On NFL Headlines with Tony R:

#1 Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu has been put on the Covid 19 list after testing positive. In what some call a breakthrough case Mathieu had been vaccinated. While the Chiefs have three other safeties at their disposal Mathieu has 24 hours to test asymptomatic twice within that period to be eligible for Sun Sep 12 game against the Cleveland Browns.

#2 Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard said that everybody should get vaccinated. Ballard talked about his players who are not vaccinated. Quarterback Carson Wentz, center Ryan Kelly, and receiver Zach Pascal came into a Colts staff member who was positive and all three have been place on the Covid 19 list.

#3 Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has received the confidence of Dolphins head coach Brian Flores. Tagovailoa has been floated as a possible trade to the Houston Texans and has said he does appreciate the support from Flores.

#4 Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Marcus Moriota is set to receive $10 million this season just to sit on the bench as a back up behind starter Derek Carr. Moriota could have got a deal worth up to $20 million plus incentives but will stay in Vegas as no other team is will to pay that price and the Raiders would like to wait to restructure Moriota’s contract.

#5 The San Francisco 49ers quarterback situation has been the all the talk as head coach Kyle Shanahan plans to start quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and insert back up Trey Lance in mid series plays. It did throw the Raiders off in last Sunday’s pre season game it could do the same in the regular season.

On the 49ers podcast with David:

#1 David, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance’s 80 yard pass to wide receiver Trent Sherfield for a touchdown last Saturday is still the topic of discussion while that may not be the clincher for a starting job it was a good initiation in Lance’s first game with the 49ers.

#2 Head coach Kyle Shanahan had a good look at Lance keeping him in for much of the second quarter. Lance threw 5-14 for 128 yards, and one touchdown and stayed in pocket pretty for much for his throws.

#3 Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was also impressive in the short time he saw action going 3-3 for 26 yards no touchdowns. Shanahan like what he saw of Garoppolo as Garoppolo threw with lots of confidence in the first pre season game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

On the 49ers podcast with J Hawkes:

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance show some elusiveness, Lance went 5-14 for 128 yards and a touchdown. He had some good throws that were dropped by the receivers he could have had eight completions if the receivers had caught the ball.

Lance’s 80 touchdown throw to Trent Sherfield was a good play, Lance’s throw was a dart it had a little wobble to it but it was a good throw. Lance had some great aggressiveness good play calling. Lance pretty played the entire second quarter after quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo quarterbacked one series. For Garoppolo played for ten snaps Garoppolo in his time under center in the game looked good going 3-3 for 26 yards and was able to get the ball out of his hand quickly.

The receiving core there are guys who are trying to make the roster Jauan Jennings had a nice catch on a ball that was throw by quarterback Josh Rosen in the second half the pass was a little high. Jennings one reception and 26 yards in the contest, Wide out Charlie Woerner caught one for 34 yards and didn’t score, and Trent Sherfield one reception and 80 yards and one touchdown.

Chiefs win edge over 49ers in clubs’ first preseason game 19-16

~ By Pearl Allison Lo

~ August 14, 2021

~ San Francisco almost made a late comeback Saturday, but Kansas City was able to prevail 19-16 with 1:19 left in the contest.  

49ers’ rookie quarterback Trey Lance made a splash in his debut, with an 80-yard rocket to wide receiver Trent Sherfield. 

Quarterbackwise, the traditional starters, San Francisco’s Jimmy Garoppolo and the Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes each played the first drive, followed by Lance and Chad Henne.

The first three drives of the game resulted in punts. 

Kansas City got on the board first due to good field position combined with a 13-yard pass interference penalty to Talanoa Hufanga. Henne made a five yard pass to Byron Pringle with 2:57 left in the first. 

After an incomplete pass and a seven yard sack in his first drive, Lance followed it up with his 80-yarder score eight seconds later. It stayed 7-6 when kicker Robbie Gould’s extra point hit an upright. Lance finished 5-of-14 for 128 yards and was sacked four times. 

