What is it that you think they saw? 'Cause it looks to me like they saw a 3rd-string back, who wasn't even fit to share carries with a 36-year old, underperforming 2nd-stringer coming back off a career-ending neck injury.
I mean, Edwards was talking about how Kolby and Priest would share carries, and the he got 2 carries to Priest's 20 carries. If they saw something in him, you think they would have given him more opportunities, especially with Priest's last scare with his neck injury.
He's the RB equivalent of the fat ugly chick somebody makes out it with when they are drunk and horny because nobody else is avaible or interested. The Chiefs are feeling the need, but don't have any other options . . . "of course I think you're pretty, Kolby."
I'm not saying he can't have a good game . . . just that I don't see anything in Herm Edwards' actions that speak of any special confidence in him.
It's time to put down the crack-pipe and step away from the keyboard.
