  1. I don't think it's necessarily that they're frauds, it's more that none of them have the kind of resume to inspire confidence. All of them either have a glaring hole that is likely to be exploitable in the playoffs (Bortles), they've been so inconsistent that predicting how they'll play in the postseason is a crapshoot (AFC West), or they've already lost to just about any team they'll be facing in the playoffs anyway (Ravens.) I think most of these teams have the potential for things to swing their way and go on a run, I just wouldn't predict it for any of them. KC or LAC or OAK at peak play can challenge anyone. If the Jaguars can avoid having to play from behind, they'll be a pain for anyone to knock out. And playoff Flacco could always repeat. But none of those are as likely as just better, more consistent teams in New England and Pittsburgh, teams that also will have to (most likely) win one less game, making the superbowl instead. These teams aren't frauds, they're just not teams you'd put money on either, even at good odds. There's no one quite like the Rams or the re-Rodgered Packers or the Saints, where you can see enough consistency to say with confidence that they'll play well when the time comes, AND the level of potential to say they could beat anybody. The Chiefs and Chargers have that potential but no consistency. The Jags have both but a glaring weakness. Etc. But like, I'm a Chiefs fan, and I don't know week to week if we're going to score 35 points or 3. It's a mystery. No one is going to put faith in that. The Titans, as you say, are just frauds, though. Weakest SoS in the NFL. A negative point differential on that weak SoS. A 2 week stretch very early in the season being the only impressive thing on their resume. They're actually just not very good.

    That would be a nice best of both worlds. We stay competitive, Alex plays well enough to give us playoff hope, but we still get to give Mahomes a bit of a tryout.
  3. Saturday Night Football - Chargers vs Chiefs

    Allen left the field with like 3 minutes to go in the game.
  4. Saturday Night Football - Chargers vs Chiefs

    I know 17 points is unlikely at this point, but you'd think there'd be more urgency late in a game that's practically for the division.
  5. Saturday Night Football - Chargers vs Chiefs

    Can be both.

    He used to form tackle, though. He didn't sell out so poorly for the strip until this year. I think a lot of it came due to the Panthers game last year.

    Great strip, but man that's just going to keep encouraging him to not tackle properly.
  8. Saturday Night Football - Chargers vs Chiefs

    So bittersweet when Peters forces a fumble. It's a turnover, but it just encourages him to keep tackling like a moron.
  9. Chiefs vs Chargers GDT

    Agreed.
  10. Chiefs vs Chargers GDT

    Indeed I am. It's nice to see us looking competent again for two weeks in a row. Enough flashes of our old offense and our previous years of defense to give me some hope now.
  11. Saturday Night Football - Chargers vs Chiefs

    Reid isn't calling plays.
  12. Saturday Night Football - Chargers vs Chiefs

    Eh. In past years I might agree with you. This year, we've been a better passing team than running team recently. One of the biggest struggles in our losing streak was run blocking.
  13. Saturday Night Football - Chargers vs Chiefs

    It's called a Hill Mary.
  14. Chiefs vs Chargers GDT

    No reason that our offense shouldn't always be like this. A lot of runs to Hunt, a bunch of short to mid passes to Kelce, a deep bomb every quarter or half or so to Hill. Should be just that easy.
  15. Chiefs vs Chargers GDT

    Solid start so far by D and O. Nothing great, but neither look to be in their bad forms from various points in the season.
