Raiders-Ravens injury report: Rodney Hudson returns to practice

There is good news for the Oakland Raiders in today's injury report, but there is also some bad news. The good news is that Rodney Hudson, their centerpiece to their offensive line, has returned to limited action in practice after not participating yesterday. However, the bad news is that starting right tackle Menelik Watson has not been able to participate in practice this week and neither has top backup right tackle Austin Howard. With neither one being able to practice this week it leaves both of their availabilities in doubt for Sunday against the Ravens. Baltimore on the other hand is...

LaDainian Tomlinson puts his foot in his mouth (again)

Former San Diego Chargers RB LaDainian Tomlinson has once again said the wrong thing just to make a headline. This time, his target is Philip Rivers. Most professional athletes don’t know what to do once their athletic careers is over. It makes sense. They’ve been playing sports since a very young age, probably as long as they can remember, and their entire life was built around it. Then, suddenly, POOF! The career is gone, the ability to play is gone, and you have to go figure out how to live the second half of your life. Some figure it out. Many end up in the media, as LaDainian...

Chiefs are without both starting corners at Thursday’s practice

Is it good to have both of your starting corners out of practice three days before the game? No, it is not. The Kansas City Chiefs better hope Marcus Peters gets over the flu and Phillip Gaines’ sore knee heals up because they were both out of practice on Thursday. Phillip Gaines, Tamba Hali, Marcus Peters and Charcandrick West won't practice today for the #Chiefs.— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) September 29, 2016 Unless this is some flu strain that cannot be stopped, I would think Peters will be OK by Sunday. That’s three more days of rest for him. I’m not going to be too...

Deion Sanders says Marcus Peters reminds him of Dale Carter

I’ve heard this comparison before and I don’t totally disagree but I just listened to NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders tell Danny Parkins and Carrington Harrison on 610 Sports that KC Chiefs CB Marcus Peters reminds him of ... Dale Carter! For you young bucks, Dale Carter was the Chiefs 1992 first round pick who played corner in Kansas City until 1998. “I love the way he puts his foot in the ground and goes to get that ball,” Deion said on The Drive. “He reminds me even on the field and off the field as a young Dale Carter. He’s long. He has those types of tools. I don’t know...

2016 NFL Power Rankings Consensus: Week 4

Before the season even started, many were laughing at the prospects of Carson Wentz leading the Eagles to any sort of success. When Teddy Bridgewater's knee exploded, many were writing eulogies about the 2016 Vikings season. Who's laughing now? Where are those obituaries? There's a narrative emerging in the national media: are the Eagles for real? The very question introduces some doubt in their 3-0 start. The conventional wisdom being, "there's no way they can be this good. Carson Wentz? Really?" Conversely, heading into the season, people were very high on the Vikings this year; and then...

Grading the Kansas City Chiefs (and my road trip to Arrowhead)

So as some of you (maybe most of you) know, Mrs. MNchiefsfan and I took a road trip to Arrowhead this last weekend to experience the... er... experience that was the Jets-Chiefs game. It was fantastic. And what’s a good road trip without some grades? We’re going to skip the usual in-depth analysis and instead grade everything (from food, to football) from A-F, in the roughly the order we experienced it. Driving through Iowa: B- This is a surprisingly high grade. Generally speaking, Iowa receives quite low grades from me and Mrs. MNchiefsfan as we drive through. This is because we...

Start ‘em, Sit ‘em: Chargers vs. Saints

Sunday’s Chargers and Saints game will be a shootout. Find out who to start and sit, and a super sleeper for Sunday’s match. The Chargers look to rebound this week as they host a desperate New Orleans Saints team. Defense will be optional this Sunday as these two prolific offenses square off. The only options that should be avoided for this game are the team defenses, as both offenses will most likely push the ball up and down the field. However, if you have a player that is on a bye or you are deciding between a player in this game, and someone on your bench, then it might be smart to...

Von Miller, not Marcus Peters, named AFC defensive player of month

The Chiefs’ Marcus Peters was the AFC defensive player of the week this week. He is not the AFC defensive player of the month. That goes to the Broncos’ Von Miller, the NFL announced today. Broncos LB Von Miller named AFC defensive player of the month.— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) September 29, 2016 They both made big impacts. The stats say Peters had four picks (one in a loss, one in a win) while Von Miller had five sacks, which leads the NFL. I have a feeling Peters is going to win one of these defensive players of the month award before his career is over. Maybe a couple...

San Diego Chargers Stadium: Debating Measure C

Earlier this afternoon, Point Loma Nazarene University hosted a debate about the economic benefits of Measure C. What did we learn? Essentially, there are two different schools of thought regarding the potential economic impact of the Measure C, the San Diego Chargers plan for a downtown stadium and convention center. One thought argues that the biggest benefit to San Diego argues that the ability to host the largest conventions possible is the best way to move forward. The other thought argues that having twin facilities with the ability to host smaller and medium sized conventions...

Andy Reid’s food for thought, Week 3 vs. Jets

I have a son who turns two on October 2 and we have been trying to potty train him here and there. Before the game started he went number two in the potty for the first time. Confused and not knowing what to do he stood up mid-poop, wandered around, and sat back down on his potty. Unbeknownst to me at the time, my son was trying to offer some foreshadowing as to how Ryan Fitzpatrick would play that day. The Chiefs Week 3 game against the Jets will be known forever as the Shitzpatrick day in our home. Really Good Cheeseburger of the Week Maclin and Wilson clear out leaving Kelce to burn...

Chiefs vs. Steelers will be a great red zone matchup

The Kansas City Chiefs are middle of the road when it comes to their offense in the red zone. But the Chiefs defense? They’re very good in the red zone. In fact, the Chiefs defense’s 23 percent in red zone efficiency is the best in the NFL. It’s not all Ryan Fitzpatrick either. The Jets and Texans were both 0- “We do a good job with that,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “I don’t know why. You always talk about the end line being the 12th man there. Our guys know how to space it out. We worked hard on it at training camp. So much of that is eliminating the seams in there because...

Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs news 9/29

Thursday's KC Chiefs news Personnel analysis: Chiefs preferred three-wide and two-tight end sets vs. Jets | The KC Star Dynamic rookie Tyreek Hill continues to get most of his playing time as a slot receiver in "zebra" personnel, rotating with Albert Wilson. I also noticed he is running many of the same package plays that De'Anthony Thomas used to run. Perhaps the club is keeping Thomas, even though he's been inactive every week, because he offers injury protection for Hill, both on offense and as a returner. If Hill — who has also earned the odd snap as a running back — were to get...

Ben Higgins and John Gennaro talk about the current state of the 1-2 San Diego Chargers heading into their home game against the New Orleans Saints. It’s difficult for me to separate my weekly emotions tied to the San Diego Chargers, which this week include frustration and depression, with my overall feelings about the state of the franchise at the moment. That’s why, even though the Squadcast podcast usually involves Ben Higgins and myself breaking down the previous Chargers game and previewing the upcoming game, I spent the majority of this week’s podcast criticizing Mike McCoy, Tom...
