Do the Denver Broncos finally have a solution to their Travis Kelce problem? | espn

https://www.espn.com/blog/afcwest/post/_/id/88115/do-the-denver-broncos-finally-have-a-solution-to-their-travis-kelce-problem

But more often than not it’s been Kelce who has cratered the Broncos’ defensive game plan in the most pivotal moments. And the Broncos’ challenge Sunday night in Arrowhead Stadium (8:20 p.m. ET, NBC) will be to change that narrative without then letting everything else the Chiefs can do be the difference.

Kansas City Chiefs hope to use Clyde Edwards-Helaire as a receiver, not just a runner | espn

https://www.espn.com/blog/afcwest/post/_/id/88110/kansas-city-chiefs-hope-to-use-clyde-edwards-helaire-as-a-receiver-not-just-a-runner

He wasn’t much of a factor as a receiver, catching two passes for 13 yards. But the possibilities for Edwards-Helaire as a receiver are what intrigued quarterback Patrick Mahomes after the game.

Chiefs DE Frank Clark credits coaches, training staff for his improved play | yahoo

https://sports.yahoo.com/chiefs-frank-clark-credits-coaches-155250306.html

[I’m] just getting back healthy and taking advantage of every opportunity,” Clark said. “My coaches are putting me in the right position to win and putting us all in the right position to win and be successful. I said that a few weeks ago too—as a player you want to be put in the right position to win and have your coach coach his ass off and get you in the right mindset to go out there and do your job, and as a coach, it’s your job to do that for your player. I believe that everything came full circle and it just got back on the right track

Chiefs HC Andy Reid provides updates on injured players on Friday | yahoo

https://sports.yahoo.com/chiefs-hc-andy-reid-provides-193552158.html

Speaking to reporters on Friday, Reid ruled out a pair of players prior to the team releasing their official injury report. Both RT Lucas Niang and CB Rashad Fenton didn’t participate in practice on Friday and won’t play against the Broncos in Week 13.

Chiefs DC Steve Spagnuolo explains why he likes physical CBs for his scheme | yahoo

https://sports.yahoo.com/chiefs-dc-steve-spagnuolo-explains-204553677.html

”Yeah, you’re a complete corner when you do that, in my opinion,” Spagnuolo said of his defensive backs tackling. “I tend to lean toward those guys. I think that makes us better. Now, you don’t take that at the expense of the skills that you need to cover, and we have a couple guys that have that combination. [Charvarius] Ward does that. He’s physical. He can cover. L’Jarius [Sneed] does it. [Rashad] Fenton’s done it for us. You’re right last year with [Bashaud] Breeland. We tend to lean toward those kinds of guys. I think those guys know that about this system and how I would like them to play. I think it makes us better.”

Chiefs offensive lineman Kyle Long happy he stuck with football despite setback | kshb

https://www.kshb.com/sports/chiefs-offensive-lineman-kyle-long-happy-he-stuck-with-football-despite-setback

“He’s so positive on things. That type of injury, there are not a lot of guys that come back from that in the same year, and he’s powered through this thing and put himself in a position where he can do that and play,” head coach Andy Reid said. “So, I think it’s a tribute to him and his work ethic.”

tossing this in because it’s an important historical story … HISTORY, as in shit that actually happened … and needs to be understood by “modern man” that yes, it DID happen and yes, some of “our ancestors” were not nice people

it’s the kind of thing that some will say is “Critical Race Theory” and some will be offended and say “you’re trying to make me look guilty of this” … well, I think we ALL know that anyone alive TODAY wasn’t alive back THEN, ergo that CAN’T be any “personal responsibility” … rather, the simple fact that “White Man’s Culture” in America hasn’t always been for the best of reasons, etc

History also lives in the present, we make it as we do and speak. I have no guilt in connection with the atrocities committed at residential schools up here but I do have a responsibility to learn it so I can be an informed participant in current dialogue and action.

I laugh when people complain that teaching CRT is trying to rewrite history & is racist because it tells of the rather nasty things that happened to minorities and who inflicted these things. White culture has not always been rainbows and Unicorns for others. White folks did some pretty damn horrible stuff in the past, both in this country and around the world. However, they are not alone in how poorly they treated those different to them. You can easily find stories of Africans selling others into slavery, Japanese badly mistreating Chinese, etc. None of these teachings cause an uproar. Only when we start to teach about White culture and its bad ways do we get the whining. Why? Why is it ok to learn of how badly others treated others but not to learn how badly Whites in this country did? Because if kids know how badly their ancestors treated others and how this country was built on that mistreatment, they just might think differently about that past and not see it as the glorious struggle is it usually portrayed as, and that that past just might have something to do with how things are today.

Whites also did some pretty honorable things too. Freeing the slaves comes to mind. Saving lives. Helping others. Jonas Salk who made the polio vaccine was white. Clara Barton who founded the Red Cross was white. But today, people only want to say everything negative about whites they possibly can.

