Frightening Start for Opening Sunday -- UPDATE

↵A few frightening early notes on the first NFL Sunday of the season:
↵
↵* Tom Brady's knee got taken out in the pocket by an anonymous Chief. (Is there any other type of Chief?) Matt Cassel came into the game. Brady went to the locker room. "Return quesitonable," says the CBS ticker. Cassel has hit Randy Moss for a TD, though. It will take a better team than Kansas City to keep the Patriots from Dreamboatin' all over the NFL's collective ass this season. UPDATE: Brady isn't returning today. Uh oh.
↵
↵* Chad Ochocinco gets no respect. He's wearing "C. Johnson" today against the Ravens. ESPN.com says it's a Reebok thing, which means Ochocinco hasn't purchased all his outstanding "Johnson" jerseys, which has to be done before they'll issue "Ochocinco" jerseys. Sounds like a bunch of BUH-loney to me. Free Ochocinco!
↵
↵* Detroit is getting destroyed by Atlanta, 21-0 in the early second. Matty Ice has 62-yard TD pass to Michael Jenkins under his belt. Michael Turner has two TDs on 117 yards, including a 66-yard romp. Atlanta, yeah!↵
