Haha. Mizzou fans would love that. Maclin has good speed and is obviously a fit for Andy Reid's offense, but he obviously has injury concerns. I'd consider it if the money was right on a one or two year deal, though I'm not quite he'll give you more than Avery is.
@TerezPaylor Any truth to the rumor I just made up that the Chiefs have already signed J Mac for next year?— Ben (@benhill88) October 10, 2013
Arrowhead Pride does a nice job breaking it down here.
@TerezPaylor Do you know how the Guinness thing works? Do they just track the whole game, or do we get one shot at it?— Alex Manners (@CornoObbligato) October 10, 2013
I'd like to think I have the swagger of a Patrice O'Neal or Notorious B.I.G.
@TerezPaylor what makes you so awesome?— Ross Martin (@PCBearcat) October 10, 2013
The funny thing is, Parkins, he actually has the athleticism and feet to serve as a blocker. But this guy is kicking tail at nose guard. Why mess with that? Fullback Anthony Sherman has been very good as a run blocker. I know I should have some fun with this question, though. So yes, Danny, it would be kind of cool...as long as he doesn't get hurt.
@TerezPaylor scale of 1-10 how awesome is my idea of using Dontari Poe as a refigerator Perry style fullback on goalline?— Danny Parkins (@DannyParkins) October 10, 2013
Even if he doesn't, I'm sure he'll play a lot.
@TerezPaylor will Marcus Cooper get the start on Sunday?— The Myth (@_LLmatic) October 10, 2013
He did Sunday. But that's something to keep an eye on, because he wasn't even targeted in 29 snaps.
@TerezPaylor: Safe to assume Jenkins will get his snaps if Avery somehow can't go?— Cody Goodwin (@codygoodwin) October 10, 2013
Nope. Normal NFL wear and tear. There's probably a dozen more guys who are a little nicked up and aren't even listed on the injury report. But I will say that Houston, Poe and Hali are the guys this defense absolutely cannot lose. They are the key to the dominant pass rush. Take any one of them away and it doesn't work nearly as well.
@TerezPaylor Dorsey has done a great job of depth mgt this far, but with the mounting injuries, is it time to panic yet?— Neta Davis (@ND622) October 10, 2013
Maybe a five? They've shown the ability to run when teams know they're running, which is the mark of a good team. I'm a little surprised they haven't broken a big one yet, though.
@TerezPaylor Scale of 1-10 how worried should we be about Oline & running game?— Jeff Fawver (@Jtfawver) October 10, 2013
I think it would be Quintin Demps. He's already got a couple of interceptions and has been really sturdy in coverage.
@TerezPaylor Who covers if Lewis can't go? Abdullah?— Joel Plantinga (@jdplantinga) October 10, 2013
I think it's 60/40 yes, but it's a guess. He told 610 Sports that he'll probably be able to go. That, plus the fact he practiced on a limited basis Thursday, is a good sign. But the fact he still hasn't been cleared to play certainly isn't good. We'll know more today.
@TerezPaylor in your opinion, do you think he plays?— Bradley (@BradLee3) October 10, 2013
