Chiefs Could Pair Former 4th Overall Pick With Isiah Pacheco, Says Analyst | Heavy

“Isiah Pacheco played well last year, but the Kansas City Chiefs could use a more proven commodity for the backfield,” Latham wrote on March 1. “It’s no secret that the team is looking for a free agent that is better between the tackles, and Leonard Fournette has a three-down skillset tailor-made for this offense. Andy Reid prefers to use a workhorse running back, but he hasn’t had a player capable of handling that volume since the Kareem Hunt days. Fournette isn’t the player he used to be, but he can still make an impact as both a runner and a receiver.”

I would hope that the team one day will go to someone who is more interested in it. Clark was hanging around his pops and working and learning constantly.

Gracie is wonderful and all but she seems to care more about being at the beach than running an NFL team.

And her surname is “Chamoun,” implying Middle Eastern (possibly Lebanese) origins, as “Chamoun” is the Levantine pronunciation of “شِمْعُون šamʿūn” or the Arabic equivalent of “Simeon.”

See also Hebrew “שִׁמְעוֹן‎ Šīmʾōn,” which is the equivalent of “Simeon” (or in some cases “Shimon”) and comes from the root word (which in Hebrew I believe is “שְׁמַע Šəmaʿ“) meaning “to hear”.

Wikipedia found a slalom skier from Lebanon with the name “Jackie Chamoun” who appears to have never been in the US for any notable stretch of time nor competed in football (international or otherwise), so I don’t think it’s her either.

Might be the same person, as Jackie Chamoun would have been 19 in 2010.

Likewise, but I wonder how much of that is the Chiefs fans’ collective blocking out of the 2008-2012 seasons… man, those were some rough years to be a Chiefs fan.
