  1. One song

    I admire you guys' dedication.
  2. Tyreek Hill again...

    If he stays on the Chiefs, he won't get an extension yet. They can franchise tag him next year. They have Chris Jones contract to do first, and then Patrick Mahomes gets his after this season. As for the suspension, this will be interesting to watch. The tide has turned a little bit here in KC, as it seems we haven't gotten the entire story. The assumption has been it was all Tyreek Hill, but his fiance is no peach either. My guess is 4 games, but it wouldn't shock me if he got less than that.
  3. NFL draft - 2021 = Cleveland, 2023 = Kansas City

    You got that right.
  4. NFL draft - 2021 = Cleveland, 2023 = Kansas City

    Should be fun. I'll head down there for sure. If any of you guys decide to come in a few years, send me a PM and I'll buy you a beer.
  5. Frank Clark to KC

    They are clearly following the Giants model of years ago when they kept drafting defensive lineman.
  6. Frank Clark to KC

    Not really. Dee Ford doesn't fit the mode of the defense Spagnoulo wants to run. Edit to add: and really, the Chiefs needed to clean house here. Ford played well last year because he wanted to get paid. Previous to that he had injury after injury and would always sit out a few games a year.
  7. 2019 Vegas Win Total Over/Under

    I would take the over on the Patriots. Their schedule is so freaking easy.
  8. Tyreek Hill again...

    Man, you are so wrong here. KC WILL cut him. Clark Hunt will not tolerate it. As for Kareem Hunt, you can hang your hat and your shtick all you want on the lying thing, but neither you or I or anyone but the Chiefs and Kareem Hunt really know what went on between them behind closed doors. Pick apart a press release if you want - that's your personal crusade against verbiage. But enough of this crap about management styles and blah blah blah. The Chiefs took appropriate action with Hunt and they will do the same with Hill.
  9. 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.
  10. Chief's running game--Good

    Quick report on Chiefs v Vikings. Priest and the O-line looked great. Even with Will Shields not playing, the Chiefs running game was looking good. Priest had 4 carries for around 40 yards. LJ came in and had some good carries as well. Something like 8 carries for 40 yards. Passing game-OK, but not great. Defense. Bad. Special Teams. Bad.
  11. Greetings

    Yep. Priest Holmes' MRI: still negative.
  12. Draft tonight--Need help

    OK. I have the 6th pick in a 12 team redraft. Standard performance scoring. Any idea who might be available? Draft starts in 15 minutes.
  13. Saints/Giants game

    I bet New Orleans really appreciates that "home crowd" they got tonight. They got royally screwed. Literally makes me sick listening to the Giants fans. You can almost see it in the Saint's players eyes. They know it's just not fair.
  14. Michele Tafoya's Replacement

    Yeah, she was hot.
  15. Saints/Giants game

    This is such a crock of shat. That was a KC home game for one, and NOBODY can deny the Saints got screwed. It appalls me that people would even defend this.
  16. Sterling really likes what he is seeing

    Time to make a "special" play. Gotta be ready to make those plays that are "special".
  17. Holmes is looking old!

    Yeah, Willie Roaf.
  18. Today...It's on!

    Interesting. I assume then you still get a good "smoky" flavor as you would with a smoker. So the plate setter serves as kind of a blocker so the heat will rotate around the plate setter? I assume thats the case so you don't cook the meat too fast. On a side note, that lump charcoal is great. I also use A LOT of apple wood when smoking. It's amazing how the fruit woods add a TON of flavor to the meat.
  19. Today...It's on!

    He's been typing a long time.
  20. WHAT ARE YOU EATING/DRINKING TODAY?

    Good luck with the new job.
  21. WHAT ARE YOU EATING/DRINKING TODAY?

    I get to have three beers. All day. My wife is due any minute, and I am under a STERN WARNING to not get a DUI on the way to the hospital.
  22. From the crockpot-week 2

    I agree. Football Sunday doesn't begin until PantherDave regales us with his crockpot stories.
  23. Today...It's on!

    untateve, I was wondering if you can give us a rundown of how the thing works. I'd be interested to know the way the egg is setup internally. Does it have a rack for the fire at the bottom, and does it have a water pan built in. Also, does it have a door or entry point on the side to reload wood, or do you only have to light one fire, and the egg is efficient enough to allow the fire to burn at a slow, consistent rate?
  24. Today...It's on!

    Lately we have been putting rub on right before the ribs go on. We are trying to test the theory that the salt and spices actually pull tenderness from the meat. We have had great results with this, but aren't sure if it's because of this or some other techniques we have been employing. Either way, the ribs taste great. A friend of mine started doing it 15 minutes before as he has been entering BBQ contests in the area, and his results and placements in the tourneys has gone up dramatically since changing.
  25. From the crockpot-week 2

    We are having the usual. Smoked brisket and baby back ribs. Also gonna do some pork tenderloin. Long day for us today, since the Chiefs don't play until tonight.
