I pasted some other comments about the KC WRs as well for general interest..
BORCHARD: Are you worried at all about (TE Tony) Gonzalez not being that active?
VERMEIL: “I’m always worried when he doesn’t catch enough footballs. But we didn’t throw that much last week. We always go into the ballgame with a lot for Tony Gonzalez to do. But you can’t let that dominate your thinking. Certainly, we’d like to get the ball in his hands more than two times, believe me. I can make excuses but I don’t. We did things to try and get him the ball and it didn’t work. Two receptions are not enough.”
IVAN CARTER, KANSAS CITY STAR: Is it harder to force-feed a ball to a tight end than a wide receiver?
VERMEIL: “I think it depends on your overall pass offense scheme and how you utilize your formations and everything. You just don’t always get what you wanted.”
BORCHARD: Last year it seemed like (WR) Dante Hall and (WR Marc) Boereigter were getting their share of receptions which this year seems to have flip-flopped in favor of Hall this early in the season. Is there any reason for that?
VERMEIL: “Well, it’s early in the season. I think we made a little better effort in the off-season in working on more things for the third down situations and packages that will allow us to take advantage against man coverages anyway. Dante’s abilities are to shake-and-break and explode away from somebody to create separation so that when he catches the ball he has the ability to run.
“At the same time we respect what Boerigter brings to the game in a different theme and we have that package ready to go, too. You can’t forget the fact that Boergiter has scored eight touchdowns last year and we won’t.