The 49ers made it two scoring drives in a row as Deommodore Lenoir intercepted Henne. Robbie Gould helped the cause at the end of the resulting drive with a 36-yard field goal, making it 9-7 with 12:29 left in the second.

Lance made another big play with 9:44 left, throwing 34 yards to Charlie Woerner. 

The Chiefs brought in “rookie” undrafted free agent quarterback Anthony Gordon with 7:45 left.

With just under a minute left before halftime, kicker Harrison Butker went for a 62-yard field goal. It would have been a career-best, but fell short. 

The 49ers led all halftime stats except for first downs.

Kansas City went up 10-9 after the first drive of the second half. It was the longest drive of the game, lasting 6:14 and culminating with a 52-yard field goal by Butker.  

After the opening drives, quarterbacks rookie Shane Buechele and Josh Rosen came in for San Francisco and the Chiefs respectively. 

The 49ers had two drives resulting consecutively in an interception and a fumble. The interception came with their closest position of the second half so far when they were on KC’s 19.

Kansas City padded their lead by three with a 46-yard Butker field goal with 4:27 left to go in the game and this sparked two more scores.

Nsimba Webster started San Francisco’s drive with a 43-yard return followed by a 34-yard rush. 

With the clock winding down and potential overtime looming, the Chiefs made sure it did not happen and Buchele walked into the endzone for the game’s final points.

The match officially ended on an illegal shift penalty to the 49ers.

Red zone totals were 2-2 for Kansas City and 1-3 for San Francisco. 

Up Next: The 49ers will face one of their Southern California counterparts next in the form of the Los Angeles Chargers at the new SoFi Stadium Sunday August 22 at 4:30pm. 

Headline Sports podcast with London Marq: Chiefs had problems and issues before Super Bowl; Biden will ask for one month MLB season delay

On Headline Sports with London:

#1 How much did distraction play a role in the Super Bowl for the Kansas City Chiefs. After losing tackle Eric Fisher, then the DUI auto accident with assistant coach Britt Reid, and traveling to Tampa Bay just less than 24 hours before game time on Saturday.

#2 The Chiefs announced that quarterback Patrick Mahomes will undergo foot surgery and had been suffering turf toe since the AFC Championship game against the Buffalo Bills. How much did the injury play a role in his performance?

#3 The Biden administration has offered the idea to delay the MLB season a month until vaccines have been distributed to the players. The administration was confident that all players would be vaccinated. The delay could cancel pre season games in Florida and Arizona and go right into the regular season starting the first week of April.

#4 The Biden administration isn’t the only ones asking baseball to delay spring training but the Arizona Cactus League earlier had asked MLB to delay playing games in Arizona which involves 15 teams due to Covid-19 concerns.

#5 The Sacramento Kings have been on a hot steak they have won six of seven games previous to playing the Philadelphia 76ers last night. The Kings during a three game losing steak had critics saying that Luke Walton was on the hot seat but the recent win streak appears to have given Walton some redemption.

Brady claims 7th ring, Bucs rout KC in Super Bowl LV 31-9

Different uniform, same results.

After winning six NFL championships with New England, Tom Brady added a seventh ring to his collection Sunday after leading Tampa Bay past Kansas City 31-9 in Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.

Brady was also selected as the game’s most valuable player, his fifth overall, breaking a tie with Joe Montana. The 43-year-old signal caller completed 21 of 29 passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns – two of them to his old Patriots teammate Rob Gronkowski and the other to Antonio Brown.

Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones combined for 150 rushing yards, and assistant Todd Bowles’ defensive game plan effectively shut off the Chiefs’ passing lanes and kept KC off balance throughout the game. Bucs linebacker Devin White racked up 12 tackles, plus an interception late in the fourth quarter.

Kansas City didn’t help itself by being flagged 10 times for 110 penalty yards, and the Chiefs were 3 of 13 on third down conversions.

After Kansas City jumped to a 3-0 lead in the first quarter on a 52-yard Harrison Butker field goal, the Buccaneers responded with an 8-yard TD pass from Brady to Gronkowski. At 6:05 of the second quarter, Brady found Gronkowski for a 17-yard scoring strike.

