Yes, I was a Pastor for quite awhile, I stepped down years ago, but still a church goer.

BTW, at the time, I had no idea who Reggie Jackson was.  It wasn't until years later when Baseball cards started growing in value that I actually looked through my cards and found it.

remember Reggie's rookie season 1968, well first full season with the A's.  Kid was full of hustle.  All around player.  Although, he always struck out a lot.

If Brady's graph was the top one, he'd be dead.
That’s not even a joke lol. 

Mahomes made a couple insane deep throws on the run- including one where he threw the ball while he was in the air falling to the ground that were accurate enough to be caught- my jaw literally dropped to the floor. 

I never thought in a million years we’d see another Aaron Rodgers- but that’s exactly who Mahomes reminds me of- just the bigger more athletic version with more arm strength. 

I always thought Elway and Marino were the best pure throwers of the football I’ve ever seen- but I think Rodgers and Mahomes have overtaken them both.

These two adonises beg to differ

 Mahomes has already made insane throws that Aaron Rodgers has not nor ever will make

such as a couple of those last night

the other one, was the throw that hit the pylon in the back of the endzone and hit his receiver in the hand while being tossed to the ground

Is it true that the streaker got more yards in the game than did Kansas City?

Yep, as I said last night the game might have gone a little differently if the KC defense wasn't committing stupid penalties and if the KC receivers had bailed Mahomes out by actually catching the well-thrown balls he was sending at them while he was running for his damn life. 

Note--not blaming the refs. The penalties were legitimate, but many of them came at REALLY inopportune times to extend TB drives. Especially the one where an away-from-the-play defensive holding call negated an interception, the PI on a Brady overthrown deep ball that set up the final TB TD in the first half, and the lining up in the neutral zone on a FG attempt that gave TB a first down instead (led to a TD as well IIRC). 

The dominance of the TB DL was as expected against a hampered KC OL. Mahomes was only sacked 3 times, which is a credit to his ability to escape and scramble--most QBs would have been dropped many more last night. Yet Mahomes was still making throws when pressured--his receivers just weren't catching the ball.

Evidently the call on Winfield was paying back Hill for taunts earlier in the year.Think my admiration for Mahomes is surpassed by skin crawling disgust for Hill.

this. have got to be the bigger man and not hurt the team. The ass whopping his team gave KC/Hill should've been enough for Winfield.

This. Mahomes is the only guy on that team I can even stomach. He's a Michigan guy- but Frank Clark is a turd, Chris Jones too, Mathieu is a whiny thug, Hill is a child beating sicko, and Kelce aka White Chocolate aka Malibu's Most Wanted is the biggest cornball of all-time. 

I have no idea how anybody could root for Kansas City. They are the most unlikeable team of all-time if you ask me. Nothing but classless showboats and thugs. Andy Reid basically just attracts women/child beaters and drug addicts- as long as they can win him football games- it's all good. 

Brady, Gronk, Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, Devin White, LaVonte David- now those are some stand-up guys.

I don't know man. Rodgers has made some INSANE throws himself. That one vs the Cowboys kills me every time.

Away from the play doesn't matter- defensive holding is defensive holding- and that was an egregious hold. If it was real close, ticky-tack bang-bang- I say let them play- but that was just really bad holding- it was a mugging. They have to call that all the time. The ones that bother me are the really ticky tack ones- I lean on the side of- let them play for the most part- but muggings cannot be accepted- and that was a straight up mugging.

The PI on Breeland against Evans was absolutely the right call all the way- Evans had him smoked and the guy tackled him. Watch the replay again in full speed and in slow mo. In full speed- looks like Evans could've possibly got to that ball- and after all he is 6'5" runs a 4.5, has a 40" vertical, has giant paws for hands and a long ass wingspan- there is no telling if he wasn't interfered with if he could've dove out for that ball and got his hands on it. It only looked uncatchable in the slow mo replay. During the play in real-time, to me- it looked like he might've actually been able to get to it. You have to call PI on that everytime- defender can't just dive at a players feet and shoestring tackle them when they get beat- which is exactly what Breeland did. Breeland was roasted and he flat out just took Evans' feet out. 

The penalty I had a problem with was the last one on that drive- where Mathieu got called for a PI in the end-zone- now that was uncatchable- Brady threw that out the back of the end-zone.
