Pre-Game: Rams vs. Chiefs

From Arrowhead Stadium

It’s a beautiful night for football as the Chiefs host the Rams in the Governor’s Cup Game.

Either this is a very late arriving crowd or this game will be sparsely attended. There are still plenty of parking spots open in the complex and some 15 minutes before kickoff we can count the fans in each section.

For the Chiefs, one surprise among the players not dressed is LG Ryan Lilja. He was on the sidelines during the warm-up period. Looks like rookie Rodney Hudson will get the start for Lilja. No word or idea on what may be bothering the veteran blocker from K-State.

Also not taking part in warm-ups were: LB Gabe Miller (hamstring), LB Eric Bakhtiari (concussion), C/G Darryl Harris (knee), OT Ryan O”Callaghan (unknown), TE Jake O’Connell (ankle), WR Jonathan Baldwin (wrist/thumb), OLB Pierre Walters (unknown) and NT Anthony Toribio (knee).

We’ll keep an eye on how much time RB Jamaal Charles, CB Brandon Flowers and OT Jared Gaither get in the game. All three were bothered by injuries during the week, but are fully dressed and took part in the warm-up period.

Chiefs coaches are wearing red t-shirts tonight honoring the continued relief efforts in Joplin.

Weather report for the game – partly cloudy skies … with a low around 69 degrees … a south wind blowing around 5 mph … kickoff temperatures 82 degrees.

    ah jeez. we are a trainwreck of a team through the first half. I’m wondering how many more holds we can rack up. 52 sec. left in half as i write this.

    So much for the Haley plan of conditioning. We will have the best conditioned team that puts no effort out in the NFL. Might as well not even played a single starter, need to keep them hidden as long as possible. Whine, don’t think so, this team put no effort into this game, just threw their helmets on the field for the governor’s cup, wow
