“Who?”

“Chris Jones!”

“Who?”

“Chris Jones!”

“Who?”

“CHRIS JONES!!”

It’s fun to get this going pre-game watching warm ups. Always someone getting it going or joining in.

FWIW, I have another Buffet scheduled for tomorrow, hope it’s enjoyed. Also, I don’t have much respect for Zahi Hawas. He abandoned science long ago, in favor of a particular narrative, not to mention that he seems to believe that he’s the only one who knows everything about Egyptian archeology, and thus can declare legitimate hypotheses invalid when he disagrees with them.

That’s not science, it’s PR, politics, and ego.

Kelce needs 139 yards to have 10K yards. It would be cool to have it happen Sunday at home.

He will be far and away the quickest TE to reach 10K yards. Tony G holds the record at 177 games.

He might, but I hope he’s at 90% or better. Donald’s not at his best this year, but he’s still a force to be reckoned with.

If Hill had stayed with the Chiefs for his career, he and Kelce could have been the best WR/TE duo in NFL history.

Even if they did hinder each other, which they hardly did in the past, who would have been a better duo?

BleedingRedAndGold
Reply to  Tyrone
11/25/2022 8:03 pm

They did, but not in the way most seem to think. It’s not that they competed for reps, exactly, it’s that the entire offense ended up running through them, which made us predictable. Remember how the NFL had “cracked the code” to keeping us in check last season?

As a cross-check, without Hill’s need for reps hindering him, Mahomes has bounced back stronger.

Who’d have thunk it that Hill and Mahomes would have career years without each other?

NovaChiefs

11/25/2022 6:48 pm

They’ve both been having career years for the last 5 years.
I honestly expected that Hill would suffer, but maybe Tua is more solid than I thought.

Kelce is just over 1000 yards and 8 TDs shy of the Chiefs records.

*receiving TDs. He’s only 5 away in total TDs. He has 2 rushing and one fumble recovery

Most people have Kelce as the best tight end ever over Gonzalez. I am now one of those people but wonder how much different we might feel had Tony G stayed with KC for his entire career. Numbers would still be similar – probably less for Tony but sentiment behind him would be higher.

ForeverRanger91
Reply to  EAFOX
11/25/2022 6:41 pm

I was looking at the numbers and Kelce is going to top Tony in about 3 less seasons.

EAFOX
Reply to  ForeverRanger91
11/25/2022 6:48 pm

More than three. Kelce is not showing any signs of slowing down but it will be inevitable. He needs three more prime seasons to be in the neighborhood of Tony’s numbers.

ForeverRanger91
Reply to  EAFOX
11/25/2022 6:49 pm

I mean in terms of Chiefs numbers. Kelce should pass him middle of next season.

He will also catch Bowe and Hill for most TDs in a single season.

This is a very good listen. A lot of good stats and thoughts. Mitch about drove off of the road on the way home when he was driving home @ 5:15 am after their flight in from LA. Some national talking head was calling Shannon Sharpe the greatest TE. Funny as hell.

When asked if QB Bryce Perkins will start on Sunday against the Chiefs, Sean McVay said, “You’ll see on Sunday.”
