The first two weeks I opened spitting a little fire at the enemy, so I guess it's time for me to lay into the Ravens.

First off, after at least a decade of hearing how amazing your GM is he had to leave before the braintrust of your team collectively realized Joe Flacco was neither elite nor worth keeping around. Not in 2015 either, but in 2019. That's the mark of a killer front office if I've ever seen one.

Props on targeting the worst QB talent evaluator in the world to dump him off though. There may be hope yet for whoever the hell isn't actually Ozzie Newsome. Wikipedia says it's Eric DeCosta that's their GM now, but they could have told me it was some made up sounding bullshit like OJ Brigance, but apparently that's their senior advisor of player development.

I traveled a long way for that joke, I'm keeping it no matter how much of a non-joke it is.

Other than that they're a statistical fucking marvel. Lamar Jackson has been most impressive, both running and passing. There's very little to argue with. THEY'VE GOT THE BEST OFFENSE AND 2ND BEST DEFENSE*, WE'RE SCREWED!!! THE BCS COMPUTERS LOVE THEM!!!

However, to use a powerful quote from Delanie Walker of the Titans after defeating the much hyped Browns in week 1, "They are who we thought they were. Y'all can crown 'em if you want. Crown 'em. Still got to play football." Man, who knew Delanie Walker was such a wordsmith? It stirs the soul. Glad they didn't let them off the hook.

If games were about amassing volume stats the Chargers might have won 3 SBs in the last decade. But instead, there's no need to crown them the God Kings of Imaginationland, because there's really only a couple stats that matter. What you get in garbage time doesn't matter whether you are winning or losing. You aren't a better team because the Dolphins put their asses on a silver platter for you.

(Seriously, watch this video. Not much to do with this game, but makes tons of fun of the Chargers.)

I would love to make fun of the Ravens more, but it's difficult to. They're off to an awesome start. So are we, but I can't really play victim when we're favored by -6.5 against a very good team. And that's the point I was getting to. We'll see it all on the field soon enough. I think a ton of their statistics on paper are just that, on paper.

*Relax, it's 2 games. Small sample size. They haven't exactly beaten juggernauts. Neither have we, but we're more proven. Yadda yadda.

Just a couple thoughts on some of the other games today. Really I'm mostly making this so we've got a thread for the year.

Browns dismantled by Titans
I'm legit happy to see the Browns lose. I was sick of all of the media attention they were getting, the fact their offense was being compared to ours, and that they were being considered a legit SB contender after not even making the playoffs last year. In the NFL a focused average team can dominate a better team that's not as centered. The Browns were that team last year on multiple occasions. They needed a humbling.

This was a competitive game most of the day, but like Gladiator from the Marvel comics the Browns started to fold as their confidence waned.

The AFC South is a mess of middling teams, so the Titans got a legit shot to represent them in the playoffs if they start out with an early lead and everyone just beats up on eachother.

Chargers graze by the Luckless Colts in OT
The Colts have a decent roster, but the whole allure to them as a potential playoff team was Andrew Luck at QB. Brissett isn't a terrible emergency starter, but it's still clear it changes their entire approach to offense. Even knowing this, the Chargers couldn't stop Mack from running all over them, 25 carries for 174 yards.

In regulation the Colts outgained them while overcoming a 9-24 deficit. In fact the Chargers offense didn't score from halfway through the 3rd until OT. But the Chargers pulled it out.

The stigma about the Chargers before last year was simply that they lose games they shouldn't. Last year and one game into this year they're winning games they shouldn't. They're going to be our toughest threat in the division, but they didn't really look like a force in this game.

Pats Demolish Steelers
Tom Brady is an unending Lich siphoning power from the orphans he grinds up into TB12 vitamins. I will be every bit as happy when he retires and/or falls off a cliff as I was with Peyton Manning. I've been more of a defender than a hater of TB over the years, but I'm just goddamn sick of the Pats.

Steelers all but officially suck now. Should be interesting to see how they play against their division now.

Cards and Lions Tie
I didn't watch any of this game or even highlights yet so my only comment is... really? Let's not become soccer, NFL. Ties are lame.

It was a real damned shame that Hard Knocks is over, because one more week would have resulted in some hilarious, childish television.

So we had some stupid multi-million dollar investigation into deflated footballs, but the league isn't going to look into whether there was any sort of collusion in between AB's frostbitten asshole and team rub 'n tug? The NFL is a real fucking joke sometimes.

