Charlie Heck comes from solid NFL stock

Quote:
Growing up in Missouri, Charlie Heck didn’t have to look outside his house to learn the fundamentals of blocking.

The imposing Texans rookie offensive tackle gleaned knowledge at the dinner table and in the backyard from his father: Kansas City Chiefs offensive line coach Andy Heck, a former starting NFL offensive lineman and first-round draft pick from Notre Dame.

Charlie, a 6-foot-8, 311-pound swing tackle, was drafted by the Texans in the fourth round after a trade with the Los Angeles Rams. Now, the former North Carolina tackle is determined to apply what he’s been taught in the NFL from his father who earned a Super Bowl ring last season with the Chiefs as his linemen were bodyguards for Pro Bowl quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

“It’s been a dream of mine since I can remember, going with my dad to football games,” Charlie said. “To play for a team like the Texans, I’m still speechless right now. Football has been in my family a long time. It’s kind of been in my blood growing up. (cont)
Dad says:
Quote:
“I really do think his best ball is ahead of him,” his father said. “I’m excited for him. I think he’s going to develop really into a fine NFL offensive tackle. I’ve known all along that’s what he’s wanted. One of the things that was going on in the background is, of course, I’m evaluating offensive line and guys for the Chiefs.

“I’m aware of Charlie and I’m grading him, and as a dad, I’m like, ‘Man, we should pick this guy in the first round.’ I was trying to be realistic about that. Just imagine Charlie being here, the stress that would put on his mom. So, I wasn’t pushing hard for that at all’
and,
Quote:
“I’m really excited that he’s heading to Houston,” Andy said. “It will be fun. It sure feels like we play Houston every year and we’ve got some great battles between Houston and Kansas City going on, so it will be fun to compete against him.

“I’m so proud of Charlie. I’ve watched his development. He’s turned into this monster. He’s going to develop into a fine NFL offensive tackle”

If Charlie doesn't make the 55 man roster for the Texans, do you think the Chiefs sign him?

With eight of their players opting out of the season, the Patriots have gone from one of the tightest cap spaces ($700k) after the draft to the second most cap space in the NFL.

so with all the "boycotting" of playing games, how likely is everyone thinking we will see a NFL game boycotted or canceled this season?

I am thinking very likely. This all started in the NFL and they most certainly will continue it.

I think that'll be harder in the NFL. The culture is extremely corporate, the teams and coaches have way more pull than the players. Honestly I don't think the initial kneeling wouldve been such a big deal if a basketball player did it first. Popovich would've said something to the press about it, and it wouldve been a curiosity for a week before people moved on and stopped paying attention to it.

We might see some high profile players sit out, but NFL is such a "dog eat dog" organization I just don't see striking taking off. Could be wrong though.

As in most cases its usually the who, i.e. what if its Tom Brady, Patrick Mahomes, etc. that decides to sit out. you think the Bucs or Chiefs are suddenly going to be like "that's their personal choice but were going to continue to play with Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne"

These guys like to be paid. The only way to get paid is to play (as the NBA players quickly found out).
