Smokey Robinson, American soul singer-songwriter (The Miracles – “You Really Got A Hold On Me”; “Tears Of A Clown”; “My Girl”), was born in Detroit, Michigan on this date in 1940

In 1914, Four-year old Charlotte May Pierstorff was mailed by train from Grangeville, Idaho to her grandparents’ house 73 miles away in the most famous ‘child in the post’ instance.  Children were sometimes “mailed” by their parents because it was cheaper to mail them  than other ways to travel, if a child came in under the 50 pound parcel weight limit

In 1878, Thomas Edison is granted a patent for his cylinder phonograph, eventually leading to Smokey Robinson & The Miracles and others doing studio recording on vinyl records

In 1807, US Vice President Aaron Burr was arrested in Alabama for treason; he was later acquitted

Nicolaus Copernicus, the Polish mathematician and astronomer who theorized that planets revolve around the sun (Heliocentric theory), was born on this day in Toruń, Royal Prussia, Kingdom of Poland in 1473

Eagles Predicted to Sign Chiefs CB L’Jarius Sneed, Analyst Says | Sports Illustrated

https://www.si.com/nfl/eagles/news/philadelphia-eagles-free-agent-signing-ljarius-sneed-kansas-city-chiefs-rumors-free-agency

The Philadelphia Eagles defense went from being one of the NFL’s most feared units to one of the worst in a year. While part of that decline will be blamed on the hiring of Sean Desai to replace Jonathan Gannon, an aging secondary could also be pointed out.

While recent mock drafts have had the Eagles addressing the issue, a new prediction has them making a blockbuster signing in free agency.

Leo Chenal graded as PFF’s top defender in 2024 playoffs

The Kansas City Chiefs relied on their defense to win Super Bowl LVIII, and second-year linebacker Leo Chenal was a huge asset for the team in their playoff run to the big game.

Chenal cemented himself as one of the unit’s top producers in Kansas City’s matchups against the Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, and San Franciso 49ers, earning a 91.0 grade from PFF for his postseason efforts.

 

 

Chiefs Coach Andy Reid Still Helping Eagles from Afar | Sports Illustrated

https://www.si.com/nfl/eagles/news/philadelphia-eages-andy-reid-coach-kansas-city-chiefs-nick-sirianni-jeffrey-lurie

The most troubling aspect of the Philadelphia Eagles’ late-season collapse in the 2023 season was the inability to identify “the problem,” something that cost coordinators Brian Johnson and Sean Desai their jobs, along with a significant portion of the supporting coaching staff.

Shuffling names and faces on the coaching staff was the business-as-usual approach to issues in the NFL, a disappointing course correction for an organization that values its forward-thinking reputation.

 

 

Antonio Pierce Explains Hatred of the Chiefs | Sports Illustrated

https://www.si.com/nfl/raiders/news/las-vegas-raiders-the-rush-with-maxx-crosby-antonio-pierce-kansas-city-chiefs-super-bowl

It’s no secret the Las Vegas Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs do not like each other.

The two AFC West rivals often have exciting games against each other, as the Silver and Black want to bring it to the Super Bowl Champions every time they cross paths.

Raiders’ head coach Antonio Pierce has not hidden his disdain for the Chiefs. The now-permanent head man took his team into Arrowhead Stadium on Christmas Day, upsetting them 20-14.

NFL recognizes Marquez Valdes-Scantling’s remarkable 2023 redemption story

The Kansas City Chiefs entered Super Bowl LVIII as underdogs, a mistake that oddsmakers around the country aren’t likely to make twice.

While Kansas City’s fans were well aware of the Chiefs’ mettle during the playoffs, the up-and-down campaign of Marquez Valdes-Scantling had even the team’s most confident supporters scratching their heads.

A less-than-ideal start to his 2023 season left many fans questioning Valdes-Scantling’s viability as one of Kansas City’s top wide receivers.

I noticed the coaching staff DC and Special teams signed extension but nothing on the OC. Is he still under contract or is he going to be replaced?

Thuney entered the exclusive 4 time super bowl champion club this year. Onky about 35 total players can say that with over two thirds of those being from the steelers dynasty.

More proof that a dynasty today is worth 1.8 dynasties from before the salary cap
So many moving parts. Only 12 of our guys have 3 rings. When we get the 4th, my guess is a couple won’t be here for that
Kelce
Mahomes
Jones
Winchester
Nnadi
Hardman *
Bell *
Allegretti
Forston
Butker
Harris *
Reiter

Yes, of course. Thank you. Do you think Mahomes will be around for that? /s
You see how that bolsters my point? “a few”, not 23.
Some 23 guys were on all 4 Steeler teams. We’re going to have MAYBE 6? If Jones stays?

A 30 year old non qb making ~30 mill a year. Limited market for that type of player
