Would have been more fitting driving backwards and to the extreme right.

Man was I wrong about the Celtics drafting Tatum. I had figured he was essentially a duplicate of Hayward and thought they would be better off drafting a complementary player with better defensive skills. He has really turned into one of the league's premier 2 way players.

Hoping Bouwmeester is ok. Earlier last year it looked like he was done but sure rediscovered his game and has been a big part of the Blues recent success.

As for Garrett perhaps he has learned a lesson and plays within the bounds of the game. He has generational level talent and I'd hate to see him become the next Burfict.

Jordan is a career scumbag .. and model member of his political party.

Kansas City Chiefs Win Super Bowl 0x36

How is he still blacklisted?

Old backwards rich white owners want it that way.

Personally I think we should blacklist the owners and whitelist Kaep.

Kansas City Chiefs Win Super Bowl 0x36

I don't know whether Tom Brady should retire or not, but I definitely know that Richard Sherman should

Really? Find me a corner who can cover man to man for 15 seconds with Mahomes dropping 20 yards back to let receivers get open ... there aren't any in today's NFL. The 49ers defensive scheme is to press receivers at the line and get pressure on the QB. They did this well until Mahomes decided to take matters into his own hands. Not another QB in the league who can drop 20 yards back from scrimmage and hit receivers on the fly 55 yards away on the run. KC's offense is much better across the board when Mahomes is doing his thing on a broken play than they are executing the called play.

The Chiefs certainly represented the Great State of Kansas well Yes, weller than probably any other team from Kansas in history.

Watched the highlights on YouTube. Zion is going to be a load if he can continue hitting the 3. Guys don't like to get in on him, because he's 285 and all muscle, and he'll tear pretty much any defender apart in a physical game. Unstoppable.

the Chiefs wouldn't see Mostert until partway through the second quarter

Mostert WAS part of a running back by committee in SF. He took on a primary role in the conference championship only because of injuries to the other RBs.

Hoping there is someone out there in AB's circle that can help him find direction.

Binge watched the Aaron Hernandez documentary over the past 2 nights. Certainly painted his whole situation as a result of a perfect storm with the effects of CTE, loss of a role model at a critical time, getting in with the wrong crowd, and concerns about sexuality. He was clearly a personality who urgently needed strong mentorship and received none once his father passed. Ultimately he made one bad choice after another with those closest to him, including the Hurricanes and Patriots organizations, doing nothing to help him even though it was clearly evident he was in dire need.

Luke Kuechly Retires from NFL at 28

Loved watching him as he gave everything on every play. But also saw 2 games that he had to leave that didn't look good. I hope he got out early enough to enjoy a healthy life.

2 questions:

1. Who is on left / right?

2. When are you guys going to host the first annual Spofi conference on Kona?

There is no way in hell that Tennessee can beat Kansas City, right? Right?!

There certainly is. KC isn't great at stopping the run, 26th best versus Baltimore who Tenn shredded at 6th, and Tennessee is the best running team in decades. KC's offense needs touches to heat up. If KC goes 3 and out in a few early possessions Tenn has a great chance to run run run and use up the clock.

The game might end up being a reenactment of the Bills - Giants Super Bowl

Exactly. Giants had a 40.5 to 19.5 time of possession that game. Giants that year also beat the favored 49ers by running the ball and keeping the 49ers offense off of the field and getting a few huge turnovers from their defense.
