Morning Huddle – The Chiefs Would Have Won That Game

Chiefs ban fan who pointed laser at Tom Brady, per report | USA Today

The Kansas City Chiefs have identified and banned the fan who pointed a laser at New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in late January’s AFC Championship Game, according to ESPN. 

Kansas City Chiefs: The ugly situation with Eric Berry | KC Kingdom

What has become so frustrating is that the Chiefs allowed Berry to dictate how his 2018 season was going to play out when he clearly needed to clean up the heel with surgery. The Chiefs were the number one seed in the AFC basically without him at all this season and he should’ve been placed on injured reserve and had the operation done.
If there is a scenario where Berry isn’t fully ready for the start of the 2019 season, I can almost guarantee the fan base will be ready to be done with him.

Tony Gonzalez downplays his Chiefs run, says Falcons made his career | USA Today

“You know what … Falcons, honestly, they made my career to come here. It really did. Nothing against Kansas City. I was there 12 years. But only three playoff games. But when I got to Atlanta, it was like all of the sudden you’re part of this winning organization. We’re on TV every week now, doing Monday Night Football, Sunday Night Football games. I love it here. I love being back here.”

Rematches of Rams-Saints, Patriots-Chiefs among contenders for 2019 season opener | ESPN

If the Rams win the Super Bowl, they could host the Saints in the 2019 Kickoff game, a league source told ESPN. And if the Patriots win on Sunday, they could host the Chiefs in the opener, according to the source.

I said, “similar.” I meant it as a subtle, polite slight. Like when someone says, “Bless your heart”, but they really mean, “Fuck you.”

It’s similar to how I never capitalize the names of our AFCW rivals, refer to the donkeys’ home as enver, or mention the name of the city the rams left STL for in the context of football. It’d be a more effective return slight if it caught on fan base-wide.

Lets just call a spade a spade. Tony is the same dude he’s always been. A me-first California pretty boy. Always has been. He’s always been wanting to get in front of the camera. Gonzalez holding on a scoring play in the RZ so he could get a TD catch has been a running joke I used to have with my dad. Honestly, if he would just be true to himself instead of BSing everyone it would be better. Hell, the man doesn’t even like BBQ. He’s a vegetarian* for God’s sake!
*nothing inherently wrong with vegetarians, BTW.

With that said, I get what he’s saying. He had 1 losing season of Marty, 2 ~.500 with Gunther, 5 up-and-down seasons with Vermeil, and 3 shit-tastic seasons with Herm. All the while sparing with renown a-hole Carl Peterson. Scott Pioli rolls into town with his no-candy-wrapper-nonsense and hardass wannabe Todd Haley with talks of rebuilding. Screw that. He wants to go chase a ring, fine. 4 straight winning seasons until his last, he had his shot and muffed it.

3 playoff appearances with both the Chiefs and Falcons. Only 1 postseason victory to show for it. But hey, he got an upgrade to the bright lights of Atlanta instead of “backwoods” KC. Matt Ryan was infinitely more fun to catch passes from than Tyler Thigpen (even though Trent Green was his primary QB in KC).

I get it, but stop trolling the fans you douche. They love/loved you FAR more than Atlanta fans ever would. He was just a hired gun in the twilight of his career for a city that doesn’t give a damn about the NFL (CFB in Georgia). Talk all the shit on King Carl/coaches all you like. But NFL interviewing 101: say nice things about fans and Lamar Hunt. It’s not rocket science.

I interpret Tony Gonzalez statement that he was on a winning team and in prime time ganes every week with Atlanta, that helped him get his job now.

As far as playing with a winning culture with Atlanta, that might be a shot at Carl Peterson.
The rumor has it, that Tony was going to retire if he didn’t get traded. Tony did leave K.C. because we weren’t winning,, and Carl Paterson was the GM.

I don’t have enough facts to quit being a Tony Gonzalez fan.

But his recent comments and attitude have been a direct insult to Chiefs fans. Let me post a picture of the one time in my career I hurt the fans the most. Then while I’m at the event I’ll send ATL fans a heart felt message about how they are my favorite. Then he gets home checks Twitter. Sees the backlash then posts a reply to KC from his hotel room.

The Super Bowl really needed the Chiefs, it seems almost every Chiefs game was epic, not counting the bottom feeders.

When Tom Brady couldn’t step into a throw, his arm looked like Peyton Manning’s in his last year with the Broncos. Last night game made me appreciate Mahomes and how far he can throw a ball with just his arm.

Anyways, let’s sprinkle bird seed on it so they’ll shit all over it. Don’t clean it. Next time the Falcons come to town, Clark invites tg to midfield for a special announcement, but doesn’t tell him what. Maybe he thinks they are retiring his number? Play a bunch of clips and show screenshots of his FU’s to Chiefs fans on the new big screen. Then announce tg is being expelled from the ROH & Arrowhead. Red Coaters pry off the letters off with crowbars. Clark spits on tg’s shoes. Security tosses tg out United Airlines-style. KC routs Atlanta.

Goff was exposed last night. Bad decision making, run game wasn’t working, his arm looked about as strong as old man Brady’s on the other side. Two system qbs going at it. At the end of the day the veteran coach won. The chiefs better have all the chips in on defense this offseason, no way pat can’t win a ring based on how that game looked last night.

I’m honestly shocked that they have the odds for the Rams winning the SB next year that high after the turdshow they put on yesterday. I wonder if their offense doesn’t take a huge step back next year. Belichick gathered up all the game tape on how to stifle Goff, and it became very apparent he doesn’t have the skills to diagnose a defense after the snap.

Teams have the blueprint on him now.

One of the problems with treating this outcome as the product of a hypothetical conspiracy is that if the Chiefs nab the Lombardi next year, you have opened the door for others to claim that the NFL wanted that result, as well. If the entire thing is rigged, why even bother hoping for our team’s success, unless some scripted, fictional drama’s an appeal?

I don’t do WWE, and if the NFL is the same thing, why should I bother?

Besides, making that sort of conspiracy work would take more competence to less effect than it would have taken to simply manage the league competently. And if the slightest hint of proof surfaces, the league’s done. They aren’t up to a cover-up level, as that would again required more competence than simply doing things well.
