  1. Best Week One Matchup

    Pad.
  2. Rodgers wants out of GB

    The NFL is gonna be PISSED with all the Packers games that were more than likely going to be in prime time if this happens. Especially the Chiefs/Packers game. And right before the schedule announcement in a couple of weeks. Would make the Broncos/Chiefs games must-see TV though.
  3. NFL will release 2021 schedule Wed. May 12

    Well, a lot of people travel to games, or want to plan for games around special occasions and such. Some people need to save money for these, take time off work, make travel arrangements, etc. So the later the schedule comes out can impact a lot of this, especially if people need to take time off work.
  4. NFL will release 2021 schedule Wed. May 12

    Because they want to be in the news in the middle of May. That's the only reason. I hate it.
  5. Alex Smith announces retirment

    Helped to turn the Chiefs back around after that awful Pioli era. One of the good guys in football and sports.
  6. Bears give Akiem Hicks permission to seek a trade

    If that dude is allowed to draft this year it's just criminal to that organization and fan base.
  7. Teams asking about Russell Wilson

    Oh come on now. Wilson is a franchise QB and a clear Hall of Famer if he stays on this trajectory. You simply don't trade those guys in their prime - ever. You are forgiven, however, as a Browns fan. Seeing as you would not know what a franchise quarterback looks like.
  8. Not a stunner here. Fisher tore his Achilles in the AFC Championship game. Schwartz hadn't played most of the year with a bad back. So both guys would have been a gamble to even play in 2021. Not to mention their huge cap numbers. Figured this would happen.
  9. Kenny Golladay signs with the G-Men

    The Chiefs need a good #2. Neither of those guys listed above fit that bill. I could absolutely see the Chiefs spend money on that position. They are in win-now mode.

  11. Teams asking about Russell Wilson

    So what's the fan bases opinion of Wilson? From the outside looking in, I've always enjoyed his play. But when he talks, I feel like he says what he thinks the rest of the world wants to hear. I know he's a good community guy and all, but wondering if his heart is in it or if he wants his "image" to look good. If that makes sense.
  12. Teams asking about Russell Wilson

    This just astounds me. If this was Peyton Manning at the end of his career - ok. But this is Russell Wilson - a potential HOF'er in his prime. How the heck do you trade that guy? If anything, Pete Carroll needs to be shown the door and bring in a coach that can maximize his skills. The Seahawks have done Wilson a disservice surrounding him with that turd O-line for all these years. This is seriously shades of the Packers and McCarthy basically wasting Aaron Rodgers career. Sure, they each have a Super Bowl ring, but it should have been so much more on both sides. Awful.
  13. Teams asking about Russell Wilson

    I was thinking of them when I posted that...
  14. Teams asking about Russell Wilson

    All of Chicago would have heart attacks if Russell Wilson ended up there.
  15. J.J. Watt’s landing spots

    If he wants to win a ring, this boils down to 5 teams: 1. Green Bay 2. Tampa Bay 3. Kansas City 4. Bills 5. Browns I think the Chiefs would be in play for him.
  16. Super Bowl predictions

    Yeah, agree. I still want to know what the Saints did to piss off the NFL. It's got to be something more than the Bountygate thing. The Saints get screwed more than any other team out there and it's not even close.
  17. RIP Marty Schottenheimer

    Bummer. I started coming to The Huddle when Marty was the coach of the Chiefs. My original name here was Martyball. Loved that guy - he and Carl Peterson rejuvenated the Chiefs and brought them back to relevance, which they have sustained to this day. Sad for him and his family.
  18. Super Bowl predictions

    All I know is the Chiefs didn't get sheeeeit for calls until we had Mahomes.
  19. Super Bowl predictions

    Yep, agree. That and someone put 2.3 million on the Bucs to cover, so you know the fix is in at the casino in Vegas. As much as this will piss me off, the Bucs have this one.
  20. Urban Meyer in contract talks with Jacksonville

    Who cares. They've won three Super Bowls.

  23. 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.
