Thursday Night Open Thread: Kyle Long got injured, but the Chiefs actually have depth at guard now

 32 replies

This sucks for Long, who is coming out of retirement, but for the team it’s not as big of a loss as it would have been last year. LDT is returning from sitting out due to Covid last year, and newly drafted rookie Trey Smith has been impressive in practice so far.

This depth speaks to the effort Veach has put into building the O-line this offseason. While the new starters are getting the hype, in my opinion it’s the new depth that’s the most impressive.

I turned to the dark side last year and bought a Harley. It’s my exit plan from life. With Covid last year I’ve made a lot of friends via the internet, my fist stop will be off the east coast in Mexico. I’m supposed to go visit someone in Alaska and Florida as well.

I don’t remember the invite, but fine, just call from TX so I have a couple days to get the place ready for company 🙂

Ive been looking at cargo vans and installing a solar powered HVAC system with a bed and a trailer for the bike. You really don’t need much to survive. I’d like to go to Yellowstone sometime. Load up the dog and be gone.

ok so I am still trying to figure out bitcoin…

But I thought it interesting that the bitcoin hackers groups are targeting Windows 95/98 systems ????

We have major corporate IT systems running on 30 year old software?

If our Security and Exchange commission can not determine illegal transactions why did Martha Stewart go to white collar boot camp aka prison aka where rich people serve

fuck it

rich people if they do go to prison are treated like rich people there too

Hi folks, been busy recently but lurking when I can. OL news brings me to attention, Long’s absence will decrease training camp competition slightly but there’s still good talent competing. If Wylie is the 3rd option behind Smith and LDT then we’re doing okay, and there’s others fighting for roles too. I’m curious whether there’s been any reports on LDT’s presence and impact in camp? Cheers all, going to get another beer but I’ll keep an eye on here.

Doctor LDT has not been in camp, but WILL be back for the mandatory camp beginning next Tues (as per some Andy Reid guy)

Ah, thanks, I expect he’ll be ready to compete but a year away is tough in this game.

LDT is surgical in his precision
He could fix Long if he wanted too
