We all love to call people out for their wrong/bad takes. But what about ours? What was your worst/dumbest take heading into the 2019 NFL season?

I’ll start: I said I didn’t “see it” with Juan Thornhill and thought of him as a 4th round project. I was proven a moron immediately.

Ok, I’ll do one – I thought Fenton would barely even manage to see the field…on special teams.

Bashaud Breeland is on Good Morning Football NOW — on NFL Network

Summary of interview:
* He’s looking for $$$ this offseason
* 21 – loves Chiefs 95, 32, 55 & of course 15
* 21 – loves Andy R as well
* 21 – loves KC

Not part of interview: fairly sure 21 will be gone & take a good payday with another NFL team – family 1st, get that $$

Berserker

Comp pick.

Another excellent look at Mahomes

@jjackson_chiefs

You guys are all giving Veach praise, but he is also the SAME guy who now has us picking last in the 1st round! What a loser! #fireVeach

TNCHIEFS

The tweets are hoot this morning! That one showing all the Broncos TDs this season. Out of both of them I couldn’t decide if I liked the first one best or the second one.

sydenham

Sure are. Ben Hillmon: “different era,” wtf, maybe he forgot the sarcasm font.

Really, that’s what you got from it? That’s masterful subtlety. If all of twitter was like that,the world might not be a better place but it would be a fuckload more fun.

Good thing I don’t have a twitter account.

Chris Jones to the Raiders – NEVER. There is our extra motivation to sign the man.

Team Player

Three firsts and $250m/6 years and I’m good. Jones gets paid, Chiefs get picks, Raiders get a headline.

DenverDonkeyHater

The headline really should of been “If Veach is too drunk to work his fax machine and doesnt at least tag jones then every single NFL team will target Jones”

Too long?

I think it’s pretty ridiculous that people would even say this. What makes anyone think he’s not a priority? Might as well say, ‘the [insert 31 teams] would like to acquire Patrick Mahomes if KC doesn’t give him a contract”. You think so, huh?

TNCHIEFS

Right – both Clark Hunt and Brett Veach have said they intend to get a deal done on Jones.

BleedingRedAndGold

And while Jones hasn’t said anything outright, he’s pretty strongly hinted that he wants to get a deal done to stay here. There is no better opportunity to win multiple Rings than KC right now. Every other team in the league his chances get worse.

CJ is not going anywhere in the division if he doesn’t stay with the Chiefs. I understand the Chiefs might not be able to mathematically sign CJ, but there not going to let him walk without some kind of compensation.

Dieter is back. I found it interesting that the official NFL championship swag t-shirt that had all the players names on it didn’t list him. Seemed odd given some that made the list.
