ask of a backup. Bailed out the offense by leading a 98 yd TD drive when the team needed momentum. Didn't turn the ball over. Scrambled for the 1st down on third and three when his receivers were covered.

    David Thomas - stepped in to the starting TE role and looked solid. Still needs to work on his blocking.

    Left side of the line- for the most part looked strong

    RB - Maroney and Morris looked good.

    D line - solid play from the front three
    Mayo - very solid game. Lined up on the weak side mostly but also playing the strong side on plays. Just a solid, every down linebacker in only his first game. when not in on the initial hit, seen at the end of the play all over the field

    CB - he didn't get tested that much but Sanders looked solid starting across from Hobbs.

    Bad

    Kazcur - When he's not wiffing on a run block he's wiffing on a pass block

    Moss/Welker - hart to both get punked at the same time by a geriatric corner ( Pat Surtain), but they did. Moss falling down and fumbling to kill a drive is inexcusable. I think Welker's still injured.

    Safeties - brutal. James Sanders is a liability in coverage, Harrison was a non factor, and Merriweather completely lost the receiver on the long play which almost set up a touchdown to tie the game in the 4th qtr.

    That play wasn't Meriweather's fault. They were playing a zone and Meriweather passed his guy off and Sanders wasn't in the right position to pick up the coverage.

    I think the only negatives as far as play is concerned are the fumbles by Welker and Moss and the safeties being completely out of position on the long completion late in the 4th. I think the o-line played well for the most part although protection had some problems when the Chiefs blitzed. I like that Cassell played well and did not really make any bad decisions (very encouraging.) Morris and Maroney had some nice runs. It is very difficult to rate a Week One performance, but there were certainly enough positives to build on.

    That blown coverage was totally on Sanders, not Meriweather.

    The good for me.

    The running backs I thought all played well.

    I liked some of the D calls I saw in the game, IE Hobbs corner blitz for the sack. Even though it was on the long pass play, another corner blitz that put a good hit on the QB.

    Both OLB's I thought played well.

    I thought the speed on the D looked faster.

    The bad.

    Merriweather talked about working on his hands in the offseason and he lets a ball in the endzone go right through his hands. He was lined up against the WR on the long pass and stood still and let the guy run right by him.

    Kazur is going to get QB's killed on this team, I thought he sucked.

    Good:

    Sammy Morris- Runs hard, a nice complement to Maroney. Stepped up with Faulk out

    Matt Cassel- Pretty obvious, stepped up and played well

    Dave Thomas- Some nice, big catches. Nice job filling in for Watson

    The whole defense- Really came through when they had to. Sticking to the bend but dont break defense

    Bad:

    Wes Welker- The fumble but then just looked terrible returning punts

    James Sanders- Just looks lost out there

    Chris Hansen- Had a nice punt, but also couldnt pin the ball inside the 20, always kicking it into the endzone.

    Disable Jersey

    I saw Kaczur block well on several big runs.
    Harrison sad to say was 1 step too slow in several plays
    James Sanders overran the play on the big completion on KCs final drive

    Hard to be critical of a D allowing so few points having given up 2 turn overs and several stalled drives. Really good game by the run D.

    Once again, they were playing a zone. Meriweather passed the WR off to the next zone so that he could stay in the one he was responsible for. The play was Sanders' fault.

    Ok, lets not be all coach like. You and I have no clue who had who and what play was called. I heard BB time and time again say that all zone D will always turn into man to man.

    No Jersey Selected

    I saw the game at the bar, on a small screen, at about the distance & height of a freethrow attempt, with no sound. But I thought that the # of the player, who inexcusably over-ran the receiver during the long pass-play on the last drive, was #31. Am I mistaken?

    Meriweather was covering, but as others have pointed out, it appeared they were in zone, and Sanders was out of position and or overran the play. Dierdorf put the blame of the play on Sanders, FWIW.

    But Sanders played a good game aside from that play, and so did Meriweather.

    Rodney is one of my favorite players but he looked slow today.

    Deltha O'Neal was invaluable

    RB's did good

    Defense ok, that long play in the middle at the end was pitiful.

    So, let me get this straight. You have a radio receiver that heard what the play call was and you know that Meriweather made the right play but Sanders the wrong one?

    That is what you just said.

    How do you know that Meriweather didn't blow the play and that Sanders was doing what he was supposed to?
