    Glad the Niners won. I've grown so sick of the quota worship. Glad for Jimmy G.

    I must say, the Chiefs might be one of the more tolerable of the quotaback teams in the 2021 playoffs. They're currently playing a 3/5 snowplow, with a superstar tight end (Kelce) with Blake Bell and Michael Burton seeing significant snaps. Add to that two defenders who see starting snaps (Niemann and Sorenson) and a God-fearing, mostly white-acting QB, and they may actually be better than some teams who start a white QB but otherwise field a 100% magical starting lineup aside from a backup lineman or two. They'd become pretty watchable if they added an overachiever at receiver or along the defensive line in the upcoming draft.

    First Derek Watt saves a TD on the punt return, then his brother T.J. tips a Mahomes pass that ends up being intercepted!

    Yep, notice the number of penalties in the game too; expect that to only get worse.

    Not sure it’s possible for the talking heads to put a positive spin on that, so it’ll likely just be ignored.

    I've never automatically rooted against a team based on their quarterback. I look at the entire team, starters, overall roster, what positions the White starters play and how they're used. It just happens this year that all four playoff teams with Black starting QBs area also very Caste, with the Chiefs being the least objectionable.

    Not sure why Spillane is starting over Schobert.
    He should be starting over Bush.

    The Steelers' receivers are bums and a couple of them are prima donnas to boot. For every clutch play they make, they drop three or four passes, or don't fight hard for the ball. That's why Big Ben trusts a rookie tight end more than any of them.

    I've argued with many here as to why Travis Kelce is the best NFL Tightend I've ever watched. After this first half maybe some more people here will
    agree with me. Day one Hall of Famer. He isn't done yet! :)

    Gents, first post and came here to say how much pleasure it gives me to see Brady, Gronk, Bosa, Watt etc.. have success today. Love seeing the narrative destroyed..

    Welcome! It’s always great to see a new poster who enjoys watching our White athletes succeed as much as the rest of us! Sometimes against incredible odds.

    Chiefs score a TD, camera goes straight to T.J. Watt. Like clockwork.

    Well at least Big Ben had a memorable final home game before this stinker. Great career, we'll see how the Steelers do without him next season.

    The performance of the Eagles and Steelers is a perfect example of why a 7th playoff team was a stupid idea and money grab, not that it wasn't obvious already.

    White cornerback Zayne Anderson playing for chiefs and chiefs fans on Twitter are calling for him to be cut, anyone know why?

    So if this is indeed Big Bens last game, who takes over next season? Does Rudolph get a chance to be the guy? We all know what direction Tomlin would like to go, for God’s sake, the man somehow found, and signed 2 black punters within a single season!!

    Yeah, pretty much, however I am glad to see Big Ben make one last appearance, and the Steelers D isn’t as objectionable as it has been in years past, so I don’t mind too much. I will say, the Chargers most likely would have put up a much better fight IMO.

    It'll be interesting. The only big names I've heard mentioned are Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson, but neither has yet shown any interest in playing in Pittsburgh, and it's very unlike the Steelers to make a big splash play for a QB. So Rudolph is the favorite at the moment. It'd be great if Kenny Pickett falls to them or they trade up to get him.

    Kelce with the TD pass!! The game is already in hand, not sure why the chiefs are emptying out the playbook..

    Many other teams would be accused of "bad sportsmanship" if they did something like that, but the Chiefs are the (((media))) darlings.

    Not that I have any objection to this kind of play, I just despise the double standards.
