I think it only stops under 2 mins? 

Did they change that or am I crazy, the clock stops whenever a player goes out of bounds.

Ah, ok. They spotted it and restarted it. Idk why I thought it was always restart upon snap.

In the final two minutes of 1st half and final 5 minutes of 2nd half, the clock starts on the snap.

Nah.   NE  has to travel to KC.   KC has an extra day to rest on top of not having to travel.  I would not be so quick to count KC out.

I agree Gramz I personally think that KC can beat the Pats especially since they play in KC. I don't think the Pats have that great of record on away games. (does that tell you any thing) :funny:

For a team that was “sub Par” and “on the downward trend” being in the AFCCG is pretty nice lol

KC fans have been so cocky and arrogant I am kind of wanting NE to go to arrowhead and destroy them.

Barring that "can't wait" miracle pulled off by Rex Ryan and the Jets, NE has not lost coming off a bye week in the divisional round at home.

 

Should be a fun AFCCG at Arrowhead stadium.

Just let the initial sting wear off.... And realise the many years of arrogant NE fans we have dealt with...

NE fans are the worst. Philly is second, and the NY teams are third. Worst of the worst. KC doesn’t come close.

The reason Mahomes started slow vs Patriots on the road was because Belichick took Kelce away first. Having played the Patriots once and having Watkins back as a third option gives Andy Reid more options to game plan for them.

 

As far as the Patriots are concerned, until the Chiefs prove they can stop the run, heavy doses of Michel and Burkhead and FB Develin is what they’re using.

Mahomes also missed like 3 td passes in a row to start that game...

If they went to Foxborough , they would be whistling a different tune. I have to deal with these eight balls 8-9 times a year when the Red Sox roll into Camden Yards, on top of the Patriots . To know them is to hate them !

I was pulling for the Chargers right after we lost. Hoodie watched the Ravens blitz the heck out of Rivers, especially the first game. The evil genius did it again.

You're the only one calling either of them a god.

 

They're just football players on good teams with good head coaches.

I don’t want to see Mahomes get a SB in his first season playing.  I want to really see that team have to work for it. Things have been to easy for him.

Hunt always hurt the Pats and he is no longer there.. should be a great game..

Wilson is cool to me, maybe it's because Seahawks fans don't treat him like he's god or something...

The talk about Mahomes makes me wanna puke!! Even fans of other teams treat him like a God. I guess the other 31 teams are full of peasants and them and all the fans must bow to the mighty Mahomes and KC. :facepalm:

He's good.   Not a God.  But he is good. MVP this year, and I think he deserves it. 

 

You don't think he's good?

Sure I think he's good but all it takes is for him to crash down to earth after this year it happens all the time. hes the new thing this year but this talk that hes better than many great QBs with many years of top play just rubs me the wrong way. Like there are people saying hes better than luck like wth lmao

Well, time will tell.

 

I'm okay with the talk this year. He's had a great year, and there's  no denying it.

 

I was disappointed in our loss yesterday, and the play of our team, but I can't be upset with Mahomes for how well he played. 

 

Next year will be Lucks year!

I'd hope he would put up big numbers with his offense full of elite play makers

That's where I'm different than everyone else. I respect players like Luck or Wilson more they play at an elite level with way less help on their teams. Like I said I think Mahomes is good but this talk about him is annoying when he has one season of production. I dont wanna hear how he's better than my qb who has played at a top level every year he has played in the league.

 

The stupid KC fanbase sure didnt make me wanna change my mind either.

I knew in my hesrt of hearts that BB was going to take what the Ravens did and adapt.  Our Oline was pathetic.  I think Gordon was more hurt than the team let on.  

 

A one-sided offense will never beat the Patriots.  Brady was picking his nose behind his line.

Sorry about the loss. It's always tough to lose in the Playoffs but you were 1 of 8 like us, gave it a shot and came up short. Still a good season.

The Chargers are a good team.. they just ran into a very very angry Patriots team that’s been hearing how bad they are and that they would get crushed by the Chargers.

 

only thing I found odd was the lack of in game adjustments by the Chargers. I am pretty sure the Pats could have dropped 60 on them if they had decided to keep pressing.

I think it was a bit of a perfect storm here. Chargers had to play on the East Coast twice in two weeks while the Patriots had the bye. The weather also couldn't have helped. No matter what anyone says, I have a hard time believing that playing and practicing in the cold every day isn't an advantage for the cold-weather-climate team. (Much like the teams based in the South have an advantage early on in the season.)

You must be on the younger side, because this was the argument against Peyton Manning for several years! Just kind of ironic how things come full circle. 

 

I have to disagree overall though. Alex Smith QB'd the same team last year and they were nowhere as good. Mahomes has some amazing physical gifts and he showed a lot of smarts this year on top of those gifts. He's gonna be around, and successful, for a while if he stays healthy.

