  1. Week 3 GDT: Kansas City Chiefs vs San Francisco 49ers

    I was just comparing those stated teams. Each of the teams you mention in the above quote have a win or wins. That's all that matters to me in this early part of the season.
  2. Week 3 GDT: Kansas City Chiefs vs San Francisco 49ers

    The Chargers have a win, the Steelers do not. Perhaps that is too black & white for some, but that is the way I see it.
  3. Week 3 GDT: Kansas City Chiefs vs San Francisco 49ers

    Perhaps, but who have they played? Sure, we played the lowly Lions, but we also played a play-off favorite in the Vikings. KC has played the Chargers and Steelers...not particularly tough schedule thus far. And yet their D is ranked last?! This may be an opportunity for Jimmy G!
  4. Around the NFL

    I don't know about you, but it's because I am a Sooner! Mayfield is too--even if he does call Austin home. I will always be a Mayfield fan...just cannot/will not wear that ugly orange! (need the barfing emoji!)
  5. Show me the money!, say 20 Hall of Famers

    What's more is the average rookie makes somewhere around $400,000 per year....that's 8 times the annual average American salary. If they put away (save or invest) just 10-20% of that each year...they won't need a pension either! They really warrant no sympathy from anyone, really. Now if you go back before they signed multi-million dollar contracts or made 6 figures a year...THEN we can perhaps talk about hardship.
  6. Week 3 GDT: Kansas City Chiefs vs San Francisco 49ers

    Let's not break tradition! Just Kidding, of course! In fact, I want to win soooooooo badly...hate losing streaks and we have one in KC (well, I went to a preseason game in '04 and we won...for whatever that's worth).
  7. Show me the money!, say 20 Hall of Famers

    What it really boils down to is fiscal responsibility. In other words, don't spend more than you make. If players did that, they could retire as multi-millionaires very easily. They wouldn't even need a pension.
  8. Show me the money!, say 20 Hall of Famers

    Did you read the entire thread? I have stated at least twice (and now 3 times) that EVERY player who accrues a minimum of THREE years on an NFL team (actual team player, not practice squad) gets a full pension at retirement age (that's when pensions kick in and not until then). Some are behaving as though there is no pension in the NFL. There is a pension for EVERY PLAYER with at least 3 years on a team. The pension is there. It is. I promise.
  9. Show me the money!, say 20 Hall of Famers

    Nice to know Kurt Warner and Jerry Rice were not in on this...looks like Dickerson went off without checking with some people.
  10. Show me the money!, say 20 Hall of Famers

    Oh, yes, I had forgotten about Congressional pensions...ridiculous.
  11. Show me the money!, say 20 Hall of Famers

    Every player who accrues at least 3 years in the league gets a FULL PENSION. It's already there! There is nothing else the NFL or NFLPA are legally required to do. As I said before, where else can you work for THREE years and get a FULL PENSION?!
  12. PIT WR Antonio Brown skips Monday practice

    Oh boy! Looks like Tomlin gets to have fun putting out fires...of course, winning could make this all go away. IF they could win.
  13. Show me the money!, say 20 Hall of Famers

    Wow. Just coming off as a bunch of ingrates. What other profession gives EVERY player a full pension after only THREE years of being in the league?! Many of those guys made MILLIONS while playing...let's be financially responsible, shall we?
  14. Week 2 GDT: Detroit Lions At San Francisco 49ers

    I'm glad we didn't. Doesn't look like we really put effort in either.
  15. Week 2 GDT: Detroit Lions At San Francisco 49ers

    Jimmy thinking too much? Gotta clean that up. Especially if he had anywhere close to the 6 seconds mentioned... OL doing it's job! Time for Jimmy to decide. No one open? Throw it away.
