Good morning AG!

, Today in Chiefs history, Abner Haynes was born 1937, Dino Mangiero in 1958,and Ryan Succop 1986. Dino, as I’m sure you remember, played DL for us. Currently, he’s a coach. https://www.miamiarch.org/CatholicDiocese.php?op=Article_archdiocese-of-miami-new-football-coach-at-archbishop-mccarthy-high .

Elsewhere, In 1519, Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan departed from Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Spain, on a quest to circumnavigate the globe, or so he told his wife. It was later discovered that the real reason was to find a country he hadn’t previously been thrown out of.

Now, some stuff we didn’t make up

I’ve tried several times to see if I can verify something I remember about Dino Mangiero. I’m pretty sure that Dino made the hit on Dan Pastorini when he was the Raiders QB and broke his leg. That resulted in the Raiders bringing Jim Plunkett off the bench, and him leading them to a Super Bowl win.
A couple of seasons later, Al Davis falls in love with Marc Wilson, and he benches Plunkett. Once again Dino goes in and injures Marc Wilson. In comes Plunkett and leads the Raiders to another Super Bowl win.
I’ve tried to check the info on those games, but the tackle and assist info was not available. I’m pretty sure I’m correct that Dino broke Pastorini’s leg, but I’m less certain about the injury to Wilson.
So I’ve always held that Dino Mangiero should be in the Raiders HOF for correcting Al’s QB issues and effectively winning them two Super Bowls.

Did anyone see the bit with Eli Manning getting made up and trying out for QB at penn state? I saw some clips, but it looked like it may have been entertaining.

I just read it, a good summary, thanks.
The biggest take I saw was that it’s on Spags to design a replacement by committee. The pieces are there: Elijah Lee, Darius Harris, along with rookies Chenal, Cochrane and Cook. (Any others?) No one player can replace Willie, so let’s see what Spags and staff come up with. The wildcard is that Veach might pull something out of his hat but I don’t know what and I think you gotta go with the guys you have.

Does any team employ a 5-2 rather than the 4-3 or 3-4 front 7 D alignment? Is that even viable in today’s NFL? Just thinking out loud, I’m a X’s and O’s layman so I’m curious to read what others might say. (I’m betting Seth aka Chief in the North will have a piece out soon on substituting for WG.)

a 5-2 Defensive Front? interesting, never head of it being done ALTHOUGH Dunlap is considered to be a DE/LB hybrid (I think maybe?) so having him as LB 3 kinda sorta almost maybe makes it a 5-2?

all that said, most go with extra DB’s as it’s a “passing league” … then too, McDuffie’s out for awhile, so that puts a damper on THAT

“next man up” is all that can be done …

Geaux Chiefs

The Bucs just added Cole Beasley…so they became slightly less likely…but then again, Brady.

I just heard that was well.
yes, maybe OBJ will sign bucs.

so that leaves…..
bills or rams – OBJ loves Von Miller, that’s why OBJ went to rams, last year.

story TBD hahaaaa

I posted this on last night game thread.
.
some female sent a tweet to a Major NFL talking head claiming she saw the video. And I quote her: “it was aggressive as f*ck – it involved his GF and small child – but keep on believing the vacuum story”.
.
Reason why I didn’t post her tweet, she didn’t provide the video.
.
on a side note: Willie is not appealing the (4) games = guilty

The fact that there might be a video multiplies games to be suspended by 4.

NFL cares about image not actual player behavior. Incident where nobody was hurt and no charges filed (think Kareem Hunt) is not a big deal UNTIL tmz releases the video.

NFL doesn’t care what you do as long as you don’t get caught.
