Merlin's Magic Week Five

A Thud and a Crack

On Sunday, I heard a thud and a crack. The thud was our young team descending back to pathetic status. The crack was the ice under the current regime’s feet. I would do an autopsy, but I am not sure there is enough remaining for a DNA match. My only comment is that the current regime doesn’t have very many of these performances left or they will be heading to the exits. I am talking about after the season, not during.

Other Notes:

Just because Tony Gonzalez has the important TE records does not make him the greatest of all time. Just the same way that Emmit Smith is not better than Walter Peyton because he has more yardage, Tony is not the best because he has more receiving yards than any other TE. IMO, Tony belongs in the conversation as ONE of the best TE’s every to play the game. Is he the best? Maybe, you can make a case for him, Kellen Winslow, Ozzie Newsome, Mike Ditka and a Raider TE not to be named. I really don’t consider Shannon Sharpe a TE since the only blocks he had were the ones he played with as a kid.

Draft Watch:

Right now, we are still looking at QB, MLB and rush DE as our first round needs. We should know about QB before the year’s out. StevenH talked about rush DE in the first round. It’s certainly a possibility. Pass rushers are at a premium come draft time. We look to be heading towards a top ten pick. I am still open to any of those three positions at this point. We need some of our current Chiefs to step up and let us focus on fewer needs.

Fantasy Notes:

The Bears got back on the winning track after enduring a big game from Reggie Bush. He must have read my comments on him not living up to his hype.

Poor Playaction31, his team has run up 420 points, yet is 1-4. On the other side, FrayedKnots has scored 404 points and is 4-1. Go figure.

Does anyone have a butter churn to donate? It would make a great gift for the team that has the most roster moves. Right now, AsylumAddicts has churned into the lead with 29 transactions. Come on, Lobo, someone is not trying. (just kidding)