Butker booted a 34-yard field goal with 1:01 left in the second quarter, but the Bucs found the end zone with six seconds left in the half on a 1-yard touchdown pass from Brady to Brown. The Buccaneers led 21-6 at halftime.

Early in the third quarter, Butker’s third field goal – a 52-yarder – pulled the Chiefs to within 21-9. Tampa Bay finished the scoring when Fournette ran in from 27 yards out midway through the third quarter, and with 2:46 to go in the quarter, Ryan Succop tacked on a 52-yard field goal.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was held to 270 yards 26 of 49 passes, was intercepted twice and sacked three times. It was the first time he didn’t throw a touchdown pass in a game since Sept. 29, 2019, against Detroit in a 34-30 win over the Lions.

The Weekend performed at halftime, and the National Anthem was sang by country singer Eric Church and R&B singer Jazmine Sullivan. H.E.R. performed “America The Beautiful” in the pregame ceremonies.

On the Super Bowl LV podcast post game show with Barbara Mason:

#1 Barbara a total blowout in Tampa Bay tonight for Kansas City no defense and no offense on either side of the ball.

#2 After two touchdowns were scored for Tampa Bay in the second quarter and a half time score of 21-6 would you say that was indicator for what was to be the outcome of this game?

#3 The Chiefs looked like they just couldn’t do anything with Tom Brady and the Bucs all night long?

#4 Brady didn’t even have to throw for 300 yards he threw for over 200 yards and still burned the Chiefs with three touchdowns.

#5 For Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes 238 yards and no touchdowns a really disappointing game to finish to season for Mahomes and the Chiefs

Super Bowl LV podcast with Jessica:

#1 Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Pat Mahomes says that he’s not focusing on Tom Brady’s record of ten Super Bowl appearances and six Super Bowl championships but just a chance to win his second Super Bowl.

#2 Mahomes said that every time he hits the field his mindset is on winning the game and the goal is to win as many Super Bowls as possible.

#3 From the looks of it that has been Brady’s accomplished goal and for Mahomes he’s been staying very consistent with the kind of games that he’s been having as the Chiefs finished the regular season with a 15-2 record and first in the AFC Conference.

#4 Jessica this will be the first time that a Super Bowl team will play host on their home field. The closest that ever came was when the San Francisco 49ers played the Miami Dolphins in 1985 and the game was at Stanford Stadium but not quite the home stadium. This has to be pretty special for the Buccaneers to host this game.

#5 Practice has looked well for both teams as the prepare for Super Bowl Sunday. The Vegas line has the Chiefs by three in what is expected to be a razor close game.

Super Bowl LV podcast with London Marq: Players enjoy week away from media days; Brady oldest player to play in Super Bowl

A jubilant Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady after defeating the Green Bay Packers on Sun Jan 24, 2021 in the NFC Championship will be the oldest player to play in a Super Bowl in NFL history (for the file photo)

On Headline Sports with London:

#1 London not having in person media days does take away the media’s opportunities to get in person perspectives from Super Bowl players in a socially distanced situation like this?

#2 On the other hand it’s safe to say the players certainly won’t miss doing media days and sitting and meeting with the press in person during Super Bowl week.

#3 Tom Brady at age 43 quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will break the all time NFL record for the oldest player to play in a Super Bowl what does that have to mean for Brady?

#4 Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo has set up defensive plays against Brady before when he was with the New England Patriots do you see his play calls being different against Brady since he’s now with Tampa Bay or Spagnuolo will execute plays based on knowing Brady’s habits?

#5 This game will be played in front of only 22,000 fans a limited amount of fans because of social distance concerns. The NFL wanted the Super Bowl to be played with some people in the stands so they can get some real crowd noise in stadium as opposed to piped in sound.

That’s Amaury’s News and Commentary: Super Bowl LV, The Great One vs. The Cool One

Super Bowl LV: The Great One vs. The Cool One

That’s Amaury News and Commentary

By Amaury Pi-González

Super Bowl LV is ready for a great match-up of quarterbacks between The Great One, Tom Brady of Tampa Bay Buccaneers champions of the NFC, future Hall of Famer and The Cool One, Patrick Mahomes of the AFC Champion and reigning NFL Champions Kansas City Chiefs.

