Had my doubts about Powell when we drafted him – still early in the process but he is receiving some favorable reviews.

I like him. Would’ve obviously preferred a more highly rated prospect, but he does have a couple of traits that our WR corps has been missing (except for Tyreek); ability to track a pass while he’s running down the field, and ability to go take a pass away from a DB and keep it for himself. Tyreek is great at both those things, but everybody else in the WR corps last year seemed below average at both those things.

L’Jarius Sneed appears to be the Chiefs’ top nickel corner, with Charvarius Ward & Mike Hughes on the outside. Juan Thornhill hasn’t taken as many reps as Daniel Sorensen.

Surprising. I’ve been convinced that the reason they didn’t bring Breeland back was to make room for Sneed on the outside.

Andy Reid noted that Mecole Hardman got off to a good start to camp in today’s practice and said, “He’ll keep getting better as he goes here. This will be a big camp for him.”

Metcalf would not be the same player here. He is force fed the ball because he is truly their #1 receiving option.

Whereas Mecole’s stats would be much more impressive if Hill and Kelce weren’t ahead of him in target share.

That 6″ height advantage is tough to overcome. Metcalf is as close to Megatron as we have seen since Megatron. Hardman is faster, but not that much faster. Ask Andy Reid what you can do with a tall fast receiver. TO averaged 15.6 per catch and had 14 TDs in 2004. First team all-pro.

At the time we drafted Mecole we thought we weren’t going to have Hill on the team anymore.

Of all the we could have drafted hims in the Veach era, I don’t second guess the Hardman pick as much. He has been productive and I expect a big uptick this year.

Hardman is a fun big play guy to watch but this is the year he needs to prove that he can be a consistent weapon as a receiver. AND do not let him be a returner.

Not from me over either pic. IMO they’re close to the line, but not over it, or even crowding it closely. Keep that as your limit, and I won’t have a problem. Both are suggestive, but the MTV version of Girls, Girls, Girls is even more so, in spite of having clear coverage of the naughty bits.

No nudity (and I agree that standard’s hypocritical, since male nipples are NBD, but that’s not what advertisers care about), no obvious sexuality. It’s a fairly simple rule to follow, but I’d rather not have to try to get too specific, which is the endgame with someone who persists at pushing the limits.

Since that would end up being more restrictive on everyone, I’m glad you’ve decided to not push it anymore. Much appreciated.

I cannot understand a religious objection to vaccines beyond the sects that refuse any and all medical interventions (which I don’t understand either, but at least they are consistent).

mine is just raw in angry at this point. Been in a discussion with idiots on FB for a couple days now after I went on a full blown rans about these dipshits not getting vaccinated fucking it up for everybody after we were litrerally handed, free of charge, a get of jail free card. if just enough of us had done it, like maybe 75-80% this shit would be over. But no, we gotta play some sort of nonsensical political bullshit. So now here in Arkansas, its actually worse than at the peak in January. Our hospitals are full. For no good reason. Its asinine

masking and staying home was stupid. Never gonna work ever unless you do what China did and weld peoples doors shut. We mishandled this thing from the beginning in every way possible, except for one. Our biochemists fucking got serious and developed several very effective vaccines in a very short time. The Trump admin should get far more credit for accomplishing that than the media would ever dare to give them. What mind boggling is that Trumps one true achievement is the one thing his supporters are most resistant to.

Not just Trump supporters. Lots of NYC health department as well, and others. Including people who listened to Kamala when she said that she’d be suspicious of any vaccine developed while Trump was in charge. If you think it’s just Trump supporters, you’ve been getting less than half the picture.

Thing is, my point with the Europe remark (and Australia, which is and has been even worse, we have an office down there that I talk with once in a while and oh my god), is that the same exact people who were promoting that obvious nonsense are the people now encouraging you to hate un-vaccinated people and believe that they are all Trumpos.

You’re much smarter than this. We all are. I truly don’t understand why it’s so hard for us to act that way.

You realize that new restrictions on vaccinated people are just the ol’ peer pressure tactic, right?

I.E., Drill sergeant says, “All right idiots, since this one genius messed up, now EVERYbody’s gonna pay…” then EVERYbody stares hate at the one guy.

You’re letting people who are stupider than you fool you into hating other people.

You have to realize that this virus has mutated to a more virulent strain & that even vaccinated people can now transmit their increased viral load to others more easily & they themselves experience “Break Through ” Infections & THAT is the actual driver of the change in masking guidelines.

These EVOLVING recommendations are being targeted towards higher transmission zones, wherever they occur & ” At Risk ” Populations ( Schools , Hospitals , Nursing Homes ) As well as Prolonged High Density Situations Such as Air Travel.

The idea is to dampen the transmission so that future, even more pathological mutations,cannot find hosts to propagate in .

A small percentage of vaccinated people have been getting “break through” infections since back when we still named these viruses after the places they came from instead of Greek letters. Now, like then, these infections in vaccinated people are no worse than a mild flu.

Schools are not at-risk populations. Children have proven to be the opposite of at-risk for covid. Teachers and staff and parents can take the same precautions that anyone else working or shopping or living anywhere else should be taking.

Hospitals and nursing homes should have been treated as at-risk populations from the very start, which they were not.

Nothing has changed on airplanes. So they’re not part of the “new restrictions” that I commented on.

Every intelligent person understands what the basic idea is and should be. Nobody is intelligent enough to know whether these mRNA vaccines, which are based on entirely new tech, are going to cause any long term health issues or birth defects in future generations like so many new drugs in the past have eventually done.

You want an un-vaccinated person who catches and transmits the flu to be held responsible for bad results that happen to you. If you convince somebody to take an mRNA vaccine, and they develop a complication two or five or ten years down the road, or their future child ends up with a thalidomide-like birth defect, are you going to be held responsible for that? No, you are not. Are the drug companies or the government going to be held responsible? No, they are not.

So…I guess you’re free to keep trying to make that decision for other people, since you don’t have to worry about any consequences to yourself for doing so. Maybe that makes you feel ok about it.
