Patrick Mahomes designing plays for Chiefs during extended break |

“You have to stay on top of things like that,” Mahomes said. “Another thing that I did that drove the coaches crazy is that I drew up like 25 plays. I was just in there drawing up plays forever and hopefully I can get a few of them in and we can get a few touchdowns in the postseason.”

“It’s huge. Having the two weeks, you can kind of mentally take off that first week. … We still practice. It’s not like a regular bye in the season when you’re kind of taking days off and not doing anything. We’re still practicing and even practicing pretty fast, faster probably than normal. Physically, we’ll be fine. It’s having that mental break that will really rejuvenate everybody, keep everybody ready to go, ready to be at work every single day and be the best possible player they can be for the team.”

Report: Chiefs strength and conditioning coach tests positive for COVID-19 | PFT

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that strength and conditioning coach Barry Rubin had the positive test. As in all cases of positive tests, contact tracing is underway and anyone deemed to be a high-risk close contact will have to isolate away from the team for five days.

The Chiefs are due back in their facility Thursday, although any plans for this week will obviously be contingent on whether Rubin’s case is an isolated one or not. Given the incubation time of the virus, the next few days of results will give indication of that.

Kelce said he used some of the money to purchase a Rolex and upgrade his shoe collection: “I’m a big sneaker fan and the Marty McFlys—the Back to the Future—the Nike Air Mags were the first purchase of kicks that I got.”

Every time I think that my life has gone irrevocably off the rails, I always take solace in the fact that at least I’m not a Broncos fan.

The Texans just finished one round of trying to imitate the Patriots with BOB. Ownership has obviously learned nothing from the experience.
