just to say it …

the Chiefs have a pretty loaded WR unit already with Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Kadarius Toney, Skyy Moore, Justin Watson and Rashee Rice … not counting Ross and Ross, Ritchie James or Kelce and Fortson (the TE/WR group) and Noah Gray (the TE/FB group)

that’s 11 more than capable guys for Mahomes to connect with (did we mention McKinnon and Pacheco can catch the ball as well?)

with all those guys (and others on the current roster, most of them an ST’s if they manage to make the team) the Chiefs have ZERO need for for an aged, injury prone diva WR like Hopkins (who’s sure to want more than the Chiefs have in cap space) … and there’s only ONE football for Mahomes to throw around at any given time (although I have no doubt he could throw two ball to two different players on almost any given play, if the league would allow it)

moreover, a guy like Hopkins coming in would limit playing time for SOMEONE in the WR group, someone who needs the reps, someone who needs more time on the field to develop his skills and his connection with Mahomes, and that would do nothing but hurt the team down the road

with #95 needing to be extended, there’s precious little “wiggle room” for BV on the cap, and it’s always a good idea to keep some “in reserve” just in case the team is able to land a part-time “bargain bin” contributor after cut-downs or anytime during the season

as of right now, we ARE all we need (my 2 cents, adjusted for inflation)

All we are
All we are, we are
We are all, all we need, sing
(All we are)
(All we are, we are)
(We are all, all we need)

DORO!

I don’t see that as a guarantee. I want to see another SB win as much as the next person, I trust Veach and the coaches to get there so if they sign DHop then okay. We’ll see…

I agree that you have to look at the upside of signing him as well.

  1. Increase depth. Injuries happen, unfortunately.
  2. Increase talent. He’s clearly a special WR. The more the better!
  3. Not signed by one of our competitors.

Will Ferrell to Star as John Madden in Movie Based on Legend’s Life, Video Game | Bleacher Report

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/10077411-will-ferrell-to-star-as-john-madden-in-movie-based-on-legends-life-video-game?utm_source=cnn.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=editorial

A staple on NFL and college football sidelines as a fan, Will Ferrell will now take his football acumen to the big screen as he’s set to star as legendary coach John Madden in a biopic based on the Hall of Famer, according to Matt Grobar of Deadline.

The film, titled Madden, will be produced by Amazon and MGM studios and directed by five-time Academy Award nominee David O’Russell.

Madden will be a Prime Video Sports Original and is the latest addition to the ever-growing genre of sports biopic films. It will try to follow in the steps of recent successes such as Air, King Richard, 42, Moneyball and Rush.

Great job Zulu, thanks. Maybe we should call it Zulu’s Huddle when you do it. And also, thanks to all of you guys that keep this place up and running. Steve said it perfectly last night.

Money may be the tricky part, if the team is trying to land D-Hop, but we have a GM who was able to turn $112 total cap dollars into signings/extensions. If that’s Veach’s guy, I feel like he’d make it work.