No team has repeated as Super Bowl champion since the 2003-04 Tom Brady’s New England Patriots, who are currently tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers with six Super Bowl wins. The Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers are the only other franchises with at least five Lombardi Trophies. Two Quarterbacks for the Ages, Tom Brady vs. Patrick Mahomes

The Great One: Brady, His style is solely about what wins games. If that means throwing the ball less, he will do that. If it means giving it to his running back more often, he will execute that also. If he needs to pass, he still has a very powerful and accurate arm to do the job.

When he turned 40 years of age, he was the oldest QB to start in Super Bowl history, back in Super Bowl LII, when he surpassed Payton Manning, when the Patriots faced the Eagles. Now he is 43 and he still doing it.

Brady was as drafted as a baseball catcher at Serra High School in San Mateo, California, also attended by NFL Hall of Famer Lynn Swann as well as baseball’s Barry Bonds, Jim Fregosi and Gregg Jefferies, among others.

Tom Brady in Super Bowl’s is Número Uno: First all time in the following – QB to start in three different decades: 2000’s, 2010’s, and 2020’s. Ten Starts. Most pass completions 256. Most passing yards in history 2,838. Most pass Touchdowns 18 with New England and most SB wins with six; last time he won a SB was in 2017.

The Cool One: Mahomes: All-around athlete. He can throw it for a touchdown or he can run it into the end-zone to score. Very quick, can and will throw from different positions, different arm angles, can throw the football sidearm.

There is little he cannot do at his age of 25. He plays with great style and flair when he was 23 he became the second African-American quarterback to win the NFL MVP award. This season he threw for 5,097 yards, 50 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Only QB in history to throw over 5,000 yards in a season in both, college at Texas Tech and in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs. He owns the largest contract (moneywise) in US sports, history. Ten-years with Kansas City worth $503 million.

In the world, only one athlete has a bigger contract, Argentinean-born Lionel Messi of the FC Barcelona (Soccer) of La Liga in Europe. $4 years $674 million, Who will win, Great or Cool? Not getting into the weeds, both of these teams and quarterbacks are championship caliber.

However, if it is between Great and Cool, I am afraid I will take Great 9 of out 10 times. When: Sunday, February 7, 2021 – Where: Raymond James Stadium, aka “Ray-Jay” Tampa, Florida.– Seating capacity: 65,618, with 22,000 expected to be in attendance, 7,500 of those are health care workers who were given a free ticket by the NFL. They all had received a covid-19 vaccine.

Announcers: Play by Play- Jim Nantz. Commentary – Tony Romo… Time: 3:30 Pacific Coast time CBS will use 120 cameras. Thirty-seconds of advertising approximately $5.5 million one of the most watched annual sporting events in the world, the NFL’s championship game is broadcast in over 130 countries in more than 30 languages.

Fly Over: Three (3) Air Force bombers to perform first ever trifecta for National Anthem. The planes: All in one of Super Bowl 55: B-52+ B-2+B-1 = 55! Half Time Show. The Weekend will perform.

Firsts: First time a team participating in the Super Bowl (Tampa) plays at their regular season stadium. Super Bowl that is played during a Pandemic. Those three Air Force Bombers do a flyover. Sarah Thomas first female Super Bowl official.

Tie breaker: The AFC has won the Super Bowl 27 times and the NFC has won the Super Bowl 27 times. Why do Super Bowl games have Roman numerals?. Lamar Hunt, Kansas City Chief Founder, is also credited for introducing Roman numerals to keep track of the championship title bowls.

Roman numerals are an ancient numeric system where numbers are represented by symbols. Developed around 500 B.C. as the Romans conquered most of the world that was known to them. Their numeral system spread throughout Europe, where for centuries if was their primary way of representing numbers. Happy Super Bowl!

Stay well and stay tuned.
