    At the way they keep promoting him, I expect him to add minority owner to his title long before they fire him.

    Bad coach who gets outreached when games matter...check
    Given temp GM job and immediately takes WAY too much for an average to slightly below averag LT...check
    Given permanent say on personnel and immediately trades their best player and more for a washed up RB...check

      Haha, that is true.

        No doubt about that. I would have taken him at 11 if he was still there. For this season he's the perfect addition and compliment to that offense. If they win two straight they might not care about the pick down the road.

          So... they're started tanking for Trevor Lawrence early. Check

            Sure he can run the whole route tree but that’s just gravy. I imagine it’s hard to resist going to him every play

            Great point. I'm sure teams have tried it, but I'd be tempted to try and play a cover 2 man shell with the DB pressing Hill. Ofcourse the problem with cover 2 man is that it leaves you wide open against QBs that can run, and Mahomes can exploit that.

              That's a brutal penalty to take, because they had the play covered and the pick regardless. I haven't watched much of the game, but that has to be Mahomes worst decision tonight. I can't imagine a worse one.

                But I concur, KC has paid out some big time contracts for the guys they like, so I am the same page as to how they will deal with long term salary caps.

                The bad news....one of my fantasy opponents has Edwards-Helaire.

                  I would always line up right over Tyreek Hill around the goal line, and then get massive inside leverage when Mahomes looks away. All they ever do with him is run drags in the red zone, and then it's just a track meet, and you're screwed.

                    And then you have a mismatch with Kelce against whoever. Plus with the rest of the track team you can just run a bunch of crossers and catch people in a foot race

                      Not sure it's been mentioned, butI don't like that fans are in some games and not others. I think it should be uniform league wide, either everyone can have fans (limited by local restrictions) or no one can have fans.

                        But I concur, I am not sure how KC will manage their long term salary caps, based on the big payouts to the guys they covet.

                        And what's with Watkins?? Is his best game of the year going to be his first one, two years in a row??

                          Yep. That's the pick your poison nature of their offense. They can beat you in a lot of ways. I think their biggest question will again be defense. If they play like they did in the playoffs, this team is extremely tough to beat. If the defense regresses to what they were in previous seasons, then they'll have a tough time because of the constant need to outscore the opponent.

                            David Johnson has looked good. He’s definitely a step slower. I know he’s been hurt but I don’t think anything lower body wise. Good to see him figuring it out how to be productive without that extra top gear

                              There aren’t a lot of big names on that defense but I’m a firm believer in Safeties being the most important part of a defense. Matthieu is one of the best right now and when you add in an interior presence like Jones, you can throw a bunch of guys around them and those two will do enough to pull it out.

                              I hate it

                                Yeah, he's slower, but he looks good. Definitely better than the tail end of last season. He's giving Houston exactly what they needed. Not so much on Cooks so far.
