QB Alex Smith is going to Washington in Big Trade.  (per Ian Rapoport)

Won't be made official until March, but Ian always has great sources. Pretty surprised by this, why would you give up an elite QB like Smith? The Chiefs need to get rid of Andy Reid and Bill Sutton more than their QB. Considering they already lost their OC to Chicago, who had great play calling in the last four weeks of the regular season, you might want to clean house now. Unless they're getting Kirk Cousins in return, which I doubt, this is a BAD move. But it does save them, what, 18 million in salary cap?
They are going to elevate Mahomes (sp?).  A first round pick.  If Mahomes works out then it's a hell of a deal for the Chiefs.  They'll dump the last year of Smith's salary, get an elite corner back and a third round pick.  Mahomes must pan out though.  I don't understand the Redskins side of the trade.  It looks foolish to me.

The concensus is that KC is indeed going with Mahomes all the way.  

All we need to know about the Redskins is this:  Dan Snyder.
A Jerry Jones/Al Davis clone.

Snyder wishes he was half the business man that Al Davis was. Jerry is on another level.

This trade makes no sense to me. It just seems like Washington is pretty much putting the gun to their head and pulling the trigger. They could have resolved this issue if they just gave Cousins the long term contract he was looking for. So, instead of giving your young 29 year old QB that has proven himself as a great player (with a healthy line and receivers, that is) for a 34 year old that might not make the full 4 years. I'm not convinced that Smith will last that long. Comparing him to Cousins, I'd pick Cousins.

All I know is that Cousins' agent better be shopping that free agency market hard. Look to Jacksonville, especially. They could use someone to replace Bortles.

Does Brady come back, or does Giselle make him call it a career?

He'll be back.  The fierce competitor in him won't stand for ending his career like that.

The hold out rumor is interesting, but I don’t buy it for a minute.

I heard Gronk saying something about quitting after the game.  Post loss stress syndrome?  I don't buy that one, either.

I don't either.  Both players are far far far too good to walk away.

The hold-out rumor was a hoax, and Gronk was just being sad Gronk for a bit.

That's why trading Jimmy G, for basically nothing, was really dumb.

I am a BIG fan of Jeapordy! I watch almost every weeknight. When this episode ran my better 1/2 & I were practically on the floor in :LMAO: fashion as not one contestant had even the slightest clue to attempt even a guess. The funny thing is the questions were quite simple! However I will have to refer to my dearly departed mother whom would always say when she was unable to do a seemingly simple item;  "Well it's easy to stand an egg on end when you know how to do it" :D
