Makes you wonder why they didn't make a play for A-Train....

I wonder what Emmit Smith is up to these days.... I mean, the Chiefs have a long history of serving geritol and ensure instead of gatorade on the sideline....

It seems that the Chiefs like Cruz as a special teams player, but list him as a FB. I don't recall seeing him in on an offensive play at all this year, I wouldn't count on him seeing action at tailback.

I'm sure they will sign someone in the next week or two... I wouldn't waste a roster spot 'til we see who that is... The front runner appears to be Quentin Griffin....

On a side note, if the Chiefs pick up Griffin, I'm very interested to see how they utilize him... Seems to me like Griffin and LJ make a good RBBC combo... LJ has all the power in the world, but I'd love to see what Griffin could do with his speed and the massive holes that the KC line is able to open up.... I mean, the guy doesn't have much bulk, but in the open field he's absolutely DEADLY... Besides, I have to think Vermeil remembers what he did to them in week 1 last year....

Straight from the horse's mouth...


Q: Have you looked at other running backs besides Dee Brown?

VERMEIL: “Griffin, the Denver Broncos former player, we’ve brought in before. We think he can play but our offense has such a huge volume that it is very, very difficult for a player to step in unless he’s been in the scheme and we don’t want to restrict our scheme because of one player. Now, if you had to, you would. But Dee Brown is very capable and was very smart in training camp and he normally would have made our 53-man roster at the time we went to the final cut.”


Q: Dee Brown said he doesn’t think he’s forgotten too much from training camp. Do you think he’s gotten a firm grasp of the offense?

VERMEIL: “Yeah, he’s done very well. He’s a very bright guy and very athletic and that’s a nice combination. He stepped in and done very well. It’s not like learning it all over again.

“(Running backs coach) James Saxon would talk to him through the whole time (he was gone), checking in with him and letting him know. We try to be honest with our players in letting them know why I was (bringing him in), like when I told him why I was letting him go. I told him if I had the opportunity to bring him back I would. He’s stayed in shape and did what we asked him to do.”

Q: If something did happen to Larry would you be more inclined to go with one back like (Tony) Richardson?

VERMEIL: “I don’t know. T-Rich can play both spots, so that could happen.”


Make of this what you will, but Vermeil rarely plays the "misdirection" game with the press.
