kansas city is going to the super bowl
The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Tennessee Titans in the AFC Championship Game to advance to Super Bowl LIV. They finally did after fifty years.
Lamar Jackson may be the league MVP (and he deserves it), but Pat Mahomes is the best player in the NFL. Period.
Tight end Travis Kelce seems extremely excited as well, and I wish to have this type of energy about just about everything.
san francisco is also going to the Super Bowl
The San Francisco 49ers dominated the Green Bay Packers, who honestly didn't look like they even showed up, to secure a 37-20 win and a trip to Super Bowl LIV. Cornerback Richard Sherman sealed the deal with this game-winning interception.
fattest guy touchdown
Tennessee Titans offensive lineman Dennis Kelly accomplished something that can't be erased with an L, and should be nationally celebrated. He became the heaviest player in NFL history to score a postseason touchdown. King shit.
Kelly is 321 pounds, and this particular touchdown gave the Titans a short-lived 14-0 lead in Sunday's game.
raheem Mostert makes history
The San Francisco 49ers running back ran for 160 yards and three touchdowns in the first half of Sunday's NFC Championship Game, drawing a 27-0 lead over the Green Bay Packers. Mostert then became the first player in NFL history with over 200 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns in a postseason game.
Mostert took on a heavy workload after running back Tevin Coleman was declared out of the game with an arm injury.
phil rivers has shipped out of san diego
Current (but not for long) Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers informed ESPN's Adam Schefter that himself and his giant family have moved out of San Diego to retire to Florida. Ok, I added the retire part.
Rivers has said recently he doesn't want to retire, and is open to playing for another team. I think this move 100% points to the fact that the Chargers are moving on from him, but I still tend to think he leans toward retirement.
joe woods to (probably) become new browns dc
The Cleveland Browns are replacing defensive coordinator Steve Wilks with San Francisco 49ers defensive backs coach Joe Woods, as soon as the Niners' season is over.
Not a bad hire. But it is the Browns, so it's basically like throwing a deck of cards into the air and guessing what you're gonna pick up first.
stunner: Luke Kuechly retires
Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly announced his retirement on Tuesday night, saying he knew it was "the right thing to do."
I lost count of how many concussions he's had, so it's probably for the best, but the league is a better place with Kuechly in it. His parting resume includes five first-team All-Pro selections, Defensive Rookie of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, and if you're into that sort of thing, seven Pro Bowl nods.
As I said on Twitter, it is really hard to think about yourself and do what's best for yourself, not only at a young age, but in a team-centered sport. Good for him.
joe brady leaves lsu for panthers
LSU's passing game coordinator Joe Brady is making his return to the NFL with the Carolina Panthers as their offensive coordinator.
Brady was previously with the New Orleans Saints for two seasons, before taking the job at LSU. Can't wait for all the "Joe Burrow to Panthers" rumors to start. Or have they already started?
antonio gates calls it quits
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Antonio Gates announced on Tuesday that he's retiring from the NFL.
Quite a nice resume for him: Eight Pro Bowl nods and the most touchdown catches by a tight end in the NFL. Not bad for sixteen seasons.
For what it's worth, I wouldn't be surprised if his teammate QB Philip Rivers isn't too far behind (even though he said he wasn't).
the chicago bears are moving
No, not like that. The team will hold their 2020 training camp in Halas Hall this year. I have no idea what that is, to be honest, so thankfully there are people to explain it to me.
jags need a new offensive COORDINATOR.
On Monday, the Jacksonville Jaguars mutually parted ways (supposedly) with offensive coordinator John DeFilippo after just one season.
This is kind of unexpected, as he did a pretty good job with rookie QB Gardner Minshew this past season. Is it possible he was Tom Couglin's guy and they just wanted to completely start over?
lions hire a new defensive coordinator
The Detroit Lions have some fresh blood -- former Philadelphia Eagles defensive backs coach Cory Undlin.
Anyone want to tell Matt Patricia that hiring your buddies to work with you doesn't always work out?
kansas city is heading to the afc championship
I don't know how I can possibly write any words about this game. It was bananas. Things started off quick for the Houston Texans and then shit hit the fan, hard. Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs erased a 24-point deficit, and ended up winning 51-31, in probably one of the craziest games I've ever seen.
