  1. Matt Lane's film review is on Mike Remmers, who has played OG for us but is now playing RT. Lane thinks he's earning his pay. Here's part of his takeaway. https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2020/11/25/21673683/film-review-mike-remmers-holding-his-own-during-extended-stay-at-right-tackle-mitchell-schwartz-nfl Remmers will start two more games — perhaps more — at right tackle. It’s rare thing to replace an All-Pro tackle like Schwartz without missing a beat — but so far, Remmers has held up his end, perhaps even providing some small steps forward. As a run blocker, he’s been at least as good as Schwartz — specifically with his ability to function as a man or power blocker while moving just well enough to function in space No offense to Remmers' work at Rt. I would really like him at RG because Schwartz is back at RT. We have options on the left side, which is more teamwork oriented. Remmer and Schwartz are our best in isolation. J

  3. Jared Allen was one of our best draft choices ever, 4th round in 2004. We got four elite years from him, All-Pro in 2007, then traded him for a package of picks which turned into LT Branden Albert and RB Jamaal Charles (2008 was a good draft). He played eight more years, first with the Vikings, then three other teams. He is four times All-Pro, twice NFL leader in sacks and currently #12 on the all time sack list. He has advanced to semifinalist fore the NFL Hall of Fame. https://chiefswire.usatoday.com/2020/11/24/jared-allen-pro-football-hall-of-fame-2021-semifinalist-kansas-city-chiefs/ He was a real stud, but unhappy at the contract the Chiefs offered. It is a simple fact that first round picks will always make more money than fourth round picks of similar stature. When the Vikings made a good offer, a first and two third round picks, we pulled the trigger. Good as he was the picks proved more valuable. https://arrowheadaddict.com/2008/04/22/adios-one-man-gang-jared-allen-traded-to-vikings/ J
  4. After a difficult Sunday night game, we get one the toughest teams of the season. Tampa is not quite as highly ranked as they were a few weeks ago, partly due to a close loss to the Rams. Now 7-4, the Buccaneers present one of the elite defenses in the league and a competent offense, run by some guy they picked up from New England. FBO no longer makes their basic rankings available to the public, so I will discontinue using them. A consensus of power rankings would put Tampa Bay just outside the top 10. This week's Pride film review is of the defense. We did well against the run, but at cost of pressure on the QB. Spagnuolo committed and extra S to the box, meaning Thornhill was largely watching from the sideline. He's playing, but not that well yet. Although the team had only one sack, we did get fifteen QB pressures, which is decent and better than the first game. Also of note is the poor tackling, even by our mediocre previous standards. It seems the bye week mixed up a few things. https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2020/11/24/21612143/week-11-defensive-film-review-how-the-raiders-kept-the-chiefs-defense-reeling J
  5. No pennant race this time. It's noteworthy that AFC West as three QB's in FBO's top 10--Mahomes #1, Carr #4, Herbert #8. It is also noteworthy--and sad--the FBO has put even their basic material behind a paywall. You can only get stats for the top 3 and an ordered list. J
  6. I see that Thornhill had only 11 snaps. Essentially, he saw spot use, so he is not back yet. The whole roster is beaten up and the bye week did not change that basic fact. J
  7. We were talking about pass rush packages, though Wharton has been decent against the run. He's not big and needs to upgrade his strength, but his penetration is disruptive. J
  8. I'm not. Danna is going to be good at Edge. He just needs to get healthy and play some ball. Taco is good for situational use if he will take a contract we can afford. What will be really important is if Wharton can get consistent as a 3 tech. A Clark/Wharton/Jones/Danna line could bring it from all four slots. J
  9. Herbert is a good rookie. The Chargers are not a good team, yet. J
  10. At the very least, there is another good team in the division. J
  11. There was a stat a few weeks back that Chiefs have better percentage scoring a TD on drives of 90+ yards than any other team has of 50+ yards. I wonder what it is now. J
  12. Butker is 5/5 on XP to make the difference in the game. J
  13. Damn. I wish they wouldn't wait til the last minute like this. My doctor worries about my blood pressure. J
