What comparisons can be made between the NFL and the game of Chess?

Aside from the Raiders getting rooked on the Antonio Brown debacle.

    And castling is good when tailgating.

    Never understood why the King can only move one box at a time when the Queen can pretty
    much go wherever she wants. And the knights running a down and out or down and in pattern?
    I guess that compares to football.

    I love to collect 1987 topps baseball unopened wax and rack pack boxes.

    Those cheeseburgers look absolutely horrendous.

    In medieval chess the queen was the weakest piece on the board. She could only move or capture moving one space at a time in the diagonal direction. The modern queen got her power in the 1400s. The game with the weak queen must have deadly slow.

    Retired dealer and avid collector of U.S. type coins, 19th century presidential campaign medalets and selected medals. In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible.

    Both are played on a "Field" with 4 sides.

    You must protect your most important piece in order to win.

    The offensive line/pawns don’t really get as much credit as they deserve and they are often overlooked for the flashier guys with all the moves.

    Sound decision making and seeing the field are common traits amongst good players in both games.

    Not everyone can play it.

    If the guy calling the plays sucks you are in for a beating!

    Both are played on flat surfaces.
