Pre-Game From Arrowhead – Jags & Chiefs

From Arrowhead Stadium

10:00 a.m. CDT – Good morning from Arrowhead. The skies here are filled with dark clouds, temperatures are cool and there’s an occasional light sprinkle falling. That’s pretty much the prediction for the rest of the afternoon. We’ll update on weather later in the morning.

10:01 a.m. – Master Joe Kim has been out early, working on individual sessions with Tamba Hali and Andy Studebaker. The workout that Hali puts in is as physical a pre-game workout as I’ve seen since the days of Hall of Fame WR Jerry Rice.

10:02 a.m. – FB Mike Cox is out early and he’s dressed as if he’ll be on the active roster again today. Cox got on the field for the first time last week, rather than Tim Castille.

10:03 a.m. – The quarterbacks and receivers are out for their normal pre-pre-game session of throwing. Part of the group is rookie WR Verran Tucker who is dressed as if he’s going to play today. The Chiefs promoted Tucker from the practice squad on Saturday, replacing another rookie WR Jeremy Horne who was released.

10:04 a.m. – Also taking part in the throwing session is veteran WR Chris Chambers. Last week when Chambers was not out early was the first indication that he would not be playing against Houston.

10:06 a.m. – Chiefs CB Javier Arenas is standing at the 45-yard line chatting with his former Alabama-now Jax QB coach Mike Shula.

10:09 a.m. – TE OLB Mike Vrabel is again part of the throwing session. Could the Chiefs possibly go back to the well on that play two weeks in a row? Stay tuned.

10:10 a.m. – There’s another week of pink as the Chiefs are having there breast cancer awarness home game. There will be shoes with flashes of pink, hand towels, head coverings, gloves and wrist bands. Right now, Vrabel and WR Dexter McCluster are sporting pink gloves, while McCluster and WR Dwayne Bowe have pink skull caps. QB Matt Cassel, Bowe, RT Barry Richardson and Chambers are sporting shoes with the color pink.

10:23 a.m. – Today’s officiating crew is headed by referee Jerome Boger.

10:25 a.m. – Alabama products Chiefs QB Brodie Croyle and Jaguars G Justin Smiley are chatting at the 40-yard line, renewing their Crimson Tide ties.

10:30 a.m. – Former Chiefs OT Jordan Black, now with the Jaguars is chatting at the 50-yard line with Chiefs LG Brian Waters.

11:00 a.m. – Inactive for the Chiefs today are CB Jackie Bates, FB Tim Castille, S Reshard Langford,LBs Charlie Anderson and JustinCole, C Rudy Niswanger, WR Chris Chambers and newly signed DL Atiyyah Ellison.

11:02 a.m. – Inactive for the Jaguars today are QB David Garrard, RB Rashad Jennings, FB Brock Bolen, OL Kevin Haslam, DL C.J. Mosley, Austen Lane and Aaron Morgan. Patrick Ramsey is the inactive third quarterback.

11;04 a.m. – Todd Bouman will start at quarterback for the Jaguars. He was re-signed by the team on Monday. He was with the team in training camp, and then spent two weeks with the Jags in late September after backup Luke McCown was injured. He’s not started an NFL game  in five seasons, dating back to the final three games of the 2005 seasonwith New Orleans.

11:08 a.m. – It’s been 2, 122 days between NFL regular season starts for Todd Bouman in the NFL. His last start was on January 1, 2006 with the Saints against Tampa Bay.

11:10 a.m. – DE Tyson Jackson is active for the first time since the season opener on September 13.  C Rudy Niswanger is a healthy inactive for the first time since his rookie season of 2006. WR Chris Chambers has his second inactive game in a row. OT Ryan O’Callaghan is active for the first time n the 2010 regular season.

11:15 a.m. – With inactive decision, it basically comes down to either/or decisions by head coach Todd Haley. For the Jacksonville game it’s Ryan O’Callaghan instead of C-G Rudy Niswanger. It’s Mike Cox at fullback instead of Tim Castille.

11:34 a.m. – No surprises in the Chiefs pre-game workout. Enjoy the game.

    … and it’s Verran Tucker instead of Chris Chambers

    I’m guessing Chambers is in the dog house for his ineffective play the first 4 games.

    The release of Horne is pretty surprising. He possibly may end up on the P.S. Interesting, though, with Tucker being moved up to the active roster. I liked both of them during the pre-season, although Horne made more plays. Tucker looks to have a solid build and runs smoothly. Tucker must have been the one making continual improvement.

    It is half time, thank goodness. The Chiefs scored first td and go ahead td but between this team has look like crap, sorry, but the Chiefs were supposed to be the better team. Nothing special about special teams coverage, defense is cleaning up behind runs and catches, and the offense. Just what was Weis’ game plan between tds is a wonderment,and we don’t need to run because our passing game is so strong.
    Second half better be a whole lot better b/c we look like the weaker team right now. Do not know where Cassel’s head is but his rag arm seems back.

    We’re getting screwed by the refs again on the PI calls. We do look bad.

    The refs are starting to become supernaturally bad. I figured a few calls against flowers for being uppity last week, but jeez… these refs are the jaqs offense

  • October 24, 2010  - bhive01 says:

    We should be dominating this game. We’re winning, but I feel as though maybe we shouldn’t be. This feels like last year all over again. Maybe not that bad, but why can’t we pull away in this game?

    The PI calls on Carr were utter crap though. Are we going to get an apology letter from the Refs or what? It was bad last week, but this week it’s just awful. Two game changing calls against us when, if anything, the call should have gone the other way. Especially the one in the end zone. Carr was tossed on the ground on that one by the receiver and he gets called for PI.

    I don’t blame the fans at all for calling the refs out on that one. I wish I was there to add my voice to the discontent.

  • October 24, 2010  - Robert says:

    refs butt out and we go up by 20, i don’t think that was a coincidence.

  • October 24, 2010  - Mike says:

    A win is a win. We looked much stronger the 2nd half.
