  1. He might avoid the noose if he can get us some hot pandemic chicks. This "St. Tony the Victim" routine is getting him no sympathy though so he can cry to his globalist buddies.
  2. I'm laughing at that fruity Patriots fan and fuck that guy. After 20+ years of dominance suddenly he can't handle being a fan because they don't win all the time? Fuck off! I actually had a long time friend of mine tell me last night he's done with football because his Cowboys got ousted in the first round again. I'm like, "Are you kidding? You haven't lived through 4 Super Bowl losses (2 of them to your team) and 17 years of no playoffs." GTFO. Fan are pussies nowadays. On another note, this dude is funny, I like him.
  3. Yeah, it is... 30 years ago with a doughy middle. Imagine what he looks like now.
  4. Bills vs. Chiefs set for divisional round playoff in KC: Here are 5 early thoughts on matchup It looked like the Pittsburgh Steelers were going to give the Kansas City Chiefs a game when they took an early 7-0 lead on Sunday night. But Patrick Mahomes responded with five touchdown passes, eliminating Ben Roethlisberger in what could be his final NFL game, and setting up a rematch of the 2020 AFC title game with the Buffalo Bills for next weekend in the divisional round. Buffalo plays Kansas City next Sunday at 6:30 p.m. on CBS. Jim Nance, Tony Romo, and Tracy Wolfson will have the call. The Bills opened as a +3 underdog on the road, per Betonline.ag. The Bills and Chiefs played back in October when the Bills won against a banged up Kansas City team, 38-20, in a rain storm on Sunday Night Football. There was a one-hour delay because of lightning, but Allen and the Bills didn’t miss a beat when they finally returned to the field. He finished with three touchdowns to just two from Mahomes, who finished with two interceptions. Buffalo clobbered AFC East rival New England on Saturday night, scoring a touchdown on every offensive possession except for the last one when Mitch Trubisky entered the game to kneel the ball. The Chiefs finished with 12 wins, one more than the Bills’ 11, securing the no. 2 seed and a home game in the second round. The Bills will play at Arrowhead Stadium for the third time in 12 months (the AFC title game last season was played on Jan. 24, 2021). Here are five early thoughts on the matchup. 1. Which elite QB has the advantage? Both Allen and Mahomes come into this game on fire. They each threw five touchdowns this weekend, respectively, and both have had success against the defense they’ll face next weekend. At first glance, the advantage has to go to Allen. He’ll face a Chiefs defense that ranked 27th in the league in pass defense. Kansas City allowed 251 pass yards per game during the regular season and gave up huge offensive days to the Bengals and Chargers in December. The Bills have scored touchdowns on 24 of their last 30 trips into the red zone. The Steelers had a solid pass defense this season. It ranked 9th during the regular season and were the fourth-best remaining pass defense in the playoffs. The Steelers only allowed 300 or more passing yards twice during the regular season. Mahomes had 386 by the end of three quarters on Sunday night. He’ll face a much tougher test next week against the Bills, who led the league in pass defense and allowed just one team to surpass 300 passing yards in a game (Tampa Bay). 2. Both teams have new weapons for rematch The Bills found a way to utilize all of their weapons at receiver against the Patriots, all while featuring tight end Dawson Knox, who led all pass catchers with 49 snaps. Isaiah McKenzie has had a pair of outstanding performances against New England over the past four weeks. He had three catches for 45 yards on Saturday and three carries for 29. Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll moves McKenzie all over the formation and even unleashed him more than ever out of the backfield on a few plays against the Patriots. He had a career day versus New England in December, catching 11 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown. He rotated in with Cole Beasley last game, and Gabriel Davis and Emmanuel Sanders did the same. With running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire injured, the Chiefs have finally found out what Jerick McKinnon can look like in their offense. McKinnon has top end speed and he showed it off against the Steelers, rushing it 12 times for 61 yards. He was even better in the pass game, catching six for 81 yards and a touchdown. With receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce to deal with, the Bills will have to have a solid plan for McKinnon, who gives the Chiefs another speedy weapon. 