Fanboy Hope For The Future

Patrick Mahomes and the NFL's new era at quarterback

The new era at quarterback: Carson Wentz, Marcus Mariota, Deshaun Watson, Patrick Mahomes. These are just a few of the young quarterbacks who have come in and taken the league by storm, forcing an out-with-the-old, in-with-the-new mentality in NFL quarterback rooms. While the likes of Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers still dominate the win columns and are the faces of the entire league, the end could be near for the long-time heroes of the NFL.

And this is the OPEN THREAD for right now . . .


  1. RE: Stay of execution granted to Mo. inmate with rare medical condition

    The height of hypocrisy!

    "The prisoner is too sick for us to kill him."
    ----MO Dept. of Corrections

  2. pompeo, he must be drone parts manufacturing slut. Isn't that what they do in witchita.

  3. Maybe he should switch to vibrator parts.

  4. Zona Rosa makes enough to pay the exec.s and developers, but not its rent, of course because it doesnt have to pay because th on hook. Thats why you never cosign anything

  5. Metro North goes bankrupt and closes at least in part because tax-subsidized Zona Rosa opens with breathless claims and empty hopes.
    Zona Rosa can't pay its rent, so the taxpayers have to come in and pick up the freight.
    Just like the P&L District in KCMO.
    Just like hotels throughout the city and soon to be joined by Mike's Loews Hotel, even with all the up-front taxpayer cash.
    When can we expect the next proposal for a big big new retail idea north of the river?
    Much sooner than you think.
    Those "developers", architects, bond attorneys, and construction company execs have to eat too!
    All as predictable as the sun coming up in the morning.

  6. 3:31 AM you got that right. Platte county taxpayers get it in the end, the way the contracts were written up I think it was planned for this to happen.

  7. They have other means of execution like hanging, firing squad, electrocution and how about we just let the dad get revenge any way he wants too!

  8. I have a baseball bat I'm not using, maybe the dad would like to have it?

  9. If he's that sick, don't even incarcerate him - just announce when and where he's being set loose, then turn your back.

  10. ^^^^+100000
