How ‘lab-grown’ meat could help the planet and our health
CNN — What if there was a way to eat meat without farming and killing billions of animals per year, contributing to the climate crisis and risking high cholesterol levels?
“Cultivated meat is real meat grown directly from animal cells,” Uma Valeti, founder and CEO of Upside Foods, said via email. “These products are not vegan, vegetarian or plant-based – they are real meat, made without the animal.”
“The process of making cultivated meat is similar to brewing beer, but instead of growing yeast or microbes, we grow animal cells,” Valeti added.

Progressing from lab production to making products in commercial facilities, some companies are moving away from the term “lab-grown meat,” said a spokesperson for Mosa Meat, a Netherlands-based food technology company. Instead, these companies refer to it as cultivated meat, cultured meat, cell-based or cell-grown meat, or non-slaughter meat

The industry is about 10 years old, so cultivated meat is still a few years away from being commercially available to US consumers in grocery stores or restaurants – and maybe up to 20 years more for it to replace a substantial portion, or all, of the traditional meat industry, Kaplan said. At this time, Singapore is the only country to have approved cell-based meat for consumer consumption.
Until then, cultivated meat and its potential benefits for animal, human and environmental health are more hope than promise.

I’d like to see the Chiefs trade up in the draft and snag a good DE/DT. Here’s a good one;

Tyree Wilson, 6-6/275

Defensive End/Defensive Tackle

Texas Tech

Strengths: Very long
Uses length to keep offensive tackles away from him
Excellent combination of height, weight, length and speed
Dangerous pass rusher
Quick around the corner
Active hands
Uses hands and feet at same time
Enough quickness to beat tackles

Strong bull rush
Quick get off
Can beat tackles with speed or power
Has the strength to shed blocks
Strong to get off blocks
Shows some ability to redirect
Fast in pursuit
Closing speed
Reel burst to close
Solid run defender
Can hold his ground at the point of attack
Gives a second effort to get sacks
Has upside
Versatile to play a variety of techniques

As a pass rusher, Wilson is a dangerous edge defender, and gives offensive tackles a lot of problems. The biggest strength that Wilson has is his length. With his long arms and wingspan, Wilson is superb at keeping offensive tackles away from his body, and they have a hard time getting into his chest to lock him up. With that space, Wilson uses his speed to get upfield, and he has the strength to break free from blocks. Wilson is not crazy fast off the edge, but he is quick and has good closing speed alongside a burst to eat up ground when he gets free.

In the NFL, Wilson has the size to play end on base downs and move inside to rush over guards in the sub package. He shows the versatility to rush over offensive tackles, whether standing up or putting his hand in the ground. Thus, he could fit in a 3-4 or 4-3 defense.

Sports Illustrated

Bryce Young draws bold Patrick Mahomes comparison from ESPN’s Todd McShay

Pete Prisco

I like Bryce Young’s tape, but can we please stop the Mahomes comparisons. That arm isn’t close.

Throws a nice catchable ball, but please stop.

Chiefs snap counts: Willie Gay Jr.’s Super Bowl snaps most since Week 2

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster led Chiefs receivers in offensive snaps when he practically couldn’t walk after the AFC Championship Game due to his knee injury.
  • Jerick McKinnon and Isiah Pacheco had a near-even split of snaps.
  • Noah Gray saw more offensive snaps than Justin Watson, Skyy Moore and Kadarius Toney.

Willie Gay Jr. played the most defensive snaps he’d played in a single game since Week 2 of the 2022 NFL season.
