Friday O/T: Chiefs place Juan Thornhill on PUP

 65 replies

Chiefs have a plan at Safety while Thornhill heals up.

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised… but still, it’s not what you want to hear from the Chief’s front office. Juan continues to be upbeat about his whole healing process. And we’ve generally heard good things about his recovering.

Tyrann had this to say about Juan playing this year.

My hope for Juan is that, you know he take it easy (on his knee and recovery). You know, he don’t put any extra stress on himself. Obviously, he plays for a good football team and umm I think we have the ability to play late into the season (so that could afford him to make an impact later in the seaeason); I think him being a young guy, I think the most important thing for him is his health, ya know so… As long as he can kinda keep that in front of him, ya know being anxious to play I think he’ll make the right decisions.

The Chiefs signing Safety Tedric Thompson a few days ago is making a lot more sense. Tedric is a former 4th round pick by the Seahawks in 2017. He had 19 tackles, two pass deflections and two interceptions in 2019. He was cut this offseason, not sure why.

Those numbers aren’t bad… I think its great insurance going forward. Not to mention, we still have Dirtiest of Dans still roaming around. Thoughts?

Just got off the phone with my nephew. He’s a good kid but a broncos fan. I asked him if he saw that Mahomes bought an interest in the royals and he said yeah.

Then I said it’s kinda cool that he owns more teams than just the broncos now. Hahaha

He took it in stride and chuckled. He knows Mahomes is the best and has legitimately owned the broncos. He’s hopeful w Lock as he should be for now.

Elway is following the Veach model: get the young QB and surround him w weapons. They have a solid receiving corps that can put up points and Lock has played well in all but one snowy divisional game against the team he grew up following. He’s easily the second best QB in the division right now.

but remember too, Mahomes joined a playoff team, not one with an atrocious O-Line , and Veach has been much more “on target” and smart about what he does in just a coupla years than Elway has in for … well, ever

If you’re thinking about betting this game, I’d go ahead and bet it now, because there’s a good chance the point spread will only go up between now and Week 1 no matter how many players Kansas City’s roster end up sitting out the season. The Chiefs will be returning 18 of 22 starters in 2020, and that includes the fact that their starting running back and starting right guard have already decided to skip the season (Chiefs gambling note: Unless the Patrick Mahomes or Kansas City’s entire offensive line decides to sit out the season, I will not be betting against the Chiefs in this game).

As it turns out, the Marlins are stupid. Apparently the MLB found that players weren’t following protocols by going out and hanging out in bars.

Stuff like this and the guy who broke the NBA’s bubble contain is another reason that I don’t see a bubble being compatible with the NFL. I’ll grant that they’re two different situations, but what it comes right down to in both cases is a matter of team leadership.

An advantage the Chiefs, at least, will have is that the Marlins players being stupid looks to have wrecked their own season. I think with the coaches and player-leadership being so strong such nonsense won’t fly with the team, in light of that. We can only hope that the other 31 take similar notice and precautions.

Things like bubbles are intended to prevent player stupidity, and they’re far from perfect. Players have to buy in to intelligent behavior, either way.

There’s also the issue of scheduling given that most NFL games occur on the same day and the lack of any area that has a legitimate bubble with multiple stadiums close together. They floated LA since there’s 6 stadiums here, but those six stadiums are located within a larger 60 mile radius.

And given that the NFL has many lineman that are big guys, there’s actually a slightly real mortality risk in a way there generally isn’t for basketball or baseball.

And I’m still not sanguine about the do-ability of playing two games per field every week. The set routine’s scheduled around one game per stadium per week, and the pre- and post-game schedule reflects that. They would have to basically be noon and night, which screws with TV scheduling.

This is related to logistics, because there’s also the added load of getting everything moved out and the facilities sanitized between games. Those are not trivial matters, especially the latter. Do you do it fast or do it right?

Easy to brush aside that sort of shit when you don’t know all the operations involved and so simply brush them aside because of your belief that it’s totally do-able, the league could find a way, but that’s mental laziness. Rationalizing from ignorance goes nowhere.
