I cut cable once and did not miss it. I have cable now. I don't watch much TV. I got my company to give me the network channels and 15 cable channels of my choice. It included the NFL Network but not Red Zone or the Mets Channel (called SNY). I chose channels I may watch but I watch only a few. Without taxes and other charges, it is about $50. They had been charging $140+ to have channels I never watch.

Nice. It’s a monopoly in my area. We basically have a choice of either Great (Mediocre) Plains Communications or Frontier… both are meh in customer service and tv providing.

Chiefs fans better not take this era for granted. What they’re experiencing is rare and special. I did with Manning… and again with Luck… 

I think True Chiefs fans know the pain of waiting for decades for this...

 

Now think Vikings fans get an elite QB... They'd be taking a sip for every word Paul Allen says like it's Minneapolis Miracle..

I was an * when young… I thought Manning would be with us for a long time… and I was fooled into thinking the same with Luck… I’ve wisened up to realize our era of being a dynasty (if we could even call it that with just one title) is over and probably won’t happen again in my lifetime.

Not sure if you'd call it a dynasty but we had something special for several years. 

 

Peyton, Marvin, Edge, Reggie, Dallas, Adam, Brandon, Dwight and the list goes on.  

Those were some great times for sure.

And the guy on the screen right now, Tony Dungy. A very special coach.

Pride of Detroit Lions fans are talking about blatant holding that KC OL does as Patriots used to for Brady, and how refs allow it ..

 

They're not happy with their zone defense, secondary still not being good, not running the ball often.. 

 

All fans do that. We Vikings fans complained a lot about holding by the Packers OL, especially the guy we called Bacteria haha

I love Tony Dungy. He is such a class act and a great human being. He was our defensive coordinator in my early days as a Vikings fan.

Yep. Mahomes may not be the GOAT, but he’s the best player in football easy.

Here's where Mahomes stacks up against the greatest of the greatest:

 

Tom Brady - 7 SB wins, 10 SB Apps, 3 League MVP's, 5 SB MVP's

 

Joe Montana - 4 SB wins, 4 SB Apps, 2 League MVP's, 3 SB MVP's

 

Peyton Manning - 2 SB wins, 4 SB Apps, 5 League MVP's, 1 SB MVP

 

Mahomes - 2 SB wins, 3 SB Apps, 2 League MVP's, 2 SB MVP's. Pretty impressive considering he may play 10 more years. Scary actually.

Episode 8 Genes GIF by MacGruber

 

It's the Genes...

 

How do you think Mahomes would've been in professional Baseball ..? 

 

He probably would be good. His father was a relief pitcher for the Mets, IIRC. He was okay. The younger Mahomes may have been a better player.

    • Also the reason  you go wr is to make sure you have the right  qb. If he stinks with an star cast of offensive  weapons  then you know you need another qb
    • Very true.  Josh Allen is another one.  The Bills traded for Diggs to help him out and they took off.  Now he’s gone.  I expect the Bills to do something big again to help him out.  Once you get your quarterback the next step is making sure he has the weapons around him.  Right now AR has some real quality weapons.  Getting him another one could really set the team up for a nice run.
    • Yes, if I'm forced to choose, I'd go with Williams, despite him earning some reputation with all the garbage talk from his camp even since the year before the actual draft. I read a scout saying that the PR guys (including his father) Williams has led him to those bad reputation and decisions, when he should've gone under the radar with much more good vibes surrounding him. Anyway, it's on him now to prove by his play in the NFL.   I'd also go with Daniels, as Williams seems just out of reach for anyone other than Bears. Concerns with Daniels are about his durability and the ability to dissect NFL defenses, but if he becomes injury prone in the NFL, at least that'd help the team to move on to finding the next franchise QB.   My overall gripe with this QB class is that no one stands out as being strong in his ability to go through progressions and reads, as many of their offenses seemed to involve limited reads. So it falls squarely on the individual's intelligence to be able to translate at the highest level, and there's no way any fan like us would get to know without working him out and bringing him in for interviews - which teams are doing with those QBs. So, NFL teams will need to figure out who among this class can consistently pick apart NFL defenses or at least grow into that level.   This QB class is different because the tape of them doesn't tell that part of the story due to the offenses they played in. 
    • It is about who will have a greater impact. Cj stroud is surrounded by more talent on offense  than Richardson  currently. We need to close the gap. Zone corners will be there in the second.  If we go wr in the second  all the best ones will be gone and we may be stuck with another Alec pierce 
    • The only similarities that Ballard and Veach have is that they were both on KC at the time Mahomes was drafted (Veach is the GM now obviously), and they both build well through the draft. Other than that, they are different in every other way as GMs.    You are correct, Ballard is more like Dorsey. Ballard is actually best friends with Dorsey. They had a thing in the draft where Dorsey always prank called Ballard during the draft. Was kinda funny.    If AR hits, then we will have gotten there as a playoff team the slow way. However, with Ballard, it will have taken a lot onger than it ever should have. People can blame Lucks retirement, Reich, or whatever, but GMs generally don't start with a franchise QB when they take over a team. IMO, Ballard was a scout who had no idea how to be a GM when he took over, and when Luck retired, it completely exposed him. He finally figured it out 7 years in his tenure. Might be too little, too late.
