Wednesday Night O/T: The Last Chargers QB not Named Rivers to Play the Chiefs? Drew Brees

 130 replies

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

You never really hear about it since the Chargers never made the Super Bowl with him, but they’ve had one of the most stable quarterback situations in the NFL before parting with Rivers. The last time the Chiefs player a Chargers team without Rivers starting was 2005 when Drew Brees was still leading the team. In fact it’s been 20 years since the Chargers played the Chiefs without Rivers, Brees, or Doug Flutie, and that was when Ryan Leaf was starting.

Another fun streak is how long it’s been since the Chargers have beaten the Chiefs on a Sunday. The last Chargers win over the Chiefs was 2018, but that was on Thursday (a day with notoriously fluky results). Outside of that the Chiefs have won every matchup since 2013. Reid is 11-3 against the Chargers since coming to KC, and even then one of those losses was with backups in 2013.

Got here late tonight. Saw over 100 comments and thought there was a political flame war going on.

Nope. Just some football, music, tectonic plates, and gay porn discussion.

Only real rule is it needs to have come out post 2000. Kind of defeats the whole modern music inclusion if it’s not really all that modern. As for the theme of the week, that’s really just something I started last week because I was pissed at work and figured I’d carry it over to this week because I thought it gave a good opportunity to do something a bit different. Time will tell if it sticks around

We mentioned favorite guitarists last night, and this is my offering. While he isn’t technically better than, say, Page or Clapton, the way he makes the guitar sing for the last minute and a half of this song is incredible. I’m not smart enough to know what “vibrato” is, but people have often spoken about Paul Kossoff’s vibrato.

Its a 2010 Tribute. Biggest difference with a Standard is this one has Gibson 57 and 57+ pickups, and most Standards have Gibson Burstbuckers. The 57s are slightly overwound, which makes them hotter and adds a little extra gain to the front end of an amp, especially a tube front end

on most acoustics it really doesnt matter. On a single cut like he’s playing it does, but not many acoustics have a cutaway. The pick guard will be on the wrong side, but its mostly decorative anyway, as far as playing goes get it restrung lefty and your good to go

Gotta pay to replace or re-work the nut, though. Inherent lefty tax, and I’m still looking for reasonably-priced lefty scissors and kitchen shears. I never cared about the pick guard of mine, back in the day, it was the impossibility of re-stringing it on my own. No longer have the interest, but the resentments still linger.

Technically yeah, but for most beginners perfect intonation just aint gonna be that big a thing, you wont pick up on it until you have graduated to a better instrument. Why would restringing it be impossible? Its a pain in the ass, but its not that difficult unless you have a Floyd Rose tremolo. Those things are of the devil

I was thinking bridge not nut, yeah, you gotta recut the slots slightly bigger for the wound strings, but if the nut is cut properly you probably wont have to do much refill on the wider slots. They should be cut so 2/3 of the string is sticking out, you can take a blade and cut a very shallow groove and hold the unwound strings in place, once again, not a pro quality setup, but for the average player at home it will get the job done. I been doing my own setups for a long time. I still set intonation by ear, everybody I know uses those silly clip on tuners

That’s not the only weirdness up this way. Have you ever looked into the ancient Lake Agassiz? When I was on my HS football team we played in the Agassiz Valley Conference, and that was as far south as Fergus Falls. Just a monster of a lake, and when it finally emptied northward it altered the climate.
