Up’d in support of his memory, and may this be a thing. Those who wish to celebrate a death, that have the balls to make a point of it, can comment openly.

Perhaps we could call this The Goose Rule. I can’t proclaim it, but I think it’s worth consideration. What say y’all? Besides, it has a built-in limitation, since every up is in honor of the deceased, and in support of their survivors.

During those storms we got a while back a giant branch fell in my yard, so I finally got a moment to go out and get after it with a chain saw. Unfortunately, since I use a chain saw roughly once every 3-4 years, I suck at using it, so I got it stuck in the branch and I had to use a hand saw to rescue it.

Then after I tired myself out from that, I had a Spanish lesson scheduled, so I spent an hour struggling in Spanish. I had gotten so use to my Chinese lessons, which at this point are just Chinese conversations, that I forgot how frustrating it is when you’re first starting out.

And now I finally have a break, which means I’ll probably watch an episode of Breaking Bad and then do more Spanish until I got to bed.

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS — RANK: 11THKansas City lost two vital pieces of the roster that pushed it to four straight AFC Championship game appearances from 2018-2021 in wide receiver Tyreek Hill and safety Tyrann Mathieu, but tough decisions like these are how you create a 10-year Super Bowl window instead of a five-year one. 
In the short term, they’ll have some growing pains as Marquez Valdes-ScantlingJuJu Smith-Schuster and second-round pick Skyy Moore headline a new receiving corps, but they could do a lot worse in surrounding tight end Travis Kelce with ancillary weapons. 
On the other hand, tackle Orlando Brown Jr. has yet to sign his franchise tender with the July 15 extension deadline fast approaching, and he hasn’t given an inch in negotiations, which is the leverage a player gains after a team trades major draft capital to acquire their services. Kansas City may have no choice but to make him the highest-paid tackle in the NFL, and it’s fair to question if his on-field production is worth that price tag.

It is looking like the Chiefs should just make Brown play on the tender

His on-field performance does not justify him being the high paid tackle in the league.

If we can trade Hill, we can certainly just play Brown this year and find his replacement this upcoming off-season

LAS VEGAS RAIDERS — RANK: 29THThe Raiders arguably have more pressure to perform than any team in the NFL entering the 2022 campaign, as the team has lofty expectations after a playoff bid was followed by massive acquisitions of wide receiver Davante Adams and edge defender Chandler Jones in addition to extensions for quarterback Derek Carr and edge defender Maxx Crosby. Both extensions are very team-friendly, and, in theory, could set up the team for years to come.  New head coach Josh McDaniels elected to undergo a rebuild with the Broncos the last time he was made a head coach and clearly is not interested in going down that road again. That said, the Raiders still have, by far, the longest odds to win the AFC West at +650 on DraftKings Sportsbook, and they are not favored to make the playoffs again. With so much invested in players on the back nine of their careers, the potential for disaster is objectively high in Las Vegas. LOS ANGELES CHARGERS — RANK: 5THLike the Bengals, we discussed last offseason how the Chargers were set up for the future and could add a lot more talent around phenom quarterback Justin Herbert if he continued… Read more »

No way. McKinnon is a perfect change-of-pace back coming in for relief. I don’t see him as a workhorse at all.

As a society, we’re far too quick to grab and use the broad brush, for one thing. As a corollary of that, we’re too apt to ignore relevant statistics.

So, as an example, let’s say that there are 10MM Chiefs fans online. Let’s also say that Hill’s received 10K of those messages. That means that 0.1% of Chiefs fans sending those messages, but 99.9% get tarred with that brush. This sort of outraged virtue signaling is not limited to this instance, even with Hill. Remember how many believed that he broke his son’s arm, and wanted him punished for something he didn’t do? Same fucking thing.

Society has always struggled to keep up with the advance of technology, but few if any consider the consequences of how much its acceleration has added more difficulties to the equation. I didn’t think of it myself, until in typing this out.

Looking back at the tech curve I lived through, the tech level increase between ’75 and ’99 follow a parabolic curve. The dependabilities of our childhoods ceased to exist for those born after my kids’ generation. Societies used to take generations to catch up to new tech, but the rate of change took decades. Now, it’s down to years. I think it’s conservative to say that society hasn’t caught up with the 90s quite yet. Something worth pondering, Pinky.

NFL Network’s Peter Schrager says Chiefs WR Justin Watson is ‘the one to watch’  – watch out for 84

A fifth-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft out of the University of Pennsylvania, Watson spent the past four seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
.
At Penn, Watson was a record-setting receiver. He set school records for receptions (286), receiving yards (3,777), receiving touchdowns (33), and all-purpose yards (4,116). He also set Ivy League records for most 100-Yard Games (19), most consecutive games with a receiving touchdown (10) and most consecutive games with a reception (40).
