Good morning AG! Lets see what’s happening!

NFL Power Rankings, Week 13: Bengals rocket into top 10, while Cowboys tumble out of top five | nfl.com

https://www.nfl.com/news/nfl-power-rankings-week-13-2021-nfl-season

Led by Chris Jones, the Chiefs piled up five sacks in their Week 11 win over Cowboys. It was a nice change of pace for the Kansas City defense, which entered the day with just 14 sacks in its first 10 games. Jones is the unquestioned star of the unit, but Steve Spagnuolo now has a collection of seasoned pass rushers to do his bidding. In Jones, Jarran ReedMelvin Ingram and Frank Clark, the Chiefs now deploy four players in their front seven who have registered a 10-sack season in their careers. If they can continue to cook up pressure on the quarterback, good things will continue to happen.

Getting after Mahomes is key’ according to Broncos’ Chubb | whatsyourremedykc

Looking ahead to Sunday night, coach Vic Fangio hopes that No. 55 “makes big strides this week” in order to help slow Kansas City’s explosive offense. Chubb’s last sack came a year ago Monday, in Denver’s 31-3 loss to New Orleans at Empower Field. He knows Denver’s defense needs to make life tough on Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Andy Reid on post-bye success: I don’t know if there’s any secret there | nbcsports

“Oh, I get asked that every year,” Reid said. “I’m not sure what it is. We go back and we try to redo everything and make better corrections, but I don’t know if there’s any secret there. I think everybody kind of does that.”

Chiefs activate WR Marcus Kemp from Reserve/COVID-19 list | yahoo

https://www.yahoo.com/sports/chiefs-activate-wr-marcus-kemp-230528316.html

According to the NFL’s official personnel notice, the Chiefs have activated WR Marcus Kemp to the 53-man roster from the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Kemp was placed on the list back on November 18th ahead of the Chiefs’ tilt with the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11. The team elevated WR Daurice Fountain from the practice squad to replace Kemp during that game, primarily serving as a gunner on the special teams unit.

Chiefs remain in top 5 of USA TODAY’s power rankings after bye week | usatoday

The next three games can certainly make or break the Chiefs’ season, with all of them coming against division foes. The good news about that: Kansas City is 32-6 against AFC West opponents dating back to 2015, which is the last time the Broncos defeated the Chiefs.

One thing we learned about each NFL team in Week 12 of 2021 season: Packers could be the new NFC favorites cbssports

https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/one-thing-we-learned-about-each-nfl-team-in-week-12-of-2021-season-packers-could-be-the-new-nfc-favorites/

The West is theirs if they want it. Vegas is seemingly back alive, as is Denver, but the fact all three teams below them in the division are 6-5 right now suggests Kansas City is decently positioned atop a crowded field

Andy Reid comments on Travis Kelce’s role as a leader in Chiefs’ locker room | usatoday

“Travis [Kelce] keeps growing,” Reid said. “He’s a player, leader, person. He always works on his game. He kind of pushed through the tough time and showed consistency during that time there earlier in the season but kept leading. Eric Bieniemy put together a tape actually for the offense that showed Kelce’s leadership for the young guys. Also, when something wasn’t going right, he’d go up to players and say something to them in a positive way and get them going. So, he’s really taken that role seriously and that’s fun to see.”

Tyreek Hill Accepts Usain Bolt’s Wager: ‘It’s Getting Kinda Personal | heavy

“He was talking ‘blah blah blah,’” Bolt told McAfee, “but then I went to the combine one year and if you go on the net right now, I ran 4.22 in my sweats and some street shoes. I was like, ‘come on Tyreek Hill, you got no chance man, none whatsoever.’”

Chiefs activate OL Kyle Long to 53-man roster from Reserve/PUP list | usatoday

So what’s next for Long and the Chiefs? At the time of his injury, Long was the starting right guard for the team. That position is currently locked down by rookie Trey Smith, so it’s unlikely that he resumes a starting role at that position. It’s possible that Kansas City gives Long a look at the right tackle spot, but with the bye week, Lucas Niang could be healthy enough to resume his role as a starter.

GREAT QUOTE from an unlikely source – Broncos’ fan writer Sayre Bedinger:

“Since the middle of the 2015 season, Dontari Poe has more passing touchdowns than the Broncos do wins against the Chiefs.”

I have always preferred live music to studio recorded versions….it shows the talent of the musicians. 35 years ago this was on every stations play list…it’s also classic on how you can take a +3 minute pop song and make it something more. The performance also shows how Floyd and David Gilmore influenced them.

Allegedly these are the last photos of Saturn, taken by the probe Cassini before its demise.

More fascinating, the Huygens probe is the only object to land on a celestial body beyond the asteroid belt, having landed on Saturn’s largest moon Titan.

With Kemp reactivated, who did we bump from the active roster? Fountain again?

Fingers crossed that it’s Niemann…

Re Otis Anderson Jr: that’s a sad event all round. I checked some news stories to see if the father is indeed the Cardinals & Giants RB from days gone by but didn’t find confirmation of this. Anyone know about that?

Not the same. Article says the shooter was 52 years old, Otis Anderson from Cardinals and Giants is 64.

Thanks, it’s still a very sad happening. I was a fan of Anderson’s and was happy to see him win a SB with the Giants. But the fact that it wasn’t him is no relief for the tragedy that occurred.

I think the Giants/Cardinals RB spells his name “Ottis” too but I could be mistaken. I seem to recall reading that in a book somewhere in the bygone days of my youth…

You must have been quite far north – Manitoba or Ontario? If you’re in Indiana then you’re no stranger to the cold. They say the prairie winds and snows can be bad. They also say of the prairies that you can see your dog running away for three days before disappearing below the horizon.

Mrs & me drove through WR on our way to Thunder Bay in October, and that’s still south of BRaG haha. As for songbirds, that’s weird, Ida thought they’d be around.

BTW, Hoosier, I made a comment re the Winchester signing and the Sunday night flexing stories the other night. I did intend a critique of the “Breaking News” application there, BRaG was right in that, but no put down intended at all. AG staffers do a lot of work and it’s up to the rest of us to fill in the blanks.
