Hey all - 

Troy aka Yellowfin passed away suddenly early Tuesday morning from a heart attack. He had a great last night spending time with family and looking at wedding photos as he recently got married to his long time girlfriend. 

I met Troy on the Huddle Board, we instantly hit it off and he became my friend, briefly my roommate, Chiefs Game watch party buddy and eventually my best friend. First game we watched together was Trent Green getting a lobotomy and the last game we watched together was the Chiefs Super Bowl victory. Troy, being the guy he was, hosted a Super Bowl party and flew in KC BBQ. When the clock hit 0:00 we hugged, cried, played "We are the Champions" at maximum volume (Troy was a home theater enthusiast so his speakers went boom) while drunkenly singing along with Freddy Mercury but completely out of tune and sprayed champagne all over his front yard. I'm sure the 49ers and Chargers fans there were not pleased. But we didn't care, it was our moment and it's a moment that will be with me for the rest of my life. I'm so glad he got to experience our sports fandom equivalent of scaling Everest before he left us.

Troy was a selfless and generous person. He gave much more than he ever took. He loved his son, his grandson, his wife, jet skis, his Tesla (he would want me to tell you all that even though he had a Tesla he was not a "far-left wing lib"), Bud Light, deep sea fishing, trips to the casino on a whim, body boarding, and of course our KC Chiefs. 

I know that Yellow or I haven't posted much here in the past few years but I'm sure a lot of you old timers remember him. He'll be missed.

Russell Wilson is now a Denver Bronco. Broncos reportedly gave up two 1sts, two 2nds, a 5th, Noah Fant, Shelby Harris, and Drew Lock for Wilson and a 4th.

The Chiefs didn't end their season the way wanted to, but that doesn't mean their window is closing. Let's look at their cap situation.

With a little massaging the Chiefs can enter free agency with anywhere from their current $14.2M to $59M after just 3 moves (cut Hitchens, cut Clark, restructure Mahomes) or more depending upon which players they want to keep or restructure.

So while there's a lot of other optional work they could do that would save them some cap in 2022, like extending Tyreek, even without that they should have the money to do a lot of what they want with guys like Mathieu and Orlando Brown Jr. BTW, if you're worried about restructuring Mahomes so soon his contract is really designed with this in mind.

In the draft as things stand the Chiefs have 9 total picks:
Round 1 - #30
Round 2 - #62
Round 3 - #94
Round 3 - #102
Round 4 - #133
Round 7 - #230
Round 7 - #240
Round 7 - #248
Round 7 - #259

This is of course before compensatory picks. For example, Ryan Poles' departure would lead to an estimated 3rd round pick.

Free Agency:

I'll examine all of this more deeply later.

Bengals Fans: Why not us?
[Patrick Mahomes sharpening his scythe in the shadows behind them]

This Sunday at 2pm we have another opportunity to witness greatness and yet another opportunity at revenge for the Chiefs. Records are made to get rekt.

Not only is KC the first team to host a conference championship game for 4 straight years (suck on that Brady fanboys), further proving the Chiefs as the gatekeepers of the AFC, they have gotten every team's best shot in the process. The Bengals can't say that. Now they're going to see what happens when we're every bit if not even more motivated.

I hope the Bengals fans have had fun. I hope they just view it as playing with house money and that they have a bright future, especially compared to recent decades. Because if they think that they're truly ready to step to the king they're about to learn otherwise.

"But the Bengals beat the Chiefs in the regular season!"
Tell that to the Bills.

"But Burrow has been amazing!"
Tell that to Josh Allen.

But nothing. Bring it.

The Chiefs had years of being kinda good before getting to where they are. Years of beating eventual Super Bowl champs and losing in the playoffs. Years of "Watch out next year". The Bengals might get there quicker because they've got the QB figured out, but they're also just as likely to fizzle out when his soul gets dislocated from his body because they are putting up a pathetic offensive line. They are not going to beat us scoring 1 TD and allowing 9 damn sacks.

The Chiefs have a perfect opportunity to right some wrongs from the regular season. Next on the docket, the Buffalo Bills on Sunday evening.