3. McDermott must out-duel Andy Reid Last year in the AFC title game, Sean McDermott went conservative in big moments. He settled for a few field goals when his offense was struggling, allowing the game to get out of reach by the time the fourth quarter arrived. He’s been better at times in that department this season, but in a rematch with Reid he must be aggressive because he has an offense worth believing in. After losing the chess match to Bill Belichick back in early December, McDermott put on a coaching clinic in the last two meetings. Reid was McDermott’s mentor, but the fifth-year Bills coach will need to hold his own in the chess match. 4. Chris Jones will play this time Jones didn’t play in the first game this season and the Bills offensive line was the beneficiary. He’ll likely factor into this game, and the addition of Melvin Ingram at the midway point of the season has allowed him to flip back inside where he’s most dangerous. Ingram had a great game against the Bills back in Week 1 when he was still on the Steelers. The Chiefs will also have L’Jarius Sneed back at cornerback. He had a good game against the Bills last season. 5. Unlike in AFC title game last year, Bills healthy at WR, suddenly have balanced offense Diggs and Beasley were basically playing on broken legs last year. Stefon Diggs had a torn oblique and Beasley had broken fibula. Diggs and Beasley played just a combined 52 snaps against the Patriots. McDermott said a few weeks back that the Bills learned lessons about managing their star players last season and have made roster decisions down the stretch with availability in mind, like with Emmanuel Sanders in Week 18 against the Jets. He may have been healthy enough the play, but McDermott wanted him ready for the playoffs. He caught a long touchdown pass from Allen on Saturday. Devin Singletary hasn’t fumbled in nine games and he has touchdowns in six straight games. The Bills offensive line has been dominant during Buffalo’s five-game winning streak and it’s been especially important in the run game. Singletary has two touchdown runs in the playoff win.
  5. Stefon Diggs remembers iconic photo after Bills loss to Chiefs last year; Here’s what McDermott told him after In the minutes after the Kansas City Chiefs eliminated the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship game last season, Stefon Diggs remained on the field to watch the celebration. He stayed there until Bills coach Sean McDermott left the locker room and came out to the field to console his All Pro receiver, who wanted to remember what it felt like in that moment. “Of course we didn’t win, but as a coach and as our leader, he had my back,” Diggs said of McDermott. “He supported me even when I was down and when things were good. He said we’ll be back and we’ll be fine.” The Bills found out late last night that they’ll travel to Kansas City again this weekend to play the Chiefs for the third time in a calendar year. Buffalo is indeed back in the same position they were a year ago. A game against the Chiefs in their house for a chance to advance in the AFC playoffs. The only difference is it’ll happen in the divisional round. Before the Bills destroyed the New England Patriots last week to advance in the playoffs, Diggs said that moment in Kansas City has stayed with him. “I’m keeping it in the back of my mind, but I’m real thankful that we’ve just got this opportunity to get back in the party at least,” he said. Diggs was banged up when the Bills played against the Chiefs last season in the playoffs. He had a torn oblique that hobbled him in the game. He still managed six grabs for 77 yards in a 38-24 loss. The Bills and Chiefs faced each other again earlier this season and Buffalo got a small measure of revenge. But it was a regular season game and the Chiefs were missing a few important defensive pieces, including defensive tackle Chris Jones. Bills wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders had one of his best games in a Bills uniform in that game, catching three passes for 54 yards and two touchdowns. Before Diggs returned to Arrowhead earlier this season, he spoke about the lingering feelings from the AFC title game loss. The Bills hated the way the game ended, but the good news is that there will be more opportunities to play against them. Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen will probably see each other quite a bit in January over the next decade. Diggs needed that moment on the field last season when he forced himself to watch the Chiefs celebrate a trip to the Super Bowl. It’s what has helped drive him and the Bills to get back to this point for this rematch on Sunday. “As far as being in the moment and embracing that if things don’t go your way, you kind of still have to deal with them. I didn’t want to run from defeat,” Diggs said. “I’ve lost before, and I’m gonna still look at it the same way. I’m gonna keep my chin up, and I’m gonna keep my head high. So for me, I just felt you be still, you be in it. You embrace the moment, take it for what it is, and move forward. So for me, I took it as a moment as you came up short, get back in the lab, and you’ve gotta get back to the grind.”
