    Getting him in by the time they play the Chargers and/or Raiders seems like a must now.
    I wouldn't risk Mahomes. Even if its a tight playoff deal. This is your long term superstar QB. He needs to sit and make sure his knee is 100% . Mahomes gutted it out with a bad ankle for weeks and he nearly blew his knee out.

    Matt Moore is a good enough QB to go 2-2 if not 3-1 with this Chiefs team so they should rest Mahomes as long as possible. I had lots of chances to watch Moore the last 5-7 years on the Dolphins and he's better than his stats / win-loss record would indicate there given how dysfunctional the Dolphins were around him and especially in his last two years with Adam "throws screen passes every other play" Gase calling the plays. He's not afraid to throw downfield and Andy Reid has proven over and over that he can make any QB look good.

    Yeah, Andy Reid can't do to Mahomes what Shanahan did to RG3 in DC

    So with RB's like Bell and Gordon who have held out for a season or half a season ; a story not many bring up is the John Riggins story. RIGGO as he was nicknamed was a big battering ram of a RB for the Redskins back when they actually had great ownership . Riggins was one of the 1st big free agents who was signed in 1976 (the Jets was paying him $60,000+ a year , Washington gave him $1.5 million over 5 seasons !).

    In 1980 Riggins wanted a new deal and Washington refused to redo his contract. So he went home . By 1981 though Joe Gibbs was head coach and wanted to bring Riggo back at 1st. Then he met him and detailed that Riggins told him , "You get me back , ill make you famous." Gibbs thought Riggins was an egomaniac and was thinking as soon as Riggins did sign to come back he would trade him away.

    Then comically he called Gibbs days later and said he had 1 issue with his new contract. He wanted a NO TRADE CLAUSE.

    Gibbs signed him and soon enough Riggo would come back and put together some fine final seasons as a RB and powered the Redskins to the Super Bowl.

    That was all 3 of them involved in that situation.


    - Shanahan should have taken it in his head to bench RGIII to not risk him.

    - From what Dr. James Andrews claimed , RGIII came off the field , walked by them and wouldn't let them look at his knee and walked back onto field as they couldn't get him off. Shanahan claims Andrews cleared him to go back. Both disagree.

    - RGIII was worried over what Kirk Cousins was doing with the team. He was hurt clearly and worried more about his job security than his health ; risking himself.


    In all , Redskins medical on sideline , Shanahan and RGIII all played a hand in that.

    My gut says every win KC gets is another week of rest for Mahomes.

    If they have 0 wins when the LAC game comes around, I have a hunch they start him.

    MY wish is that they flat-out announce he will start 12/1 against the Raiders. But that means teams get to game plan without having to worry about Mahomes and Reid is one the coaches that likes to play injury games on teams.

    Cardinals GM: 'We are not trading Patrick Peterson'

    Yeah, and the Jaguars said they weren't trading Jalen Ramsey, and that proclamation came from the owner. But when an offer Jacksonville couldn't resist came along from the Rams, Ramsey was gone on the first thing smoking, and the same will happen with Peterson. It's only a question of what team and when.

    I listened to a whole interview with Steve Keim this morning. They straight up asked him since the bar for Ramsey was set at 2 first rounders and a fourth rounder, if that meant he would do it for THREE first round picks.

    Keim said emphatically not, and he's not entertaining offers from any team who has called him.

    One of the big differences between Ramsey and Peterson is... Peterson has been showing up to practice, and isn't feigning an injury to avoid working with the team.

    From what has been claimed KC during their busy off-season offered Arizona a 2nd rd pick for Peterson right after they got Frank Clark from Seattle. Arizona turned it down and KC moved on.