I had a bunch of stuff planned to type for this, but I've got other things to do. I might try to type something some other day.

Wildcard, bitches!

A few short weeks ago the Chiefs utterly embarrassed the Steelers in entirely undramatic fashion. The game wasn't in question from the moment the Chiefs were up 14-0 and the defense even threatened a shutout well into the 3rd quarter. This is despite the Chiefs missing a number of key pieces due to Covid infections / protocols. The final stats weren't flattering for the Steelers and even then didn't tell the whole story.

Now this time it really matters. The Chiefs being the #2 seed means they get the honor of facing a team that less than a handful of years ago wouldn't even be in the playoffs and no one would shed a tear outside of the Steeler faithful. A team that's merely here because they did the NFL version of kissing their sister and ended a game in a tie against the lowly Lions.

This is a new game, the score is 0-0 with a full 60 minutes to go. The turnover margin is +/-0 right now, not +3 Chiefs. The Chiefs can't just assume they show up and win. They need to take the attitude that won the game against the Steelers back with them.

In the Mahomes era the Chiefs haven't had to play a true road playoff game. There's a strong possibility that streak continues through this postseason. Being the #2 seed the Chiefs will host this weekend, would host next weekend if they win, and could host their record 4th straight AFC Championship Game if they win and the Titans lose,

The Chiefs may have fucked up their best, easiest path to a championship, but they are miles from out of it and have an outside shot at the #1 seed still (root for the Texans). Every team in the AFC playoff picture is flawed, but at least the Chiefs can say they were in all the games they lost except one and they didn't lose to some turd like the Texans or Jets or both.

I'll go ahead and say it, the Titans would be one of the weakest #1 seeds ever. They are merely a .500-ish team without Henry aided heavily by a weak schedule while their star was out and their fans are morons if they think he's just going to dominate immediately off of a serious injury. It often takes players 5 or 6 games to get their legs back underneath them and feel confident in their running. It's like they're trying to turn him into Eddie George and grind him into dust.

This is potentially a worst case scenario for my pocket book. If the Chiefs are the #2 seed they don't get a bye and might still host the AFC Championship game. Potentially 3 playoff games is a lot of dough to shell out, especially since they are more expensive than regular season games. I'll take that scenario in a heartbeat since it means the Chiefs are in the AFCCG again, it just might mean I'm eating rice and beans for a while. I'd much rather they get that #1 seed, have an easier path, and of lesser importance save me some money.

The Broncos-Chiefs game got moved to a Saturday 3:30 kickoff. Just as well get an extra day's rest heading into the playoffs, especially if we're playing that Wild Card weekend. Texans-Titans is a regular noon Sunday game. Don't know why the league did them such a favor that they could potentially rest their starters if we lost (we won't), but screw it since we ostensibly benefit as well. Let's roll! Go Chiefs!

Major playoff implications may still be on the line, but thanks in part to a laughable performance by the Bolts against the Texans, the Chiefs have earned their 6th consecutive AFC West Division Championship.

The Bengals are coming off of a deliberate score running up domination against the Ravens, trying to ruin my fantasy team (still hanging on by a thread, tonight matters). If the Chiefs win they are all but assured the #1 seed. If the Bengals win they very likely win their division.

This isn't an easy game, but nobody is hotter than the Chiefs right now, even the Bengals.

After a hard fought battle against what we now know for certain is our closest division foe, the seas have parted for the Chiefs and now they control their own destiny with only 3 games left. Even if the Chiefs lost a game, I'm not sure any of the other front runners would win their remaining games.

Everyone is flawed, but at least with the Chiefs all of the teams they lost to could be playoff teams and there's been marked improvement in the team since. Although, technically even a team like the Ravens would be on the outside looking in if the playoffs started today.

It really was amazing watching throughout the weekend as everything came up Millhouse. Patriots lose. Titans lose. Ravens lose.

Now the Chiefs face the Steelers. Another deeply flawed yet dangerous team. The Steelers are actively fighting for their slim playoff hopes. They average giving up 367.5 vs. 317.5 yards on offense. Sounds like they're fortunate to have the record they do.