Anyway, it’s not like there really was a single “white” culture. In the early 20th century, there were a bunch of different cultures that had whites in them. Germans were not English who were not Slavs who were not Italians who were not the Irish. And there were some non-whites who still came from these cultures and identified more with them. So to speak of “white culture” is terribly misinformed (and perhaps racist itself).

Also, it’s not like anyone can dare say anything negative about “non-white culture” (if there is such a thing) or you’re called racist. It’s a double standard.

If it’s fair to focus all your attention on the awful evils of one culture, it should also be fair game for all the others. If it’s fair to look down upon an entire ethnicity because of the actions of a few from history, the no culture can escape blame and All are equally suspect of wrongdoing.

Humans have always been shit-heads to all other living things, including other humans. That’s how the species survived without giant claws and teeth. I think our species is struggling to get to where we can actually call ourselves civilized. We have a ways to go yet. This goes for everyone, in my opinion. I don’t see Homo sapiens evolving into a nicer species any time soon, unfortunately for all of Earth.

I guess you missed the part about Africans selling Africans, or Japanese horribly mistreating Chinese. These are facts, historical events that can’t be denied. Much like White people owning slaves in this country, and all cultures having slaves somewhere in their past. And as for them freeing slaves, doing what the rest of the civilized world did many years earlier and only after being forced to isn’t a huge accomplishment.
Sorry if teaching history as it happened bothers you. I promise they still talk about Clara in hushed tones around here.

You are conflating teaching history to CRT. The two are not the same. Did colonists kill Indians, why yes they did. Did Indians kill Colonists, why yes they did. The cruelty of both cultures were a reflection of the other. We learned all this in school back in the 60s. When cultures clash there is conflict and the more technically advanced culture will defeat and subsume the other. Teaching history through the lens of CRT is racist claptrap. Indians thought Colonists would do what other tribes would do when defeated…..move. The colonists response was total war until subjugation or the Indians moved. As a Virginian you should know about things like the 3 Powatan wars fought in and around Jamestown. The Virginia massacre of 1622 where 300+ colonists, mostly men, were murdered by Powatan house quest and the enslavement of women and children was just the beginning of one of those wars. The colonists would answer and then some years later poison the Powatan leaders to start the second war. The 3rd war was started by the Powatan with over 500 colonists killed. This was all taught in the 60s.

What makes you think I don’t? I heard about it over and over and over. Heck, I wasn’t even living here in my Elementary School years, and I heard about it repeatedly. All the Colonists wanted to do was take their land, hunt their game, and move them out. And what did they do? Got mad! Were we taught that maybe, just maybe, the actions of the Colonists to come where they were not wanted triggered events? Not so much. I heard about Little Big Horn, too. Wasn’t it awful what those Indians did to Gen Custer? You know what I never heard about? The Tulsa Massacre. You know what was practically ignored? The Trail of Tears. What seems to bother you is that attention is finally being shown to BOTH sides of events & no longer focusing on one side of it.

I was taught about both sides of Tulsa and Rosewood, Japanese internment, Trail of Tears…I was taught Jackson was wrong to force Trail of Tears….but to blame the Indian Wars on the Colonists is wrong….there was going to be conflict and Native Americans specifically were brutal in treatments of their enemies. The Indian mistake is that they always came to the conclusion that the Colonists or whites would react like Indians and move away when pressured….and they didn’t. You claim it’s always been one sided…not true…what you want is everything to be examined through the lens of racism in lieu of complicated situations due to culture clash. I thought we got away from the concept of blood libel a long time ago, yet in your case I see we haven’t.

Andrew Wylie, in the past four years with the Chiefs, has started in 37 games and played in 48. He’s no pro-bowler, at least not yet, but a team needs these kinds of players on their roster… Oh, did you say Remmers will be starting on Sunday?

Denver has a great defense and our offense hasn’t quite found its groove this year. I would love it if Andy came out with a power run game and forced the Broncs to get out of 2 deep safety shells. Or nickel – they run a lot of nickel.

I read your story late last night about the frigid faider game. I was at that game. We had faider friends I offered to ride with us to share the cost and I already had parking. He wanted to know where I sat. The F’r found seats right behind me! All the way up they were on their phones and enjoying “Faider Nation” crap and I just kept smiling. After we got to KC and ate my 1 friend was freezing. So I lent him some warm gear. Chiefs red! LOL. It was covered up but…we knew. So as the game ebbed and flowed they had good moments. But as the tide was turning and the punter kicked to Tyreek (who in their right mind does that?) ‘Reek took it to the house. I looked back and my friend was slumped down in his seat in despair as the realization his team just got Arrowheaded yet again. On the way home? Cricket. That’s all I heard. My smile illuminating my way through the night on the way home.
