Happy Week 13, everybody! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. The NFL Playoff picture is starting to come into focus. My Chiefs are currently in the Wildcard Spot, but they have a chance to pass Peyton and the Donks...I mean, Broncos tomorrow as the Hosses arrive at Arrowhead Stadium. Justin Houston will not make the game with an elbow injury, but Tamba Hali is playing to give it a go on his bad ankle. Let's hope they do a little more damage to Peyton Manning than they did to Philip Rivers last week (That...was a heartbreaker.).
We have now entered the final stretch of the Tony Gonzalez retirement tour. He has put an admirable performance posting 58 receptions, 611 yards, and 4 touchdowns. This with a bad toe and everybody in the league double teaming him to death. He should get the 121 yards he needs to become the first TE to break the 15,000 yard plateau, and go down in NFL history as the GREATEST TIGHT END EVER. Fight me. For the record, I will post my second annual "Farewell to Tony Gonzalez" edition before his final NFL game. Also, please note that Tony Gonzalez's retirement will in no way affect my ability to put him in practically every post. My blog...deal with it (Just playing, you know, I love you guys).
Ladies and gentlemen...Jimmy Graham...
Last Sunday saw me picks end in 6-6, but I pulled ahead going 2-1 on Thanksgiving day. My season record to date is now 100-75. This week...perfection? Let's hope.
