Bold Prediction: Kansas City Chiefs will go 19-0 in 2020 season | KCKingdom

There isn’t a single game on that gauntlet of a schedule that the Chiefs can’t vanquish. The Chiefs will tour the AFC East, NFC South and face two of the best AFC teams in the Texans and Ravens, but let’s start with the AFC East.

Patrick Mahomes tops all players on CBS Sports’ Top 25 Under 25 | AA

Mahomes might not ever throw for 5,00 yards and 50 touchdowns again, but he’s still getting better. That’s what so scary; at the age of 24, after only two fill seasons as a starting quarterback, he’s the best player in football and he’s only getting going. It might be early, but Mahomes has a chance to become the best quarterback in NFL history.

Andy Reid weighs in on Chiefs potentially playing without fans in 2020 | ChiefsWire

“First of all, we love our fans,” Reid said. “They are the loudest in the world. It’s ridiculous how loud it gets for our opponents. But on the other hand, we’ll still go play and it’ll be kind of that way. There will probably be a lot more talk from the players that you can here. You know, those guys get pretty creative out there in their conversations. But the fans, we’ll miss them if that’s where it goes, but we’ll still be able to function.”

Newly proposed injured reserve rules would have benefited Chiefs in 2019 | ChiefsWire

Under the newly proposed changes, the Chiefs would have been able to put Henne on the injured reserve list right away with no penalty. Also if Speaks, Lovett and Davis were deemed healthy at any point during the 2019 season, they would now be among the players eligible to return from IR.

Chiefs DC Steve Spagnuolo Impressed By Versatility Of Rookie DB L’Jarius Sneed |

“I was very impressed with his tape with regards to all of the things that he did,” Spagnuolo said about the incoming rookie. “He played corner and he’s a big corner, he played some nickel, he covered the slot receivers and they actually played him at safety. I thought he did really good at all of them.”

1. Patrick Mahomes 78.8
2. Drew Brees 75.6

I agree with Andy Reid. I don’t like the proposed rule. Sure, it favors us right now, but it’s not good for football. On-side kicks were the most exciting play in football. That’s basically been nullified by not allowing the kicking team to be in motion or to stack one side of the field but, and hear me out, what if the rule was changed back to allow the kicking team to be in motion, but for onside kicks only? The injury risk is low due to the infrequency of the play and it preserves the integrity of the game.

Historically, 3rd and 15 is converted just about the same (slightly less) as the old onside kick rule, so I’m not sure how it would affect the integrity of the game.

Yes, the better offenses would have an advantage, just like the better special teams for onside kicks. But those better offenses already have an advantage the rest of the game, and are less likely to use it.

Like the old PAT, the onside kick has become a boring, predictable play. I would love to see this.

The integrity of the game has nothing to do with the outcome and everything to do with the methodology. But whilst I agree the outcome has become boring and predictable under the new rules which were instituted for safety whilst kicking away, I think the solution is to essentially return to the old rules for onside kicks rather than losing what was formerly the most exciting play under those old rules.

Once a rule is changed for safety, it’s pretty much a certainty that it will never be changed back. The optics of that would be horrible for the league.

So we have to decide what would be the best practical solution moving forward. Changing back to the old rule is not practical.

Disagree on the optics. Tell the truth. It was changed to make kickoffs safer but had the unintended consequence of ruining onside kicks. Hence the further modification.

The current optics are terrible because it acknowledges they changed the rule without thinking through everything and now are doubling down on a poor decision.

Disagree. You never know which way that stupid ball will bounce. That’s what makes it exciting.

It was exciting when it actually had a decent chance of working.

Mahomes wears number 15, so if this onside rule passes I will call it 4th & Mahomes.

More importantly remember true meaning of:

Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.

November 11 is for all veterans. This one is for the fallen.

Partially true. People often get single focused on our fallen soldiers (who absolutely deserve our remembrance on Memorial Day), but Memorial Day is to remember ALL who have passed in our lives.
