A few people I know have the omicron variant, it spreads quick. Everyone vaccinated so mild symptoms, fortunately. If not vaccinated please do so for your own safety.

I think the Chiefs have the better defense in week 17, we were not very good to start the season

I know I tend to be a broken record about it, since I’ve been going on about it for three seasons now, but it’s been true every year, for different reasons. It wasn’t really the case prior to ’18, but since then, the full-season stats are misleading, late in the season. The only way to really get a read on our team is to ignore the first half of each of those seasons.

Every time, we weren’t going to go very far, because look at those full-season stats, and yet we only missed 3 SB appearances by the slimmest of margins, once. In ’19, our D wasn’t going to be able to stop the Niners, and we saw what came of that. Next season, the smart pundits are going to say to hold on, if we have a rough start, because we’ve gotten things going for 3 straight seasons now, so you have to consider it as a trend.

But really, the reason they have kept getting it wrong is because they blindly trusted the full-season stats when they shouldn’t have. The first-half stats had little to say about 2nd-haf performance, but since the stats are established as a trustworthy measure, trust they get, even when they’re wrong. Statistics is only a tool, and as with any tool, you need to understand how it works. The pundits don’t, that takes mental effort.

NFL teams are what they are in the 2nd half of the season, or in their playoff run

the Chiefs are undefeated, only Miami can claim that against the Chiefs this season

Yes, it’s true of all teams, but that normally is a variation within the limits of the stats. It doesn’t mean they’re spot on in every other case, by any stretch, but KC’s an outlier, for a number of reasons. Part of that’s due to the two reps we’ve been assigned, the first being a very good regular season team that gets nowhere in the playoffs, and the other’s been that if our offense isn’t producing the numbers it did in ’18, there’s something inherently wrong.

But over the last 3 seasons, we’ve had a complete defensive re-vamp, a season without an off-season that we needed more than most are willing to admit, and a season with a completely re-vamped OL. Each is a case where the situation threw off normal expectations, but people have clung to them anyway. This has been to the detriment of some of our players, figuratively, but very few are willing to chuck a comfortable, easy process. This leads to things like Hardman being expected to be fully up to 3rd-year standards of performance, without a full 3 years of development. CEH gets more of the same, plus the added resentment of his deciding to be selected with a tail-end Rd 1 pick, instead of waiting until later to be picked. Sheesh.

The current three seed is no other than your own Cincinnati Bengals. We are in late December and this team controls their own destiny. The path is fairly simple: Beat the Chiefs to secure the AFC North crown. If they are unable to win a third game in a row for the first time this season, the Week 18 matchup in Cleveland could very well determine whether they make the playoffs at all or not.

Are we AFCN Champs if Pittsburgh Wins vs Cleveland and Rams Win vs Baltimore regardless of our outcome vs KC? We own tie breaker vs Pittsburgh and Baltimore… This is going to be a great game vs KC. We could face them again so I’m hoping we play really good to have confidence in that second game in the Playoffs.. Let’s Gooooooooo

“Schlub”, he says, after pushing himself as hard as he could manage for weeks on end.

Don’t sell yourself short, amigo, you’ve done better than many of the writers here could have managed, back before they left. Some rightly so, some in a huff, and some just straight-up abandoned us and never looked back.

The last thing I wanted for AG was to try to keep a fading site going. If it would’ve prevented it from happening, I would’ve resigned, first, but am I net at fault, when my contributions and drawbacks are balanced? My parents raised me to take on all the blame, but if I’m trying to be honest, I think I’m more an asset than a detriment.

The wife and I basically do. Oh, we live in a small rural town and have some disability bennies along with my checks, but even with that and a few more Gs per year, it isn’t easy.

I’m due a new set of specs, and need them, because the last optometrist screwed me over by not taking anything I said seriously. He followed his routines and got that sweet VA money, and I was left with useless frames. Yay. This time I’m going with my wife’s clinic, and they’ve done better, but I still have a misunderstanding I have to disabuse them of. Fortunately, these people are more inclined to listen.

My parents prolly think I’m just being lazy, and found a way to get by without working. If only they knew.

But they don’t, of course. They know all they need to know, which is probably why they tried to re-parent our adult youngest son, to the point where he feels relief, just from having moved to 30min away. His own, unprompted take tonight was that they see too much of me in him, more or less.

Reconcile with those people, after they’ve run off both of my kids with their selfishness? Fuck that noise, and if all their holdings, all that family land, gets sold off and gets wasted on some pet charity, so be it. I won’t knuckle under to them, and neither will the only grandchildren they’re going to have. Their vision’s going to come to naught, in the end.

A fair point, but I’ve been avoiding the negativity, too. It would be better if I were setting an example, perhaps, but I’m also considerably sensitized to that sort of thing, and I’ve been working on recovery for months and months.

It’s only in the last month or so where I could bear to watch any football clips at all, and I still have to avoid the bicker-fests. For those who’ve been keeping score, that goes along with me finally being able to write again, at least a little.

Wish I could’ve done more and could do more, but it’s a process, one that’s been going on since August, but that’s after pushing myself close to the breaking point for about 18 months. And that on top of taking on an increased workload to ensure we were hitting the three posts per day mark. Ask Pomp, that much grinding takes a toll on a body.

Wraps? I heard he was offered a plea deal, and IIRC it was for longer than 10 years.

Besides, if you were in his shoes, and offered to plead it down to a couple of dimes and a felony rap, would you just take it, like you’re an actual criminal? Not your truck, you don’t maintain it, but the brakes failed – and it’s all your fault now, or was it an accident?

When you’re faced with every charge the prosecutor can tack on in order to drive you to a plea bargain, do you capitulate, state in open court that you’re a POS criminal and deserve life in prison, plus cancer, and are lucky to only lose a couple decades of your life by admitting how bad a person you are, get back to me. Rhetorically speaking, of course, but that’s how the 110 sentence came to be. Even the judge in the case said it was too much, but legal requirements tied his hands.

And people are unhappy that he won’t die in some hellhole after decades of living as a subhuman? Not me, that’s for damn sure, and I’m speaking as someone who lost his little brother to a traffic accident. The teenager shouldn’t have been riding his motorcycle, he wasn’t licensed, but am I unhappy that he didn’t serve a day for it? No, because it would’ve served no purpose, something I understood when I was seven.

Others have their own opinions, but I have direct experience plus decades of studying how the legal system actually works. Torturing someone for something that you weren’t even involved in, just so you can feel good about someone getting punished, is not a road I care to walk. If you punish someone and it makes things worse overall, does that make the punishment good anyway? Not in my book.
