The Kansas City Chiefs will be without starting LT Eric Fisher in Super Bowl LV, which means that another player will be asked to step up and take his place. The likeliest scenario is that starting RT Mike Remmers slide over to the left side and replaces Fisher.

Speaking to the media during Super Bowl LV’s Opening Night, Buccaneers OLB Jason Pierre-Paul revealed that he doesn’t know who Remmers is.

“Man, I didn’t even know who that was, I ain’t going to lie to you,” Pierre-Paul told reporters. “This is the tackle that you’re talking about? I mean like I said, I don’t too much care about it. They’ve got to figure that out and I’m going to play some great football.”

Remmers and Pierre-Paul actually faced off a few times in Week 12, when Pierre Paul lined up on the defensive left. It seems unlikely that he truly doesn’t know who Remmers is. Earlier in the conference call, Pierre-Paul explained mentality in regards to the Chiefs’ offensive line heading into the game.

“I don’t care, it don’t matter,” Pierre-Paul said. “This is the freaking Super Bowl. I don’t care if they have three offensive linemen, send two to block me, three to block me. I’m going to do what I need to do. Us boys are going to do what we need to do. That’s a you problem, that’s like— they gotta figure that out. I’m coming to play a football game, not any football game, but Super Bowl 55. I don’t got time to play any games, the only game I’m playing is football. To answer your question, I don’t care about their offensive linemen. I don’t care.”

It makes a bit more sense in this light, Pierre-Paul intends to have a great game regardless of who he faces on the offensive line. Still, you’d think he’d want to prepare for the individual player to have a better sense of how to beat him.

In any event, this should provide some more bulletin board material for Remmers. He has a lot to prove in the Super Bowl after failing to win Super Bowl 50 while playing for the Carolina Panthers.
