    Jim Brown did more for the popularity of the game, but Paul Brown is probably the more important figure in football history.

    "Brown is credited with a number of American football innovations. He was the first coach to use game film to scout opponents, hire a full-time staff of assistants, and test players on their knowledge of a playbook.[1] He invented the modern face mask, the practice squad and the draw play. He also played a role in breaking professional football's color barrier, bringing the first African-Americans to play pro football in the modern era onto his teams."

    The coach successor tree from Paul Brown is ridiculous, not to mention two franchises exist (three if you count the Ravens by succession) because of him.

    Losing the week before a bye week sucks. Gotta just sit here and stew.

    First 2 passing TDs today are by a WR and a RB. Off to a good start for things that don't happen much.

    The Titans defense has been bad and they lost to the Jets, but most of the AFC teams that aren't dumpster fires are very inconsistent.

    Packers kicking memes are back. Two blocked kicks in this game so far, one for WAS and one for the Packers.

    God awful defense, AKA the Spagnuolo special. Turnovers, turnovers, turnovers means they are playing from behind a lot too.

    Mahomes really cant catch a break can he.. interception and a fumble.

    Like i said last week this chiefs team is a turnover machine on offense. I get that the defense sucks but then atleast try not to turnover the ball.

    I mean, it sounds like you're hesitant to put any blame on him? Which is something I'm seeing a lot from forums and experts. I know he's supposed to be NFLs golden child, but he's as much to blame for the Chiefs losing as anybody else.

    And its glorious to see.

    Oh no hes most definitely to blame as much as the rest, he fumbles not only the RBs and also some of the interception he threw where awfull and he just winged them while scrambling or being tackled.

    Ofc T.hill not being able to catch a ball causing interception is just as bad

    So far the new Oline has not impressed me that much.

    Chiefs keep trying to play hero ball to bail out their bad defense and I'm starting to worry if this is going to end up impacting Mahomes' long term development.

    It is a bit of both, chiefs playing hero ball and mahomes making bad decisions.

    Man my picks look like shit this week. KC shitting the bed and Cincy up on Baltimore. AFC is just kinda self consuming. Only AM picks I got right so far is NE and Atl... and the latter could change

    Jesus, the Chiefs collapse is ugly to watch.

    Mahomes eating a knee to the face wasn't pretty either.
