okies, outta here … gotta try n get up about 6ish (ugh!) leave by 8 AM to an event in Westcliffe (about 1-1/4 hr drive) that runs 10-6 … back home about 8PM … long day for an OLD dude like me

OTOH: lots of great music AND get to see a lot of old friends and it’s been awhile for some of ’em (I’m MC and Stage Mgr – an American Legion Fundraiser AND Blues and Blues Friends, doesn’t get much better)

I think Herbert played better overall than Pat last night. Sadly for the dolts, that is not the determinative factor in which team wins.
Also that one TD pass was one in a million.

Herbert was great, and he’s gonna be a thorn in our side for a long time.

not if his coaches dont protect him better. I dont care if the bolts have a good qb or a bad one, as long as ours is better it makes me no difference. But to risk that kids health that way was terrible and I said so during the game. You can end up with punctured lungs and all sorts of nasty internal shit from busted ribs getting moved around a bunch. With 3 minutes left, it was fairly apparent they wouldnt have enough time to score twice, and when it hit the 2min warning it was essentially over. He needed to be taken out of the game for his own safety. They treat him like that and he will either get hurt and his career destroyed, or hes gonna tell the team to fuck off and sign elsewhere. Theres probably 15 -20 teams that would sign him in a heartbeat

There is that. If your QB isn’t a competitive gamer, you won’t win many, but if the coaches don’t rein that in, the success won’t last, David Carr (while not successful) is an example of that. He was a good prospect, until he got to a HOU team that decided that 5 JAGs were all the protection he needed.

Furthermore, you may have touched on something with your SB part. Treating that game as a must-win led directly to Herbert getting smacked more after the injury. Trying to claw a win back out with an injured QB’s not likely to work, and even though they made it close, that decision may well haunt them, down the line.

Tom was a class act. Loved how he coached and acted. Someone I know was named after one of his QB’s.

I looked at the schedule. After this one, there isn’t one I’d pay to watch if I didn’t get them because I’m too impatient to wait for my deliveries.

COSTA MESA, Calif. — Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert suffered a fracture to his rib cartilage during Thursday night’s 27-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs and is day-to-day, coach Brandon Staley said Friday.
“The CT scan did confirm that,” Staley said about Herbert’s diagnosis, adding that it was “good news.”

I thought the Chargers defense were bringing big pressure all night. Has the Big Orlando been graded ?

Haven’t heard of Sosa (except Sammy). But seriously though their defense brought serious pressure all night. Am I wrong?

They brought it, Mahomes was sacked only once though If I remember correctly

Mahomes does not get sacked very often….

I like PFFt gave him a bad grade. I really think he did a good job against Mack but that’s more his game. Mack is slower and stronger than Bosa.

CEH has been highly productive with the ball in his hands this year. I’m hoping these last few games will convince Andy to feature him more as a weapon in the passing game.

Illegal procedure, statements contrary to the prevailing narrative. Five-yard penalty, repeat 1st down.

RONNIE STANLEY
T, BALTIMORE RAVENS
comment image
Ronnie Stanley (ankle) is doubtful for Week 2 against the Dolphins.Still recovering from the ankle issues that have plagued him over the past two years, Stanley will be rested for Week 2. The hope will be that letting him return to full strength will prevent the injury from resurfacing later in the season. At his peak, Stanley was an All-Pro tackle. Once he returns, the Baltimore ground game could get a notable boost in efficiency. With Ja’Wuan James already out for the year, Patrick Mekari is the next man up at left tackle.
