  1. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    You can survive like a month without food, and if it was cold enough that they would have frozen, wouldn't they have frozen anyways on the walk up and back? As long as they kept moving while on their little island, it makes sense they'd be fine, if they'd be fine just walking around north of the wall. And they do have a guy that can make fire, basically.
  2. Preseason Week 2 - Chiefs vs Bengals

    I count at least 4 completions that were not to his first read, including the initial touchdown. Along with the scrambles where he went through progression and found nothing open. There were a number of first read plays, yes, but most of those were bubble screens (along with one slant) which we will always have a lot of in this offense given our personnel.
  3. Saturday Preseason Games

    It's getting harder to stay calm and patient about Mahomes. He looks excellent so far.
  4. Preseason Week 2 - Chiefs vs Bengals

    Smith looks good, Mahomes looks good, Hunt looks good. A lot to be excited about so far.
  5. Preseason Week 2 - Chiefs vs Bengals

    I'm ready for Gaines to just be cut. He's responsible for the majority of Cincinatti's movement on offense so far.
  6. Preseason Week 2 - Chiefs vs Bengals

    Phillip Gaines picking up right where he left off last year.
  7. Marvel/Netflix: The Defenders

    That whole situation felt contrived purely to give Luke Cage and Iron Fist something to argue about it.
  8. Preseason Week 2 - Chiefs vs Bengals

    I'll definitely be watching. Mahomes is obviously the main draw, and really should be for everyone. Past that, I'm hoping for an opportunity to see a bit more of the run game. Particularly from Hunt. He only got 1 carry in game one, which isn't really even a glimpse at what he's capable of doing. West was really the only guy who got serious touches there, and he's a known and not particularly impressive commodity. Would be nice to see someone stand out as a returner, as well. Hill should still handle punts most of the season, but it'd be nice to have a threat at kick returns still.
  9. Marvel/Netflix: The Defenders

    Won't post anything spoilery since I'm sure many are still working their way through it, what with it just releasing today, but, I'm mildly disappointed. It's well better than what Iron Fist was. Not the kind of mess that the end of Luke Cage was either. But it doesn't live up to most of Daredevil or Jessica Jones. It was just kind of okay, for me. A few actors, characters, and scenes were absolutely phenomenal, but the overall product wasn't, and there were some really poor choices in terms of script and plot.
  10. Alex Smiths future

    He doesn't have any value as a backup at his current cap price. He would have value to a backup for us as well, if that was all that mattered. But no one wants a $15M+ backup QB. If he was on a backup contract, we'd just keep him, as he'd make a great backup to Mahomes.
  11. NFL Suspends Zeke Elliot 6 games

    This is basically what it amounts to. And this is sufficient for the NFL. All that's needed is probability. And a victim's story lining up perfectly with a forensic analysis of the wounds is enough for probability. If I run up to you bleeding, with a stab wound in the gut, a cut across my face, and a cut on my arm, and say some guy came at me with a knife, even if you generally think I'm not trustworthy, you're going to think my story is probably true. You're not going to wonder what other weapons could of caused it, if I maybe stabbed myself, or if I perhaps fell on a pile of sharp objects. What I'm telling you is just probably right. She has a clear cut story of what happened, and photos of the ensuing injuries, and those two things line up per forensic experts. The counter-defense is, maybe it happened some other way. Even if we believe her to be an untrustworthy person, that still leaves her story as pretty probable. Which is enough.
  12. NFL Suspends Zeke Elliot 6 games

    Of course they can't prove it was him. Without video evidence, there's always some degree of chance that someone else assaulted her or that she wounded herself or that some weird series of accidents caused the injuries (by the same logic, Elliott cannot prove that it WASN'T him.) But they don't need to prove it's him. They just have to assess that it was most likely him. And since the injuries and photos match her story, that's what they decided.
  13. Chiefs breakout candidates

    All reports are phenomenal. He was at the center of most of the early camp hype.
  14. Alex Smiths future

    The trouble with trading a QB like Smith is you need really certain situations around the league for their to be any demand for him whatsoever. He'll be an upgrade at the position to maybe 10 teams, or so, at that time, but a chunk of those would be thrown out because they have young QBs they want to work with, a few would be thrown out because they're really not looking to contend for anything at all, and then a few probably wouldn't have the cap space to work it. You basically need a team with ample cap room, who is looking to contend immediately, and already has a roster outside of the QB position that can contend. Basically, we need a team like us from a few years ago to make it work. Or like Minnesota last year. Or even a recent Houston type team. But there aren't any of those around right now. With a year gone by, you could maybe get the Rams or Jags to bite if Goff and Bortles flop again (would add Broncos and Lynch, but that's doubtful for obvious reasons.) Maybe if someone like Ben or Palmer or Eli retire suddenly. Or if you have an injury like Bridgewater or Tannehill. But that's a lot of ifs, and it's very plausible that none happen and that there's just no market for him. I think we'll either have to cut him or try to work out a restructure to keep him on as a backup/mentor, depending on how he views his possibilities in the NFL at that point, and how pressed we are against next year's cap (I can't recall who we have to sign or deal with next year, at the moment.) I really don't think the market will be there for a trade unless we get very lucky and some other team gets very unlucky.
  15. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    While that's a very nice quote, Tywin, and the Lannister's as a whole, have shown on many occasions to care a great deal about their reputation. And I don't necessarily mean their reputation with the "sheep" either, but at least with other lords and major houses. Your house's reputation matters greatly when trying to make political moves like, say, marrying off your daughter to the king of Westeros. Having your house appear to be in order matters. Also, Robert was not king when Tyrion was born, so Robert wouldn't have anything to do with that ruling. Tyrion's birth would've occurred before the Baratheon king and Lannister queen.
