Did anyone see that the Chiefs got fucking Hollywood Brown?

That’s gonna be a big problem

Yeah I'm tired of the injury excuse regarding Chase Young. In the 9 games before he got hurt that season he had 1.5 sacks. In his "great" rookie season he had 7.5. That was not what we expected the day he was drafted, he just has never been able to get to the QB at the NFL level. And now he is lazy.

LOL.


I'm old enough to remember a lot of fans around here were dismissing other fans when they were questioning CY for missing camps. They were constantly giving him passes on being out there chasing the bag instead of working on his craft.


Make no mistake about it. If guys are missing camp, no matter if its voluntary or not, it's a problem. Especially if it's guys that are young, not established nor proved their effort level. The biggest bag is going to come when these dudes become all-pros, I don't see why they don't get that. It's entirely different if a guy is established as a stud, wants a contract and holds out. I can understand that. I can't understand is guys thinking they better than they are and chasing bags instead of greatness.

Chase robbed the Saints of 12mil. I wouldn't have given him 5mil, never the less 12.

I would despise OSU if it wasn't for Terry McLaurin.

But NC is right in his assessment, I think. A selfish, self-centered guy who needed to work on his game, as opposed to his brand?

honestly you know what i think, i see it in youth sports the grass roots of this, both my kids are heavily involved

youth sports is do much money now a days and parents want their kids on THE team (winning) so these clubs go looking for the best kids don't charge them tuition and they attract so many other kids to that team; the HERO BALL kids are so babied its ridiculous; we are now seeing it bubble up to the professional level

a lot of times these kids are not even that great they just won the puberty lottery; I bet you anything chase was coddled at OSU and Dehmatha High

Chase's issue was he was spoiled, told he was great before he was great, and just heavily leaned on his physically size/skills but was too lazy to perfect the advance skills have his job to make it at the pro level

Yeah . . . even in youth club flag teams. Its ridiculous!! I coach 3/4 grade, 5/6 grade and 7/8 grade Gridiron recreational teams. When i get a team we start out getting crushed, but by the end of the season or even better if i can keep a team together for a second season they start to be able compete against the club teams that sign up for Gridiron recreation leagues to "practice". Once we start to compete these club teams come in and take all my players as they pay their fees and promise them glory that i can't/won't do. And yes, the really good ones get everything handed to them, even as little kids!!

Yesterday we had 3 games and my 3rd and 4th grade team (Washington Commanders) beat up on a club team (Chicago bears, lol) yesterday 24 - 6. First game of the year. And no kidding, coaches are already trying to poach some of the kids for next season!!

Re: Around the NFL - FA tampering/start

Not sure why FS Justin Simmons is still available in the FA market?
Not sure how much $ he is asking for but maybe he can be recruited by our popular new coaching staff.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOzXFvn4aAA

6’2” 202 pounds
Prefect size and play.
Leads all current NFL current players with 30 interceptions and he is 30 years old. He would solidify our defense instantly.

Apparently safeties and running backs are all useless. Just plug and play.

I disagree this is true, and definitely with safeties, but that seems to be the case based on how the market is playing out.

It doesn't make sense to me, it's obviously a passing league, but somehow either of us could possibly start at safety for us.

Re: Around the NFL - FA tampering/start

You're not wrong and it doesn't make sense. You'd think it was highly imperative for a defence to have a FS that could cover side-line to side-line and get you picks. SS seems more of a hybrid position across the league, with so many nickel and dime schemes in use, but even then you want a guy who can cover, particularly TE's. Are we maybe missing a new Ed Reed/Sean Taylor equivalent to reset the standard/market?
