In case you missed it, I noted yesterday that for the foreseeable future, I won’t be linking any articles to The Kansas City Star. As always, I’m just trying to be upfront with you but welcome any and all feedback.

Kansas City Chiefs should trade for Vikings cornerback Trae Waynes | Fansided

Simply put, he is a good NFL cornerback who would immediately be an important part of the Kansas City Chiefs secondary. If they were able to land Waynes, he would immediately start opposite of Fuller. In nickel packages, Fuller could kick inside with Waynes and Breeland taking care of the outside receivers. The Chiefs’ cornerback situation could immediately become a strength for the team.

As far as logistics of the trade go, Kansas City 
appears to have plenty of cap spaceremaining to absorb the just over $9 million owed to Waynes in 2019. They could use the upcoming season to determine whether Waynes is worth a contract extension or not.

DB Tyrann Mathieu joins ‘Undisputed’ to talk Chiefs | Chiefs Wire

As for what Mathieu thinks about the improvement from the Chiefs defense in 2019. He expects a big jump for this team, but he explained that it’ll be a bit different for him personally.

I think we’ll be a lot better,” Mathieu said. “I think we’ve got a great challenge ahead and I told our group, ‘This is going to be a tough hill to climb.’ Especially where those guys were last year and they brought myself and Frank Clark in. And I think anytime you can bring two guys in that really have a chip on their shoulder, an edge, a certain personality, it can really rub off on guys in a positive way. I think that’s the reason they brought me in Kansas City for one, to really raise the tide of everybody around me. It’s going to be a fun season and I think we can’t get caught up into what the offense is doing. Most teams I’ve played on I’ve always been the big brother, so it’s going to be different being the little brother.”

Former Chiefs tight end Demetrius Harris explains how Pat Mahomes and Baker Mayfield are similar | Clutch Points

Jackson: You left a really good young quarterback in Kansas City and you have another really good young quarterback here. Do you see some similarities between Patrick Mahomes and Baker Mayfield?

Harris: “Most definitely. The competitiveness. Winning matters to Patrick, and I see the same in Baker. Just that will to win, from the very first (workout). They both have that drive and that confidence. Even though he was a young guy taking over last year, Pat just had so much confidence and guys respond to that. That’s how the team kept rolling because guys just believed. They followed his lead.

Four quarterbacks KC Chiefs must contain and pressure in 2019 | KC Kingdom

In Week 3 of the 2019 season, Jackson and the Ravens will again return to Arrowhead to get another shot against the Chiefs. In his second year, Jackson will likely be an improved quarterback and will already have a game of experience playing with the crowd noise in Kansas City. But how will he fair this time around?

Worth noting for this game is that this will be the Chiefs’ home opener. After spending the first two games on the road, the Chiefs will be ready to play in front of their home crowd. This in itself might be the biggest boost for a retooled defense and new defensive coordinator, Steve Spagnuolo, will have his guys ready.

The complete destruction of the Steelers still makes me chuckle every time I watch it. Look when Mahomes releases the ball here. He knew.

Trying to figure out how to explain expected points added in 3 sentences or less in an article where I'm assuming people aren't familiar with the term like

I assume all of you know this, but @SharpFootball's site is unbelievably awesome to sift through contextual stats. Just wanted you to be aware in case you weren't.

I shot 81 today. Played much better than yesterday, when I shot 79.
No birdies yesterday, three today. And four penalty strokes… none yesterday.

Colin Cowherd is such a dweeb. I remember it took him a long time to let Rodgers into his ‘top 5 qb club’ as well.

Yeah, all these Patriots fans defending him and telling Mahomes to grow up because he 😂😂😂’d at Cowherd. Everyone knows what Cowherd is. You have to be a lowlife to defend anything he says.

I don’t understand all this talk about Crabtree to the chiefs. Our WR depth is nuts. We’ve got 7 guys that would make most rosters. An overpriced and overrated veteran WR? Pass.

Again, Tyreek proves why he should never, ever throw a pass in a game. Remember last time? It was pure awful. Khalen Saunders? Now him we can talk about. It was probably covered previously and I just missed it. But man that article Seth did on him was some crazy good stuff about him playing all over the field, including wrecking it at running back. Why not QB too…er…QB II?

If we’re thinking about the same article, that was Nate Taylor. But yes, it was a great piece.

I laugh everytime someone types Carson Wentz could win the Super Bowl. Funny Stuff.

Tony Sommer

He’s super overrated. He’s not terrible, but he’s not this elite QB everybody thinks he is.

Leaf

He had that elite run during their SB season, but he’s been riddled with injuries since and while he’s been “healthy” he’s been decent but far from elite. I used the ” marks because it’s possible that he still want 100% last year. But because of injuries and him not looking that great when playing would make me leery of thinking he’s elite.

tsv0728

I dunno. When he was “on” he was peak Rapelessburgers. Tough as hell, impossible to bring down. I don’t know if he’ll get back there or not, but he clearly has the potential. I think we’ll see him earn elite status this year.

Fire_FG_the_moron
Fire_FG_the_moron

He’s a lock for the starting job on the NFL all-injured reserve team. So he is elite-ish, if you count being elite at not finishing a season.

Tarkus

So Nick Foles can win a Super Bowl, but Carson Wentz can’t?

legal_kush
legal_kush

Sure.
Lots of QB’s that shouldn’t win Super Bowls win Super Bowls. A couple of them played for the Redskins, one for the Ravens, Drew Brees had no right winning his, Elway probably shouldn’t have won two… and Brady is a piece if shit when it comes to actual talent.
Bart Starr? Are you fucking kidding me?
What is your point?
The team that wins the Super Bowl rarely has the best QB in the league that year.
Including last year.
I mean, Phyliss Rivers has never won a Super Bowl, amirite?

Tarkus

My point is, laughing when someone says Carson Wentz can win the Super Bowl is dumb.

legal_kush
legal_kush

Exactly. My bad.
Rex Grossman damn near won one.

Tarkus

That and Wentz was on his way to possibly winning the MVP a couple years ago. If he can stay healthy, he’s more than capable of winning a SB. He’s not some scrub.

Tony Sommer

That was a weak year for MVP. Even remaining healthy that season wouldn’t have gotten him a single MVP vote in most years.

Tarkus

That’s not really the point. The point is, he’s proven he can play at a very high level. You don’t need to be MVP to win a Super Bowl.

StramtoReid

I don’t want to trade a draft pick for a corner that has one year left on his rookie contract. I actually like DRob and expect him to have a semi good year, but I would trade him instead of a draft pick.

I see Harris is back on the weed.

How so? What did he say that was so bad?

That coach is straight from Michael Scott’s book. “He had no arms or legs. He could not see, hear, or speak. This is how he led a nation”

But for real, impressive.
