Texans vs Chiefs: Thursday Night Open Thread and therapy session

Deep breath Bears’ fans, we’ll get through this one together...

NFL: AFC Divisional Round-Houston Texans at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Yeah, we get it Bears’ fans... This game could sting for some of you.

The Houston Texans and the 12th overall pick from the 2017 NFL Draft, Deshaun Watson, will travel to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and the 10th overall draft pick that year, Patrick Mahomes, in what ESPN Chicago’s Tom Waddle has dubbed the Son of a Mitch Bowl.

It’ll be fine.

We can get through this one together.

While SB Nation continues to work through the suggestions about their new commenting system, understand that over 20 things have already been tweaked, with more changes to come.

Here are a few things to keep in mind tonight in regards to the comment thread:

  1. If you change the ‘Sort By’ option to “Oldest,” you can read all the comments in chronological order, and the comment box moves to the bottom. If you leave it as “Newest”, the latest comments will appear at the top.
  2. If you’re using a computer, you can move down the comments using C, and move back up using shift-C by clicking once inside the comments area. This can also be used to ‘load more’ comments.
  3. Under the ‘My Profile’ tab, you can keep track of replies to your comments, and also sign up for email notifications of replies
  4. If you want to auto-show all images/GIFs/Tweets, you can opt into this under My Profile - Preferences

Also, we aren’t quite sure how the auto-moderating system will handle adult language, so if your F-Bombs aren’t showing up, maybe scale it back to a ‘Freak this fricking game!’ type of comment.

Try to enjoy the game everyone and think happy thoughts.
