NFL Week 5 Picks: Here come the byes...

It's is week five of the NFL season. Hard to believe that a quarter of the season is already over. Yesterday, the NFL saw the passing of one of the greats in the league Al Davis. Mr. Davis has always been one of the more colorful characters in the NFL, and even though most Chiefs fans saw Al Davis as the Emperor of the evil empire, we appreciate that amongst all the crazy (especially the release of Marcus Allen which led to his coming to Kansas City), there was a method to Al's madness, and the NFL has been a better place for it. RIP, Mr. Davis.

My Chiefs finally won a game. Even though it was against the Vikings, I'll take it. I'll take every victory we can get this year. I swear, the Chiefs have been as bad as that Shannon Doherty Education Connection commercial (yeah, I couldn't believe that happened either). I so look forward to their bye week next week. I need the emotional break. It's often hard to be the fan of a relatively talented team who is swimming in mediocrity.


Tony Gonzalez Reception count is at 1090. Four away from tying Tim Brown, and five from being alone in Fourth place all time, and the good thing is that I get to watch tonight!!! Yay!!!

  1. I like Cincy, AZ, NE and Chi, but other than that we're the same on our picks. I wouldn't pick against Oakland today either. As dysfunctional as Al and his crew has been, it still seems sad that he's passed. I wonder if Marcus Allen will attend the funeral?