One of the best things about AB leaving is not only their fans having spent all offseason drooling over him, even their coaches said their offense looks a ton worse without him. They can't pretend they're a better product on the field without him, even though they're right his diva ass isn't worth the trouble.

I can't wait to see some outright bad football tomorrow between the Faiders and Donks. I don't even care that one of them is going to win. Their inflated egos will be hilarious to crush too, but whichever team loses most likely knows an 8-8 season would be a relative success at that point.

No word yet on any roster cuts yet alone the 53 man roster, but some related news nonetheless.

The Chiefs have traded UDFA CB Mark Fields to the Vikings. No word yet on compensation, but getting anything out of a UDFA is almost universally a good thing.

EDIT: Conditional 2021 7th round pick, probably based on being on the roster through 2019 or a certain number of weeks.

Talking to some J.A.G.s fans online (both of them) really makes me want to bring back my "Why the Chiefs Will Win" blogs from years back. Instead I'll just share a couple smack talking tidbits.

Shit Jaguars Fans Say:

1. Foles is better than Bortles, therefore Chiefs will lose.

A common theme from Jacksonville douches is that all of their ills land on Blake Bortles. Don't get me wrong, Bortles is a significant anchor to help bring any boat underwater, but they're ignoring a lot of other holes. They were never on the cusp of being competitive last year. The Chiefs were ahead 23-0 before Jacksonville showed any life. ESPN calculated it as an 87.1% win probability for the Chiefs at the start of the 2nd quarter. Even with a lucky onside kick recovery 30-14 and a mountain of pure gahbage stats to make it look closer was the best they could do.

[Image: ImpeccableInexperiencedCottonmouth-size_restricted.gif]

Also, you aren't asking Foles to helm a confident team already well on its way to the playoffs. You're asking Foles to resuscitate a broken team that was in open revolt with itself. At the first sign of adversity, that defense will be thinking "not this shit again!"

And above all, the only math that matters is Mahomes > Foles. That is obvious.

2. Jags Defense was just tired. They are elite!

Yes, they are elite. Also, it doesn't matter because our offense is in the All-Time neighborhood. Their defense wasn't tired on drive 1, but that didn't stop the Chiefs from having a 10 play, 73 yard TD drive to open the game. Next Chiefs drive was 14 plays, 82 yards and a FG. Chiefs already established from moment one they could basically do what they wanted to the Jags. Bortles didn't have a single turnover yet.

Also, the Jaguars actually ran far more plays, 83 vs. 69 (nice!) for the Chiefs. So the "tired defense" excuse is both tired itself and nonsensical. What's stopping the Chiefs from just killing nearly 12 minutes of clock in the first 2 drives again? The same defense minus a couple key players?

3. Jalen Ramsey is going to shut down Tyreek!
Ramsey didn't cover Hill all game like he supposedly will this time, but he actually did pretty well being honest, save for one big play. Ramsey was sucking wind by the 3rd quarter, so his ass was there to be had if we needed it late like a closing time booty call, but we had already ran roughshod over them. Can you really brag about shutting down one receiver whenever you give up 313 yards passing in basically 3 quarters?

That's the whole point of our offense. It's pick your poison, so unless you're immune to iocane powder you're screwed. You can't cover Hill AND Kelce AND Watkins AND so on...

So, screw off Jags fans. Also, I hate to break this to you, the NFL doesn't like you well enough to do any favors to make it easier on you if a hurricane comes your way. You'll get screwed because as far as they're concerned you'll be the London Blackknights within 5 years.

This will hopefully keep me from hijacking other threads to talk about this shit.

Anyway, drafting 10th in my rookie dynasty draft--Mike Singletary or Justice Hill?  I already have Lamar Jackson (backup to Mahomes) and Gus Edwards (Maybe backup to Mark Ingram), so there's some wisdom in grabbing Hill, I guess, but I think I like Singeltary's situation (McCoy--candidate to be a cap casualty--and Frank Gore ahead of him) better than Hill's.

So i didnt watch the game but I saw a clip of the first pass by mahomes where it just lands perfectly in kelces hands right out in front of a defender. Mahomes could have walked off the field immediately after that and everyone would have still been put on alert that hes coming back for another mvp.

Sorry, didn’t see a training camp thread yet, so thought I’d start one, because today did effectively end the offseason, right?

Anyone go today?  I heard that Tyreek got a huge cheer from the crowd.  Anyway, keep me up to date on camp, I rely on you all to give me the updates.
