Eachus, who has been primarily playing on special teams the first two weeks, saw his playing time on offense increase as Peyton Hillis nurses an injured ankle that limited him to 3 carries for 11 yards in last week’s 27-24 overtime win over the New Orleans Saints.
“It was exciting,” Eachus said Saturday, not only of his first start, but his role in springing Charles to his huge offensive day. “Jamaal doesn’t need much room to run, but it was nice to know that I helped him out. It was pretty cool that I was his fullback on his 233-yard rushing day.”
Lamar Hunt: A Life in Sports was written by Michael MacCambridge chronicling the lasting legacy of one of America’s greatest sportsmen. MacCambridge examines in rare detail Hunt’s life and career which forever changed the landscape of professional sports.
“We are very excited about the release of Lamar Hunt: A Life in Sports, and we hope that fans of all sports will enjoy reading about the life and legacy of my father in this outstanding work by Michael MacCambridge. Michael is well-respected as both an author and a sports historian, and with exhaustive research, unprecedented access and poignant eloquence, he has crafted the definitive biography of my father’s life.”
Jackie Battle and LeRon McClain will be coming back to their old stomping grounds. Players that face former teams seem to make big things happen. Remember when Antwan Barnes terrorized the Baltimore Ravens last season? This time Battle and McClain can release the thunder on their former mates. Maybe Jared Gaither can come back for the game also to help.
Demorrio Williams is another former Chief that can offer a little more insight on what Romeo Crennel wants to do on defense. Each former Chiefs player on the roster should have a little extra incentive to perform at a high level and they can give us some insider info on what they do in that locker room.
Patrick Allen is VP of Content for the FanSided Network. He also serves the managing editor of the network's very first site, Arrowhead Addict. Originally from Ohio, Patrick is a Chiefs fan first and a Browns fan second (I know!). He also pulls for the Buckeyes, Indians and Cavs. Guinness is thinking of naming him the most miserable sports fan of all time. @rpatrickallen