  6. Science bro. Science Settles It: NPR's Liberal, But Not Very (From Liberal Forbes Magazine) A lot of the debate over whether to eliminate federal funding for public radio is really a discussion about bias. Why should taxpayers foot the bill for something that's a tool of liberals? say those who want to defund, like video espionage artist James O'Keefe. NPR's journalism is as down-the-middle as it gets, counter defenders like "This American Life" host Ira Glass. The latter may well be right, but the former aren't totally off base, either: An analysis of NPR's connections on Twitter shows it has the sort of network you'd expect to see from a left-of-center person or institution. That conclusion comes from researchers at Duke University, who set out to see if they could use the social graph to accurately plot the ideological affiliations of political candidates. Using the voting networks of politicians to establish a liberal-to-conservative gradient, the researchers then analyzed the candidates' Twitter networks -- ie. who they followed and who followed them -- and found the results described a curve that matched that of the voting records. Next, the researchers looked at the Twitter networks of a variety of individuals and brands in the media business. The results were pretty much what you'd expect: A curve with right-wing people and outlets like Michelle Malkin and The Weekly Standard at one end, left wingers like Ezra Klein and The Nation at the other end, and BBC News and C-Span near the center point. The only surprises were how far to the left some mainstream entities, such as Katie Couric and the Washington Post, fell (although that would be no surprise at all to those who think the entire mainstream media is shot through with liberal bias). The New York Times Bits blog wrote about the Duke group's findings yesterday but omitted to mention where NPR fell on the curve. Since NPR and publicly-funded broadcasting have been such hot topics lately, I asked one of the researchers, David B. Sparks, where it resides. His answer: somewhat to the left of center, but further to the right than Couric, the Post, the Los Angeles Times or Brian Williams. (See full chart below.) Of course, none of them receive federal funding. A caveat: The Duke team's results don't directly get at the ideologies of the entities themselves, only at the makeup of the networks that surround them. "We would say that our estimates relate to the perception of a given entity," Sparks says. "However, for the purposes of our paper and possibly for thinking about the media, perceptions may be what is actually important." Sparks says The New York Times couldn't be included in the study "due to a limitation on the way we were able to collect data."
  7. Top Israeli immunologist criticizes pandemic response in open letter Professor Ehud Qimron, one of Israel's top immunologists, wrote an open letter to the Israeli Ministry of Health. The wheels are starting to come off the bus. Professor Ehud Qimron: “Ministry of Health, it’s time to admit failure” Professor Ehud Qimron, head of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Tel Aviv University and one of the leading Israeli immunologists, has written an open letter sharply criticizing the Israeli – and indeed global – management of the coronavirus pandemic. Original letter in Hebrew: N12 News (January 6, 2022); translated by Google/SPR. See also: Professor Qimron’s prediction from August 2020: “History will judge the hysteria” (INN). ∗∗∗ Ministry of Health, it’s time to admit failure In the end, the truth will always be revealed, and the truth about the coronavirus policy is beginning to be revealed. When the destructive concepts collapse one by one, there is nothing left but to tell the experts who led the management of the pandemic – we told you so. Two years late, you finally realize that a respiratory virus cannot be defeated and that any such attempt is doomed to fail. You do not admit it, because you have admitted almost no mistake in the last two years, but in retrospect it is clear that you have failed miserably in almost all of your actions, and even the media is already having a hard time covering your shame. You refused to admit that the infection comes in waves that fade by themselves, despite years of observations and scientific knowledge. You insisted on attributing every decline of a wave solely to your actions, and so through false propaganda “you overcame the plague.” And again you defeated it, and again and again and again. You refused to admit that mass testing is ineffective, despite your own contingency plans explicitly stating so (“Pandemic Influenza Health System Preparedness Plan, 2007”, p. 26). You refused to admit that recovery is more protective than a vaccine, despite previous knowledge and observations showing that non-recovered vaccinated people are more likely to be infected than recovered people. You refused to admit that the vaccinated are contagious despite the observations. Based on this, you hoped to achieve herd immunity by vaccination — and you failed in that as well. You insisted on ignoring the fact that the disease is dozens