Chiefs news for Sept 13, 2022

Jump to Tweets | Jump to comments

Good morning, AG!

Today in Chiefs history, Trent McDuffie was born in 2000. Hopefully, his hamstring is better for his birthday. In other news, McDuffie shares his birthday with American singer, songwriter, and mandolin player Bill Monroe, considered the father of bluegrass music. And in 1848 American railroad foreman Phineas Gage suffered a traumatic brain injury when an iron rod shot through his skull and obliterated the greater part of the left frontal lobe of his brain; he survived with apparently no lasting physical damage (my Dad was a Railroad man, so I had actually heard of this guy)

Snyder needs to be SO far gone … the NFL talks the talk but refuses to walk the walk, and honestly I think both D Snyder and D Watson should be 1) in prison, and 2) barred from the league

Broncos fans will need to come to a couple of realizations at some point.

First, Russell Wilson is not Peyton Manning. Manning made crappy olines look good. Wilson makes average olines look bad. The donkeys oline is at best average.

Second, it’s hard to maintain an elite defense. I don’t really think they were elite last year and I expect them to regress at least some this year.

I do think they are better this year but not playing in the preseason and coming out flat against a team that is going to struggle to win 4 games is a bad look. In a really tough AFC they will be lucky to get wc berth. Going forward they lost a lot of draft capital, they having guys at premium positions coming up for new contracts such as Chubb. Things could unravel quickly. Let’s hope so.

Wilson ain’t Manning, that’s for sure … last night part of it was “getting in rhythm” etc etc and can’t put everything on Wilson

the new HC and his asinine decisions were the biggest factor in the Donkeys losing last night (no doubt most Denver fans are wishing they’d had Fangio back instead)

There was discussion about how terrible Soldier Field was, and how it could cause injuries, but then we go to “state of the art” in Arizona and end up with 2 guys out because their turf falls apart on impact. How does an NFL franchise not take care of that?

It wasn’t even dramatic fashion. It was a dumbfounding, perplexing, baffling, clown show of idiotic coaching decisions.

I don’t know how a son of a coach, who has been around football his whole life, can’t handle situations a person that casually plays Madden can figure out.

If anyone bitches about Andy’s game management skills again, just remind them of how bad this guy is.

I could somewhat get it if they were playing the chiefs or somebody with a good offense. But you call 2 plays on 3rd down. If you don’t convert, you have 3 timeouts and the likelihood of the seagulls getting a first down had to be about 1 1/2%. They sucked in the 2nd half.

How long does it take to get back into fg range? 13 seconds?

Ah geez, Nova, it wasn’t a request so much as an observation on priorities – some folks put makeup on before their morning coffee, others are content looking dishevelled over their first cuppa. I don’t want to rock the boat over this, yet I see that vvet818 has taken this issue as an opportunity for some sightly creativity.
