who cares? it’s a TEAM sport … I do NOT give one rat’s ass about individual player rankings (and neither should you!) … I care about the TEAM, where the Kansas City Chiefs end up, how the TEAM does

last time I checked the team was NOT the Kansas City Mahomes

about the only “individual” things I care about are … well, yes, Otis Taylor SHOULD be in the HoF (honor those who did so well in the past)

thanks for the this day in history stuff

YES!!!!
I post ALL THE TIME — Invest In Yourself
.
Chiefs RG Trey Smith had another Hall of Fame mentor at OL Masterminds.
Attending events such as the annual OL Masterminds Summit. The former Tennessee Volunteers star again attended this year’s summit with a focus on improving some key areas of his game.
.
Smith was already spotted learning from Hall of Frame OT (Willie Roaf), but he also revealed that he had another mentor while he was at this year’s event.
.
“One guy that I was leaning on a lot was (Steve Hutchinson),” said Smith.
.
.
Don’t invest in yourself = you make the same $$$, live the same life…..with same results.
***HAT TIP TO YOU – Trey Smith***