of times more dangerous for risk groups and older adults, than for young people who are not in risk groups, despite the knowledge that came from China as early as 2020. You refused to adopt the “Barrington Declaration”, signed by more than 60,000 scientists and medical professionals, or other common sense programs. You chose to ridicule, slander, distort and discredit them. Instead of the right programs and people, you have chosen professionals who lack relevant training for pandemic management (physicists as chief government advisers, veterinarians, security officers, media personnel, and so on). You have not set up an effective system for reporting side effects from the vaccines, and reports on side effects have even been deleted from your Facebook page. Doctors avoid linking side effects to the vaccine, lest you persecute them as you did with some of their colleagues. You have ignored many reports of changes in menstrual intensity and menstrual cycle times. You hid data that allows for objective and proper research (for example, you removed the data on passengers at Ben Gurion Airport). Instead, you chose to publish non-objective articles together with senior Pfizer executives on the effectiveness and safety of vaccines. Irreversible damage to trust However, from the heights of your hubris, you have also ignored the fact that in the end the truth will be revealed. And it begins to be revealed. The truth is that you have brought the public’s trust in you to an unprecedented low, and you have eroded your status as a source of authority. The truth is that you have burned hundreds of billions of shekels to no avail – for publishing intimidation, for ineffective tests, for destructive lockdowns and for disrupting the routine of life in the last two years. You have destroyed the education of our children and their future. You made children feel guilty, scared, smoke, drink, get addicted, drop out, and quarrel, as school principals around the country attest. You have harmed livelihoods, the economy, human rights, mental health and physical health. You slandered colleagues who did not surrender to you, you turned the people against each other, divided society and polarized the discourse. You branded, without any scientific basis, people who chose not to get vaccinated as enemies of the public and as spreaders of disease. You promote, in an unprecedented way, a draconian policy of discrimination, denial of rights and selection of people, including children, for their medical choice. A selection that lacks any epidemiological justification. When you compare the destructive policies you are pursuing with the sane policies of some other countries — you can clearly see that the destruction you have caused has only added victims beyond the vulnerable to the virus. The economy you ruined, the unemployed you caused, and the children whose education you destroyed — they are the surplus victims as a result of your own actions only. There is currently no medical emergency, but you have been cultivating such a condition for two years now because of lust for power, budgets and control. The only emergency now is that you still set policies and hold huge budgets for propaganda and psychological engineering instead of directing them to strengthen the health care system. This emergency must stop! Professor Udi Qimron, Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University
  8. What's up with that gay, shirtless pic for his avatar? Advertising?
  9. I expect a repeat of the matchup we had earlier this year and toast these bastards in their own house.
  10. Numbers Game The Belichick Tree has yielded nine NFL head coaches, all of whom got jobs running teams since 2000. With the firing of Brian Flores and Joe Judge last week, there are zero left coaching NFL teams, and only two (Al Groh, Jets; Bill O’Brien, Houston) with a winning record. You probably will not find too many Jets and Texans players or fans who will look back at those reigns fondly. From Nick Saban leaving Wayne Huizenga at the altar in 2006 to Joe Judge’s bizarre final days in New Jersey, the Belichick Tree history would leave me wondering about hiring anyone in his current orbit. Now, I realize Josh McDaniels is a far better coach than he was 12 years ago in Denver; if I had a kid quarterback, there’s no one on this market I’d be more comfortable entrusting him to than McDaniels. Plus, I realize Jerod Mayo had a chance to be a good coach. I’m just saying you cannot ignore this history. And particularly after the embarrassing wild-card loss at Buffalo, it may not be a problem current Belichick branches will have to worry about. In 30 seasons, the branches on Belichick’s coaching tree have won 41 percent of their games (199-276-1). Eight of the nine did not win a playoff game as head coaches. To me, that’s the more interesting part of Belichick vs. Students—the postseason. Comparing Belichick (granted, all but two games are with Tom Brady on his side) to his former assistant coaches in the postseason: (The nine coaches: Al Groh, Nick Saban, Romeo Crennel, Eric Mangini, Josh McDaniels, Bill O’Brien, Matt Patricia, Brian Flores, Joe Judge.)