Its about consistency he has 1 year of play and if he is terrible next year then what? I dont think he will be but unless you can see the future you dont know either

    • I wouldn't consider #10 a diss..... but I have a bit of an issue with the Cowpies ranked #2 at the same time.   We not only shut them out last season, we out manned, out-muscled and intimidated them in a way that none of us have seen a Colts team do to any team in a long, long time.   You could say "well its only one game".... and that's true.   But that was a statement game, and I just don't see how Brandt can justify a #2 ranking for Dallas given each team's additions this off-season....not to mention all those other teams he has them ranked ahead of.   As for the Colts...on our own merits.... I would have us closer to the middle of the pack on this list, around 7th and certainly ahead of Dallas.
    • His mom sounds awesome.  
    • Sigh...........   This is beyond really frustrating.    You're accusing me of things I literally haven't done.     That's very Irish of you.    Really annoying.      You ask for benefit of the doubt while never giving it out yourself.   I've put certain things into bold.   I'll try taking them one at a time.   Your first bold...   that this is not me saying that teams that aren't doing this are stupid.    I'm sorry, but when you declare that you've come up that you think is clearly and obvously better,  that you think you've re-invented the wheel and sliced bread,  it certainly feels like you're casting a disapporving eye toward any team that's not doing things your preferred way as a matter of course.   Then you claim,  that I want Ballard in the building ASAP,  but not before January.    Let me see if you understand this word.....   NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!   Was that clear enough for you?       If Irsay had decided in the spring of 16 to fire Grigson and hire Ballard in the spring, I would've been ok with it.   It's not desirable,  but if Irsay made that call THEN,  I'd be ok with it.     Where YOU mis-read me,  is that roughly 95 of owners make this decision during the season.    They see things they don't like and they decide during the season to make a change -- typically when the season ends.    Sometimes, an exec will be fired during the season and someone like Dorsey comes in during the season to oversee things and learn about the organization.    I'm fine with that.  There's no record of me opposing that.   I start with January,  because that's when the business season starts for front office and coaches.   Period.   The NFL views it as preferrable.    But making the switch in the spring is doable, as I've said in every post, and which you have ignored or confused badly.    But if Ballard had been hired in the spring of 16,  I'd have been fine with it.   This isn't the first time I've said some version of this.    This is not some ah-ha moment.   As to the bold declaring that there are tons of qualified guys and that CHOOSING the best guy is another story.   Here's my reponse to that.   No.   nonsense.     They are the same story.    They are connected.    Because you play down the fact that most GM's and most HC's fail.   They get fired before their 4 or 5 year contracts expire.   The owner has seen enough and makes a change.   Saying there are always qualified guys is meaningless.    Because FINDING the best guy who will succeed, isn't just important,  it's EVERYTHING.   All 32 teams can announce they hired a qualified guy.    That isn't hard.    But the vast majority of teams are introducing his successor in a few years.    That's why a franchise like Pittsburgh has very little turnover either in HC or the front office.   While franchises like the Jets or Buffalo or Miami are introducing someone new so often, you can practically set your watch to it.     Generally speaking,  the new GM has a long history of scouting and evaluating talent.   The new HC has a history of success, both as a position coach and a coordinator.   They can easily be called qualified,  (though new guys like Kliff Kingsbury and Zack Taylor do NOT have a long track record of success)  But the vast majority of hires...   are soon enough fired.   That doesn't speak well to their qualifications.      As to you meaning what you're saying...   Of course you mean what you say and I stated that clearly.  I don't know why this should rub you the wrong way.  I literally wrote that I know you mean what you say.    I said what I said as a rhetorical point,  not an attacking point.    My ultimate point was made at the end of my first post to you.   You typically write persuasive arguments.    You're able to frequently made me see your viewpoint.    But not here.    You accuse me of not considering your argument.    I'm sorry,  I am considering what you write.   But I don't see the typical high quality Superman argument.   I don't see points that connect.    Your argument feels like the one you'd make for doable.   It doesn't convince me at all that it's preferable.  
    • Yeah, Ballard said he's a patient guy, and he doesn't mind waiting to pick. We almost traded back from 34 as well if Rock wasn't there. I personally love the "trade back" strategy at the end of round 1, and wouldn't mind doing it in most every draft. A late 1st for a mid-second and early/mid second (from the Redskins) over two drafts is fine with me!
    • Haven't done research on the 2020 draft yet, but if it ends up having an elite WR or OT, I wouldn't mind trading up this year. We'll have to see where we finish (hopefully 32 ), and make a decision from there. Ballard landing the Redskins 2nd rounder may be a brilliant move.
