  1. One song

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

    He's not even better than Sammy Baugh.
  3. 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.
  4. You may have won this one, but the fantasy football gods will smite you for the rest of eternity.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  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. NFL Opening Day--Sept 11

    Bump for today.
  11. Kareem Hunt - Chiefs

  12. CBS draft analyzer is correct. That team is horrible.
  13. Mixon currently #4 on the depth chart

    Depends on if he can block. If he can't pass protect, he won't play.
  14. Finding broadcasts. Help? always posts the viewing map for the whole US. Not sure if they have week one yet. They usually post it a few days before each game.
  15. KC fires GM John Dorsey, extends Andy Reid's contract

    Dorsey was a moron. Good talent evaluator, but terrible as a GM. Dorsey was responsible for the following: 1. The tampering charge when they signed Maclin, which cost them 2 draft picks. 2. Misjudged the market on both Justin Houston and Eric Berry by waiting and signing them to long term deals, thus costing them a ton of money against the cap when they could have signed them a year early. 3. Totally botched the Justin Houston knee injury situation at the end of 2015. 4. Pretty much screwed up the roster signing of Tamba Hali a couple of years ago, thus killing their cap situation once again. 5. Because of the above issues, had to cut Maclin just so they could have the money to sign their freaking draft picks. 6. There are grumbles now around town that Mahomes can't play and that was more of a Dorsey pick than Reid. These are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head.
  16. NFL Draft

    Bears are idiots. Laughing my ass off.
  17. 2017 NFL schedule

    No they won't.
  18. Romo "retiring"...

    Romo will break his collerbone walking into the booth in week 1.
  19. KC has released Jamaal Charles

    I would look at Indy as a likely landing spot. Ballard is pretty familiar with him, and if he's healthy he would know it.
  20. Who wins this weekend?

    You are correct. Used up all the Victory for the Royals. Well worth it. But in reality, the Chiefs do have a decent chance this weekend. They were embarrassed on national TV against the Steelers. I expect this game to be a brutal, physical game. It would not surprise me to see the Chiefs win this. But it also wouldn't surprise me to see them get blown out. Chiefs are famous for playoff spectacular flame outs. Of course we aren't playing Indy this year, against whom we had the flame out two years ago, the Lin Elliott game, and the no-punt game. So maybe we do have a chance.
  21. The worst part of the storm will happen starting overnight Saturday and tapering off about mid day Sunday. It will be WAY more dangerous to have the game at noon.