  11. FMIA Wild-Card Weekend: 49ers Survive, Cowboys Crumble, Bills Dominate In Opening Of NFL Playoffs Bills 47, Patriots 17 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Not long before one of the great playoff games an NFL quarterback has ever played, a text message pinged into Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen’s phone. So proud to know that you’ve risen to the level of being a Pro Bowl alternate! The sarcastic barb came from Allen’s trusted offseason workout coach, Jordan Palmer. Allen, of course, was somewhat famously omitted from the AFC Pro Bowl roster this year when Patrick Mahomes, Justin Herbert and Lamar Jackson were chosen ahead of him. Maybe Allen used a few drops of motivational fuel from the Palmer text. Maybe he just chuckled at it. My bet is the former. Whatever, this was the quarterback who had drilled into him by Palmer all offseason, “Finish, finish,” to the point of not taking gimmes on the short putts on the golf course. This was the quarterback who wanted to be sure in August that his days of playing “Heroball,” as Allen called it, trying to win games by himself, were over. This was the quarterback so comfortable with the schemes and play-calls and progression reads from offensive coordinator Brian Daboll that he calmly took 9.18 seconds from snap to throw, meandering and thinking and looking, before throwing his first touchdown in a 47-17 rout of the rival Patriots on Wild-Card Weekend. The two big things Allen concentrated on in the preseason look positively fixed now. Too often in his first three years, Allen told me in camp, “I tried to play pissed off on the field and I found myself not playing very well.” And, he said, he was “trying not to be a hero.” On Saturday, the Pro Bowl alternate played with the zen of Rodgers, with the precision of Brady, with the open-field moves of Jackson. Allen played seven series in his 52 minutes of play. He was peerless. His team was peerless. This was the best game of Allen’s four NFL seasons, and nothing comes close for second place. For the first time in NFL history, a team never had a fourth down, never punted, never kicked a field goal, was perfect on third downs. Allen drove for a touchdown in every possession using perfect touch when he had to, lasered throws when he had to, throwing to spot, deking back-seven defenders, and once running out of (what should have been) a tackle-for-loss in the grasp of 310-pound tackle Christian Barmore. Allen did all of this against the NFL’s second-ranked defense in the 2021 season. This was a crazy night in Buffalo—the biggest, locals said, this century. “We knew the history,” said safety Micah Hyde, also a hero in 47-17, a score that will be on Bills Mafia shirts soon, I’m sure. “We know what it’s been like the last 20 years.” Non-competitive. That’s what it’s been like since Bill Belichick took over as Patriots coach in 2000. In games in Buffalo between New Year’s Day 2000 and ’22, New England had 19 wins, Buffalo three. Three wins in 22 years! In Buffalo! Non-competitive. That’s what it was like Saturday night, in minus-five wind chill. This time, it was the Patriots who couldn’t compete. “Embarrassing,” was the last word New England team leader Devin McCourty said to the press this season before walking off the podium for the last time, in the worst Belichick playoff loss ever. I have never seen a Belichick team so outclassed. Allen was the reason. This game completed his progression as a big-time NFL quarterback. No jittery movements, no rushing anything. Craziest play: On his first touchdown, the 9.18-second rollout right, I swore he was throwing the ball out of the end zone to avoid taking the sack. That’s exactly what happened. “I thought I threw the ball away,” Allen said later. “I got hit and was going back to the huddle for what I think was third down, and everybody was celebrating. I had no idea what was going on.” Simple: Tight end Dawson Knox leaped at the end line, stayed inbounds, and somehow caught the high ball from Allen. Watching on the scoreboard for the replay, seeing the eight-yard TD, Allen said he thought: “Holy crap. I did not mean for that to happen.” Then there were the jock-dropping two runs (Allen ran for 66 yards), leaving a Pats linebacker and safety grasping at air. And there was the gorgeous last TD throw, when Allen threw it low and outside to wideout Gabriel Davis because there was a Patriot beginning to dive in front of him; Allen saw the danger and threw where only Davis could catch it. Allen did it all on the coldest night he ever played the sport—looking like it was a wind-less 76-degree day in mid-September. Watching from across the country in California, tutor Palmer saw a student who’s come a long way since completing 53 percent of his throws in a jittery rookie season, just three years ago. “I saw control,” Palmer said. “I saw him play free and easy, in total control. You can see this moment is not too big for him. It’s like he feels, I better be able to handle this if I’m gonna beat Aaron Rodgers. That’d be in the Super Bowl, of course. After the first weekend of the AFC playoffs, the Bills look like they have the best chance of anyone in the AFC to get there.
  12. I would hang up on voter funded, subversive NPR as well. Good on him!
  13. You're getting closer to the truth but the groups you speak of are still in a haze for you. A Russian politician recently commented on how bad Russia got in the 90s feeding these fringe groups and sees the exact same thing here. He's right. The majority are being disenfranchised while the parasitic loonies take top billing and no country can survive that. Biden is the empty suit in place to continue this trend whether you admit it or not.
  14. Star is on the B team rotational list now but he's still paid like a starter. He reaps what he sows.
  15. Absolute risk versus relative risk. Going by the former it shows the shots basically do nothing and going by the latter elevates them to magical water bestowed on humanity by the gods of science.
  16. It wouldn't keep mutating like this if they would stop pumping garbage vaccines into people for dollars. The virus figures out a way to get around it. The more you inject the more it mutates to avoid it.
  17. It is a stupid statement that I got from stupid people who told other stupid people, less than a year ago, that getting this shot would make them immune, enable them to rejoin society, and no longer needing any kind of mask. Don't be mad at me for the lies they told you guys now that they've changed the story to say the shots are only good for avoiding hospitalization which also is crumbling as we speak.
