Huh? 5-9, 213 is around the average for every down backs in the NFL.

Plus you have to think that eventually defenses will learn to send 10 or 11 guys at Holmes when the Chiefs are at the goal-line. I don't think worrying about Johnnie Morton or Eddie Kennison should be too high on the priority list, although Gonzo deserves attention at the goal-line.


You don't think they haven't? Have you ever seen a Chiefs game? He runs behind two tons of path clearing blockers. It's like an esecort service... Just without the hookers. It's not just his o-line. They emply lead blocking fullback Tony Richardson and TE Jason Dunn. The Chiefs effectively play with 7 lineman almost every down.

I can't count the number of times I watched the Chiefs play, and they'd get to the goal-line, and all 70,000 people in the stands knew who it was going to, but the defense was just playing a zone coverage or something. ATTACK PRIEST! FFS, I should be a defensive coordinator.


I can't count the numbers of times I've seen opposing defenders blown off the line of scrimmage and linebackers lit up by blockers to make a TD a cake walk for Priest. They use enough misdirection at the goal line (passes to Dunn & Gonzo/bootleg run/pass options with Green), to keep the defense mostly honest.
