  1. Thoughts on P. Lindsay moving forward...

    He does?
  2. can DEN beat KC?

    Broncos will win this game. They are a desperate team that knows their division hopes are seriously on the line this early in the season. If they win, they are 3-1 along with the Chiefs. They lose, and they are 2-2 and two games back already in the division. The Chiefs D is bad - really bad. Our D coordinator thinks its fun to rush 3 all day, and just play zone. Even Case Keenum can beat that defense. If he decides to bring pressure, I think KC can win this outright. But my gut is just telling me the Chiefs come back to earth a bit this week. But dang, their offense and Mahomes is pretty dang good. I really like this kid.
  3. NFL Opening Day--Sept 11

    Just was thinking today about how opening Sunday this year is on September 11th. I started to reflect on the events of that day and the time right after, when America was staggering with raw emotion. And then the way America came together made me an extremely proud man. Here are my thoughts of that day and immediately after. The day of the attack, I was driving to work listening to the radio. All of a sudden the disc jockeys started talking about a plane that hit the WTC. Then several minutes later, they were watching a monitor when the second plane hit, and were describing this on the radio. I am a contractor, and that day I was to replumb a house and replace a shower fixture. When I got to the house, the homeowner had the TV on, and we sat and watched for several minutes. He left for work, and was kind enough to leave the TV on for me to watch as I worked. The rest of the day was me in the bathroom, in the living room, under the house, in the living room, etc. That was one of the longest days of my life, and when I got home all I could do was watch the coverage until the late hours. The next few weeks were unreal. I had all these different emotions coming out. Pain. Horror. Sadness. Anger. Empathy. Sympathy. Rage. Wonderment of why this even needs to happen. And then all of this gives way to getting back to your regular life. You still have to get up, go to work, feed the kids, go to movies, and watch sports. Fast forward to the week the NFL resumed football. I was lucky enough to have tickets to the game in Kansas City that week, and our opponent was the NY Giants. I have several memories of that day. 1. Pride. I will never forget the ovation the Kansas City fans gave the players and personnel of the NY Giants when they came out of that tunnel. It went on for several minutes, and as I looked around I could see tears in the eyes of my fellow fans, as it seemed like this was the way we could maybe help a little bit here in KC. I remember reading the KC Star the next day and there were several quotes from Giants players about how touched they were at the response they got from the home crowd. I will NEVER be prouder to be a Kansas Citian. 2. The National Anthem. On a normal day this song gives me the chills, so you can only imagine how it felt that day. 78,000 people singing in unison. Normally at a Chiefs game, the fans will sing at the end: "and the home, of the Chiefs", and say the word "Chiefs" really loud. Not that day. 3. At the end of the national anthem, the in house camera focused on a fan sitting on the top row of the stadium. The fan was a firefighter, decked out with his helmet, waving the American flag. To this day I get chills thinking about that moment. And that moment made me realize one thing. We are fighters. We are Americans, dammit, and we will fight through this like we have throughout our history. That moment made me happy, and proud, and appreciative of the freedoms I enjoy, made possible by those who came before me. I am a citizen of the greatest country in the world. The United States of America.
  4. NFL Opening Day--Sept 11

    I won't ever forget that day.
  5. Proceed with caution with Kareem Hunt this year. He tweaked his hamstring in OTA's and still hasn't done much, if anything, at training camp. Something to keep an eye on. If you are IDP, keep an eye out on Reggie Ragland. Hasn't practiced yet due to his knee swelling up on the plane ride in. Something is fishy about this one ICDHO.
  6. Interesting Mayfield observation

    Hue Jackson is an ass-hat and has no business being responsible for the career of Mayfield. Mayfield is a billion percent better that Taylor and everyone knows it. Hue is trying to power trip everyone when he has absolutely no credibility to stand on. The Browns need to fire him asap. HE is the guy who will hold them back. They have talent.
  7. Your Homer Team Training Camp Chatter

    One guy to pay attention to on the Chiefs is WR Demarcus Robinson. He and Mahomes played a lot together on the scout team, and have also developed a great rapport in the preseason games last year. I would not be shocked to see him catch a fair amount of balls this year. With the weapons they have, that doesn't necessarily mean a lot, except Mahomes likes him. Might be a guy you draft in the last round of your draft and stash for a few weeks.
  8. Your Homer Team Training Camp Chatter

    Update - Hunt has practiced today.
  9. Who has been here since the 90s?

    My first username was Martyball.
  10. How do you feel about your team right now

    Chiefs will finish 10-6 and flame out in spectacular fashion again in the wild card game.
  11. Browns fans: Read this long rumor!

    Out of Rosen, Mayfield, Darnold, Jackson and Allen, 4 of those guys will be franchise quarterbacks and be in the league 15 years. The Browns will choose the 1 who is not.
  12. Sammy Watkins to the Chiefs

    Heard on the radio this morning driving to work.
  13. Sammy Watkins to the Chiefs

    I think Andy Reid thinks he is smarter than everyone else when it comes to personnel and he just isn't. I think Veach is just a mouthpiece for him and GM in name only. Reid keeping Sutton as D-coordinator convinced me he will never go to a Super Bowl much less win one. He's just an idiot.
  14. Sammy Watkins to the Chiefs

    I personally hate this signing. They spent a ton of money on a guy who can't stay healthy and has consistently underwhelmed in his brief career.
  15. FAs: what do you want for your team

    Doesn't matter, because Andy Reid is a big dumb idiot who will never fire his dumb idiot defensive coordinator and will also keep calling stupid games and not win a damn thing.
  16. One song

    Sorrow - Bad Religion. Beat THAT sky!!!!!!!!!
  17. Is Tom Brady the GOAT of all sports?

    He's not even better than Sammy Baugh.
  18. Roethlisberger and Bell not playing

    Hunt may have to play. Charcandrick West out with the flu. They only have Akeem Hunt on the roster as another rb.
  19. You may have won this one, but the fantasy football gods will smite you for the rest of eternity.
  20. Kareem Hunt - Chiefs

    Keep an eye on this guy. In Andy Reid's offense this dude could put up good numbers at the RB spot this year.
  21. Washington earned this loss

    It was a lateral back from Crowder to Cousins. He never grabbed it, but Reed picked it up and then tried to lateral it back to another player. That's when Houston picked it up. So nobody from the Skins ever recovered a fumble, because there really wasn't one.
  22. Kareem Hunt predictions for week 2

    Philly's D line is no joke. This game is going to be a defensive battler I think. I could see a TON of screens from the Chiefs in this game. I think gil is dead on for this one.
  23. What constitutes collusion?

    I see this one differently. This is exactly collusion. One owner is colluding with another owner to better their team. Yeah, the trade is fair in that in won't raise suspicion, but if the next move COULD raise suspicion because all of a sudden one owner moves the player to acquire another. And this collusion doesn't benefit both parties, but it could REALLY benefit one of the parties if she makes a trade with the player you guys colluded to get (specifically a Steelers player). Especially when both owners are husband and wife. Now, your owners may not care. But to me stuff like this can lead to issues down the road for a commish.

    Bump for today.
