Thursday Night Open Thread : Good Players on Bad Teams

 215 replies

Welcome to AG’s nightly Open Thread, drop in and join a conversation, or start one yourself.

Guys who had the misfortune to play on some really stinky Chiefs teams.

Tonight: Albert Lewis

Lewis was a 3rd round pick out of Grambling State in 1983, the heart of the dark times. He played 16 years, enjoying a few of the early Marty years and winning. Apparently, he decided winning wasn’t for him and spent the last few years with the raiders (fuck them). In addition to his stellar defensive play, Lewis was a ST’s standout, blocking 11 kicks in his 11 seasons with us. Not too bad.

The NFL doing NFL things. Albert Lewis higlights

Dynamic Duos | Kevin Ross and Albert Lewis | alleyesDBcamp.com

We take a trip back in time to Kansas City to reminisce on a pair of cornerbacks that were the cornerstone of a defense that was very tough on opposing quarterbacks.

07/14/2022 9:25 pm

We’ve never kept dogs as pets, as Mrs BRAG’s allergic, but there’s more to it than that. Dogs require structure in their lives, and given my psych problems, I literally can’t provide one with it. That said, I like dogs, and they generally respond to me well, so I think it’s fair to say I refrain because I like dogs. Cats, OTOH, don’t need the structure, and my down times don’t bother them.

I’ve been tempted to “declare my preferred pronoun” as dog, since on the internet… But that leads me to make a personal point, that y’all see a lot of me here, but what you can’t see are the daily dark times, when I can’t do much of anything. I type through Tourette’s by timing my keystrokes and using a spellchecker, and my presence here works the same way. I work and socialize every time I can, so y’all can’t see the limits and challenges.

They had apparently reinstated him as a gold medal winner back in 83, but as a co-champion in both events. They didn’t even want to acknowledge him as the sole winner simply because he was a paid pro athlete at the time.

Jim Thorpe was stripped of his gold medals because of a rule at the time saying that professional athletes could not compete in the Olympics. He was essentially stripped because he was getting paid. He was also a member of the Sac and Fox nation and he was probably also stripped because of his race from what would’ve been an all-white IOC.

a non-political logic issue….

“I believe it would probably impact her life, and so, therefore, it would fall under any exception and would not be an abortion,” said Foster.

“Wait,” replied Swalwell, puzzled. “It would not be an abortion if a 10-year-old with her parents made the decision not to have a baby that was the result of a rape?”

“If a 10-year-old became pregnant as a result of rape and it was threatening her life, then that’s not an abortion,” Foster said. “So it would not fall under any abortion restriction in our nation.”
——————-
“When an ectopic pregnancy ruptures, what are the chances it can be carried safely to term?” Pressley asked Hawley. 

Hawley acknowledged that an ectopic pregnancy is a life-threatening condition, but added, “That’s why the treatment for ectopic pregnancies is not an abortion.”

——–
the definition of the procedure does not change upon circumstances

Hawley’s not a good example for anything, really. He’s done and said too many idiotic things to take seriously, and I hope he goes the way of the similarly idiotic and overly litigious Devin Nunes, who’s likely still hunting that satirical Twitter cow. Of course, we also have Biden, who believes that 9mm round blow lungs out of bodies, so use a shotgun instead, and that he can flood the economy with more and more dollars, and it won’t affect inflation at all.

As the great philosopher once said, we get the gov’t we deserve.

Biden flubs often, no doubt. The last guy doctored a hurricane forecast map with a sharpie to avoid saying he misspoke.
Most economists predicated an inflation spike back in 2020 regardless, could he have done more to get in front of it, I’ve no idea.
When the major projects that were funded get up to speed (fingers crossed) it should moderate things

BleedingRedAndGold
Reply to  pompano
07/14/2022 8:40 pm

Those aren’t merely “flubs”, not from the POTUS. They’re things he’s deliberately chosen to say on the public record, in his official capacity. He’s also tried to blame high gas prices on gas station owners, not caring that they make > $0.02 of the per-gallon price. I could go on, and list others, but since you prefer only criticizing the RNC, and went back there as a distraction from Biden, et al, (I could counter that by going back to Obama’s stupidities, but no) there seems to be no mutual ground for discussion.

Throwing out politicians that I have little but scorn for doesn’t address my point. They ain’t mine, but Biden’s yours. You can’t defend him by assigning these straw men to me, I reject them, literally and personally.

As tonight demonstrates, we have points where we agree, and points where we do not. I could trot out the PD which made news, in that it takes them so long to investigate their own offices after they kill someone that they sometimes kill again, before the first investigation’s concluded. I won’t do that, but I’ll note that rather than notches on their guns, they denote killings by bending the tips of the stars they wear. These are not signs of a PD that values human life.

To clarify, we can point to vehicle deaths going 25 MPR, we don’t make policy based off that outlier. Likewise, we can say a 10 year old (which how she was even able to get pregnant in the first place should be investigated ) being raped shouldn’t deter from saving lives

I don’t agree with your standard, given that 80% of Americans are good with discretionary abortions up to week 15. Your language below makes it sound like you want those children to be punishment, for reasons relating to your personal moral views, not objective reasoning.

Mitch has to be up there with Priest and Mathieu as an all-time great Chiefs FA signing.

Dan Saleameua , John Phiilips, both plan B free agents. Marcus Allen. eddie Kennison is way up there. Dude doesn’t get enough love, but look at his numbers in KC. Dude was a bust before he came here

Carl found a lot of gems in free agency. I’m surprised he never got a second shot in the NFL
