Reason No. 1,463 not to run on the field
Chiefs safety Harold Jones-Quartey made two tackles last night—one on a Packers player and one on a fan who ran onto the field.
In the final minutes of the preseason finale at Lambeau, some clown ran out onto the field just as the teams were preparing for a kickoff. According to the Associated Press, the unnamed man “ran about the length of the field.” No one could capture him until Jones-Quartey decided he’d seen enough and brought him down.
You can see in these videos from the stands how Jones-Quartey patiently tracked down the interloper and kept his hips square to execute a perfect form tackle.
Jones-Quartey, who hasn’t played in a regular-season NFL game since 2016, is on the roster bubble for the Chiefs. But if he doesn’t make the squad, he can probably land a job as a security guard in a heartbeat.

All award acceptance speeches should be like the one French soccer legend Eric Cantona gave yesterday after getting an award from UEFA.
“As flies to wanton boys, we are for the gods. They kill us for their sport. Soon the science will not only be able to slow down the aging of the cells. Soon the science will fix cells to the state. And so we become eternal. Only accidents, crimes, wars will still kill us. But unfortunately, crimes and wars will multiply. I love football. Thank you.”
