Chiefs 14
Falcons 38


I' m going to say this about Herm Edwards.....he is a man of his word. If he says Brodie Croyle is his man, that's his man. If he says Tyler Thigpen is the starter with Huard on the bench, Thigpen is his guy. Thigpen can throw 6 interceptions and Herm wont' bench him. I think it's more important for Herm to be prove accountable than being able to compete in a game.

3:02 PM
You know its going to be a rough season when I'm paying $300 for the NFL ticket to watch all games and they shut off the Chiefs game opting for the end of the Bills game.

FINAL
Chiefs 14
Falcons 38
